DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AE80 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Hazardous Materials: Miscellaneous Pressure Vessel Requirements (DOT Spec Cylinders) (RRR) 
Abstract: This rulemaking would revise certain requirements of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) applicable to the manufacture, maintenance, and use of DOT specification cylinders. These revisions clarify certain important safety requirements, incorporate industry consensus standards and, where appropriate, decrease the regulatory burden without compromising the safe transportation of compressed gases in commerce. This rulemaking responds to eleven petitions for rulemaking, incorporates two special permits into the HMR and addresses the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Recommendation I-93-1. Among other provisions, PHMSA would provide requirements for the transport of fire suppression systems, clarify cylinder specification and requalification requirements, and adopt new and update current incorporations by reference of industry consensus standards issued by the Compressed Gas Association.

Additional Information: Includes Retrospective Review under E.O. 13563. HM-234; SB - Y, SLT - N, IC - N; PHMSA anticipates that this rulemaking will generally reduce burdens for most stakeholders and eliminate the need to apply for special permits, as three special permits may be incorporated and lower paperwork burden. Other benefits include simplifying hazard communication requirements, and increased filling density for certain gases leading to potentially fewer vehicle trips. A future rulemaking may result in a decrease in the annual burden and costs under certain OMB Control Numbers.
