Summary The TSA PreCheck® Application Program is a voluntary, expedited security screening program connecting low-risk travelers departing from the United States with smarter security and a better air travel experience.1 There are approximately 10 million members in the TSA PreCheck® Application Program. Individuals enrolled in the TSA PreCheck® Application Program are eligible to receive expedited screening at U.S. airports. As explained in a December 2013 Notice in the Federal Register,2 membership in the TSA PreCheck® Application Program is within the sole discretion of TSA. Individuals may also receive TSA PreCheck® expedited screening via membership in other programs such as certain U.S. Customs and Border Protection Trusted Traveler Programs. These individuals do not pay a fee to TSA for membership in such other programs. TSA established the TSA PreCheck® Application Program in December 2013 to expand access to expedited screening to individuals who voluntarily provide information that TSA uses to determine whether the traveler is low risk.3 TSA uses biographic and biometric information the applicant provides to conduct a Security Threat Assessment (STA) that includes review of criminal history, immigration, intelligence, and regulatory violation records. As part of the enrollment process, TSA requires that applicants present governmentissued identity documents with a photo to prove their identity. To prepare for REAL ID enforcement, in advance of the REAL ID card-based enforcement 1 For purpose of this document, the ‘‘TSA PreCheck Application Program’’ refers to the DHS Trusted Traveler Program that TSA operates to determine if individuals are low-risk and may receive expedited screening. ‘‘TSA PreCheck’’ refers to expedited screening provided by TSA. 2 See Notice, 78 FR 72922 (December 4, 2013). 3 Id. PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 deadline,4 TSA will require new TSA PreCheck® Application Program applicants as well as renewal applicants to provide a REAL ID-compliant document if enrolling with a stateissued identity document. Applicants must also prove they are a U.S. person. Following enrollment, TSA evaluates the information generated by the vetting process to determine whether the individual poses a low risk to transportation and national security. Once completed, the STA remains valid for five years, provided the individual continues to meet the eligibility standards. At the end of the five-year term, individuals wishing to maintain their TSA PreCheck® Application Program eligibility must renew their membership in the program which includes a new STA. If TSA determines that the applicant is low risk, TSA issues a Known Traveler Number (KTN) 5 that the individual can use when making flight reservations. Enrollment in the TSA PreCheck® Application Program and use of the associated KTN do not guarantee that an individual will receive expedited screening at airport security checkpoints. TSA retains an element of randomness to maintain unpredictability for security purposes, and travelers with valid KTNs may be selected for standard or enhanced physical screening on occasion. An individual is ineligible for a KTN and thus access to TSA PreCheck® expedited screening if TSA determines that the individual poses a risk to transportation or national security; has committed certain criminal acts; 6 does not meet the immigration status standards; 7 has committed regulatory violations; 8 or is otherwise not a lowrisk traveler. TSA notifies individuals who it determines are ineligible for a KTN through the TSA PreCheck Application Program, or whose enrollment in the program is revoked, in writing, and they continue to undergo 4 Information regarding REAL ID requirements and enforcement deadlines is available at www.dhs.gov/real-id. 5 The Known Traveler Number is a component of Secure Flight Passenger Data, which is defined in TSA Secure Flight regulations at 49 CFR 1560.3. See also the Secure Flight regulations at 49 CFR part 1560. 6 See 49 CFR 1572.103 for the criminal standards that apply to TSA PreCheck applicants. 7 Individuals who apply for membership in the TSA PreCheck® Application Program must be U.S. citizens, U.S. Nationals, or Lawful Permanent Residents. 8 For instance, an individual who interferes with security screening or brings a weapon to the security checkpoint would be deemed ineligible for TSA PreCheck® expedited screening and their membership in the program may be revoked.

