DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AF10 Publication ID: Spring 2017 
Title: Hazardous Materials: Notification of the Pilot-in-Command and Response to Air Related Petitions for Rulemaking (RRR) 

In consultation with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), PHMSA proposes to amend the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) to align with current international standards for the air transportation of hazardous materials. The proposals in this rule would amend certain special provisions and packaging requirements sections to remove intermediate packaging requirements for certain low and medium danger hazardous materials or provide alternative intermediate packaging authorizations, notification of pilot-in-command (NOTOC) requirements, and exceptions for passengers and crew members. In addition to harmonization with international standards, several of the proposals in this rule are responsive to petitions for rulemaking submitted by the regulated community.
