DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AE82 Publication ID: Fall 2011 
Title: ●Hazardous Materials: Incorporation of Certain Special Permits and Competent Authorities Into the HMR (RRR)  
Abstract: This rulemaking would amend the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) to incorporate provisions contained in certain widely used or longstanding special permits and competent authorities that have established safety records. Incorporating such provisions into the HMR are intended to provide wider access to the regulatory flexibility offered in the special permits and competent authorities. The adoption of the provisions would eliminate the need for numerous application and renewal requests. The special permits proposed to be added to the regulations here would allow the transportation of "Self-heating solid, organic n.o.s. (spent bleaching earth)" in sift-proof bulk packaging;would allow the use of regulated medical waste shipping names and markings that differ from those prescribed in the HMR; would allow for the transportation of Class 9 solid coal pitch compounds in non-specification open top or closed-top sift proof metal cans or fiber drums; and would allow for the transportation of self-inflating life-saving appliances that contain non-specification steel cylinders when being transported between a vessel and an authorized facility for servicing.This rulemaking action would facilitate commerce activity and reduce paperwork burdens while maintaining an appropriate level of safety. Incorporation of these provisions would reduce the compliance burden and cost on both industry and government.
