WASHINGTON — Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA) today issued the following statement in response to the recommendations released this morning by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to mitigate potential insider activity.
“We appreciate DHS Secretary Johnson’s initiative to work collaboratively with ACI-NA and its member airports through the Aviation Security Advisory Committee (ASAC) to identify practical security enhancements to mitigate potential insider activity,” said ACI-NA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke. “In moving to implement the identified enhancements, ACI-NA and its U.S. member airports have long supported an approach to regulatory activities whereby agencies afford industry the opportunity to comment on proposed security measures and we look forward to this type of collaborative engagement with DHS and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).”
The Final Report of the ASAC Working Group on Airport Access Control and the details of the specific recommendations are available from the TSA here.
