Title 49 published on 09-May-2017 04:41
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 49 CFR Part 1572 after this date.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is removing specific fee amounts from regulations regarding security threat assessments (STAs) and credentialing for Hazardous Materials Endorsements (HMEs) and Transportation Worker Identification Credentials (TWICs). These provisions include State collection of the HME fee, TSA collection of the HME fee, and collection of the TWIC fee. Removing specific fee references will enable TSA to have the necessary flexibility to lower or increase fees as necessary to meet the statutory obligation to recover its costs. Current fee amounts as identified in these sections will remain unchanged until any future revisions to fee schedules are published in the Federal Register .
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is granting a temporary exemption from certain TWIC regulations regarding card expiration and replacement requirements. This exemption applies to U.S. nationals 1 who hold a valid TWIC expiring on or before December 31, 2014. The exemption permits eligible TWIC holders to obtain a replacement card that extends the expiration date of their current security threat assessment and TWIC by three years. During 2012, DHS intends to publish a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to seek comment on card reader requirements and deployment requirement plans. At the end of the three-year extension period, pending the outcome of this rulemaking activity, DHS expects card reader requirements to be in place and readers to be deployed at facilities with the highest risk. 1 The term U.S. nationals includes U.S. citizens and noncitizen nationals of the United States.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has a statutory obligation to recover its costs for conducting security threat assessments (STAs) and credentialing for Hazardous Materials Endorsements (HMEs) and Transportation Worker Identification Credentials (TWICs). These fees reimburse TSA for the costs of administering the programs. The proposed rule advises that future revisions to fee schedules will be published in the Federal Register . After public comments, TSA proposes to publish a final rule that removes specific fee amounts from 49 CFR 1572.403 (state collection of HME fee), 1572.405 (TSA collection of HME fee), and 1572.501 (collection of TWIC fee) to enable TSA to have necessary flexibility to lower or increase fees as necessary to meet the statutory obligation to recover its costs.
This rule is a technical change to correct a regulatory reference to TSA's postal zip code. This rule revises existing regulations to reflect organizational changes and it has no substantive effect on the public.
