The certified entities Day Until 100% include 501 IACs, 354 Shippers, and 80 ICSFs. Mandate All passenger airlines operating in the U.S. have been notified of all CCSFs certified as of today. All 935 entities are able to tender screened cargo on August 1st. CCSP is at 100% – Another CCSF Milestone The Certified Cargo Screening Program has reached several milestones over the past three years since the 9/11 Act was signed into law. The mandate goes into effect this Sunday, August 1st. As of today the program has certified over 900 facilities in the U.S. supply chain. Congratulations to all who have successfully joined the program. We’d like to thank everyone for their participation and working with TSA to support this important issue. We look forward to working with all existing certified entities and current applicants in the post-August 1st environment. CCSP will continue to assist the supply chain, providing information and certification of entities into the program. If you have questions or concerns regarding the program please contact your primary regional Principal Cargo Security Analyst (PCSA) (please refer to the CCSP Responsibility Chart and Map on pages 5 and 6 of this newsletter) or email CCSP@dhs.gov. 100 % 75 % August  50 % May  2010 9/11  2010 Act February  2009 August  2007 The information contained in this newsletter is Non-Sensitive Security Information (Non-SSI) Volume II: Issue 16 http://www.tsa.gov/ccsp Page 1

  • 3. Certified Cargo Screening Program Participant Newsletter July 30, 2010 http://www.tsa.gov/ccsp CCSF Cargo Reporting Requirements Update – Shippers/ICSFs Only On July 1st, you received login credentials to the Cargo Reporting Tool (CRT). However, we see that more than 50% of users have not yet logged in or tried to use CRT. TSA highly recommends that you sign into CRT as soon as possible to ensure that you can access the tool. As a reminder, certified Shippers and ICSFs are required to submit cargo data for the month of July 2010 into CRT by Tuesday, August 10, 2010 to remain in compliance with the Order. Thus, Shippers and ICSFs have approximately two weeks to submit July cargo data to CRT before being found non- compliant. In order to log into CRT, please refer to the email sent to you from CargoReporting@dhs.gov on July 1st with unique CRT login information. Using the information contained in the email, complete the following steps to log into CRT: 1. Read the instructions outlined in the CRT User Guide (CCSP Web Board) 2. Navigate to the CRT website: https://fas.tsa.dhs.gov 3. Enter your user name and password (from the July 1, 2010 email) 4. Once logged into the site, please enter your data per instructions in the User Guide As either a Corporate Principal Security Coordinator (CPSC), or a Facility Security Coordinator (FSC), you received login credentials as a default. If your organization requires another user, please notify CargoReporting@dhs.gov. If you have questions, please refer to the Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) Web Board where TSA has posted the following materials to help you successfully navigate CRT: 1. CRT Training Webinar (June 30, 2010) 2. CRT Post Launch Webinar (July 7, 2010) 3. CRT One-Page Reference Document 4. User Guide Instructions 5. Guidance for Reporting Cargo Statistics Alternatively, if you still have questions or issues in using CRT to submit your July 2010 cargo data, please contact the CRT Helpdesk at (866) 906-0891 or fas@dhs.gov.

  • 4. Certified Cargo Screening Program Participant Newsletter July 30, 2010 http://www.tsa.gov/ccsp STA Tool Users • Log-In Name Waiting Period: The turnaround time it takes for the Facility Security Coordinator to receive their Log-In Name and Password is about 7 days after they submitted their own STA. The vetting process is typically 2-3 days and the request time is about 3-4 days. With improved efficiencies this processing wait time has decreased from 14 days to half the time originally needed. • All users should be aware that the CCSP STA support team (ACDMS) is responsible for emailing these Log-In Names and Passwords. Please be aware that some email settings may have made ACDMS's emails blocked or spammed due to their unknown name. Please ensure your company email settings will allow email from Acdmssupport@dhs.gov. For any inquiries or issues regarding this, please contact the CCSP inbox. • Facility Security Coordinators (FSCs): The FSC is the individual in charge of the STA process for their particular facility. Once receiving the STA Authorization Key, it is the FSC’s responsibility to submit their own STA only. Once submitted, approved, and passed, our STA support team, ACDMS, will email a user name and password to the FSC. This user name is created solely for the FSC. The user name and password is used to access, manage, and submit STAs for the other employees of the facility. • Please refer to Attachment C document that was sent when you received the Authorization Key for the STA Tool. This is a user guide to help assist with submissions and searching on the STA tool. A common issue that occurs is the approving and “Payment” of STAs. Submitting the STA does not process it into the system for review. The STA must be ‘Approved’, then ‘Add To Cart’, and finally ‘Payment’ for it to be entered in for review. For any other STA issues, please contact the STA Help Desk at 866-906-0891 or email at STAT@dhs.gov. Contact Us If you have any questions regarding the items included in this newsletter, please contact CCSP@dhs.gov or your primary regional Principal Cargo Security Analyst (PCSA).
