Hazardous Materials: Requirements for the Storage of Explosives During Transportation
Document Number: E8-15119
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2008-07-03
Agency: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
PHMSA is concerned that current requirements may not adequately address the risks associated with the storage of explosives while they are in transportation. On November 16, 2005, we published an advance notice of proposed rulemaking to solicit comments concerning measures to reduce those risks. The comment period closed February 14, 2006. To ensure that our stakeholders are fully aware of the risks we are addressing and given sufficient opportunity to comment, this ANPRM re-opens the comment period, summarizes the comments already in the docket, and announces a public meeting.
