TSA Amends Air Cargo Screening Rules: Eliminates 3rd-Party Certifiers

Posted on 8/19/2011 by James Griffin

Yesterday at 76 FR 51848, the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) in response to public comments amended two provisions of the Air Cargo Screening Interim Final Rule (IFR) originally issued on September 16, 2009.
In response to public comment, this Final Rule removes all provisions for creating a class of third-party validation firms. The TSA itself will continue to assess and certify cargo screening facilities under this program.
The August 18 Final Rule also deletes the requirement for aircraft carriers and foreign air carriers to comply with the Certified Cargo Screening Facility (CCSF) regulations. As their airport-based cargo screening is already regulated by TSA, there is no need for a separate certification to screen cargo off airport.
This rule also proposes a fee range for processing Security Threat Assessments and solicits comments on the methodology and range of fees.
This rule is effective starting September 19, 2011. Comments must be received by the TSA by September 19, 2011.
