    1. 1. TSA in the USA: Cargo Screening Regulations in the US Scott Pfeifer Masterpiece International Ltd. November 8, 2010
    2. 2. <ul><li>The Implementation Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of </li></ul><ul><li>2007 were signed into law on August 3, 2007 </li></ul><ul><li>The law requires 100% of all cargo on passenger aircraft be screened </li></ul><ul><li>by August, 2010 and requires the Transportation and Security </li></ul><ul><li>Administration (TSA) to: </li></ul><ul><li>Establish a system to screen 100% of cargo transported on passenger aircraft </li></ul><ul><li>Provide a level of security commensurate with that of passenger baggage </li></ul><ul><li>Ultimate responsibility for inspecting cargo falls on the airlines, who do </li></ul><ul><li>not have the capacity to screen all freight that is tendered </li></ul>
    3. 3. Certified Cargo Screening Program Overview <ul><li>TSA developed CCSP by working with U.S. and international agencies to incorporate aspects of commensurate security programs </li></ul><ul><li>- Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) </li></ul><ul><li>- UK ’ s Known Consignor Program </li></ul><ul><li>Participation in CCSP is voluntary, but once in, CCSF ’ s must: </li></ul><ul><li>- Adhere to increased TSA-directed security standards </li></ul><ul><li>- Employ chain of custody </li></ul><ul><li>- Be subject to TSA inspections </li></ul><ul><li>TSA creates Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) to: </li></ul><ul><li>- Allow screening of cargo early in the air cargo supply chain by a trusted, vetted </li></ul><ul><li>and audited facility </li></ul><ul><li>- Establish integrity of shipment through enhanced physical and personnel </li></ul><ul><li>security standards at Certified Screening Facilities (CCSF ’ s) </li></ul><ul><li>- Maintain integrity of shipment through supply chain by utilizing stringent </li></ul><ul><li>chain of custody methods </li></ul>
    4. 4. Who can become a Certified Screening Facility? <ul><li>The CCSP is a facility based program; off-site screening is not allowed </li></ul><ul><li>Facilities currently applying to become CCSFs: </li></ul><ul><li>Any entity with the desire to screen cargo must have a facility that can become secured. Not an issue with U.S. museums. </li></ul><ul><li>About 60 U.S. Museums already CCSF ’ s, as are many fine art warehouses, and more applications are in the pipeline </li></ul>
    5. 5. Chain of Custody TSA Approved Screening Methods Primary Screening Technology Physical - AT X-RAY - Physical Search - Explosives Trace Detection (ETD) - Other TSA Approved - Explosives Detection System (EDS) methods - Other detection equipment approved by TSA in the future Secondary Screening - TSA Approved Canines
    6. 6. Physical Inspection for Screening <ul><li>Physical screening no different than packing a crate </li></ul><ul><li>Lenders to US museums will see no difference in de-installation, packing or shipping process other than signage, TET and additional paperwork </li></ul><ul><li>Non-US Citizens can be involved in packing procedures but must supervised by a qualified screener </li></ul><ul><li>Portable screening not allowed! Cannot screen off site and leave or return to another CCSF </li></ul><ul><li>Chain of custody must then be kept intact from time of screening to airport delivery </li></ul>
    7. 7. Options <ul><li>Why would a U.S. Museum not become a CCSF? </li></ul><ul><li>Low volume of airport export cargo for passenger aircraft </li></ul><ul><li>Other options for screening nearby that museum is comfortable with: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Fine art Warehouse </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Another local museum </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Independent CCSF </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Government regulation </li></ul><ul><li>Recurrent training, background checks and paperwork onerous </li></ul><ul><li>Staffing concerns (i.e. subcontracted security guards, downsizing) </li></ul><ul><li>. Screening at cargo is innocuous </li></ul><ul><li>Options for shipping unscreened freight: </li></ul><ul><li>Deliver crates to local fine art warehouse that is a CCSF </li></ul><ul><li>Use freighter/all cargo aircraft; currently no screening regulation </li></ul><ul><li>Deliver freight unscreened to airlines </li></ul>
    8. 8. Potential Issues with tendering unscreened freight
    9. 9. US Government Indemnity and CCSP <ul><li>Great if applicant is already a CCSF, since USGI is most interested in risk management, but not required at this point </li></ul><ul><li>Decision must be made individually by each institution </li></ul><ul><li>Can check guidelines at: http://www.nea.gov/grants/apply/Indemnity/indemnityInternational.html </li></ul><ul><li>If USGI applicant is not a CCSF, any options for pre-screening facilities must have the same climate control/security conditions that USGI requires, i.e. 24-hour guards. </li></ul><ul><li>If not a CCSF and submitting an application, be sensible and check all possible alternatives for pre-screening freight, i.e. local warehouses, museums </li></ul><ul><li>Make sure options are approved by USGI </li></ul><ul><li>USGI does not require that applicants be CCSFs </li></ul>
    10. 10. Current Status at U.S. Airports <ul><li>Airlines are screening at 100% and no major issues to speak of </li></ul><ul><li>Airlines accepting only pre-screened freight from CCSF ’ s with proper documentation and chain of custody proof intact </li></ul><ul><li>Airlines beginning to charge for fees for screening non pre-screened cargo; </li></ul><ul><li>normally $0.05 - $0.10/kg </li></ul><ul><li>Potential for backlogs at airlines for un- </li></ul><ul><li>screened freight have not materialized </li></ul><ul><li>as many had predicted. Total volume of </li></ul><ul><li>freight is down from several years ago, but volumensre are once again are once again is rising. </li></ul>
