  1. Screening Fine Art TSA Certified Cargo Screening Program

  2. Agenda

  3. The Path to 100% Screening in the United States The legislation mandates 100% screening by August 2010 and requires TSA to: Establish a system to screen 100% of cargo for IEDs transported on passenger aircraft Provide a level of security commensurateto that of passenger baggage Meet inspection benchmarks Background • The Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 became U.S. law on August 3, 2007. • 50% screening was achieved in February 2009. Congressionally Mandated Cargo Screening Benchmarks 50% 9/11 Act 100% August 2010 August 2007 February 2009

  4. TSA’s Approach to 100% Screening TSA is pursuing the following initiatives to aid industry in achieving the 100% screening requirements and milestones: Narrow Body Screening Amendment Phased Rollout of the Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) Shippers in 9 cities Freight Forwarders (IACs) in 18 cities IAC Screening Technology Pilot (STP) participants Non-Pilot applicants

  5. 100% Narrow Body Amendment TSA issued an amendment to the air carrier screening programs requiring 100% screening of cargo transported on all narrow bodied passenger aircraft: Effective on October 1, 2008. Requirement applies to originating cargo tendered on narrow body passenger aircraft. i.e., B-737, B-757, A-320 (and smaller) Shrink-wrapped and banded exemptions were removed under the amendment. Narrow Body Wide Body • 96% of passenger flights are narrow body. • More than 80% of the passengers and 25% of cargo are carried on these flights.

  7. Program Timeline • August 2007: • 9/11 Mandate is effective • October 2008: • 100% Narrow Body Screening is effective • Outreach conferences held in Los Angeles and San Francisco • November 2008: • Outreach conferences held in Dallas/Fort Worth, New York, Chicago, and Miami • December 2008: • Released airline acceptance programs • Released IAC – 001, 002 Amendments (CCSP Program) • Released Shipper Order • February 2009: • 50% Screening Requirement is effective • August 2010: • 100% Screening Requirement is effective • Future: • 100% Screening Requirement is effective • Development of CCSP SSP (once IFR is finalized) WARNING:  This record contains Sensitive Security Information that is controlled under 49 C.F.R.

  8. Industry Issues Many industries face specific issues regarding the sensitivity of their cargo: • Chemicals: Various chemical compounds set off alarms that require a physical search, which may damage goods. • Perishables: Any delay in screening may damage or spoil goods. Goods may also require refrigeration. • Human Remains: Delays in screening endanger the integrity of the material; additionally, human remains have very limited means of screening. • Medications: Many medications must be kept refrigerated, handled with extreme care, and delivered on a strict timeline. • Museums & Galleries: Fine are is both fragile, priceless, and unique, requiring very specific screening processes and procedures.

  9. Museum Issues and Solutions Through outreach, we have learned there are specific and unique screening challenges facing the art industry. • Screening Exemptions: • All cargo transported on PAX must follow Federal Law and Congressional mandates. Fine art is not exempt, and TSA is recommending participation in the CCSP to minimized damage risk. • Priceless Art Inspection Concerns • TSA is aware of industry concerns that fine art could be opened and physically inspected by someone outside of the fine art community who may not understand proper care. • Currently, museums have several options. In addition to In-Airport screening, several fine art handlers and packers have been certified to conduct screening.

  10. Museum Issues and Solutions, Con’t. • Designated Screening Area • Many museums and galleries face space limitations. Because a Designated Screening Area (DSA) must be specified, museums and galleries face new spatial challenges. • A DSA may be a minimal size, but also may be expanded or even relocated within the certified facility. Procedures to do so will be outlined in the individual certification. • Portable Screening • Many galleries ship on behalf of collectors or others. Can a “certified” gallery perform the screenings off-site? • Portable screening is not allowed. All screening must be located in a DSA within the certified facility.

  11. Museum Issues and Solutions, Con’t. • Non-US Citizen Packing and Screening • Non-US citizens can be involved in the packing procedures but must be directly supervised by a qualified screener. • Benefits of Joining the CCSP Program • 50% seems to be going well and our partners have told us that our freight will be fine-why join the program? • Once the requirement becomes 100%, freight may or may not be screened concurrently. Physical inspection may be used to achieve 100% if the cargo triggers an alarm when screened by technology.

  12. CCSP Participants Specializing in Artwork • As of February 25th, over 60 facilities have submitted an application to become certified cargo screening facilities. • Participation includes museums, galleries, and collections such as The National Gallery of Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Museum of Modern Art.

  13. Looking Ahead • TSA has certified 300+ entities. • Over 3,000 Participants attended outreach sessions • 700+ applications received (IAC/ICSF/ shipper), ~120 per month. • TSA is currently assessing all applicants and is considering an expansion to the program where airlines would be able to accept screened cargo from all domestic airports. • All screening exemptions for “goods rendered unusable” will expire on Sept 1st. • TSA will begin to deploy TSA-Approved Validation Firms to perform assessments on CCSF-applicants. TSA Headquarters will continue to issue final certifications to qualified facilities. • TSA will deploy an online management system for application and certification processes under CCSP. • The Administration’s freeze on all pending regulations will not likely impact the CCSP program or the IFR.
