Security Recognition Program

SFO’s Aviation Security & Regulatory Compliance Office (AVSEC) ensures compliance with the Airport's Security Enforcement Program and is the primary source for airport tenants and vendors' security-related questions and concerns.  AVSEC manages the Security Operations Center (SOC). Badging and permits are issued through SFO's Security Access Office.

AVSEC issues Airport Security Bulletins (ASB). ASBs are notices issued by the Airport concerning specific security requirements for Airport tenants, permit holders, or contractors.  ASBs have an issue date and an expiration date. The adoption of any amendment to these Rules and Regulations may incorporate all or any applicable portion of current ASBs into the Rules and Regulations.  ASBs issued after the adoption date of the most recent amendment to the Rules and Regulations shall have the force and effect of a Rule and may be enforced as provided in Rule 14.



AVSEC can be accessed through the SOC
Terminal 2, Departures Level (adjacent to American Airlines ticket counter and the connector between Terminals 2 and 3).



Non-validated parking is available in the Domestic Garage, Section E.
