TSA 100% CARGO SCREENING RULE EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 2010

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?

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

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.
