This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

On August 18, 2011, TSA published the Air Cargo Screening final rule in a separate Part III of the Federal Register (76 FR 51848). The rule amended two provisions of the Air Cargo Screening IFR issued on September 16, 2009 (74 FR 47672), proposed a new fee range for security threat assessments, and responded to public comments on the IFR. The final rule contained the language “on airport” in §§ 1544.205(g)(3) and 1546.205(g)(3), Acceptance and Screening of cargo. This language may be interpreted to not allow an aircraft operator or a foreign air carrier to screen cargo off airport, thus requiring them to become a Certified Cargo Screening Facility (CCSF) to screen cargo off airport for transport on passenger aircraft. This document corrects the final regulations by removing the language “on airport,” clarifying that an aircraft operator or foreign air carrier does not have to become a CCSF to screen cargo off airport for transport on a passenger aircraft. The final rule also contained an incorrect citation in the last paragraph of the preamble section “II. Summary of the Final Rule” that read “156.105(c)” and should have read “1546.105(c)”. This document corrects the incorrect citation in the preamble.
1. On page 51850, in the first column, third line from the bottom, in the last paragraph preamble discussion of “II. Summary of the Final Rule,” remove the citation “156.105(c)” and add in its place, the citation “1546.105(c)”.
2. On page 51867, in the third column, paragraph (g)(3) under § 1544.205 Acceptance and screening of cargo, is corrected to read as follows:
(g) * * *
(3) Limitation on who may conduct screening. Screening must be conducted by the aircraft operator, by another aircraft operator or foreign air carrier operating under a security program under this chapter with a comparable cargo security program, by a certified cargo screening facility in accordance with 49 CFR part 1549, or by TSA.
3. On page 51868, in the first column, paragraph (g)(3) under § 1546.205 Acceptance and screening of cargo, is corrected to read as follows:
(g) * * *
(3) Limitation on who may conduct screening. Screening must be conducted by the foreign air carrier, by another aircraft operator or foreign air carrier operating under a security program under this chapter with a comparable cargo security program, by a certified cargo screening facility in accordance with 49 CFR part 1549, or by TSA.
