Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 (SAFE Port Act), Public Law 
109-347 (October 13, 2006). This rule requires all credentialed 
merchant mariners and individuals with unescorted access to secure 
areas of a regulated facility or vessel to obtain a TWIC. In this final 
rule, on page 3510, TSA and Coast Guard stated that a phased enrollment
