Established by Congress through the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA) and administered by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Coast Guard, the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) is a vital security measure that will ensure individuals who pose a threat do not gain unescorted access to secure areas of the nation’s maritime transportation system.

Nationwide, more than 1 million workers with unescorted access to secure areas will apply for TWIC during the rest of 2008. Currently 52 ports are enrolling people through the program, which began on Oct. 16, 2007. Ultimately, established fixed enrollment centers will be in place at 147 ports along with mobile enrollment centers at dozens of other locations as needed.

  1. Victoria, Texas (Jan. 16, 2008)
