Background

The TSA Civil Enforcement Docket contains the official TSA civil enforcement case materials for those enforcement actions in which an alleged violator of the Transportation Security Regulations (TSR) has requested a hearing. The TSA Civil Enforcement Docket has been maintained at TSA Headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. See 68 FR 58281 (Oct. 9, 2003).

TSA is transferring the TSA Civil Enforcement Docket from its headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, to the USCG ALJ Docketing Center in Baltimore, Maryland, effective on the date of publication of this document. The purpose of this transfer is to consolidate the functions of the TSA Civil Enforcement Docket with other aspects of the TSA civil enforcement case management, which are currently administered by the USCG Office of Administrative Law Judges under a reimbursable agreement with TSA. Under this agreement, the USCG Office of Administrative Law Judges presides over all TSA civil enforcement actions in which an alleged violator of the TSR has requested a hearing. The transfer of the TSA Civil Enforcement Docket to the USCG ALJ Docketing Center ensures that official TSA civil enforcement case materials in which a hearing has been requested will be maintained by the USCG, which administers other aspects of the TSA civil enforcement case management.

Address Change

Presently, the unrevised TSA Civil Enforcement Docket address in Arlington, Virginia, which this document changes, is contained in the following sections of 49 CFR part 1503:

  • § 1503.5(b)(2)—Persons filing a formal complaint;
  • § 1503.5(k)—Locations where official TSA records relating to the disposition of formal complaints are maintained;
  • § 1503.5(k)(2)(C)(ii)—Location of formal complaint docket files or documents for persons with permission to review;
  • § 1503.16(f)—Persons requesting a hearing in a TSA case;
  • § 1503.209(b)—Persons filing an answer in a TSA case;
  • § 1503.210(a)—Persons tendering documents for filing in a TSA case;
  • § 1503.230(b)(2)(C)(ii)—Location of formal complaint docket files or documents for persons with permission to review; and
  • § 1503.233(a)—Persons filing a notice of appeal of an initial decision.

Effective August 22, 2006, persons who desire to submit documents to the TSA Civil Enforcement Docket should address submissions to the following address instead of the address provided in 49 CFR part 1503: ALJ Docketing Center, U.S. Coast Guard, 40 S. Gay Street, Room 412, Baltimore, Maryland 21202-4022, ATTN: Enforcement Docket Clerk.

TSA will change this address in part 1503 when a final rule is published making further administrative and technical changes to TSA's regulations in 49 CFR parts 1500-1699 and will provide this new address in enforcement documents it sends to respondents. The USCG ALJ Docketing Center also will notify respondents in TSA civil enforcement actions in which an alleged violator of the TSR has requested a hearing of this transfer and the new address. Prior to TSA's revisions to the relevant sections of 49 CFR part 1503, any materials sent to the address listed in 49 CFR part 1503 will be forwarded to the Coast Guard docket address listed above.
