ACTION: Direct final rule. SUMMARY: This direct final rule amends the Hazardous Materials Regulations to revise the quantity limitation from 25 kg ‘‘gross’’ to 25 kg ‘‘net’’ for packages of chemical oxygen generators transported aboard cargo aircraft only. The intended effect of this rule is to provide regulatory relief by raising the quantity threshold for shipments of chemical oxygen generators transported aboard cargo aircraft only. This action is necessary to address difficulties concerning implementation and compliance with the requirements for the transportation of chemical oxygen generators in outer packagings meeting certain flame penetration resistance standards and thermal protection capabilities, as evidenced by comments received from the hazardous materials industry and other interested parties. The amendment contained in this rule is a minor substantive change, in the public interest, and unlikely to result in adverse comment. DATES: This direct final rule is effective November 16, 2009, unless an adverse comment or notice of intent to file an adverse comment is received by November 16, 2009. PHMSA will publish in the Federal Register a timely document confirming the effective date of this final rule.

Background The National Transportation Safety Board found that one of the probable causes of the May 11, 1996 crash of ValuJet Airlines flight No. 596 was a fire in the airplane’s cargo compartment that was initiated and enhanced by the actuation of one or more chemical oxygen generators that were being improperly carried as cargo. Following that tragedy, in which 110 lives were lost, the Department of Transportation: —Prohibited the transportation of chemical oxygen generators (including personal-use chemical oxygen generators) on board passenger-carrying aircraft and the transportation of spent chemical oxygen generators on both passengercarrying and cargo-only aircraft, 61 FR 26418 (May 24, 1996), 61 FR 68952 (Dec. 30, 1996), 64 FR 45388 (Aug. 19, 1999); —Issued standards governing the transportation of chemical oxygen generators on cargo-only aircraft (and by motor vehicle, rail car and vessel), including the requirement for an approval issued by the Research and Special Programs Administration E:\FR\FM\15OCR1.SGM 15OCR1
