Certification Official Information

Airport security is a serious matter and one which requires trustworthy dedicated individuals to oversee the various processes. One of the individuals that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requires is an Authorized Signer, known at Reagan National as the Designated Certified Official or Certification Official.  As a Certification Official, a great responsibility is placed upon the individual to help the Airport Authority ensure the integrity and accountability of the badging and access control systems for the respective company.

An individual must be designated by their company to be a Certification Official through a request submitted on the Designated Certification Official Letter.  Once the request is approved and the Certification Official has cleared the process, the Designated Certification Official Letter will be kept on file in the Pass & ID Office and must be updated by the company within 7 business days if there are any changes.

The Designated Certification Official must complete the following prior to any other employee starting the badge application process:

  1. Apply for and receive an airport issued ID badge using the Badge Application Form and Fingerprint Application. 

  2. Complete the Security Training and the Certification Official Training video. This training must be completed annually as part of the badge renewal training for the Designated Certification Official. 

  3. Attend a meeting with the Pass and ID Supervisor to discuss your duties and responsibilities. Please contact the Pass and ID office at the information listed below and ask to speak to the Supervisor to schedule the meeting.

 Additionally, you must maintain a valid ID badge and complete the applicable annual training in order to retain your status as a Certification Official.

It is the responsibility of a Certification Official to have a complete understanding of the duties and responsibilities, to understand the basic concepts and requirements of airport security, and to be proactively involved in the role as a Certification Official.  Failure of the Certification Official to comply with any of the requirements may cause delays in processing a company’s employees or personnel through the Pass and ID Office.

To help the Certification Official in understanding the duties and responsibilities, the Pass and ID Office has developed the Certification Official Packet for guidance, which must be signed along with the Certification Official Training Certification.

When returning ID badges to the Pass and ID Office, please complete the Returned Badge Receipt Form and bring it along with the badges to the Pass and ID office.  The form will be signed off by the Pass and ID Office and you will be provided a copy of the signed receipt.

If your employee has a lost, stolen, or otherwise unaccounted badge and they need to have a new one issued; please ensure that they bring the UNACCOUNTED BADGE FORM with them to the Pass and ID Office.

On-Boarding New Companies

Any company seeking to work on Airport property for more than 30 days without escorts, must obtain Airport Authorization by:

  1. Completing a Sponsor Letter for Company Form form with the help of the company's Airport Sponsor.
