Passenger Screening Using Advanced Imaging Technology
Document Number: 2013-07023
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-03-26
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is proposing to revise its civil aviation security regulations to clarify that TSA may use advanced imaging technology (AIT) to screen individuals at security screening checkpoints. This proposed rule is issued to comply with a decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, which ordered TSA to engage in notice-and-comment rulemaking on the use of AIT for screening. The Court decided that TSA should provide notice and invite comments on the use of AIT technology for primary screening.
