New Company Setup
This information is for all new companies/contractors/vendors wishing to obtain an Security ID Badge for the Atlantic City Airport.
New Company Introduction
This information will introduce your company to the badging procedures at the Atlantic City International Airport. Once your company has been awarded a contract to begin work at the Airport, a company representative (Human Resources, Owner, Other Company Officer, etc) must complete a Signatory Letter. This letter is a template that must be completed on your company letterhead and include contact information and email address. It will introduce your company to the airport, reference the project/business associated with your company including NAME of the Project or Business Contract, AND the name of the Parent Contractor under whom you are a SUB-contractor. This will include the signature of the authorized company representative that can authorize requests for Airport ID badges and employment certification. This authorized company representative will become the Signatory for your company.
A Signatory Company Representative is the person who coordinates the Badging process for your company, REVIEWS all the Security Badge Applications, and who completes the Employment Certification block on page 3 of the badge application. The Signatory will be the person responsible for badges issued to your company. In order to become a signatory, you must complete a Criminal History Record Check, Security Threat Assessment, SIDA Training Test and the Signatory Training Program. This training will communicate the signatory's responsibilities and duties, provide the signatory an opportunity to ask questions concerning their responsibilities and requires all signatories to certify they have completed and understand the training. The signatory training is required annually. The Signatory MUST remain active for your Company. Should the Signatory no longer be active or with your Company, they must be replaced immediately. Companies without a current active Signatory may have all the badges for Company DEACTIVATED until such time as an appropriate Signatory is in place.
Once the Signatory Letter has been received, you may request an Security ID Badge Application from the Airport Badging office or emailing email@example.com. This application must be completed for each individual requesting an Airport Security ID Badge. (Note: The authorized Signatory Company Representative must sign page 3 of the application. For the Signatory's application, the Signatory must sign for themselves. The Signatory MUST complete the ENTIRE process before any others from the company may start the Security Badging process. Upon completion of the application, call Airport Operations at (609) 645-7895 ext. 2002 to make a fingerprinting appointment. Fingerprinting is done Monday-Friday 9am - 3pm. At the time of the fingerprint, the applicant must bring the completed badge application, a certified check or money order made out to South Jersey Transportation Authority and two (2) forms of identification listed on Page 6 of Security ID Badge Application.
The badge approval process could take up to two (2) weeks. You will be contacted by the ACY Badging Office to inform you of the status of your Application. If no response is received after two weeks, you can check the status of your badge application by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once approved, a testing appointment can be made with Airport Operations at (609)645-7895 ext. 2002. Upon successful completion of the applicable tests, an Airport badge will be issued.
An AUDIT of all Security ID Badges issued will be conducted by the Airport, as required by Transportation Security Administration Regulation 1542. At that time, the airport will send a list of employees that have been issued badges from your company. The Signatory Company Representative will be responsible for completing the audit and provide the following information for all listed employees:
- Employment status (badge must be returned if no longer employed)
- Location of badge (returned to company, retained by employee, lost etc)
- Badge updated if still employed (do not let badge expire for more than 30 days)
If you have any questions about the badging process, please contact Dan North at 609-645-7895 Ext. 4715 or email at email@example.com.
(Please use this format on your company letterhead and include an email address contact.)
