Hazmat Fee Rule: Fees for Security Threat Assessments for Hazmat Drivers
In response to recent statutory requirements, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is establishing a fee for security threat assessments that TSA is required to perform on individuals who apply for or renew a hazardous materials endorsement for a commercial driver's license. TSA also is establishing a fee for collection and transmission of fingerprints and biographical information, which is necessary to perform the security threat assessments. TSA intends to use fees collected under this rule to pay for the costs of the security threat assessments and the costs of collection and transmission of fingerprints and biographical information.
Protection of Sensitive Security Information; Technical Amendment
OST and TSA are revising their regulations governing the protection of sensitive security information (SSI) to remove an unintended limitation on parties that have a need to know such information. Specifically, this rule removes the limiting words ``aviation or maritime'' from 49 CFR 15.11 and 49 CFR 1520.11 in order to clearly permit the sharing of vulnerability assessments and other documents properly designated as SSI with covered persons who meet the need to know requirements regardless of mode of transportation.
