Hazmat Registrations Are Due by June 30th

Posted on 4/16/2013 by Kathleen Caton

Department of Transportation hazmat registrations for the 2013-2014 year are due by June 30! Any business that will offer even one placarded hazmat shipment this year must register with the DOT.
 
Registrations must be updated annually, and the registration period runs from July 1st to June 30th of the following year. Your registration tells the DOT who you are and what kinds of hazmat shipments you will offer or carry during the year. Hazmat registrations must be filed on DOT Form F5800.2 and can be completed through the mail or online.
 
There are a number of requirements for who must register with the DOT. With few exceptions, you must register your business if you ship or carry the following:
 
  • A highway route-controlled quantity of radioactive (Class 7) material;
  • More than 25 kg (55 pounds) of a high explosives (Division 1.1, 1.2, or 1.3);
  • More than 1 L (1.06 quarts) per package of extremely toxic by inhalation materials (Hazard Zone A);
  • Any shipment of hazmat in bulk packagings having a capacity equal to or greater than 13,248 L (3,500 gallons) for liquids/gases or 13.24 cubic meters (468 cubic feet) for solids;
  • Any shipment in non-bulk packagings with a total gross weight of 2,268 kg (5,000 pounds) or more; and
  • Any other shipment of hazmat that requires placards.
Government agencies, farmers, and certain foreign entities are partially exempt from the registration process. Remember, if you ship or transport even one shipment on the registration list above, then your business must register with the DOT.

In addition to providing information about your material and operations, you must also pay a fee to the U.S. DOT as part of your registration. In addition to a $25 processing fee per registration, the annual fee is currently:
 
  • $250 for small businesses or not-for-profit organizations, and
  • $2,575 for all others.
