DHS/TSA RIN: 1652-AA16 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: Transportation of Explosives From Canada to the United States Via Commercial Motor Vehicle and Railroad Carrier 
Abstract: This Interim Final Rule (IFR), published by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on February 6, 2003, addressed security issues regarding transportation of explosives by commercial motor vehicles and railroads. It established requirements applicable to all motor carriers, motor private carriers, and railroad carriers not using U.S. citizens or lawful permanent aliens as drivers or railroad crews licensed in Canada to transport explosives to the United States. In August 2006, TSA issued an IFR superseding this February 2003 IFR as it relates to motor carriers (See RIN No. 1652-AA50). This was further amended by the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) final rule, issued January 25, 2007 (RIN No. 1652-AA41). In the future, TSA plans to issue a rulemaking action for the rail sector.
