Annual TSA Enforcement Action Summary Released

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on Monday published a notice in the Federal Register that they are making available, in accordance with 49 USC 114(v), a summary of enforcement actions it has taken in 2009 (through December 15th). According to the notice, these enforcement actions were “for violations of any surface transportation requirements under 49 U.S.C. and for any violations of chapter 701 of title 46 of the U.S. Code.” A complete summary of enforcement actions for all of 2009 will be made available in January.

The enforcement actions summary lists seven cases total, two of which relate to railcar chain of custody measures (49 CFR 1580.107(e)) and five of which relate to the Transportation Worker Identification Credential program (49 CFR 1570). TSA imposed no fine in any of the seven cases, issuing instead warnings. The provisions of 49 U.S.C. 114(v) would have permitted TSA to levy a civil penalty of up to $10,000 in each of the cases listed.
