TSA says its plan for policing aircraft repair stations takes a risk-based approach that accounts for differences in size, location and other factors that relate to security. Cindy Farkus, assistant administrator for TSA's Office of Global Strategies, says she is working with stakeholders to formulate a rule that is "flexible, viable, and takes into consideration the efforts already put forth by repair stations to secure their environment from the threat of terrorism." In its notice of proposed rulemaking, the agency noted that a "'one size fits all' approach would not appropriately address the diversity in repair station characteristics."
