DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AF09 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Hazardous Materials: Miscellaneous Petitions for Rulemaking (RRR) 
Abstract: PHMSA is considering amendments that would propose adoption of petitions to PHMSA that propose only minor changes to the regulations for clarification, enhanced safety, or economic benefit with no reduction in the level of safety. It responds to petitions that offer more efficient and effective ways of achieving the shared goal of safe and secure transportation of hazardous materials in commerce. These petitions that were submitted according to PHMSA's rulemaking procedure regulations, in 49 CFR 106.95, which provide for persons to ask PHMSA to add, amend or delete a regulation by filing a petition for rulemaking containing adequate support for the requested action. This action would be in support of governmental efforts to provide regulatory relief to the regulated community while enhancing existing safety.
