A traveler also will not be permitted to fly if he or she declines to cooperate with the identity verification process. To initiate the identity verification process, a traveler without an acceptable verifying identity document must complete a Certification of Identity (COI) form (TSA Form 415). The current TSA Form 415 requests the traveler’s name and address. After completing the form, the traveler is connected with TSA’s Identity Verification Call Center (IVCC). The IVCC searches various commercial and government databases using the name and address on the TSA Form 415 as key search criteria to find other identifying information about the traveler. The IVCC then asks the traveler a series of questions based on information found in the databases to verify the individual’s identity. To ensure that the identity verification process described above does not become a means for travelers to circumvent implementation of the REAL ID Act, TSA is updating the process so that it is generally only available to travelers who certify that they— • Reside in or have been issued a driver’s license or state identification card by a state that is compliant with the REAL ID Act or a state that has been granted an extension by DHS; or • Have been issued another verifying identity document that TSA accepts. To enable travelers to make this certification, TSA is revising Form 415. The revised TSA Form 415 requests a traveler’s name and address and asks for the following additional information: (1) Whether the traveler has been issued a driver’s license or state identification card. (2) If yes, the state that issued the document. (3) Whether the traveler has been issued an acceptable verifying identity document other than a state-issued driver’s license or identification card. Use of Results TSA will use the information provided on revised TSA Form 415 to generate questions intended to verify the identity of a traveler who arrives at a security-screening checkpoint without an acceptable verifying identity document.

Other likely respondents are travelers who had their verifying identity document stolen and travelers carrying a form of identification that they incorrectly believed to be acceptable. TSA estimates that approximately 191,214 passengers will complete the TSA Form 415 annually. TSA estimates each form will take approximately three minutes to complete.

Information Collection Requirement

Purpose and Description of Data Collection

    TSA requires individuals to provide an acceptable verifying 
identity document in order to proceed through security screening, enter 
the sterile area of the airport, or board a commercial aircraft. Under 
49 CFR 1560.3, acceptable verifying identity documents include 
federally-issued documents, such as U.S. passports and U.S. passport 
cards, passports issued by foreign governments, and state-issued 
driver's licenses and identification cards. The complete list of 
acceptable verifying identity documents is available at www.tsa.gov/sites/default/files/resources/realid_factsheet_071516-508.pdf.
    Secure driver's licenses and identification documents are a vital 
component of the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS's) national 
security strategy. In particular, preventing terrorists from obtaining 
state-issued identification documents is critical to securing the 
United States against terrorism. The 9/11 Commission noted ``[f]or

    \3\ The REAL ID Act defines the term ``State'' to mean ``a State 
of the United States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the 
Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, 
the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, and any other territory 
or possession of the United States.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To implement the REAL ID Act, TSA may accept state-issued verifying 
identity documents only if they have been issued by a state that is in 
compliance with the minimum security requirements and standards set 
forth in the Act, or if the state has received an extension from DHS. 
In accordance with DHS policy, TSA will begin implementing the REAL ID 
Act at airport security screening checkpoints on January 22, 2018. 
Starting on that day, TSA will not accept state-issued driver's 
licenses and other state-issued identification cards from states that 
are not compliant with REAL ID Act requirements unless DHS has granted 
the state a temporary extension to achieve compliance.
    Concurrently with implementation of the REAL ID Act, TSA is 
updating the identity verification process for travelers who arrive at 
an airport security checkpoint without an acceptable verifying identity 
document. This process involves a traveler providing his or her name 
and address and answering questions to confirm his or her identity. If 
the traveler's identity is confirmed, he or she will be allowed to 
enter the screening checkpoint. Travelers using this process for 
identity verification may be subject to additional security screening. 
A traveler will not be permitted to fly if his or her identity cannot 
be confirmed. A traveler also will not be permitted to fly if he or she 
declines to cooperate with the identity verification process.
    To initiate the identity verification process, a traveler without 
an acceptable verifying identity document must complete a Certification 
of Identity (COI) form (TSA Form 415). The current TSA Form 415

using the name and address on the TSA Form 415 as key search criteria 
to find other identifying information about the traveler. The IVCC then 
asks the traveler a series of questions based on information found in 
the databases to verify the individual's identity.
    To ensure that the identity verification process described above 
does not become a means for travelers to circumvent implementation of 
the REAL ID Act, TSA is updating the process so that it is generally 
only available to travelers who certify that they--
     Reside in or have been issued a driver's license or state 
identification card by a state that is compliant with the REAL ID Act 
or a state that has been granted an extension by DHS; or
     Have been issued another verifying identity document that 
TSA accepts.
    To enable travelers to make this certification, TSA is revising 
Form 415. The revised TSA Form 415 requests a traveler's name and 
address and asks for the following additional information:
    (1) Whether the traveler has been issued a driver's license or 
state identification card.
    (2) If yes, the state that issued the document.
    (3) Whether the traveler has been issued an acceptable verifying 
identity document other than a state-issued driver's license or 
identification card.

Use of Results

    TSA will use the information provided on revised TSA Form 415 to 
generate questions intended to verify the identity of a traveler who 
arrives at a security-screening checkpoint without an acceptable 
verifying identity document. A failure to collect this information 
would result in TSA being unable to verify the identity of travelers 
without an acceptable verifying identity document and these travelers 
being unable to proceed through the security checkpoint and board a 
commercial aircraft.
    The most likely respondents to this proposed information request 
are travelers who arrive at an airport security checkpoint without an 
acceptable verifying identity document because they lost or forgot 
their driver's license or other state-issued identification card. Other 
likely respondents are travelers who had their verifying identity 
document stolen and travelers carrying a form of identification that 
they incorrectly believed to be acceptable. TSA estimates that 
approximately 191,214 passengers will complete the TSA Form 415 
annually. TSA estimates each form will take approximately three minutes 
to complete. This collection would result in an annual reporting burden 
of 9,561 hours.
