"This rulemaking transfers the FAA's [Federal Aviation Administration] rules governing civil aviation security to TSA [Transportation Security Administration]. This rulemaking also amends those rules to enhance security as required by recent legislation. This rulemaking also requires additional qualifications, training, and testing of individuals who screen persons and property that are carried in passenger aircraft. It is intended to improve the quality of screening conducted by aircraft operators and foreign air carriers. This rule is being adopted to improve the qualifications of individuals performing screening, and thereby to improve the level of security in air transportation. This will help ensure a smooth transition of aviation security from the FAA to TSA, and will avoid disruptions in air transportation due to any shortage of qualified screeners."
