Planning Guidelines and Design Standards
As a result of successful collaboration with the aviation industry, the TSA is proud to announce the issuance of the revised Planning Guidelines and Design Standards (PGDS) for Checked Baggage Inspection Systems Version 7.0.
The TSA prepared PGDS Version 1.0 as part of the Baggage Screening Investment Study (BSIS), in consultation with the aviation industry during 2006, and published it in October 2007. Since then, the TSA has completed several rounds of review processes in which industry comments and follow-on PGDS studies were incorporated and published in subsequent Versions 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, and 4.1, 4.2, 5.0 and 6.0.
Key changes in Version 7.0 include Checked Baggage average length analysis study, average Individual Carrier System (ICS) Carrier length requirement, In-line CBIS EDS throughput clarifications, oversize BIS rounding, and new CCR form
TSA welcomes comments to the PGDS Version 7.0 from industry stakeholders and will continue to coordinate with the aviation industry to periodically update the PGDS.
Comments and suggestions should be sent to [email protected] using the V7 PGDS Comment Form by 10/7/2021.
