TSA Moves to Streamline Hazmat Endorsement Process

The Transportation Security Administration has issued an interim exemption that will allow
drivers with a valid Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) to obtain a hazardous materials endorsement without going through additional security checks.
The TSA Modernization Act passed in October 2018 allows states to issue a hazmat endorsement on a state-issued CDL to a driver who holds a valid Transportation Worker Identification Credential. This provision allows states to use the existing TWIC to verify the completion of the TSA security threat assessment.
