PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 30979 Information Collection Requirement Title: TSA PreCheckTM Application Program. Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection. OMB Control Number: 1652–0059. Form(s): NA. Affected Public: Air Travelers. Abstract: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) implemented the TSA PreCheck Application Program pursuant to its authority under sec. 109(a)(3) of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA), Public Law 107–71 (115 Stat. 597, 613, Nov. 19, 2001, codified at 49 U.S.C. 114 note), which authorizes TSA to establish registered traveler programs, as well as section 540 of the DHS Appropriations Act, 2006, Public Law 109–90 (119 Stat. 2064, 2088–89, Oct. 18, 2005), which requires TSA to collect a fee for any registered traveler program by publication of a notice in the Federal Register. The TSA PreCheck Application Program enhances aviation security by permitting TSA to more effectively focus its limited security resources on passengers for whom TSA has little information, while also facilitating and improving the commercial aviation travel experience for the public. Travelers who choose not to enroll in this initiative are not subject to any limitations on their travel because of their choice; they will be processed through TSA screening before entering the sterile areas of airports. TSA also retains the authority to perform standard or other screening on a random basis on TSA PreCheck Application Program participants and any other travelers authorized to receive expedited physical screening. Under the TSA PreCheck Application Program, individuals submit biographic (including, but not limited to, name, date of birth, gender, prior and current addresses, contact information, country of birth, images of identity documents, proof of citizenship/immigration status) and biometric (such as fingerprints, iris scans, and/or facial images) information to TSA’s enrollment providers. Enrollment providers transmit these data via secure interface to TSA. Referencing law enforcement, citizenship or immigration, regulatory violation, and intelligence databases, TSA uses applicants’ biographic and biometric information collected during pre-enrollment, enrollment, or postenrollment to conduct security threat assessments (STAs) and to verify applicants’ identity (at enrollment and/ or at the time of travel) and citizenship. TSA uses STA results to determine E:\FR\FM\21MYN1.SGM 21MYN1 30980 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 99 / Thursday, May 21, 2020 / Notices whether an individual poses a low risk to transportation or national security justifying eligibility for TSA PreCheck. TSA makes the final determination on eligibility for the TSA PreCheck Application Program and notifies the applicant of the decision. On average, applicants receive notification from TSA within two to three weeks of the submission of their completed applications. Approved applicants are issued a Known Traveler Number (KTN) that is used for multiple purposes. Airline passengers who submit their KTN when making airline reservations may be eligible for expedited screening on flights originating from U.S. airports.1 TSA uses the traveler’s KTN and other information during passenger pre-screening to verify that the individual traveling matches the information on TSA’s list of known travelers and to confirm TSA PreCheck expedited screening eligibility. TSA may also use the information collected, or verify the KTN and KTN-holder information, to determine a KTN holder’s eligibility for other programs, such as potential eligibility for a reduced fee for another vetting program or participation in other DHS Trusted Traveler programs. TSA also will use the information submitted for identity verification at airport security checkpoints. Eligibility for the TSA PreCheck Application Program is within the sole discretion of TSA, which provides written notification to applicants denied eligibility, including reasons for the denial. Applicants who are initially deemed ineligible or are later identified to be ineligible due to the identification of new disqualifying information through recurrent vetting have an opportunity to correct cases of misidentification or inaccurate criminal or citizenship/immigration records. For example, if advised during the application eligibility review process that the criminal record discloses a disqualifying criminal offense, the applicant has 60 days from the date of the denial letter to submit written notification of an intent to correct any information he or she believes to be inaccurate. The applicant must also provide a certified, revised record, or the appropriate court must forward a certified true copy of the information. TSA will review any information 1 Passengers who are eligible for expedited screening typically will receive more limited physical screening, e.g., will be able to leave on their shoes, light outerwear, and belt, to keep their laptop in its case, and to keep their 3–1–1 compliant liquids/gels bag in a carry-on. For airports with dedicated TSA PreCheck lanes, see https://www.tsa.gov/precheck/map. