DHS Seeks Comments on the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) Program

 

The Transportation Worker Identification Credential Accountability Act of 2018, passed August 2, 2018, restricts the U.S. Coast Guard from implementing the TWIC Reader Rule until the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) submits a study to Congress that assesses the security and risk mitigation value of the underlying TWIC program.
 

As part of this study, DHS has issued a 60-Day Notice of Information Collection and is seeking public comments on the risk-mitigation value of TWIC at maritime facilities until April 8, 2019.
