Termination & Deactivation Process

Company participation in the Airport Security ID Card program is contingent on having a continuous business requirement for access to Secured or Sterile Areas of the airport(s). It is the responsibility of airport employees and Issuing Officers to account for and safeguard Airport Security ID Cards. The individual(s) must follow the PA-required procedures to deactivate his or her access media if:

  • An employee has a permanent or temporary break in service
  • If the Airport Security ID Card is lost or stolen
  • If the Airport Security ID Card is no longer required

Terminating/Suspending Access

Employees who leave the company or are transferred off-site must return their Airport Security ID Card to their Issuing Officer within one (1) business day. The Issuing Officer is responsible for submitting an Security Identification Card Renewals, Replacements, Revisions & Cancellations Form.
