(A) The registrar of motor vehicles shall not issue, renew, upgrade, or transfer a hazardous materials endorsement for a commercial driver's license to any individual authorizing that individual to operate a commercial motor vehicle transporting a hazardous material in commerce unless the registrar has received from the transportation security administration a determination indicating that the individual does not pose a security risk warranting denial of the endorsement.

(B)

(1) Immediately upon receiving a determination from the transportation security administration that an individual poses a security risk warranting denial of a hazardous materials endorsement, the registrar shall revoke any existing hazardous materials endorsement and shall refuse to issue a hazardous materials endorsement for the individual named as a security risk.

(2) Within fifteen days of receiving any determination from the transportation security administration indicating the status of an individual's security risk, the registrar shall notify the commercial driver license information system of the results of the security assessment.

(C) The registrar shall order any revocation under division (B) of this section without a hearing. Any person adversely affected by the order may request an administrative hearing before the registrar. The scope of the hearing shall be limited to whether the bureau of motor vehicles properly revoked the hazardous material endorsement after receiving notification from the transportation security administration and shall not include consideration of whether the transportation security administration acted properly in sending the notification.
