Published on : Monday, March 10, 2014

ASTAThe American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) today announced the release of its 2014 U.S. Travel Agency Regulatory Compliance Handbook which is designed to help members comply with regulatory, statutory and legal obligations.

“The compliance handbook is a valuable resource for ASTA members,” said ASTA President and CEO, Zane Kerby. “Government agencies have been handing out unprecedented fines to agencies of all sizes. Forewarned is Forearmed.”

ASTA’s 2014 U.S. Travel Agency Regulatory Compliance Handbook is a plain-English white paper that explains the major federal statutes and regulations that directly impact travel agents. To help members meet their regulatory obligations, and to help reduce their risk of civil enforcement penalties, ASTA updated the handbook to reflect interpretations found in recent Enforcement Orders. The 2014 handbook also contains new guidance on the pending Hazardous Materials Rule. ASTA members can obtain a copy of the handbook at


In addition, ASTA has recently held a series of regulatory compliance webinars. Well over 800 ASTA member travel professionals have participated in this webinar series. Members can access a recording of the Feb. 27 webinar at The next live regulatory compliance webinar will be held on May 7, 2014.
