Reposting of Redacted Audit: Security at Aircraft Repair Stations
Prior to the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA’s) transition into the Department of Homeland Security, as part of an audit in 2003 of air carriers’ use of aircraft repair stations, the Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General reviewed security controls at these stations. Our audit (originally released on February 28, 2003) disclosed security vulnerabilities at repair stations located at commercial and general–aviation airports and off airport property. We recommended that TSA conduct risk–based security assessments as a first step in determining the actions needed to address repair–station security.
This report has been redacted by TSA to protect security sensitive information.
