In conjunction with the issuance of 49 CFR part 1511 (ASIF regulations), TSA requested OMB approval to collect information necessary for TSA to establish the ASIF, including information about the carriers' individual and aggregate costs related to screening passengers and property in calendar year 2000. This information collection included submissions to TSA of data on the carriers' screening-related costs and also of independent audits of that data. This information collection is currently approved under OMB number 1652-0018.
