Effective June 30, 2018, new Transportation Security Administration (TSA) requirements take effect for International flights to the United States where customers are encouraged to place powder-like substances over 12 oz. / 350 mL in their checked bags.
Please note that 12 oz./350mL is approximately the size of a standard U.S. can of soda.
Powders in carry-on bags may require secondary screening, and if the powder cannot be cleared by security officials, it will be prohibited from the cabin of the aircraft.
•Powder-like substances are described as fine dry particles produced by the grinding, crushing or disintegration of a solid substance (i.e. flour, sugar, ground coffee, spices, powdered milk and cosmetics).
•Certain powders will be exempt from secondary screening, including baby formula, medically necessary powders and human remains.
•For customers departing from the United States and/or United States territories, TSA has already implemented procedures for powder-like substances at security checkpoints.
