Strageties for airports to issue badge access and maintain TSR 1542 compliance

There is a need for a synthesis study to explore the different ways that airports approach airport badging while remaining in compliance with TSR 1542.

Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)

The Airport Security Coordinator (ASC) has a challenge to maintain a balance of risk and access to secured areas of the airport. No matter the size, ASCs are responsible for the security of all airport workers. The challenge is that many of those people don't work for the airport. How can airports provide a high level of customer service for their tenants, meet compliance regulations and ensure the safety and security of everyone? There are is a verity of methods to achieve this balance with use of temporary amendments to the airport security plan, different types (access areas) of badges issued, temporary badges, etc. What are current practices in use that help ASCs decide the most effective solution?

Objective (What is the desired product or result that will help the airport industry?)

The questions that this project should answer are:
• How does the ASC determine how many of any particular badge should be allocated to tenants?
• How does the ASC determine how many types (access areas) of badges the airport has available?
• How does the ASC maintain minimum levels of badge loss?
• How does the ASC recover costs associated with badge loss? It the reissuance cost distributed to all badge holders? Is the reissuance cost built in the initial fees?
