The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) approved 12 organizations to assess third-party explosives detection canine teams to determine whether they meet TSA’s standards for screening air cargo, TSA announced on Tuesday.
    The agency said third-party canine-cargo (3PK9-C) certifiers now may begin certifying canine teams to TSA standards. All certifications must be conducted by an authorized evaluator employed by a TSA-approved 3PK9-C certifier, TSA said.
    Under the 3PK9-C Program, third-party canine teams trained in explosives detection can be certified by a nongovernmental entity, acting under TSA’s approval, as meeting the agency’s certification standards.
    Certified teams can be deployed to screen air cargo for aircraft operators, foreign air carriers and other TSA-related parties operating under a TSA-approved or accepted security program, TSA said.
    Eligibility requirements for canine explosives detection teams include, but aren’t limited to, experience, education, vetting and citizenship requirements for canine team handlers.
   “All teams should understand that successful completion of a 3PK9-C certification event is only one of the requirements for explosives detection canine teams under the [Certified Cargo Screening Programs] CCSP-K9 security program,” the TSA said. “Among other requirements, the CCSP-K9 security program requires canine explosives detection teams to pass a background check before an air carrier may hire them to screen cargo.”

A primary concern to the [U.S. Federal Maritime Commission] under the Shipping Act is whether ocean carrier bunker charge adjustment formulas are clear and definite.

While UP, CSX and KCS have already reported their Q1 2019 results, CP will report its results on April 23, followed by Norfolk Southern on April 24 and CN on April 29.
