Background

    On April 10, 2020, TSA published a Request for Information: Air 
Cargo Security Options to Mitigate Costs of Compliance with 
International Security Requirements. See 85 FR 20234. The RFI requests 
information from the public, specifically the air cargo industry, 
relating to compliance with international security standards for the 
transport of air cargo by commercial aircraft operators. Effective June 
30, 2021, international standards require that all international air 
cargo carried by commercial aircraft operators (passenger and all-
cargo) be either screened or be received from another TSA-regulated 
entity that has applied security controls and/or screened the cargo. 
TSA is seeking information regarding options to reduce the burden on 
U.S. and foreign all-cargo aircraft operators in complying with the 
international standard, such as security controls implemented 
throughout the supply chain that provide a level of security 
commensurate with the screening of cargo before transport. Because TSA 
does not expect these standards to require changes to current 
procedures for cargo transported on passenger aircraft, this RFI is 
focused only on all-cargo operations.

Specific Issues for Discussion

    There are several areas in particular in which TSA seeks 
information and comment from the industry at the public meeting; these 
specific issues are identified in the RFI. See 85 FR at 20237-20238. 
These key issues are intended to help focus public comments on subjects 
that TSA must explore in order to complete its review of potential 
frameworks. The comments at the meeting need not be limited to these 
issues.

Participation at the Meeting

    The meeting is expected to begin at 10:00 a.m. and end by 12:00 
p.m. (EDT). Following an introduction by TSA, members of the public 
will be invited to ask clarifying questions or present their views.
    Individuals may address statements, questions, comments during the 
virtual meeting's specified ``open floor'' times, in the order they 
present themselves to the moderator. To accommodate as many questions 
as possible, the amount of time allocated to each speaker may be 
limited by TSA.

    (1) There will be no admission fee or other charge to attend or to 
participate in the meeting. The meeting may adjourn early if scheduled
