DOT/PHMSA RIN: 2137-AF30 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Hazardous Materials: Response to an Industry Petition to Reduce Regulatory Burden for Cylinder Requalification Requirements 

PHMSA would amend the requalification intervals for certain DOT specification cylinders used in non-corrosive gas service in response to a petition for rulemaking (P-1696) submitted by The National Propane Gas Association. This rulemaking action would provide regulatory relief and cost savings to industry; specifically, a reduction in the requalification costs and associated costs for personnel training. Additionally, this rulemaking action would reduce regulatory burden, simplify compliance, and provide greater overall flexibility when requalifying these specific cylinders.
