The legislature finds that process servers play an important role in facilitating a timely judicial process and protecting public safety. Civil process servers... in Hawaii are not required to obtain a license.
In light of ongoing concerns regarding service of process, the legislature finds that the department of public safety should more clearly define and delineate the duties and responsibilities of process servers under its jurisdiction and examine ways of certifying and registering its process servers.
The purpose of this Act is to require the department of public safety to convene a working group to clarify the duties and responsibilities of process servers under the department's jurisdiction, create a process of registration and certification of process servers, and address other relevant issues.
"When a case is electronically filed and process is to be served under this subsection, the chief judge of each judicial district shall determine the procedure for service of process through an agreement with a local enforcement agency."

I wonder if New Hampshire Process Servers know about it.
Service of process in an action ...or suit within 90 days of commencement of the action or suit against a defendant shall be timely as to that defendant. Service of process on a defendant more 90 days after the suit or action was commenced shall be timely upon a finding by the court that the plaintiff exercised due diligence to have timely service made on the defendant.
