    Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 44917, TSA has authority to provide for

provide for appropriate training, supervision, and equipment of FAMs. 
In furtherance of this authority, TSA policy requires that applicants 
for the Office of Law Enforcement/Federal Air Marshal positions meet 
certain medical and mental health standards.
    In order to evaluate whether applicants meet TSA standards, 
applicants must undergo a psychological evaluation determining that 
they do not have an established medical history or clinical diagnosis 
of psychosis, neurosis, or any other personality or mental disorder 
that clearly demonstrates a potential hazard to the performance of FAM 
duties or the safety of self or others. As part of the psychological

from work for medical or psychological reasons.

to the FAMS' Medical Programs Division (FAMS MPD) for initial screening 
via fax, electronic upload via scanning document, mail, or in person. 
The FAMS MPD screens all certification forms received. Any explanations 
for uncertified items received will generally require further review 
and follow-up by a personal psychologist or psychiatrist. This 
certification is carefully geared to capitalize on other elements of 
the assessment process, such as personal interviews, physical task 
assessment, background investigation, as well as the other components 
of the medical examination and assessment. TSA estimates that there 
will be 600 respondents annually.
    It will take each respondent approximately one hour to complete the 
certification form for a total annual hour burden of 600 hours.
