Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Transportation Security Administration (TSA), DHS.

ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

This document makes a correction to the final rule published in the Federal Register on May 26, 2006. That rule enhances and improves the security of air cargo transportation by requiring airport operators, aircraft operators, foreign air carriers, and indirect air carriers to implement security measures in the air cargo supply chain as directed under the Aviation and Transportation Security Act. The final rule also amends the applicability of the requirement for a “twelve-five” security program for aircraft with a maximum certificated takeoff weight of 12,500 pounds or more to those aircraft with a maximum certificated takeoff weight of more than 12,500 pounds to conform to recent legislation. TSA listed an incorrect compliance date in certain sections of parts 1544, 1546, and 1548 dealing with security threat assessments and a mandatory security program requirement for operators. This document adds the correct compliance date to these sections.

DATES:

Effective October 23, 2006.

Background

On May 26, 2006, TSA published a final rule in a separate Part II of the Federal Register (71 FR 30478), revising various regulations to enhance and improve the security of air cargo transportation. Although TSA listed the correct compliance dates in the DATES section of the final rule preamble, we incorrectly listed the compliance date dealing with security threat assessments in §§ 1544.228(d), 1546.213(d), 1548.5(a), and 1548.16(a), and a mandatory security program requirement in § 1548.15(d) for operators. This document corrects the date in these sections from the incorrect date of November 22, 2006, to the correct date of December 1, 2006.
