TSA Reduces IAC Renewals to Every 3 Years 2

Februar 12, 2024

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has announced a modification to the 49 CFR 1548.7, shifting the renewal frequency for Indirect Air Carriers (IACs) from annually to once every three years. This adjustment aims to alleviate compliance burdens, allowing IACs to allocate resources to other operational priorities without compromising aviation security. Despite concerns raised by some industry associations, TSA asserts that the change will not sacrifice security for economic relief, emphasizing that it aligns with regulatory review principles and will generate significant cost savings over a decade. TSA plans to maintain robust oversight through a combination of regular inspections, assessments, and supplemental measures to ensure ongoing compliance with security requirements. The effective date of this modification is March 11, 2024.
