Title: ●Hazardous Materials: Miscellaneous Amendments; Petitions for Rulemaking (RRR) 
Abstract: This rulemaking would address petitions that request minor changes to the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) for purposes of clarifying the HMR or enhancing safety, while offering some net economic benefits. These petitions require an equivalent or increased level of safety as is currently required by the HMR. Among the petitions included in this rulemaking are: P-1479--pertaining to manufacturer and third-party laboratory package markings; P-1554--IBC material thickness standards; P-1555--drop test requirements for small quantities of certain hazardous materials transported by air and vessel; and P-1556--incorporating a special permit that allows the dangerous cargo manifest to be in locations designated by the master of the vessel besides "on or near the bridge" while the vessel is in port.