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 May 20, 2020 Jkt 250001 submitted and make a final decision. If TSA does not receive a notification or a corrected record, the agency may make a final determination to deny eligibility. Individuals ineligible for the TSA PreCheck Application Program are screened at airport security checkpoints pursuant to TSA’s screening protocols. TSA is seeking a revision to the currently approved request to reflect additional enrollment and enrollment provider options in accordance with the TSA Modernization Act, Division K of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018, Public Law 115–254 (132 Stat. 3185; Oct. 5, 2018) at section 1937, codified at 49 U.S.C. 44919. TSA expects enrollment providers to offer additional TSA PreCheck Application Program enrollment opportunities at airports to reduce the burden on frequent travelers. As TSA continues to improve identity verification at enrollment, enrollment providers may use public records, commercial sources, or other databases containing identity information to assist in identity verification. This revision also addresses TSA’s plans to utilize DHS components’ services, provided via U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Office of Biometric Identity Management, to support TSA’s biometric-based identification at the checkpoint and citizenship verification through passport information provided by the Department of State. Lastly, TSA intends to collect information from TSA PreCheck members after enrollment through additional surveys to determine satisfaction and customer engagement with TSA PreCheck. Average Annual Number of Respondents: An estimated 6,533,518 average respondents over a three-year period. This estimate includes initial enrollments, renewals, and current members who would respond to voluntary surveys, as well as nonrenewing individuals who respond to voluntary surveys. Average Annual Number of Responses: An estimated 8,080,040 average responses over a three-year period. There could be multiple responses per respondent depending on the requested information. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 3,397,652 average hours based on a three-year projection.2 This estimate includes the time for preenrollment, all aspects of enrollment (including voluntary surveys), and correction of records if needed. Estimated Cost Burden: A $252,601,799 average cost burden based 2 TSA updated the annual estimates for the respondents and burden hours since the submission of the 60-day notice, which indicated respondents of 3,113,122 and burden hours of 4,211,661. PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 on a three-year projection. With the addition of multiple enrollment providers, TSA plans to allow each provider to set its own enrollment fee. As such, TSA expects that the publicfacing TSA PreCheck fee will vary across providers. In addition, TSA expects that the renewal fee will also decrease. For the purposes of estimating a cost burden, TSA has estimated that the fee will be approximately $85 for initial enrollments and drop to approximately $75 for renewals. These fees cover TSA’s program costs, the FBI fee for the criminal history records check when required, and enrollment providers’ costs. Dated: May 15, 2020. Christina A.

Information Collection Requirement

    Title: TSA PreCheck\TM\ Application Program.
    Type of Request: Revision of currently approved collection.
    OMB Control Number: 1652-0059.
    Form(s): NA.
    Affected Public: Air Travelers.
    Abstract: The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) 
implemented the TSA PreCheck Application Program pursuant to its 
authority under sec. 109(a)(3) of the Aviation and Transportation 
Security Act (ATSA), Public Law 107-71 (115 Stat. 597, 613, Nov. 19, 
2001, codified at 49 U.S.C. 114 note), which authorizes TSA to 
establish registered traveler programs, as well as section 540 of the 
DHS Appropriations Act, 2006, Public Law 109-90 (119 Stat. 2064, 2088-
89, Oct. 18, 2005), which requires TSA to collect a fee for any 
registered traveler program by publication of a notice in the Federal 
Register.
    The TSA PreCheck Application Program enhances aviation security by 
permitting TSA to more effectively focus its limited security resources 
on passengers for whom TSA has little information, while also 
facilitating and improving the commercial aviation travel experience 
for the public. Travelers who choose not to enroll in this initiative 
are not subject to any limitations on their travel because of their 
choice; they will be processed through TSA screening before entering 
the sterile areas of airports. TSA also retains the authority to 
perform standard or other screening on a random basis on TSA PreCheck 
Application Program participants and any other travelers authorized to 
receive expedited physical screening.
    Under the TSA PreCheck Application Program, individuals submit 
biographic (including, but not limited to, name, date of birth, gender, 
prior and current addresses, contact information, country of birth, 
images of identity documents, proof of citizenship/immigration status) 
and biometric (such as fingerprints, iris scans, and/or facial images) 
information to TSA's enrollment providers. Enrollment providers 
transmit these data via secure interface to TSA. Referencing law 
enforcement, citizenship or immigration, regulatory violation, and 
intelligence databases, TSA uses applicants' biographic and biometric 
information collected during pre-enrollment, enrollment, or post-
enrollment to conduct security threat assessments (STAs) and to verify 
applicants' identity (at enrollment and/or at the time of travel) and 
citizenship. TSA uses STA results to determine

[[Page 30980]]

whether an individual poses a low risk to transportation or national 
security justifying eligibility for TSA PreCheck.
    TSA makes the final determination on eligibility for the TSA 
PreCheck Application Program and notifies the applicant of the 
decision. On average, applicants receive notification from TSA within 
two to three weeks of the submission of their completed applications. 
