ACTION: Notice; recommended standards. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is publishing this PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16119 notice to provide recommended technical, medical, and behavioral standards for explosives detection canines. TSA is recommending these standards to assist transportation stakeholders in evaluating canines to be purchased for purposes of an explosive detection canine team to screen individuals and property in the public areas of airports in the United States. The recommended standards provided through this notice are consistent with the standards TSA requires for canines to be purchased for purposes of TSA’s explosive detection canine programs. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: CTC Resolution Team, Canine Training Center, Office of Training and Development, Transportation Security Administration, U.S. Department of Homeland Security; email to CTC_ ResolutionTeam@tsa.dhs.gov (Note: Address requires underscore, ‘‘_’’, between ‘‘CTC’’ and ‘‘Resolution.’’) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background TSA recognizes that canines successful at explosives detection in active and dynamic transportation environments are a specialized product. There is a clear distinction that separates these canines from the typical pet population or canines used/trained for tasks in a more controlled and repeatable environment. This specialization is even more pronounced in canines used to search individuals who may be wearing hidden improvised explosive devices. Both TSA and Congress recognize that a successful explosive detection canine begins with a canine that meets certain technical, behavioral, and medical standards before training begins. Section 1927 of the TSA Modernization Act,1 requires TSA to establish a working group composed of canine experts to develop standards and recommendations for the breeding and training of canines capable of detecting explosives, and to develop recommendations on how TSA can engage other stakeholders to further the development of domestic canine breeding capacity and training. To meet this requirement, TSA and the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology (S & T) Directorate identified partners in law enforcement, academia, and the working canine vendor community.2 This 1 Division K, Public Law 115–254 (132 Stat. 3186; Oct. 5, 2018). 2 The working group included representatives from the TSA Canine Training Center (CTC), Auburn University, DHS S&T Directorate, National E:\FR\FM\20MRN1.SGM Continued 20MRN1
