Yes, welcome to artemis! I believe that key to notarizing something is to have the original on hand. Even better if you can get the notary to make the photocopy and notarize in one fell swoop.

TSA screwed up

Nothing new here except TSA having the guts to put it on the front page of their website. Rather than starting with "We recognize that some passengers" it should be "We deeply apologize and regret that some passengers," but that's a nit pick.

Still a lot of question as to if the "clearance" process does any good.

Also interesting that TSA recognizes the Privacy Act impilcations of this clearance process as indicated in the text although they continue to fail to do so when an ETD alarms.
I jumped thru all the hoops and it is only a marginal improvement. Only helps on certain airlines, and then only if u are a frequent flyer with an ID on each airline.

What an absolute waste of time and security dollars.

What gets my goat even more is that the TSA could have at least put a PDF file of the PIV form so that I don't have to wait wait wondering whether or not someone trashed my original request.

The really dumb thing is that TSA obviously added anywhere from hundreds of thousands to millions of passengers to these lists. In effect they cast such a wide net, that now they are going to have to expend huge resources just to send out forms, review the forms, and notify airlines of the many corrections. What do they think the US is, Iraq with an estimated 40,000 insurgents running amok?
Same thing happened to me, called the TSA and provided all of the requested information over the phone so i could get my paperwork from them and nothing.......about 30 days later i called again and they faxed me the information right away. I've sent in the completed forms and 4 notorized copies of the accepted forms of I.D. and i am still waiting for an answer from the TSA, it's been about 25 days so far. Good luck!!

It took ten months (first watchlist problem occurred for me in January 2005), but this appears to have worked for me. Two weeks ago I checked in with the WN CSA, was told that my reservation was populated with my passport number, etc. and it wouldn't be long until OLCI worked for me. This morning it did.
