Hazardous Materials: Actions on Special Permit Applications, 22782-22784 [2015-09355]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 22782 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 78 / Thursday, April 23, 2015 / Notices information for the product being shipped, although not required, is one form of information that may be used to satisfy the emergency response information requirements. Section 172.602(a)(1) requires that the emergency response information contain the basic description and technical name of the hazardous material as required by §§ 172.202 and 172.203(k). Section 172.602(b)(3) requires that the emergency response information be presented (i) on a shipping paper; (ii) in a document, other than a shipping paper, that includes both the basic description and technical name of the hazardous material (e.g. safety data sheet); or (iii) related to the information on a shipping paper, in a separate document (e.g., an emergency response guidance document such as the most current revision of the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG)), in a manner that cross references the description of the hazardous material on the shipping paper with the emergency response information contained in the document. If a guide number page from the ERG is used, it must include the basic description and, if applicable, the technical name of the hazardous material. If the entire ERG is present, however, the requirements of § 172.602 are satisfied. Emergency response information must also be immediately available for use. Section 172.600(c) requires any person who offers, accepts, transfers or otherwise handles hazardous materials during transportation not do so unless emergency response information is immediately available for use at all times the hazardous material is present. Additionally, emergency response information, including the emergency response telephone number, must be immediately available to any person who, as a representative of a Federal, State or local government agency, responds to an incident involving a hazardous material, or is conducting an investigation which involves a hazardous material. Section 172.602(c) prescribes the maintenance of emergency response information. This information must be immediately accessible to train crew personnel, drivers of motor vehicles, flight crew members, and bridge personnel on vessels for use in the event of incidents involving hazardous materials. Carriers must maintain emergency response information in the same manner as VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:53 Apr 22, 2015 Jkt 235001 prescribed for shipping papers (Subpart C of Part 172 of the HMR). Emergency response information must be accompanied by an emergency response telephone number in accordance with § 172.604. This telephone number must be monitored at all times the hazardous material is in transportation, including storage incidental to transportation. The telephone number must be of a person who is either knowledgeable of the hazardous material being shipped and has comprehensive emergency response and incident mitigation information for that material, or has immediate access to a person who possess such knowledge and information. NTSB Safety Recommendation R–14–18 As a result of the November 30, 2012 accident in which a Consolidated Rail Corporation train containing hazardous materials derailed, spilling vinyl chloride into Mantua Creek in Paulsboro, New Jersey, the NTSB issued a number of new Safety Recommendations. Among the recommendations issued to PHMSA was R–14–18, which urged PHMSA to ‘‘take action to ensure that emergency response information carried by train crews is consistent with and is at least as protective as existing emergency response guidance provided in the Emergency Response Guidebook.’’ 3 We are considering possible alternatives, including regulatory action, to affect this recommendation. Conclusion Emergency response information is a critical component of hazardous materials safety. The responsibility to provide accurate and timely information is a shared responsibility for all persons involved in the transportation of hazardous materials. It is a shipper’s responsibility to provide accurate emergency response information that is consistent with both the information provided on a shipping paper and the material being transported. Likewise, reofferors of hazardous materials must ensure that this information can be verified to be accurate, particularly if the material is altered, mixed or otherwise repackaged prior to being placed back into transportation.

PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 addition, carriers must ensure that emergency response information is maintained appropriately, is accessible and can be communicated immediately in the event of a hazardous materials incident. Fulfilling these responsibilities is critical in reducing the severity of a hazardous materials incident and reduces the risk to emergency response personnel, transportation workers, and the general public.
