Keep Your Shoes ON When Going Through TSA

By |2021-11-10T14:35:32-05:00October 30, 2012|U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA)|

If you travel often, read on, you'll be glad you did. When was the last time you had the ability to go through security WITH YOUR SHOES ON? Without taking out your laptop? WITH your jacket on? Without having to take out your liquids? If this appeals to you, which it definitely did for me, you'll be pleased to know the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is partnering with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for TSA Pre-Check, an initiative that allows eligible passengers to qualify for expedited screening at participating airports.

TSA 100% Screening – The Air Cargo Advance Screening Pilot Takes Off

By |2021-11-10T14:48:50-05:00June 27, 2012|Import, U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA)|

On May 16, 2012, the Transportation Security Administration [TSA] announced - starting December 3, 2012, all international passenger air carriers destined for the United States will be subject to 100% cargo screening. TSA's website advises: "[g]lobal shippers and U.S. importers should contact their logistics partners to determine if these measures may have any impact on their supply chain." This process requires enhanced screening for shipments designated as higher risk, while lower risk shipments will undergo other physical screening protocols. How will this impact your supply chain?

TSA and Pepper Spray – A Story of What NOT to Do

By |2011-08-14T09:57:21-04:00August 14, 2011|Investigation, U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA)|

Our beloved Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has the responsibility of screening passengers to "ensure that certain items and persons prohibited from flying don't board commercial airliners." This is accomplished through 43,00 Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) located at 450 airports around the United States. For me, while I am waiting in line to be screened, there seems always to be one energetic TSO screaming at my fellow passengers to take our shoes off, remove most liquids, take our belts off, take out our laptops, etc.. it is hard to remember that the official Mission of the TSA is to "protect the Nation's transportation systems to ensure freedom of movement for people and commerce." I do have one funny story to tell you about the TSA and a certain passenger.

TSA 100% CARGO SCREENING RULE EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 2010

By |2010-04-07T15:40:23-04:00April 7, 2010|U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA)|

On January 11, 2010, I posted "You Ready for 100% Cargo Screening by the TSA" because at that time, the international aviation industry was not prepared for the implementation on August 1, 2010 of the TSA mandated 100% screening of air cargo aboard passenger planes. The date is fast approaching, and shippers, indirect air carriers (freight forwarders) and airlines which need to get "on board" should attend an important seminar.

DOES TSA’s 3-1-1 RULE FOR PASSENGERS’ CARRY-ON BAGS MAKE SENSE TO YOU?

By |2010-04-06T03:14:52-04:00April 6, 2010|U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA)|

I just returned from a wonderful trip to both Italy and Israel, and I can't help but compare our Transportation Security Administration (TSA) procedures to that of other countries. In both Italy and Israel, I did not have to take off my shoes or follow the all too familiar 3-1-1 TSA enforced liquid policy. Yet, on April 2, 2010, Department of Homeland Secretary Napolitano announced another set of security measures that hassle passengers who travel by air.

New TSA Penalties and Procedures

By |2009-10-26T11:35:13-04:00October 26, 2009|U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA)|

Effective August 20, 2009, the new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations increased the maximum amount of its monetary penalties against aircraft operators and freight forwarders/indirect air carriers (IACs) for violations of the Transportation Security Regulations. TSA also made significant change to its Investigative and Enforcement Procedures in 49 CFR Part 1503. There are ways to avoid being penalized by the TSA, or to reduce any monetary penalty assessed by the TSA for air cargo transportation related violations.
