DHS Moves Transport Worker ID Deadline Back to April 2009

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has moved the final compliance date for the Transportation Worker Identification Credential program to April 15, 2009, from the Sept. 25, 2008 compliance date set in the final rule. This seven-month extension resulted from collaboration with port officials and industry, the agency said May 2.

TWIC is an identification program for all Coast Guard-credentialed mariners and personnel requiring unescorted access to secure areas within ports.  The program is on track to complete enrollment for a substantial number of jurisdictions by the end of 2008, with more than 250,000 workers already enrolled. Some ports in the Northeast must comply this year. The Coast Guard will provide at least 90 days' notice prior to enforcement. Enrollment began at the Port of Wilmington, Delaware, in October 2007.

Workers can pre-enroll online at www.tsa.gov/twic.
