DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AE78 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Hazardous Materials: Miscellaneous Amendments (RRR)(Section 610 Review) 
Abstract: This rulemaking would update and clarify existing requirements by incorporating changes into the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) based on PHMSA´s own initiatives through an extensive review of the HMR and previously issued letters of interpretation. Specifically, among other provisions, PHMSA would provide for the continued use of approvals until final administrative action is taken, when a correct and completed application for approval renewal was received 60 days prior to expiration date; update various entries in the hazardous materials table and the corresponding special provisions; clarify the lab pack requirements for temperature controlled materials; correct an error in the HMR with regard to the inspection of cargo tank motor vehicles containing corrosive materials; and revise the training requirements to require that hazardous materials employers ensure their hazardous materials employee training records are available upon request to an authorized official of the Department of Transportation or the Department of Homeland Security.

Final Rule  01/00/2013 
Additional Information: Includes Retrospective Review under E.O. 13563. HM-218G; SB - Y, IC - N, SLT - N; The amendments in the final rule are marginally cost beneficial but are difficult to quantity. These changes reduce the paperwork burden, ensure consistency between domestic and international regulations, and result in net benefits without compromising safety. In harmonizing the alcoholic beverage requirements with those of the ICAO TI we conservatively estimate a cost of $187,000 on the alcohol beverage industry ($93 / entity).
