Non-compliance with SP package requirements has serious safety consequences. PHMSA seeks to encourage compliance by aggressively enforcing SP safety standards and increasing its awareness and outreach efforts. Accordingly, PHMSA is publishing this safety notice to further promote awareness of the ongoing safety concern and ensure that industry is aware of its responsibilities associated with the offering and transportation of hazardous materials in SP packaging, the current regulatory requirements applicable to such transportation, and that regulatory violations will be prosecuted to the maximum extent permitted under the law. Persons who violate the HMR may be subject to significant civil penalties and/ or criminal fines and imprisonment. Maximum civil penalties may be imposed of up to $55,000 per violation or $110,000 per violation if a death, serious illness, or severe injury occurs to a person or substantial destruction of property. Potential criminal penalties include fines of up to $500,000 and/or ten years in jail. More detailed information on the requirements in the HMR governing the offering and transportation of SP packages is available on DOT’s Hazmat Safety Web site: http:// www.phmsa.dot.gov/hazmat. The HMR are also accessible through PHMSA’s Web site, and answers to specific questions may be obtained from the Hazardous Materials Information Center at 1–800–467–4922 (in Washington, DC, call 202–366–4488). mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES III.

Internal Revenue Service [FR Doc. 2011–22110 Filed 8–29–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4910–60–P PHMSA recommends that industry institute quality control measures to identify and properly handle DOT SP packages and packages containing hazardous materials in general: (1) Shippers and carriers should stress the importance of recognizing an SP package to their employees. The importance of recognizing an SP package should be given the same level of attention as when they determine whether a packaging specification meets a UN standard or DOT specification. This is especially important to those operations that re-ship packages. VerDate Mar<15>2010 (2) Once a person has identified a DOT SP package, that person should obtain a current copy of the SP and review it for applicable requirements. Copies of SPs may be obtained from PHMSA’s Web site at: http:// phmsa.dot.gov/hazmat/regs/sp-a/ special-permits. The person should also review the HMR requirements applicable to SP packages. (3) Shippers and carriers should evaluate hazardous materials training programs and communication protocols in their operations with respect to recognizing and handling SP packages to ensure that the subject is discussed and included during knowledge testing. Any person performing a function required by an SP or shipping an SP package is required to receive ‘‘functionspecific’’ training of the requirements contained in each special permit. (4) Third-party hazardous materials or dangerous goods instructors, consultants, and others, should review their training programs to ensure that the subject of SP packages is discussed and included during knowledge testing. (5) Shippers should implement or review existing pre-shipment procedures to ensure that a particular packaging is prepared as authorized by an SP and/or the HMR and that all communication requirements have been met. These recommendations are not exclusive; we hope that industry representatives will use the information provided herein, together with any other available information, to consider other reasonable measures they believe appropriate to increase awareness of DOT SPs and their responsibility in the handling and transporting such packages.
