KCM Program Changes
Today we have been made aware of changes coming to the KCM Program as of next Wednesday, August 28th, 2019.
Changes will include a requirement for ALL crew members to be in a uniform to access and use the KCM Portals. Additionally, there will an increase in random crew member additional screening – even when processing through the KCM Portals. The changes coming are based on audits and data collected by the TSA directly related to various crew member violations. The changes apply to ALL airlines participating in the KCM Program, across the entire system.
Your compliance is required when using the voluntary processes in place when you choose to use the KCM Portals. Your non-compliance can lead up to suspension and even expulsion from the KCM Program.
The official notice is located below and posted on the KCM website. (knowncrewmember.org)
Notice to KCM Crewmembers:
Effective August 28, 2019, KCM-authorized Crewmembers will be required to wear uniforms while using KCM access points.
Effective August 27, 2019, KCM-authorized enhancement to Unpredictable Screening Procedures (USP) will be enabled. This enhancement will include retention of the Crewmember selection for USP for a period of time at all KCM access points in that airport. NOTE: If the selected Crewmember exits the sterile area and attempts to reenter through a KCM access point during this time period, they will continue to be identified for USP.
