TSA Highway Corporate Security Review ICR

Today the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) published a 30-day information collection request (ICR) renewal notice in the Federal Register (76 FR 39887-39888) to allow them to continue to collect information from owners and operators of school bus, motor coach, and general freight trucking companies about their corporate security measures. The information is collected during TSA visits to these organizations through voluntary responses to questions asked by a TSA inspector.

TSA expects to continue to make about 100 such visits annually with each visit lasting about 3 hours. According to the ICR TSA uses the collected information “to establish the current state of security practices for highway modes of transportation” (76 FR 39888). That in turn allows TSA to make policy and program decisions to improve the overall security posture within the surface transportation community.

Public comments on the ICR are being solicited by TSA. Comments may be emailed ( to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) at the OMB. Comments should be submitted by August 8, 2011.
