Description:

ALERT: The Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration PHMSA has already published HM-215N, the most recent harmonization rule, on March 30, 2017.

The PHMSA usually reviews all of the changes and publishes a final rule biannually to harmonize with international standards, so it will keep issuing final rules to address the international updates. The recent publishing of the final rule means HM-215N is now in effect. Its deadline for compliance is January 1, 2018.

Also, the PHMSA recently increased the civil penalty for knowingly violating federal hazardous materials transportation regulations from $77,114 to $78,376. Additionally, it’s issuing a final rule to amend the Hazardous Materials Regulations HMR to maintain consistency with international regulations and standards by incorporating various amendments, including changes to proper shipping names, hazard classes, packing groups, special provisions, packaging authorizations, air transport quantity limitations, and vessel stowage requirements. This rulemaking project is part of PHMSA’s ongoing biennial process to harmonize the HMR with international regulations and standards.

The rule changes are significant and cover many different areas with various compliance dates. For example, amendments to the hazardous materials table will affect:

  • proper shipping names, hazard classes, packing groups, packaging authorizations, bulk packaging requirements, and passenger and cargo aircraft maximum quantity limits;
  • the marine pollutant list;
  • packaging requirements for water-reactive transported materials;
  • hazard communication requirements for lithium batteries; and
  • engine, internal combustion/machinery, and internal combustion shipping name revisions.
Companies, including those involved as shippers, package testers, and packaging and labeling manufacturers, need to pay close attention to the final rule, as many HMR changes will affect them.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on the rulemaking that’s being used to update and align the HMR with changes in the international dangerous goods regulations (hazardous materials).

You’ll learn:
  • Changes to key hazardous materials regulations that required harmonization—and the practical impact the revisions will have on your practices
  • Which regulatory agencies are involved in this harmonization process
  • How existing hazardous material regulations differ from the new requirements going into effect
  • Likely compliance timelines concerning implementation of the new regulations
  • Pointers for modifying existing programs to address changes to key regulations such as the Hazardous Materials Table (49 CFR 172.101), which covers critical information related to:
    • the adding, revising or removing of shipping names
    • correct hazard class and packing group interpretation
    • bulk packaging requirements
    • vessel stowage codes
    • maximum limits for aircraft transportation and marine pollutants

  • How to navigate the changes for marine pollutants, special provisions, and absorbed gases
  • Tips for getting up to speed on ICAO Technical Instructions, the IMDG Code, the IATA code, the UN Model Regulations, the UN Manual of
  • Test and Criteria, and the Canadian Transportation of Dangerous Goods
  • Best practices for managing labeling and placards

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.
