The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is announcing the opportunity for manufacturers, shippers, suppliers, warehouses, vendors, e-commerce fulfillment centers, and third-party logistics providers in the air cargo supply chain to become a Secured Packing Facility (SPF).

As a prerequisite to becoming an SPF, interested persons must first become an Indirect Air Carrier (IAC) regulated by TSA and agree to adopt the TSA's SPF Order. If these requirements are met, cargo appropriately transferred to a TSA-regulated all-cargo aircraft operator by an SPF would not need to be screened in order to meet international requirements that take effect on June 30, 2021. This notice is being published to ensure all interested persons are aware of the opportunity to become an SPF.
