DHS/TSA/PIA-020 Airport Access for Aviation Workers

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) conducts security threat assessments on individuals working at airports. These include individuals seeking or holding authorized airport access or airport identification badges or credentials, as well as identification credentials or badges recognized by TSA under 49 CFR Parts 1542 and 1544, and non-traveling individuals requiring unescorted access to the sterile area of the airport. Additionally, Congress, through the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Act of 2018, directed TSA to establish a national centralized database containing the names of individuals who have had an airport and/or aircraft operator-issued credential or badge revoked for failure to comply with aviation security requirements. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) consolidates and supersedes earlier PIAs regarding aviation worker security threat assessments (STA) published in 2004, 2005, and 2008 and discusses the creation of the new national centralized database.
