KCM Update – News!
Since the posting on TSA website of an August 28 date for crew members to be uniformed for KCM access, APFA government affairs has voiced opposition along with other concerned parties. Following reports of inconsistent procedures at various airports, it is now confirmed that TSA will not require uniforms for KCM access this Wednesday, August 28, as was earlier reported.

Notice to Known Crewmembers
Please be advised that TSA is delaying implementation of the uniform requirement at KCM access points. The procedure to require a uniform for access through KCM will not go into effect this Wednesday, August 28, 2019, as previously announced.
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.
