Program requires 100 percent screening of cargo before loaded aboard aircraft
The Transportation Security Administration issued its final rule on U.S. air cargo security regulations on Thursday, making permanent the network of shippers, air forwarders, independent facilities and airlines that screen cargo before it’s loaded aboard aircraft.
TSA is asking for public comment on one portion of the final rule: fees for security threat assessments of CCSF personnel. The agency set a $21 fee in 2006, but needs between $31 and $51 to cover the cost of the screening.
