U.S. Requires Air Cargo Screening by end of 2012
The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) mandates that all cargo on U.S.-bound passenger flights will need to be screened for explosives as of December 3, 2012. This initiative helps address a requirement of the "H.R. 1 Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007" signed by President George W. Bush in August 2007. Originally slated for implementation in December 2011, the cargo screening initiative was pushed back due to industry concerns regarding their ability to meet the initial deadline. The challenge is increasing the security of air cargo without restricting the movement of goods and commerce.
