THE federal Government Accountability Office (GAO) has told the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to improve its air cargo screening systems at foreign airports before freight is flown to the US.

The GOA discovered the TSA found security violations in 25 per cent of its foreign airport assessments and 16 per cent of airline inspections between 2012 and 2017, reports Washington, DC's Homeland Preparedness News .



The GOA report recommends the TSA administrator develop and monitor outcome-based performance measures for determining the effectiveness of the cargo portion of its foreign airport assessments and for determining the effectiveness of national cargo security recognition programmes (NCSP).



'Once TSA determines a programme is commensurate with TSA's, it monitors NCSP implementation through regular air carrier inspections, foreign airport assessments, and dialog with government officials,' the GAO said.



The GAO also recommends the administrator differentiate which air carriers correct violations related to cargo and which develop outcome-based performance measures for their air carrier inspection programme.
