Final TWIC regs released

Filed under: Port and Maritime Security — by Christian Beckner on January 4, 2007

Yesterday TSA released the final regulations for the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) program, following 7-8 months of consultation and negotiation with the impacted stakeholders. The complete final rule is available at this link. The New York Times summarizes the regs, and stories by the AP and Washington Technology notes the high fees associated with the mandatory program.

Now that the regs have been finalized, DHS is expected to begin enrolling people in TWIC in March of this year. And a great deal of work is still needed to develop and install TWIC card readers, an issue that was somewhat sidestepped during the rulemaking process.
