The data used to conduct a comprehensive security threat assessment includes: (1) A criminal history records check; (2) a check of intelligence databases; and (3) an immigration status check. TSA may also use the data to determine a TWIC® holder’s eligibility to participate in TSA’s expedited screening program for air travel, TSA Pre✓®, without requiring an additional background check. At the enrollment center, applicants verify their biographic information and provide identity documentation, biometric information, and proof of immigration status (if required). This information allows TSA to complete a security threat assessment. During enrollment, TSA collects from applicants a $125.25 fee for standard enrollment. (Effective October 1, 2016, TSA reduced the standard enrollment fee by $2.75 in alignment to the FBI’s fee update for fingerprint-based criminal history records checks.) If TSA determines that the applicant is eligible to receive a TWIC®, TSA issues and sends an activated TWIC® card to the address provided by the applicant or notifies the applicant that their TWIC® is ready for pick up and activation at an enrollment center. Once activated, this credential will be used for facility and vessel access control requirements to include card authentication, card validation, and identity verification. In the event of a lost, damaged or stolen credential, the cardholder may request a replacement card from an enrollment center for a $60.00 fee. The one-time temporary Extended Expiration Date (EED) TWIC® renewal option and collection requirement is discontinued. TSA also conducts a survey to capture applicant and cardholder overall satisfaction with the enrollment and activation process. This optional customer satisfaction survey is provided at the end of enrollment and at the end of the activation processes. Number of New TWIC® Enrollments: An estimated 519,710 annually. Total Annual Hour Burden: An estimated 738,748 annually including enrollment, issuance, and appeal/waiver burden hours. Enrollment Burden Hours: An estimated 592,574 annually.
