Buffalo Marine Service fully implemented its Transportation Workers Identification Credential

“Buffalo Marine Service fully implemented its Transportation Workers Identification Credential (TWIC)  screening plan throughout its facility as the TWIC regulations came into effect at midnight on April 14, 2009.

President and CEO, Patrick Studdert commented that Buffalo Marine has aggressively ensured every employee possesses a TWIC and any and all vendors that enter the company’s  facility should have a TWIC if they want to avoid delays.

“The TWIC regulations are here to stay. Our mariners and shore side staff enrolled in the TWIC program as far back as November 2007. We are committed to complying with the marine transportation security regulations so that our waterfront is safer and our personnel understand the importance of port security.”

Effective April 15, 2009 all U.S. Coast Guard licensed mariners are required to possess a TWIC in order to operate under the authority of their license. TWICs are valid for five years and issued by the Transportation Security Agency (TSA). Anyone desiring access to a Coast Guard regulated facility must possess a TWIC or be escorted by a TWIC-holder that have received escort training.”
