Abstract:

This rulemaking proposes to revise the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) to apply particular methods for conducting vapor pressure testing and sampling of unrefined petroleum-based products, such as petroleum crude oil. Specifically, this rulemaking proposes that persons who offer unrefined petroleum-based products for transportation, regardless of mode of transportation, apply particular methods for conducting vapor pressure testing when vapor pressure testing is a component of their written testing program.
