TIACA lauds TSA’s relaxing of screening reports


of screening reports TIACA has welcomed the US Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA’s) decision to lift requirements for air cargo screening reports, less than a year after calling for the regulation to be axed. TSA has announced that it will no longer require the industry to provide air cargo screening volume reporting, a requirement which TIACA warned last Fall was putting strain on the industry.

“This will significantly relieve the reporting burden on industry, saving many labor and IT hours,” said Doug Brittin, secretary general, TIACA. All passenger carriers, and over 1,200 Certified freight forwarders and shippers in the US, have been required to measure and provide these reports monthly. We applaud this move as a positive step towards adopting a risk-based approach versus forensic compliance,” Brittin said.
