Consolidated Security Credential for Persons Who Transport Hazardous Materials

Consolidated HazMat Security Credential

HMCRP HM-08: published as HMCRP Report 6, Feasibility of a Consolidated Security Credential for Persons Who Transport Hazardous Materials.

Project Overview

  • Objective

    • Perform a detailed evaluation of the hazardous material (HazMat) transportation worker credentialing system to identify duplicative elements and redundant costs throughout the process.

  • Key Outcome

    • Determining the feasibility of consolidating many or all of the existing credentials, necessary under current regulations and policies, into one credential for all transportation modes that is cost-effective and maintains an equal or greater level of security and safety.

Disqualifying Offenses

  • Each credential has a set of crimes, or actions, that a person may not have in their background to receive the credential.

  • Each item on the list is a disqualifying offense. Although, not having any disqualifying offenses is not a guarantee that an applicant will receive the credential, they can guarantee that the applicant will not receive the credential (in some cases the applicant can appeal).

  • To fully understand the building blocks of each credential, the research found each disqualifying offense for each credential considered. A total of 93 disqualifying offenses were identified.

  • A complete listing of the disqualifying offenses, and the associated credential, can be found in HMCRP Report 6, Feasibility of a Consolidated Security Credential for Persons Who Transport Hazardous Materials (2011).

Time to Acquire Data

  • Questionnaire

    • Used to provide the broadest range of responses

    • Posted online for approximately 7 weeks

    • Collected

      • Demographic data

      • Years involved with the transportation of hazardous materials

      • Transportation mode

      • Credentials held

      • Total time to obtain credentials (application – physical receipt)

      • Perception of the total time to obtain credential (Way too short – Way too long)

      • Time to complete application (start application – provide to agency)

      • Perception of the time to complete application (Way too short – Way too long)

      • Total time to pick-up credentials

      • Perception of the time to pick-up credentials (Way too short – Way too long)

      • Additional Comments

Consolidation Options Persons who Transport Hazardous Materials

  • Consolidation appears to be feasible for five security credentials

    • TWIC, MMD, SIDA, USPS, and CAC

  • Four consolidation options were developed using input from the Technical Advisory Group, the results of the online survey, and based on the Phase I research effort.

  • The purpose of developing four distinct options was to evaluate the potential for any of the options to succeed as a consolidated credential for persons who transport hazardous materials in any and all modes.

  • The consolidation options evaluated were:

    • TWIC

    • TWIC, MMD, SIDA, USPS, CAC

    • TWIC, MMD

    • TWIC, SIDA, CAC, MMD


  • Slide22 l.jpg

    Consolidation Options Persons who Transport Hazardous Materials

    • There are 64 total unique elements (40 requirements to obtain, 24 attributes) amongst the five credentials considered feasible for consolidation.

    • Each consolidation option was compared to the overall list to gauge applicability. Specifics can be found on page 44 of HMCRP Report 6 Feasibility of a Consolidated Security Credential for Persons Who Transport Hazardous Materials (2011).

    • Additionally, the specific background checks for each consolidation option were compared to each other to determine each option’s comprehensiveness.

    Policy Implementation Analysis Persons who Transport Hazardous Materials

    • Consolidation of any credential requires implementation of some policy, and has the potential to fail due to organizational resistance, poor implementation, and/or a lack of clear overall focus.

    • A multi-perspective analysis was done to better understand the feasibility of credential consolidation policy.

    • The three perspectives analyzed were:

      • Organizational Perspective

        • Impetus and Authority

        • Organizational Form

      • Technical Perspective

        • Organizational Climate

        • Financing

        • Risk

        • Technology Trends

      • Personal Perspective

    Conclusions Persons who Transport Hazardous Materials

    • The results of this research indicate feasibility in consolidating five HazMat credentials: TWIC, MMD, SIDA, USPS, and CAC.

    • The research also indicates that significant changes must occur to consolidate these credentials, and is dependent on information that is currently not available such as a full cost benefit analysis regarding the consolidation process.

    • In addition, the research found that the consolidation of background checks for these five credentials, and six others (FAST, NEXUS, SENTRI, CLD-HME, MMC, and U.S. Passport), are feasible. Furthermore, the background consolidation effort appears to be the most feasible first step in the overall consolidation process.

    Conclusions (cont.) Persons who Transport Hazardous Materials

    • Based on the findings of this research:

      • Cost Benefit Analysis: It is imperative to understand the short-term and long-term costs and benefits associated with consolidation of the considered credentials.

      • Consolidation of applicable background checks: The consolidation of certain credential’s background check processes pose a less significant impact to the system while offering the greatest potential for positive impact to the credential holders.

    • Details supporting these conclusions and the entire research effort can be found in HMCRP Report 6, Feasibility of a Consolidated Security Credential for Persons Who Transport Hazardous Materials (2011).
