DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AE58 Publication ID: Fall 2010 
Title: Hazardous Materials: Adoption of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section XII and the National Board Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors Code 
Abstract: PHMSA would consider amending the HMR to revise existing requirements applicable to the design, construction and certification of cargo tank motor vehicles and cryogenic portable tanks and to reference the standards in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section XII. The rule would also consider revising the continuing qualification and maintenance requirements for cargo tank motor vehicles and portable tanks to reference the National Board Boiler and Pressure Inspectors' National Board Inspection Code. We would solicit comments to identify gaps or inconsistencies between current requirements and the consensus standards which would be considered for adoption into the HMR. The rule would also solicit information on the potential costs and burdens that would be associated with compliance with these consensus standards. This rulemaking would address two petitions for rulemaking to incorporate the above referenced consensus standards for transport tanks.
