ARSA’s Security Rule Engagement Continues

While Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) part 145-certificated entities have complied with the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) final repair station security rule for over three months, ARSA remains engaged as the agency’s implementation persists.

The industry continues to await TSA’s clarification on when the repair station is responsible for all large aircraft “on its ramp or property,” following ARSA’s inquiry on the topic. Additionally, the agency has promised to release a “question and answer” document clarifying the rule’s mandates. The association is urging the TSA to release these materials immediately to ensure the agency’s proper implementation and industry’s appropriate compliance.

View ARSA’s security rule implementation checklist.

A list of ARSA’s recorded webinars, including the TSA security rule session, is available here.
