IME Supports Revisions to TWIC Application Form

07/12/2013

IME submitted comments to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in support of changes to the form that would allow the agency to authorize non-transportation workers to obtain TWICs.  This change is a step toward allowing greater use of the TWIC as an alternative to creating evermore vetting programs as new categories of workers are identified as needing a background check.  IME is prompting the TWIC as an alternative to the DHS proposed "personnel surety program" under CFATS.  Click here to to a copy of the comments.  Click here to view a TWIC disclosure form.
