The badging process is changing to meet Transportation Security Administration (TSA) standards for a commercial use airport. These requirements affect all individuals needing unescorted access to Paine Field.
An Authorized Signatory (AS) is a position mandated by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Designated individuals must be authorized to sign and approve airport security access badges for their employees or tenants.
The Authorized Signatory (AS) varies depending on your area of operational need. The property manager, hangar owner, hangar lessee, or the chief administrative officer is usually the AS for tenants and based business partners. For professional services, contractors, and service providers, your AS will be the project manager, or the department head authorizing the work or services. If your business with Paine Field Airport does not fit into any one of these categories, please contact the credentialing office at 425-388-5125.
Initial badging appointments and badge pickups must be scheduled online. Airport tenants and businesses will be contacted about scheduling appointments. Initial appointments last approximately 20 minutes, depending on the operational access required.
The badging application must have all fields completed, reviewed, and signed by your Authorized Signatory (AS) prior to arriving at the scheduled badge appointment. Failure to complete the application, to provide necessary I-9 documents, or to have necessary AS approval will result in badge denial or at least rescheduling the appointment.
Applicants must contact their Authorized Signatory for information and direction on the badging application. If you own or lease a hangar, you are the Authorized Signatory. Additionally, badging is now a two-step process. At the initial badge appointment, documents pertaining to an applicant’s badge eligibility will be sent to TSA. Badge applicants must wait until the credentialing office receives notice of government approval. Once confirmed, the badge applicant’s Authorized Signatory will be notified to make a second appointment for training and to receive the badge. ID must be re-verified when picking up a badge
Additional screening will take place before a badge is issued, including fingerprinting and a criminal history background check.
Identification must be original documents that are not expired and meet the requirements set forth by federal regulations.
Applicants have 30 days from the date their application is approved by TSA and FBI to complete training. If training is not completed, the security badge application must be resubmitted and applicant will be charged badging fees.
Applicants must work with their Authorized Signatory for badge renewals and to schedule an appointment. Tenants with expiring badges will be accommodated with an extension until an appointment can be scheduled.
Badge costs vary depending on access level, renewal, etc.
Visa and MasterCard are the only credit cards accepted.
The credentialing office is located at 3220 100th St. SW, Suite A, Everett, WA 98204. Please remember badging is by appointment only.
