IAC Training, Inc., can assist you with navigating the Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) approval process.
Some background on the TSA's CCSF program. The TSA certifies cargo screening facilities located throughout the United States to screen cargo prior to providing it to airlines for transport on passenger flights. The Certified Cargo Screening Program (CCSP) is a practical supply chain solution, which provides security while ensuring the flow of commerce.

Any facility tendering cargo directly to an aircraft operator, foreign air carrier, or indirect air carrier may apply for the program. This includes:

Once registered, a CCSF-K9 may enter into agreements with TSA-regulated entities (e.g., aircraft operators, foreign air carriers, and CCSFs) to deploy Certified 3PK9-C teams to screen air cargo. The TSA-regulated entity must also have a TSA-approved or accepted amendment to its respective security program before it can use a CCSF-K9 to screen air cargo to TSA's requirements. CCSF's may use the 3PK9 to screen their cargo, once they are approved as a CCSF by the TSA. We can assist you with navigating this procedure.
