SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    TSA created the Third-Party Canine-Cargo (3PK9-C) Program, under 
TSA's regulations for Certified Cargo Screening Programs (CCSP), see 49 
CFR part 1549, to provide an efficient and effective method for 
screening air cargo to TSA's standards. Under this program, third-party 
canine teams trained in explosives detection can be certified by a non-
governmental entity, acting under the approval of TSA, as meeting TSA's 
certification standards. Certified 3PK9-C teams can be deployed to 
screen air cargo for aircraft operators, foreign air carriers, and 
other TSA-regulated parties operating under a TSA-approved or accepted 
security program.
    On May 18, 2018, TSA published a notice in the Federal Register 
seeking applications from qualified persons interested in becoming an 
approved 3PK9-C Certifier under the 3PK9-C Program. See 83 FR 23287.
    The CCSP-K9 security program will define the requirements that TSA-
regulated canine explosives detection teams must meet when screening 
cargo for air carriers and screening facilities and will include 
eligibility requirements for canine explosives detection teams. These 
eligibility requirements for canine explosives detection teams include, 
but are not limited to, experience, education, vetting, and citizenship 
requirements for canine team handlers. These eligibility requirements 
for canine explosives detection teams are not contained in the 3PK9 
Certifier Order. The 3PK9 Security Program and Order
