ACTION: Notice; extension of temporary exemption. AGENCY: TSA is extending for 90 days the exemption from Renewal of the Hazardous Materials Endorsement Security Threat Assessment for Certain Individuals that TSA published on April 8, 2020, which was scheduled to expire on July 31, 2020. Under this exemption, states may extend the expiration date of hazardous materials endorsements (HMEs) that expire on or after March 1, 2020, for 180 days, due to restrictions and business closures in place in response to the COVID–19 pandemic. If a state grants an extension, the individual with an expired HME must initiate the process of renewing his or her security threat assessment (STA) for the HME no later than 60 days before the end of the state-granted extension. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 State licensing agencies and related associations report ongoing difficulties in timely renewal of expiring HMEs and asked TSA to consider extending the exemption for 90 days. TSA has determined it is in the public interest to extend the exemption for 90 days. TSA may extend this exemption at a future date depending on the status of the COVID–19 crisis. DATES: This extension of the previously issued exemption, published on April 8, 2020 (85 FR 19767), becomes effective on August 1, 2020, and remains in effect through October 29, 2020, unless otherwise modified by TSA through a notice published in the Federal Register. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephanie Hamilton, 571–227–2851 or HME.question@tsa.dhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the SARS-CoV–2 virus and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID–19) to be a global pandemic. On March 13, 2020, the President declared a National Emergency.1 The USA PATRIOT Act of 2001 requires individuals who transport hazardous materials via commercial motor vehicle to undergo a STA conducted by TSA.2 As required by TSA’s implementing regulations in 49 CFR part 1572, the STA for an HME consists of criminal, immigration, and terrorist checks. The STA and HME remain valid for five years. Under 49 CFR 1572.13(a), no state may issue or renew an HME for an individual’s commercial driver’s license (CDL), unless the state first receives a Determination of No Security Threat for the individual from TSA following the STA. An individual seeking renewal of an HME must initiate an STA at least 60 days before expiration of his or her current HME.3 The process of initiating an STA requires the individual to submit information either to the state licensing agency or a TSA enrollment center, including fingerprints and the information required by 49 CFR 1572.9,4 at least 60 days before the expiration of the HME.5 It may be impracticable for some commercial drivers to renew their STAs 1 See Proclamation 9994, Declaring a National Emergency Concerning the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID–19) Outbreak (March 13, 2020).
