Liquids Rule for Travel from France to USA

We live in the US but are leaving for France tomorrow for a vacation. This will be our first trip outside of the US in quite a few years.
We currently have TSA Precheck so don't need to place our liquids and gels in the quart bag outside of our luggage.on domestic flights. Just leave them in the carry on bag
What if any are the requirements for the international flight from the US point of departure (ATL) and the French point of return (CDG) that would be different
Thanks!

In my experience...Prep the same as you would leaving the US.

And don't forget duty free spirits, if you imbibe.

Departing ATL - no difference from a domestic flight. Domestic and international departures are screened identically by TSA. But if you are flying an obscure airline they may not participate in PreCheck. Check the list of participating airlines: https://www.tsa.gov/precheck/participating-airlines

Departing CDG - same rules as if you were a non-PreCheck passenger in the US. One clear bag, taken out of your carry-on luggage; 100ml max per item.
TWA884 and rickg523 like this.

I think officially you're also limited to only 6 of those 100ml containers.
However I see loads of people going through with clear bags overflowing, especially ladies with make-up, and nothing much is said.
That 100ml limit through is strictly applied.

Just went through CDG (return to US) today. There's no Precheck exemption. Same 3-1-1 rule (100-1-1 in metric). They have bags if you don't. It is enforced.

Yes. And same rules for departing CDG to any or all airports. The EU and US liquid restriction rules are fully harmonized in policy, and they are applicable regardless of carrier when flying from or via CDG. For the return to the US, getting PreCheck or not on a boarding pass makes no difference to the airports’ security screeners: you will still have to remove larger electronics and liquids/gels/aerosols at CDG or any other EU/Schengen airport used to commence a journey in/from/within the Schengen zone.

There is no limit in the US to the number of <100ml containers, except that they must all fit in one 1-quart bag.

A 1-quart bag isn't very big, so you can't realistically fit many <100ml containers in it anyway. That was the whole point behind the rule.

I remember seeing somewhere that you can have a total of 1 litre of liquids in containers smaller than 100 ml. However, in most cases they don't seem to enforce the bag size or the total volume, at least here in Europe, but also in the US IIRC. I've also had containers slightly larger, or that look larger, and haven't had a problem, especially when traveling with a child.
