SAN ANTONIO, Calif. The Transportation Security Administration won’t meet its own deadline to start conducting fingerprint background checks for U.S. hazmat drivers.

"We are not in a position to start 16 days from now," Justin Oberman, director of TSA’s credentialing unit, told trucking executives at the ATA Management Conference & Exhibition in San Antonio Oct. 20.

The deadline set by the agency for states to begin fingerprinting anyone renewing or applying for a new commercial driver license with a hazmat endorsement was originally Nov. 3. There are an estimated 3.2-million drivers who currently haul hazardous materials. About five million drivers have hazmat certifications on their commercial drivers licenses.
