TSA misses deadline to finalize repair station security rule

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has again failed to meet its deadline to finalize the repair station security rule. This means that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) still faces a moratorium on certificating foreign aviation repair stations.

During a March 14 oversight hearing before the House Transportation Security Subcommittee, TSA Administrator John Pistole confirmed that the rule was under a mandatory 90-day examination period by the Office of Management & Budget after work was completed by TSA and the Department of Homeland Security. In response, the Aeronautical Repair Station Association (ARSA) launched a countdown clock to ensure TSA is held accountable to the most recent deadline. ARSA is now working with Congress to resolve the issue.
