    What is a TSA Hazardous Materials Endorsement (HME) Appeal?

    Simply put, a way to get your life back.

    The Transportation Security Administration’s Hazardous Materials Endorsement Threat Assessment Program conducts a threat assessment for any driver seeking to obtain, renew and transfer a hazardous materials endorsement on a state-issued commercial driver’s license. You should apply if you have a state-issued CDL and you are required to transport materials that require placarding under the Department of Transportation hazardous materials regulations.

    If you applied for the TSA Hazardous Materials Endorsement Program (HME) and recently received a preliminary denial, then you may be eligible for an appeal or waiver. Read below to learn more about the eligibility requirements, our law firm, and how to get started on your appeal.

    How Do I Know if I Qualify For A TSA Hazardous Materials Endorsement (HME) Appeal?

    Begin your TSA Hazardous Materials Endorsement (HME) appeal online today or or contact one of experienced attorneys today.


    According to the TSA website, all United States Citizens and United States Nationals or Lawful Permanent Residents who pay the enrollment fee, participate in the application process, and who do not provide incomplete or false application information, have not committed violations of transportation security regulations, and who haven’t committed disqualifying criminal offenses and factors, are eligible to enroll in the TSA HME Program.

    If you applied for the TSA HME Program and have a criminal conviction for one of the Disqualifying Criminal Offenses listed below, then will you receive a TSA Preliminary Determination of Ineligibility Letter and will have 60 days in order to respond to it.

    TSA treats a conviction the same whether or not the person pled guilty, nolo contendere, or if the court withheld or deferred adjudication of guilt. 

    TSA, however, does not consider someone to have been convicted if the finding of guilt was overturned on appeal, pardoned (with full restoration of all rights), or expunged so that it has been removed from one’s criminal record and carries no disabilities or restrictions (except for future sentencing purposes).

    Finally, a person will be disqualified If they are under want, warrant, complaint, or indictment for a disqualifying offense or if they were found not guilty by reason of insanity or incompetent to stand trial.  A person will remain disqualified until the want or warrant is released or the complaint or indictment is dismissed and the applicant provides proof that they no longer lack mental capacity. 

    Below are tables of the various disqualifying offenses organized by whether an applicant may apply for an appeal, waiver, or neither.

    Obtain, renew, and transfer a hazardous materials endorsement on a state-issued commercial driver’s license


    Interim Disqualifying Criminal Offenses


    If someone has been convicted of one of these offenses, and the conviction occurred seven (7) years prior to applying to the HME program and they were released from incarceration more than five (5) years before they applied to the HME program, then they may be eligible for an appeal

    If, however, someone was convicted less than seven (7) years before the date of the application or released from incarceration less than five (5) years before the date of application, then they may for a waiver.

    The offenses are as follows: 

    • Unlawful possession, use, sale, manufacture, purchase, distribution, receipt, transfer, shipping, transporting, delivery, import, export, or dealing in a firearm or other weapon. A firearm or other weapon includes, but is not limited to, firearms as defined in 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(3) or 26 U.S.C. 5 845(a), or items contained on the U.S. Munitions Import List at 27 CFR 447.21

    • Voluntary manslaughter
    • Conspiracy or attempt to commit crimes in this section

    Permanent Disqualifying Criminal Offenses

    If you have been convicted of one of these felonies, you are not eligible for an appeal, but you may request a waiver

    • A crime involving a Transportation Security Incident (TSI). Note: A transportation security incident is a security incident resulting in a significant loss of life, environmental damage, transportation system disruption, or economic disruption in a particular area, as defined in 46 U.S.C. 70101. The term “economic disruption” does not include a work stoppage or other employee-related action not related to terrorism and resulting from an employer-employee dispute.
    • Improper transportation of a hazardous material under 49 U.S.C. 5124 or a comparable state law.
    • Unlawful possession, use, sale, distribution, manufacture, purchase, receipt, transfer, shipping, transporting, import, export, storage of, or dealing in an explosive or explosive device. An explosive or explosive device includes an explosive or explosive material as defined in 18 U.S.C. 232(5), 841(c) through 841(f), and 844(j); and a destructive device, as defined in 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(4) and 26 U.S.C. 5845(f).
    • Murder.

    Additionally, If you have been convicted of one of these felonies, you cannot receive an HME. You are not eligible for an appeal, and you may not request a waiver. 

    • Espionage or conspiracy to commit espionage.
    • Sedition or conspiracy to commit sedition.
    • Treason or conspiracy to commit treason.
    • A federal crime of terrorism as defined in 18 U.S.C. 2332b(g), or comparable State law, or conspiracy to commit such crimes.
    • Attempt to commit the above crimes.

    Finally, when a fingerprint-based check discloses an arrest without indicating a disposition for a disqualifying crime listed above, TSA will notify the applicant and provide instructions on how the applicant must clear the disposition. The applicant must provide TSA with written proof that the arrest did not result in conviction for the disqualifying criminal offense, within 60  days after the service date of the notification. If TSA does not receive proof in that time, TSA will notify the applicant that he or she is disqualified. In the case of an HME, TSA will notify the State that the applicant is disqualified, and in the case of a mariner applying for TWIC, TSA will notify the Coast Guard that the applicant is disqualified.

    Shea M. Randall

    Founding Attorney

    The entire process for a TSA Hazardous Materials Endorsement (HME) appeal is very time-sensitive. In order to begin the TSA Hazardous Materials Endorsement (HME) appeal process, we recommend having your denial examined by an experienced and licensed attorney. This will provide you with two things:

    1. The reassurance in knowing that an appeal is indeed available prior to signing up for a legal service, and

    2. An attorney’s informed opinion on the strength or weakness of your case.

    The analysis takes 48-72 business hours and costs $250. This cost will then be applied as a credit towards the TSA HME appeal, should you decide to pursue it. 

    If you do decide to pursue an appeal, we will begin preparing and gathering the required documentation to be submitted to the TSA along with the TSA HME Response Cover Sheet, which you would have received along with your Preliminary Eligibility Denial Letter.

    Throughout the entire appeal process, you will be in direct contact with our founding attorney, Shea M. Randall. Mr. Randall provides outstanding one-on-one communication with clients to ensure all of your legal needs are met.

    Lifeback Legal is a division of the Law Firm of Shea M. Randall, a trusted California Law Firm. We specialize in helping individuals get their life back with California criminal record expungements and federal licensing services.
