The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is proposing changes to harmonize hazardous material regulations with recent changes to maritime, air and international dangerous good shipping regulations.
The purpose of these proposed changes would be to align current U.S. hazmat shipping rules with international standards, including recent changes in regulations with the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code, United Nations (UN), and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
Categories and topics addressed in the proposed rules include:
By incorporating various amendments, this PHMSA rule would make changes to proper shipping names, hazard classes, packing groups, special provisions, packaging authorizations, air transport quantity limitations and vessel stowage requirements.
Comments on the proposed changes can be made until Jan. 28, 2019.
