TSA Issues TWIC Update

Tuesday, September 02, 2008

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) issued an update to its status report on the implementation of the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) program. The TWIC Dashboard shows that, as of August 28, 469,877 maritime workers have enrolled in for a TWIC and that 292,812 cards have been activated. Progress continues to be steady, but slow. Meeting the final deadline of April 15, 2009 will be difficult. Meeting the earlier enforcement dates in some Captain of the Port (COTP) zones is highly problematical unless the pace of enrollment improves dramatically.
