CPH Airport answers question about film and security.

I am planning a trip to Spain later this year and thought about bringing my Mamiya C220. Of course, the airport scanners vs film problem came up, so I submitted a question to Copenhagen Airport regarding how to get film through security. I know from other threads that slow speed film should be no problem with the hand luggage scanners, but I wanted to see what the official answer would be. Here is it:

"Security has specific instructions when it comes to analog film in hand luggage, as they are aware, that these film my not be exposable to X-ray.
In these cases you will have to purchase a filmbag, so that Security can inspect the contents with their hands. If required, they may need to supply this with ETD-test.
The filmbag will basically function like a darkroom.
According to the regulations Security have to be able to inspect the film with their hands, hence they will need to be in a filmbag, so that the film won´t risk any damage."

Do they mean that I should bring my own darkroom bag which I use to get the film on the reel? Then, are they going to unroll the films...? How do you read their answer?

(ETD-test: Explosives Trace Detection)
