|Title: ●Indirect Air Carrier Security|
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is reducing the frequency of renewal applications for indirect air carriers (IACs). Currently, these entities must submit an application to renew their security program each year. Following a review of TSA’s regulatory requirements seeking to reduce the cost of compliance, TSA determined that the duration of the security program for these entities can be increased from one year to three years without having a negative impact on transportation security. TSA has prioritized promulgation of this deregulatory action to provide relief to an industry critical to maintaining the flow of commerce during the COVID-19 crisis.

Statement of Need:
Consistent with Executive Order 12866 and OMB Circular A-4, TSA identified portions of air cargo regulations that may be tailored to impose a lesser burden on society and that may improve government processes. Under 49 CFR 1548 indirect air carriers are required to renew their security programs each year. TSA's robust inspection and compliance requirements make the annual renewal requirement unnecessary.
Anticipated Costs and Benefits:
Cost saving to industry and TSA of $0.53 million annualized at a 7 percent discount rate in perpetuity. Cost savings arise from time saved due to a less frequent security program renewal cycle.
