Public Meeting and Extension of Comment Period on Request for Information: Air Cargo Security Options To Mitigate Costs of Compliance With International Security Requirements
On April 10, 2020, TSA published a request for information (RFI) specifically requesting information from the air cargo industry (including manufacturers, shippers, suppliers, warehouses, e-commerce fulfillment centers, third-party logistics providers, and air carriers) relating to compliance with international security standards for the transport of air cargo by commercial aircraft operators (85 FR 20234). In advance of the closing date for comments submitted in response to the RFI, TSA will hold a public meeting on July 29, 2020, to answer questions regarding the international standards discussed in the RFI and to provide an additional forum for comments by stakeholders and other interested persons regarding the issues identified in the RFI. In light of the current COVID-19 public health crisis, the public meeting will be virtual. TSA is also extending the comment period for the RFI to provide an additional period for comments to be submitted after the public meeting.