Approved applicants are issued a Known Traveler Number (KTN) that is 
used for multiple purposes. Airline passengers who submit their KTN 
when making airline reservations may be eligible for expedited 
screening on flights originating from U.S. airports.\1\ TSA uses the 
traveler's KTN and other information during passenger pre-screening to 
verify that the individual traveling matches the information on TSA's 
list of known travelers and to confirm TSA PreCheck expedited screening 
eligibility. TSA may also use the information collected, or verify the 
KTN and KTN-holder information, to determine a KTN holder's eligibility 
for other programs, such as potential eligibility for a reduced fee for 
another vetting program or participation in other DHS Trusted Traveler 
programs. TSA also will use the information submitted for identity 
verification at airport security checkpoints.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Passengers who are eligible for expedited screening 
typically will receive more limited physical screening, e.g., will 
be able to leave on their shoes, light outerwear, and belt, to keep 
their laptop in its case, and to keep their 3-1-1 compliant liquids/
gels bag in a carry-on. For airports with dedicated TSA PreCheck 
lanes, see https://www.tsa.gov/precheck/map.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Eligibility for the TSA PreCheck Application Program is within the 
sole discretion of TSA, which provides written notification to 
applicants denied eligibility, including reasons for the denial. 
Applicants who are initially deemed ineligible or are later identified 
to be ineligible due to the identification of new disqualifying 
information through recurrent vetting have an opportunity to correct 
cases of misidentification or inaccurate criminal or citizenship/
immigration records. For example, if advised during the application 
eligibility review process that the criminal record discloses a 
disqualifying criminal offense, the applicant has 60 days from the date 
of the denial letter to submit written notification of an intent to 
correct any information he or she believes to be inaccurate. The 
applicant must also provide a certified, revised record, or the 
appropriate court must forward a certified true copy of the 
information. TSA will review any information submitted and make a final 
decision. If TSA does not receive a notification or a corrected record, 
the agency may make a final determination to deny eligibility. 
Individuals ineligible for the TSA PreCheck Application Program are 
screened at airport security checkpoints pursuant to TSA's screening 
protocols.
    TSA is seeking a revision to the currently approved request to 
reflect additional enrollment and enrollment provider options in 
accordance with the TSA Modernization Act, Division K of the FAA 
Reauthorization Act of 2018, Public Law 115-254 (132 Stat. 3185; Oct. 
5, 2018) at section 1937, codified at 49 U.S.C. 44919. TSA expects 
enrollment providers to offer additional TSA PreCheck Application 
Program enrollment opportunities at airports to reduce the burden on 
frequent travelers. As TSA continues to improve identity verification 
at enrollment, enrollment providers may use public records, commercial 
sources, or other databases containing identity information to assist 
in identity verification. This revision also addresses TSA's plans to 
utilize DHS components' services, provided via U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection and the Office of Biometric Identity Management, to support 
TSA's biometric-based identification at the checkpoint and citizenship 
verification through passport information provided by the Department of 
State. Lastly, TSA intends to collect information from TSA PreCheck 
members after enrollment through additional surveys to determine 
satisfaction and customer engagement with TSA PreCheck.
    Average Annual Number of Respondents: An estimated 6,533,518 
average respondents over a three-year period. This estimate includes 
initial enrollments, renewals, and current members who would respond to 
voluntary surveys, as well as non-renewing individuals who respond to 
voluntary surveys.
    Average Annual Number of Responses: An estimated 8,080,040 average 
responses over a three-year period. There could be multiple responses 
per respondent depending on the requested information.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 3,397,652 average hours 
based on a three-year projection.\2\ This estimate includes the time 
for pre-enrollment, all aspects of enrollment (including voluntary 
surveys), and correction of records if needed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ TSA updated the annual estimates for the respondents and 
burden hours since the submission of the 60-day notice, which 
indicated respondents of 3,113,122 and burden hours of 4,211,661.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Estimated Cost Burden: A $252,601,799 average cost burden based on 
a three-year projection. With the addition of multiple enrollment 
providers, TSA plans to allow each provider to set its own enrollment 
fee. As such, TSA expects that the public-facing TSA PreCheck fee will 
vary across providers. In addition, TSA expects that the renewal fee 
will also decrease. For the purposes of estimating a cost burden, TSA 
has estimated that the fee will be approximately $85 for initial 
enrollments and drop to approximately $75 for renewals. These fees 
cover TSA's program costs, the FBI fee for the criminal history records 
check when required, and enrollment providers' costs.
