Whatever job function you perform, it is important that you recognize your role and responsibility when it comes to security.
Please note: Ramp Agents and Customer Service Agents will learn more about their own specific security-related duties and responsibilities later on in separate training modules.
The TSA carries out its mission of strengthening the security of the nation’s transportation systems through the enactment of Federal Rules called Transportation Security Regulations (TSR’s).
As an airline employee working in the airport environment, you should become familiar with three of the TSR’s:
- 49 CFR 1544: Aircraft Operator or Airline Security
- 49 CFR 1520: Sensitive Security Information
- 49 CFR 1540: Individual Responsibilities
These regulations may be found in their entirety at the public website: http://www.access.gpo.gov