TSA is required by law to charge a non-refundable fee to cover the costs of operating the TSA PreCheck® Application Program.9 Collecting biographic and biometric information from applicants, conducting the STA, adjudicating the results of the STA, and managing the program 10 generate costs for TSA and for the enrollment providers who TSA has selected to help facilitate enrollment into the program. In the December 2013 Notice, TSA established a fee structure with a total fee of $85.11 That total fee was comprised of a TSA Fee of $70.50 and an Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Fee of $14.50. The TSA Fee included costs incurred by TSA as well as costs incurred by the enrollment provider. The FBI Fee was the cost set to conduct a fingerprint-based criminal history records check. In July 2021, TSA published a notice announcing the anticipated launch of additional enrollment providers who will be able to establish additional price points for the TSA PreCheck® Application Program.12 TSA expects additional enrollment options through these providers to become available in 2021 to increase opportunities to apply for membership in the program. The new fee structure reflects this change in the program and will now consist of a TSA Component and Enrollment Provider Component that together, will be the Total Fee. The Enrollment Provider Component will take into account the cost of the criminal history records check conducted by the FBI. TSA will continue to publish the total fee amounts for all enrollment options via the agency’s website at www.tsa.gov/ precheck. lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 II. Discussion of TSA Fee Change TSA will impose the TSA Component of the fee for all individuals who apply for and renew membership. The TSA Component of the fee will be collected by the enrollment providers and remitted to TSA to cover the TSA costs to operate this successful traveler program for approximately 10 million travelers. Consistent with the statutory mandate,13 the TSA Component of the fee recovers TSA’s costs to analyze the immigration, terrorism, criminal, and regulatory violation information generated in the checks of the various 9 See 49 U.S.C. 114; § 540 of the DHS appropriations act of 2006, Public Law 109–90 (119 Stat. 2064, 2088–89, Oct. 18, 2005). 10 Id. 11 See supra n. 2 at 72925 et seq. 12 See Notice, 86 FR 36293 (July 9, 2021). 13 See infra n. 9.

The STA conducted by TSA will cover a term of five years from the date of approval and must be renewed with TSA at the end of that term if an individual wishes to maintain their TSA PreCheck® eligibility. Enrollment providers will be permitted to offer shorter duration memberships (e.g., oneyear memberships) but must still remit the full TSA Component fee at initial enrollment to TSA to cover TSA’s fiveyear costs. If a member allows the membership to lapse for any period of time and subsequently applies for renewal, the enrollment provider must remit the full TSA Component fee again. TSA has determined that the TSA Component must be $42.75 in order to cover TSA-costs associated with STAs and operating the TSA PreCheck® Application Program. While TSA was able to achieve a small reduction in operating costs during the global pandemic (approximately $20 million), TSA experienced a significant reduction in revenue as a direct result of the measurable decline in air travel, program enrollments, and program renewals. TSA estimates that from April 2020 through March 2021 TSA experienced a $65 million reduction in anticipated revenue. While TSA PreCheck® enrollment recovered significantly as of the summer of 2021, TSA must account for lost revenue and unknown future enrollment volumes given unknown long term travel recovery. By separating the TSA Component and the Enrollment Provider Component, TSA can ensure that future revenue covers TSA’s costs while promoting pricing transparency as new enrollment providers compete for applicants.

TSA offers an option for online renewal of TSA PreCheck Application® Program membership and over 95% of individuals choose the online renewal option. With this notice, TSA is announcing that the fee for online renewal will be $70.00 for enrollments through the Universal Enrollment Services enrollment provider. Future changes to this enrollment product and fees will be published on the TSA website at www.tsa.gov/precheck. TSA estimates that the new TSA Component fee, will result in collections of an additional $44 million between Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 and FY 2025. This increased revenue will ensure that the TSA PreCheck Application® Program will remain solvent in future years. The increased revenue will also allow TSA to invest in improvements to the TSA PreCheck® airport experience. TSA will continue to monitor its costs and enrollments to ensure the program remains viable and the revenue aligns with cost. The cost estimates used to determine the fee have been developed in accordance with the applicable statutory language, section 540 of the DHS Appropriations Act, 2006, and Office of Management and Budget Circular A–25.

