Air Cargo Alert: 100% Screening Requirement

Beginning August 1

Effective August 1, 2010, all domestic and export cargoes shipped on passenger flights originating in the United States must be screened at the piece level - the individual item within a shipment - before it can be loaded on the aircraft.  TSA has created the voluntary Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) which allows air supply chains to screen their own cargoes to avoid shipping delays.  For more information on this requirement and CCSP, please see TSA’s CCSP page, or call the Trade Information Center at 1-800-USA-TRAD(E) or ITA/Services at 202-482-5086.
