MEC Safety, Health and Security Committee

As an added layer of personal health and safety protection the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has issued the following temporary liquid disinfectant allowance for non-uniformed crewmembers traveling with personal use quantities of liquid disinfected products.

Effective April 30 through July 31, 2020, the following guidance will apply:

1. Non-uniformed crewmembers are required to present their company CREW ID badge.

2. Any commercially-produced disinfectant product may be subject to additional screening by TSA and may be prohibited from transport at the discretion of the Federal Security Director or his/her designee.

3. This exemption is limited to commercially-produced disinfectant products only and does not apply to other liquids, prohibited hazardous materials (unless otherwise authorized by a Special Permit from the Department of Transportation), or items on the TSA prohibited items list.

Questions can be directed to your Local Council Safety, Health and Security Committee.
