MorphoTrust USA (Safran), the exclusive enrollment services provider to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) in support of the Hazardous Materials Endorsement Threat Assessment Program (HTAP), announced today that it has enrolled a total of 1.5 million commercial drivers at 135 enrollment centers. In this program, screened, trained and vetted trusted agents collect the biographic and biometric data for the 200,000 truck drivers who require a Hazardous Materials Endorsement on their commercial driver licenses each year.

In 2004, TSA launched the HTAP program in response to the USA PATRIOT Act. With this law, Congress directed TSA to perform fingerprint-based background checks for truck drivers who haul hazardous materials. TSA created HTAP as an "agent service" offering that allows states to either participate or create their own solutions to meet this mandate.

In June, the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles announced its intention to begin using the TSA’s HTAP agent service later this year. With this commitment, South Carolina becomes the 40th state to elect the TSA’s service since the program’s inception.

TSA first selected MorphoTrust to provide the HTAP service in November 2004. In 2012, TSA selected MorphoTrust as the prime contractor to transition multiple programs, including HTAP and the Transportation Worker Identity Credential, into a consolidated service with convenient locations for individuals requiring enrollment and registration for programs serviced by TSA Universal Enrollment Service.

“Universal Enrollment Service is the embodiment of MorphoTrust’s commitment to simplify, protect and secure the lives of Americans as we ensure the identity of transportation workers in a highly secure, yet convenient way,” said Bob Eckel, MorphoTrust CEO. “With our experience with these programs, and others that require the vetting of individuals with multiple biometrics, MorphoTrust is well positioned to deliver solutions of this significance and sensitivity.”

MorphoTrust has been working with TSA for more than eight years. The company provides background vetting and other identification services in all 50 states through approximately 1,200 local service centers. MorphoTrust provides a number of solutions for state motor vehicle agencies, including delivering driver license issuance systems for 42 states. It also supplies biometric systems for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Department of State.
