ARSA Urges Expedited TSA Action
November 21, 2007
Finding itself in the ironic position of requesting immediate rulemaking on unnecessary and potentially burdensome requirements; ARSA sent a letter to Administrator Kip Hawley of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) calling for an expedient notice for proposed rulemaking on repair station security rules. TSA must publish a final rule by Aug. 3, 2008, or the FAA will be prohibited from issuing foreign repair station certificates (with limited exceptions). This mandate results from the enacting of the 9/11 Commission Recommendation Act (Public Law 110-53), which was signed into law in early August, 2007.
ARSA emphasized that agency inaction will punish the industry and create harmful consequences. The letter stated, in part, “The Association certainly recognizes that TSA is confronted with a myriad of more pressing issues with only limited resources…However, the severe penalty necessitates immediate action.”
