US legislation admits biometric technology for airports

International Biometric Industry Association (IBIA) : 20 June, 2008  (Company News)
Biometric Enhancement and Airport Risk Reduction act passed by the house of representatives in America
The International Biometric Industry Association (IBIA) applauds the House of Representatives for passing HR 5982, The Biometric Enhancement and Airport-Risk Reduction (BEAR) Act of 2008 yesterday.

Tovah LaDier, Managing Director of IBIA noted "The biometrics industry appreciates the leadership of Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and the House Homeland Security Committee in developing this legislation, which provides a systematic and comprehensive approach to aviation security. The risk-based study mandated by the legislation, which provides for the involvement of all stakeholders through the aviation and airport security working group, is an important step toward successful implementation of biometric credentials in the airport environment. It will facilitate the utilization of existing best practices and standards-based, interoperable technology solutions, key attributes of a successful biometric technology implementation."

Founded in 1998 as a non-profit trade association in Washington, DC, the International Biometric Industry Association (IBIA) represents the manufacturers, developers, and solution providers of biometric technologies used in electronic human identity authentication - face, fingerprint, hand, iris, vascular, speech, as well as skin. IBIA impartially represents all biometric technologies in all applications.
