Description

The Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) was promulgated under the authority of the Transportation and Security Act of 2002 and made major changes to 33 CFR Chapter I Subchapter H, 46 CFR Chapter I Subchapter B, and 49 CFR Chapter XII Subchapter D. The TWIC will satisfy the requirement for a biometric credential as mandated by 46 U.S.C. 70105, which was enacted by the Maritime Security and Accountability for Every (SAFE) Port Act of 2006. The Coast Guard is in charge of implementation and enforcement of this program. Once compliance is announced possession of a TWIC is required for an individual to be eligible for unescorted access to secure areas of vessels and facilities. LTJG Hayes is the TWIC action officer for Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston. This is a rare opportunity to learn about this mammoth rule affecting OCS oil and gas workers, supply boat operators and service company employees.
