Indirect Air Carrier Standard Security Program (IACSSP)
CFR Title 49: Transportation

The Transportation Security Administration (released the final version of the Indirect Air Carrier Standard Security Program (IACSSP) through their web-based Indirect Air Carrier Management System (IACMS) It is available to be viewed and downloaded, in addition to the comments which were received during the review period. All Indirect Air Carrier (IAC) members of the Airforwarders Association should download this immediately and read and evaluate it particularly as it pertains to the deadlines which are imposed by the TSA in their cover letter.
For non-members, here is a public viewable source INDIRECT AIR CARRIER SECURITY

  There are more than 4,000 registered IACs involved in the air cargo industry, most considered small to medium-size enterprises.

   TSA has mandates to require 100% of domestic forwarders to be compliant with this program for scanning of all cargo loaded on passenger planes

Shipper fined $1M for not screening cargo sent to Indy airport
3 employees face criminal charges after investigation
INDYSTAR.COM 6:57 AM, Feb. 9, 2012

Cargo shipper OHL Solutions has agreed to pay a $1 million civil fine and three employees are facing criminal charges after a federal investigation into failures to screen cargo loaded into passenger planes at Indianapolis International Airport.
The record fine for intentional violations of federal air security laws is the latest civil and criminal allegation involving key employees of the OHL operation on Fortune Circle in Indianapolis. The company was formerly known as ActivAir.
"When it comes to national security, there is no room for error, and we have no tolerance for shortcuts," U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett said Wednesday in announcing the fine and charges.
According to court records, three employees of OHL Solutions -- Andrew Barnes, 32; Brian Vanhandel, 31; and Mitchell Totty, 26, all of Indianapolis -- have agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to violate the 2010 federal law requiring record-keeping of cargo security screening.
They face sentences of up to five years in prison and fines of $250,000 each. Their attorneys did not return calls for comment.
Tennessee-based Ozburn-Hessey Logistics, a global cargo shipper, bought ActivAir in 2008. The companies were merged in April 2010, and the name of the Indianapolis company became OHL Solutions. It is separate from OHL's large distribution operations in Plainfield.
Ozburn-Hessey spokesman Phillip Corwin confirmed that the parent company will pay the fine.
He said employees involved in the incident were fired. The former ActivAir ceased air cargo operations a year ago after the security lapse was discovered.
The ActivAir site in Indianapolis had been certified by the Transportation Security Administration in 2009 as a cargo pre-screening center to check freight for explosives before it gets to Indianapolis International Airport.
Investigators declined to say what triggered a probe of ActivAir employees' faulty or false record-keeping at the center. But TSA officials said there are frequent audits.
Court records say the three men falsely claimed that all the cargo was screened before it was sent to be loaded into the belly holds of passenger planes. The breakdowns apparently continued through much of 2010, possibly longer.
Barnes and Vanhandel served stints as operations manager, and Totty was an employee of the ActivAir site during that time.
This is not the first time an ActivAir manager has faced criminal charges. Former general manager Kent C. Gauger is serving four years on home detention and was ordered to repay $141,150 to OHL after he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of theft in June in a Marion County court.
Gauger was the top-ranking executive at ActivAir when Ozburn-Hessey took over early in 2010.
Within months, Ozburn-Hessey filed a federal lawsuit accusing Gauger of creating bogus invoices to bilk OHL for work that wasn't done. The company also claims that after Gauger was fired, he kept a laptop with company secrets that he provided to a competitor.
Criminal charges also were filed against Gauger in Marion County, where prosecutors say Barnes was part of the phony invoice scheme, but he wasn't charged until federal investigators uncovered the lapses in security screening.



Air Cargo Security Issues:

During each day over 38 million major cargo shipments and 75 million courier shipments begin and end at our door steps.  We take in cargo as a matter of course and welcome the couriers and drivers as they deliver products to us.  Little consideration is given to much of this cargo as to where it has been, or who handled it, who shipped it or the fact of its relative safety or security, we just sign the form and take it in!
Cargo is neither safe nor secure in transit but rather at risk during much of the transit cycle. Air cargo, as compared to all conventional forms of transit, gets its greatest security boost from delivery speed, anonymity and parcel size relative to other packages in the same igloo.

 Air cargo rarely sits still.  Cargo at rest becomes cargo at risk.  Air cargo on the other hand gets far less scrutiny than we would like and it is therefore an area of concern for security professionals.

Tendered cargo at airside merely g
ot a cursory x-ray screening.  Little effort was put into interrogating the shipper, as the shipper is usually unknown and miles away.  Air cargo is unattended unlike baggage, which tends to get matched to owners at one end of the flight or the other.  

Without a pedigree nor opportunity for scrutiny we run tremendous risks in accepting general air shipments as well as courier packages.   Many parcels of a certain height and weight are opened for customs examination but then most are not properly reclosed or re-secured before boarding the aircraft.  In-bond facilities in many countries are less than secure and they are the perfect formula for disaster.

When you consider the US as being one of one thousand shippers, you can better understand the scope and magnitude of the problem globally.  Do we curtail shipments from non-participating countries?  Do we stop importing? Clearly the threat of terrorism via air cargo must become part of any shippers receiving policy and we must all be just a bit more careful in randomly receiving unannounced packages.

In the United States the FAA and the DHS/TSA have instituted the Certified Cargo Screening Program, where each such forwarder (Indirect Air Carriers - IACs) must self-certify any shipments which are destined for air transport.



"To participate directly in the TSA’s Certified Cargo Screening Program, forwarders -- legally referred to by federal aviation security regulators as Indirect Air Carriers (IACs) -- must invest in scanning equipment that’s substantially more robust than that used to scan passenger baggage."

   “Forwarders participating in CCSP must purchase technology for which the cost may range from $150,000 to $500,000 per facility -- a price tag that cannot be met by most small and medium-size forwarders,” said Brandon Fried, executive director of the Airforwarders Association, in testimony before the House Homeland Security Committee’s subcommittee on transportation security and infrastructure protection.

   “As a result, they will face delays at the airport for cargo screening, causing them to miss flights and lose revenues,” he added. “This lost revenue, in the current economic environment with high fuel surcharges and razor-thin profit margins, could force forwarders out of business.”
