DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AE32 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: +Hazardous Materials: Combination Packages Containing Liquids Intended for Transport by Aircraft  
Abstract: Incident data and testing conducted on behalf of DOT indicate many combination packagings authorized for the transportation of hazardous materials may not withstand conditions normally incident to air transportation. PHMSA is considering measures to reduce the incidence of package failures and to minimize the consequences of failures should they occur. This rulemaking would require additional measures to verify packaging integrity, such as performance testing, and revisions to packaging requirements, such as the addition of liners or absorbent material.
