About IACS

Installation Access Control System

  • Installation Access Control System (IACS), a personnel access verification system, is a central network database linked to all Installation Access Control Offices, selected Central Processing Facilities, MP Stations, and Access Control Points in USAREUR and USAFE (Germany only), and will produce an installation pass for those authorized access.

IACS Requirements

  • Army in Europe Regulation 190-16, Section III

  • DOD ID cardholders stationed in Europe (on orders) must be registered in IACS.

  • DOD ID cardholders who are on TDY (on orders) in Europe: These individuals may be registered in the IACS for the duration of their TDY.

  • Active duty military personnel and retirees who are visiting Europe: These individuals may be registered in the IACS for the duration of their visit, up to 90 days, or the date specified by the host nation visa.

  • Retired military members living in the host country: These individuals may be registered in the IACS if they have an Aufenthaltstitel from the host country. Retirees visiting the host country may also register in IACS for the duration of their visit.

  • DOD ID cardholders (including minors) who are EU citizens but are not command-sponsored (no SOFA status): These individuals may be registered in the IACS for the duration of their stay or the expiration date of their ID card, whichever is earlier. NOTE: Individuals who have multiple DOD ID cards (for example, a military retiree who is now a DA civilian employee or a technical expert status accreditation (TESA) contractor) must choose which DOD ID card they want to use for IACS registration and use that card to gain access to installations.

Visitors: Bringing Guests On-Post


  • There are several ways to get installation access for your guests. Visiting family and friends who qualify, or personnel on official business, may be issued access. Contact your local IACS Office for the most up-to-date procedures

Policies & Procedures

Privileges


  • Temporary installation-pass holders are not authorized sign-in privileges.

  • DOD ID cardholders not registered in the IACS are not authorized sign-in privileges. Exceptions are for active duty DOD ID cardholders who are either on TDY or leave. (For example, a DOD ID cardholder who is on leave from a deployment and visiting USAG Garmisch may sign in Family members and guests with an approved leave form.)

  • Sign-in privileges are limited to signing in four individuals and their vehicles at any one time.

  • Individuals who require recurring access will not use sign-in procedures to avoid the installation-pass application process or access-roster requirements.

Sponsor Responsibilities

  • The sponsor will monitor the activity of individual they sign-in and be responsible for their conduct. Failure to follow sign-in policy and procedures may result in the withdrawal of sign-in privileges.
