SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The primary purpose of this meeting will be to prepare for the 34th session of the UNSCOE TDG and to discuss draft U.S. positions on UNSCOE proposals. The 34th session of the UNSCOE TDG is the final meeting in the current biennium cycle. The UNSCOE will consider proposals for the 16th Revised Edition of the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods Model Regulations which will come into force in the international regulations from January 1, 2011. Topics to be covered during the public meetings include: Transport of limited quantities and consumer commodities, use of electronic documentation, requirements for toxic by inhalation liquids, requirements for cryogenic receptacles, requirements for lithium batteries, fumigated units and dry ice, harmonization with the IAEA Regulations for the safe transport of radioactive materials, guiding principles for the development of the Model Regulations, and various proposals related to listing, classification, packaging, and hazard communication. In addition, PHMSA is soliciting comments on how to further enhance harmonization for international transport of hazardous materials. PHMSA is finalizing an international strategic plan to address harmonization and welcomes input on items which stakeholders believe should be included in this plan. Finally, PHMSA is soliciting comments regarding a potential future rulemaking action regarding the use of international regulations, in particular the International Civil Aviation Organization’s Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (ICAO TI) and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code). PHMSA is considering proposing to mandate the use of these regulations for the international transportation (see 49 CFR 171.8) of hazardous materials by aircraft or vessel. PHMSA requests comments regarding this prospective proposal.
