TSA is revising this collection to include the addition of risk-based assessments generated by aircraft operators using data in their Computer Assisted Passenger Prescreening Systems (CAPPS), Frequent Flyer Code Words (FFCWs) generated by aircraft operators, and the collection of lists of low-risk individuals provided by nonfederal entities who are eligible for expedited screening. The CAPPS assessments and FFCWs are used in risk-based analysis of Secure Flight and other prescreening data that produces a boarding pass printing result (BPPR) for each passenger.

period soliciting comments, of the following collection of information 
on September 1, 2015, 80 FR 52778. The collection involves implementing 
certain provisions of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act and 
49 U.S.C. chapter 449 that relate to providing for the safety and 
security of persons and property on an aircraft operating in air 
transportation or intrastate air transportation against an act of 
criminal violence, aircraft piracy, and the introduction of an 
unauthorized weapon, explosive, or incendiary onto an aircraft.

Employment Standards.
