Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration August 30, 2012 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Hazardous Materials: Revision to Fireworks Regulations (RRR)
Document Number: 2012-21360
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2012-08-30
Agency: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
PHMSA is proposing to revise the Hazardous Materials Regulations applicable to the approval of Division 1.4G consumer fireworks (UN0336 Fireworks) and establish DOT-approved fireworks certification agencies that will provide an alternative to the approval process for Division 1.4G consumer fireworks. PHMSA is also proposing to revise procedural regulations pertaining to certification agencies. These proposed actions, if adopted, will clarify regulations with respect to PHMSA's fireworks approval process and provide regulatory flexibility in seeking authorization for the transportation of Division 1.4G consumer fireworks.