I. Summary

    The TSA PreCheck[supreg] Application Program is a voluntary, 
expedited security screening program connecting low-risk travelers 
departing from the United States with smarter security and a better air 
travel experience.\1\ There are approximately 10 million members in the 
TSA PreCheck[supreg] Application Program. Individuals enrolled in the 
TSA PreCheck[supreg] Application Program are eligible to receive 
expedited screening at U.S. airports. As explained in a December 2013 
Notice in the Federal Register,\2\ membership in the TSA 
PreCheck[supreg] Application Program is within the sole discretion of 
TSA. Individuals may also receive TSA PreCheck[supreg] expedited 
screening via membership in other programs such as certain U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection Trusted Traveler Programs. These individuals do 
not pay a fee to TSA for membership in such other programs.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For purpose of this document, the ``TSA PreCheck Application 
Program'' refers to the DHS Trusted Traveler Program that TSA 
operates to determine if individuals are low-risk and may receive 
expedited screening. ``TSA PreCheck'' refers to expedited screening 
provided by TSA.
    \2\ See Notice, 78 FR 72922 (December 4, 2013).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    TSA established the TSA PreCheck[supreg] Application Program in 
December 2013 to expand access to expedited screening to individuals 
who voluntarily provide information that TSA uses to determine whether 
the traveler is low risk.\3\ TSA uses biographic and biometric 
information the applicant provides to conduct a Security Threat 
Assessment (STA) that includes review of criminal history, immigration, 
intelligence, and regulatory violation records. As part of the 
enrollment process, TSA requires that applicants present government-
issued identity documents with a photo to prove their identity. To 
prepare for REAL ID enforcement, in advance of the REAL ID card-based 
enforcement deadline,\4\ TSA will require new TSA PreCheck[supreg] 
Application Program applicants as well as renewal applicants to provide 
a REAL ID-compliant document if enrolling with a state-issued identity 
document. Applicants must also prove they are a U.S. person.

    \3\ Id.
    \4\ Information regarding REAL ID requirements and enforcement 
deadlines is available at www.dhs.gov/real-id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Following enrollment, TSA evaluates the information generated by 
the vetting process to determine whether the individual poses a low 
risk to transportation and national security. Once completed, the STA 
remains valid for five years, provided the individual continues to meet 
the eligibility standards. At the end of the five-year term, 
individuals wishing to maintain their TSA PreCheck[supreg] Application 
Program eligibility must renew their membership in the program which 
includes a new STA.
    If TSA determines that the applicant is low risk, TSA issues a 
Known Traveler Number (KTN) \5\ that the individual can use when making 
flight reservations. Enrollment in the TSA PreCheck[supreg] Application 
Program and use of the associated KTN do not guarantee that an 
individual will receive expedited screening at airport security 
checkpoints. TSA retains an element of randomness to maintain 
unpredictability for security purposes, and travelers with valid KTNs 
may be selected for standard or enhanced physical screening on 
occasion.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ The Known Traveler Number is a component of Secure Flight 
Passenger Data, which is defined in TSA Secure Flight regulations at 
49 CFR 1560.3. See also the Secure Flight regulations at 49 CFR part 
1560.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    An individual is ineligible for a KTN and thus access to TSA 
PreCheck[supreg] expedited screening if TSA determines that the 
individual poses a risk to transportation or national security; has 
committed certain criminal acts; \6\ does not meet the immigration 
status standards; \7\ has committed regulatory violations; \8\ or is 
otherwise not a low-risk traveler. TSA notifies individuals who it 
determines are ineligible for a KTN through the TSA PreCheck 
Application Program, or whose enrollment in the program is revoked, in 
writing, and they continue to undergo

    \6\ See 49 CFR 1572.103 for the criminal standards that apply to 
TSA PreCheck applicants.
    \7\ Individuals who apply for membership in the TSA 
PreCheck[supreg] Application Program must be U.S. citizens, U.S. 
Nationals, or Lawful Permanent Residents.
    \8\ For instance, an individual who interferes with security 
screening or brings a weapon to the security checkpoint would be 
deemed ineligible for TSA PreCheck[supreg] expedited screening and 
their membership in the program may be revoked.

    TSA is required by law to charge a non-refundable fee to cover the 
costs of operating the TSA PreCheck[supreg] Application Program.\9\ 
Collecting biographic and biometric information from applicants, 
conducting the STA, adjudicating the results of the STA, and managing 
the program \10\ generate costs for TSA and for the enrollment 
providers who TSA has selected to help facilitate enrollment into the 
program. In the December 2013 Notice, TSA established a fee structure 
with a total fee of $85.\11\ That total fee was comprised of a TSA Fee 
of $70.50 and an Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Fee of $14.50. 
The TSA Fee included costs incurred by TSA as well as costs incurred by 
the enrollment provider. The FBI Fee was the cost set to conduct a

