Standards for Airport Security Access Control Systems
|Publication Date:||17 June 2021|
The standards outlined herein establish application recommendations for components, processes, methods, designs, and engineering practices in the implementation of ISSA systems. In addition, the document contains significant additional material on potential extensions of such systems over and above the current regulatory requirements in line with industry practice, anticipated regulatory requirements and new technology. It contains explicit material on system migration issues. This document includes criteria deemed appropriate to standards intended to achieve the highest practical degree of commonality of interfaces between system or subsystem hardware and software modules and interchangeability of these modules across a wide range of products and manufacturers.
These performance standards do not replace technical specifications that must be developed by end users to tailor ISSA requirements to specific purposes such as system acquisition, installation, operation, training, and maintenance.
These standards provide the foundation upon which such ISSA technical specifications should be developed. The operational goals are the installation and/or implementation of an FAA- and TSA-approved ISSA that enables an airport operator to comply with the regulatory requirements, to minimize costs and operational impacts, to maximize utility for operational users, and to provide a sound foundation for the support of anticipated new requirements, technology, and standards.
