Additionally, the Employer is responsible for obtaining/confiscating the badge and immediately returning the physical badge to the Airport Badging Office (within 48 hours of the termination)for accounting and shredding.
The following procedure shall be followed by the Tenant/Employer:
- Obtain/confiscate the badge upon termination, completion, or work reassignment

The badge holder and their Employer are responsible for renewing the badge prior to the expiration date.
The badge is deactivated on the expiration date, however, the badge holder information remains valid for 30 days for re-badging after expiration date. If the badge expired more than 30 days prior, renewal requires re-application and re-fingerprinting as if you were a new badge applicant.
