Passenger Screening Using Advance Imaging Technology

Docket Browser Return to Document
 
Docket ID: TSA-2013-0004
Agency: Transportation Security Administration (TSA)
Parent Agency: Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
Summary:

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) intends to issue a final rule to address whether screening and inspection of an individual, conducted to control access to the sterile area of an airport or to an aircraft, may include the use of advanced imaging technology (AIT). The notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) was published on March 26, 2013, to comply with the decision rendered by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) v. U.S. Department of Homeland Security on July 15, 2011. 653 F.3d 1 (D.C. Cir. 2011). The Court directed TSA to conduct notice and comment rulemaking on the use of AIT in the primary screening of passengers.

RIN: 1652-AA67
