TSA Compliance for Indirect Air Carriers



The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) cargo security requirements for indirect air carriers (IACs) are again undergoing a dramatic change.  As international freight forwarders a/k/a indirect air carriers have noticed, there are increased visits by TSA personnel to warehouse facilities resulting in an increased number of violations and penalties against IACs.

The National Educational Institute (NEI) of the National Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association of America (NCBFAA) is hosting a webinar entitled "TSA Compliance for IACs" on Thursday, February 28, 2013, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EST. to discuss:
  1. How To Mitigate Penalties Assessed by TSA
  2. Transporation Security Regulations in 49 CFR   
  3. Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP)
  4. National Country Security Program (NSCP)
  5. Air Cargo Advanced Screening Program (ACAS)
 The Presenters will be Brandon Fried, Executive Director, AirForwarders Association, a Washington, D.C. based organization representing the air freight forwarding industry, and Peter Quinter, Shareholder and Chair of the Customs and International Trade Law Group at the law firm of GrayRobinson.  Mr. Quinter represents air carriers and IACs regarding TSA compliance and penalty matters.

Registration for the webinar is through the NEI by email at NEI@NCBFAA.org or (202) 466-0222. For more information about the webinar, click here.
