Aircraft Repair Station Security
Document Number: 2014-00415
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-01-13
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Transportation Security Administration
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is issuing regulations to improve the security of domestic and foreign aircraft repair stations as required by the Vision 100Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act. The regulations codify the scope of TSA's existing inspection authority and require repair stations certificated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) under 14 CFR part 145 to allow TSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials to enter, conduct inspections, and view and copy records as needed to carry out TSA's security-related statutory and regulatory responsibilities. The regulations also require these repair stations to comply with security directives when issued by TSA. The regulations also require certain repair stations to implement a limited number of security measures. The regulations establish procedures for TSA to notify repair stations of any deficiencies with their security measures and to determine whether a particular repair station presents an immediate risk to security. The regulations include a process whereby a repair station may seek review of a determination by TSA that the station has not adequately addressed security deficiencies or that the repair station poses an immediate risk to security.
