SUBJECT: TURKEY: TSA MOVES FORWARD ON PROVIDING SECURITY TRAINING
FOR DGCA


This message is Sensitive-But-Unclassified. Please protect
accordingly.

1. (SBU) During a January 22 meeting, Embassy Athens Transportation
Security Administration (TSA) Representative Daniel Furlong and
Turkish Directorate General for Civil Aviation (DGCA) Deputy
Director General for Security Haydar Yalcin discussed various
training programs previously requested by the DGCA from TSA. Yalcin
said that the 2006 ICAO Universal Security Audit Program (USAP)
initial assessment and the 2007 ICAO USAP follow-up visit identified
the development of a screener certification standard as an open item
requiring corrective action. Yalcin's office must develop an Action
Plan to respond to the ICAO report and would like to include a
statement that TSA is providing assistance in this area. To help
develop Turkey's screener certification standard, Yalcin asked if it
would be possible for DGCA to review TSA's screener certification
standard. Furlong explained that this document could only be
released with the permission of TSA Administrator Kip Hawley.

2. (SBU) The DGCA also requested assistance from TSA on the
following subjects:
-- Crisis Management Program Development
-- Passenger Screening Technologies Data (Millimeter Wave)
-- Passenger Screening Protocol (TSA SOP)
-- Hold Baggage Screening Protocol (TSA SOP)
-- Passenger Screening Checkpoint Equipment Daily Operational Test
Calibration Standard and Methodology
-- Screener Certification Standard and Methodology

3. (SBU) At Yalcin's request, we are submitting DGCA's request to
review TSA's screener certification standard to TSA headquarters for
consideration.
