Crozier is a Certified Cargo Screening Facility (CCSF.)
Under rules set by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), since August 1, 2010, 100% of cargo loaded onto passenger flights must be individually screened.
What does this mean when shipping fine art and objects?
- Cargo screening must be performed by a TSA Certified Cargo Screening Facility.
- Packed crates must be screened by a TSA authorized CCSF at an approved facility.
- Screening may involve inspection, unpacking and handling of the artwork.
- Packers & shippers without CCSF status must outsource their screening.
- Fewer than 2% of all approved screening facilities are recognized art handling companies. Be sure to verify the screening facility your shipper selects is qualified to handle art.
- Cargo screening rules apply to both domestic and international flights.
Crozier has been a CCSF since July 2010. We provide screening to private clients, museums, galleries and art packers and shippers who want to assure that their property is screened by professional art handlers. Currently, we are the only CCSF art handling company located in Manhattan.
Certified screener training required by the TSA is combined with our own, annual in-house training that covers art handling best practices and techniques. No matter why or how our professionals are handling your art, we want them to be prepared to treat it with the care it deserves.
How can I learn more?
We encourage our clients to learn more about these rules and how they affect their collections. We are happy to advise and assist collectors, galleries, museums and industry partners in addressing their specific needs and concerns.
