Notice of Meeting
Pursuant to standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), effective June 30, 2021, all international air- cargo transported on commercial aircraft must be screened by the aircraft operator or received from another regulated entity that has applied security controls that satisfy the international standards. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) intends to implement a new program that meets the ICAO standards for an alternative to screening and is announcing a closed meeting with representatives of e-commerce fulfillment centers, manufacturers, shippers, suppliers, warehouses, and third-party logistics providers who ship international air cargo to discuss this alternative framework. This meeting will be closed to the public. Participation is limited and all participants must be validated by TSA as a representative of one of the industries identified above and obtain clearance from TSA for access to Sensitive Security Information (SSI). In light of the COVID-19 public health crisis, the meeting will be virtual.
