TSA extends deadline for fingerprinting hazmat drivers until April 1, 2004

| Wednesday, November 05, 2003

The Transportation Security Administration is amending its "interim final" rule that establishes standards for security threat assessments of individuals applying for, renewing or transferring a hazardous materials endorsement for a commercial driver’s license.  

TSA is moving the date on which fingerprint-based criminal history record checks must begin to April 1, 2004.  If a state is unable to collect this information by April 1, 2004, the state must submit a request for extension to TSA on or before that date.
