>Photocopy of TWIC Is Insufficient For MTSA Facility Access

>Sector Baltimore recently issued a Maritime Safety and Security Bulletin that discussed its findings that Transportation Worker Identify Credential (TWIC) holders have been making photocopies of their TWICs to prevent damage or loss and presenting the copy to gain entry into a facility regulated by the Maritime Transportation Security Act (MTSA). The MSSB stated that anyone presenting a paper copy of his or her TWIC will need to provide the actual TWIC or face denial of entry and/or potential charges.
