TSA Issues 90-Day Extension of Exemption Allowing States To Extend Validity Of Expiring Hazardous Material Endorsements

The U.s. Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA) issued an extension of an exemption that allows states to recognize the validity of expired hazardous materials endorsements (HME) through October 29, 2020.

PMAA worked closely with the TSA to obtain the extension because many drivers are still unable to renew their hazardous material endorsements due to COVID-19 related closures and operational delays experience by state motor vehicle licensing agencies nationwide.

The TSA exemption only applies in states that adopt the extension and only for HMEs expiring between March 1, 2020 and October 29, 2020.