    In July 2021, TSA published a notice announcing the anticipated 
launch of additional enrollment providers who will be able to establish 
additional price points for the TSA PreCheck[supreg] Application 
Program.\12\ TSA expects additional enrollment options through these 
providers to become available in 2021 to increase opportunities to 
apply for membership in the program. The new fee structure reflects 
this change in the program and will now consist of a TSA Component and 
Enrollment Provider Component that together, will be the Total Fee. The 
Enrollment Provider Component will take into account the cost of the 
criminal history records check conducted by the FBI. TSA will continue 
to publish the total fee amounts for all enrollment options via the 
agency's website at www.tsa.gov/precheck.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

II. Discussion of TSA Fee Change

    TSA will impose the TSA Component of the fee for all individuals 
who apply for and renew membership. The TSA Component of the fee will 
be collected by the enrollment providers and remitted to TSA to cover 
the TSA costs to operate this successful traveler program for 
approximately 10 million travelers. Consistent with the statutory 
mandate,\13\ the TSA Component of the fee recovers TSA's costs to 
analyze the immigration, terrorism, criminal, and regulatory violation 
information generated in the checks of the various databases; determine 
whether applicants have a disqualifying factor or are eligible for the 
TSA PreCheck[supreg] Application Program; notify applicants of TSA's 
determination; issue KTNs to eligible individuals; conduct research and 
development for innovative enhancements to improve the TSA 
PreCheck[supreg] Application Program enrollment and the TSA 
PreCheck[supreg] expedited screening experience; and continue to 
monitor databases and information to confirm that the members remain 
low risk.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See infra n. 9.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The STA conducted by TSA will cover a term of five years from the 
date of approval and must be renewed with TSA at the end of that term 
if an individual wishes to maintain their TSA PreCheck[supreg] 
eligibility. Enrollment providers will be permitted to offer shorter 
duration memberships (e.g., one-year memberships) but must still remit 
the full TSA Component fee at initial enrollment to TSA to cover TSA's 
five-year costs. If a member allows the membership to lapse for any 
period of time and subsequently applies for renewal, the enrollment 
provider must remit the full TSA Component fee again.
    TSA has determined that the TSA Component must be $42.75 in order 
to cover TSA-costs associated with STAs and operating the TSA 
PreCheck[supreg] Application Program. While TSA was able to achieve a 
small reduction in operating costs during the global pandemic 
(approximately $20 million), TSA experienced a significant reduction in 
revenue as a direct result of the measurable decline in air travel, 
program enrollments, and program renewals. TSA estimates that from 
April 2020 through March 2021 TSA experienced a $65 million reduction 
in anticipated revenue. While TSA PreCheck[supreg] enrollment recovered 
significantly as of the summer of 2021, TSA must account for lost 
revenue and unknown future enrollment volumes given unknown long term 
travel recovery. By separating the TSA Component and the Enrollment 
Provider Component, TSA can ensure that future revenue covers TSA's 
costs while promoting pricing transparency as new enrollment providers 
compete for applicants. See Table 1 for a summary of the changes to the 
fee components.

Total Fee = $85.00........................  UES Fee = $85.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    While the new enrollment providers will offer varying price points, 
TSA and its current enrollment provider will maintain the $85.00 price 
currently set for new enrollments and in-person renewals. TSA offers an 
option for online renewal of TSA PreCheck Application[supreg] Program 
membership and over 95% of individuals choose the online renewal 
option. With this notice, TSA is announcing that the fee for online 
renewal will be $70.00 for enrollments through the Universal Enrollment 
Services enrollment provider. Future changes to this enrollment product 
and fees will be published on the TSA website at www.tsa.gov/precheck.
    TSA estimates that the new TSA Component fee, will result in 
collections of an additional $44 million between Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 
and FY 2025. This increased revenue will ensure that the TSA PreCheck 
Application[supreg] Program will remain solvent in future years. The 
increased revenue will also allow TSA to invest in improvements to the 
TSA PreCheck[supreg] airport experience. TSA will continue to monitor 
its costs and enrollments to ensure the program remains viable and the 
revenue aligns with cost.
    The cost estimates used to determine the fee have been developed in 
accordance with the applicable statutory language, section 540 of the 
DHS Appropriations Act, 2006, and Office of Management and Budget 
Circular A-25. Further cost information is provided in the TSA PreCheck 
Application Program Fee Development Report at www.tsa.gov/precheck.
    TSA will continue to publish the most up to date fee and product 
information for all enrollment options at www.tsa.gov/precheck.
