US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) are discussing whether to combine their trusted traveller programmes.

TSA chief David Pekoske said the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which oversees the two agencies, is taking a “good hard look” at the possibility of combining the two programmes.

TSA PreCheck and CBP Global Entry are each designed to facilitate checkpoint screening for their registered members. The programmes have a combined total of about 12 million members, and both federal agencies would like to attract more.
