The Transportation Security Administration has released a long-anticipated rule to improve security at aircraft repair stations in the United States and overseas.

First mandated by a 2003 FAA reauthorization, the rule requires that repair stations certified by the FAA let TSA officials enter the premises for routine inspections. Some repair stations must add security features to their facility, the rule says, and a station can appeal if TSA decides it is a security risk.

The General Aviation Manufacturers Association, which had been working on the rule for years, was relieved.

"By finally putting this rule into place, the U.S. government is ending a decade of bureaucratic inaction, establishing a risk-based security requirement for repair stations and making it easier for U.S. businesses to access and support markets throughout the world," GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce said.

The final rule will appear in the Federal Register Jan. 13.
