Passenger Screening Using Advanced 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) issued 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. The final rule makes clear that TSA no longer uses images of actual passengers and now uses a generic image through the use of ATR technology installed on all AIT machines. The rule emphasizes that AIT is the best available technology to detect both metallic and non-metallic objects and safeguards agency flexibility to respond to evolving threats.
