Maritime Transportation Security act (MTSA)

TWIC Escorting

Individuals holding a valid TWIC may act as “escorts” for individuals who do not have TWICs but who require access to secure areas of MTSA-regulated facilities and vessels. TWIC escorts must meet certain training requirements, including knowledge of the facility’s escorting procedures and the facility’s procedures/contingency plans in the event the escorted individual engages in unauthorized activities while within a secure area.
