Transportation Security Administration December 8, 2005 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Prohibited Items; Allowing Small Scissors and Small Tools
Document Number: 05-23817
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-12-08
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration
To enable transportation security officers to concentrate on more effectively confronting the threat of concealed explosives being taken into the cabin of an aircraft, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is removing certain low threat, high volume, and easily identified items from the prohibited items list. This document amends the TSA interpretive rule that provides guidance to the public on the types of items that TSA considers to be weapons, explosives, and incendiaries, and which are therefore prohibited in airport sterile areas, in the cabins of aircraft, or in passengers' checked baggage. This document removes small scissors and certain small tools from the prohibited items list and adds them to the permitted items list.
