The termination of these approvals will take effect one year from the publication date of this notice. Approval holders must either show cause why their approvals should not be terminated or apply for a modification of their approval prior to the effective date to avoid termination. Once terminated, requests for reconsideration of the termination must be submitted within 20 days of the date of termination. SUMMARY: Notice. Jkt 244001 Mr. Ryan Paquet, Director, Approvals and Permits Division, Office of Hazardous Materials Safety, (202) 366–4512, PHMSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE., Washington, DC 20590 or at approvals@ dot.gov. Correspondence regarding the proposed M-number and R-number terminations should be sent to approvals@dot.gov with the subject line ‘‘Termination of M-numbers/ Termination of R-numbers.’’ SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Introduction PHMSA is proposing to terminate the approvals discussed below to standardize all approvals issued by the Approvals and Permits Division. Previously approved R-numbers and Mnumbers that were issued without an expiration date will be terminated unless approval holders either show cause why their approvals should not be terminated as provided in 49 CFR 107.713(c)(1) or apply for a modification of their approval in accordance with 49 CFR 107.705 prior to the effective date. Modified approvals will conform to the Approvals and Permits Division’s standardized format in which all approvals have a 5-year expiration date. PO 00000 Frm 00150 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54465 II. Background The Approvals and Permits Division issues registration numbers, referred to as ‘‘M-numbers,’’ to companies that manufacture or recondition packaging related to hazardous materials. This registration number is used for identification purposes in place of the manufacturer or reconditioner’s name and address, as authorized in 49 CFR 178.503. In previous years, PHMSA issued reconditioner approvals, known as an ‘‘R-number,’’ to companies that reconditioned packages related to hazardous materials. PHMSA no longer issues R-numbers and now issues Mnumbers in their place. However, many R-number approvals are still active. Standardization of the M-number and R-number approval processes will allow PHMSA to regularly review approval documents and track changes. It will ensure that all applicants are subject to the same renewal timelines and requirements to contact PHMSA when pertinent information pertaining to the approval holder has changed. PHMSA is concerned that holders of approvals issued without expiration dates may have stopped operations, or changed their names or principal places of business without notifying PHMSA. Requiring these holders to modify their approvals will require them to reestablish contact and communication with PHMSA. Although this process will assist PHMSA in monitoring and communicating with the regulated industry, PHMSA has also communicated with the regulated community on its proposed actions, at various public meetings with several companies and industry associations, to gauge the effect and benefits of this action to the regulated public. The comments received by PHMSA from the regulated public reflect that this action will greatly assist the regulated community by allowing approval holders, and other entities, to monitor the validity of their approval, renew in a timely manner, and search and determine compliance by using the updated listing on PHMSA’s Web page. Lastly, this action will allow companies that are still identifiable and known within the public realm, by a previously registered ‘‘R-Number,’’ to maintain their public notoriety, while updating their approval to current standards and requirements without disruption. III. Action The proposed termination of these approvals will take effect one year from the publication date of this notice. Holders of R-numbers and any Mnumbers that were issued without an E:\FR\FM\17NON1.SGM 17NON1
