PHMSA Proposes 19 Updates to Hazmat Regulations
Need a course to meet DOT’s 3-year hazmat training mandate at 49 CFR 172.704? Find convenient, effective online hazmat training to prepare, offer, and document highway shipments with confidence.
The changes proposed impact hazmat requirements related to rail tank cars, mobile refrigeration units, special provisions for explosives, marking of portable tanks, documents incorporated by reference in the HMR, and other hazmat shipping regulations.
Among the 19 proposed HMR updates are rule changes to:
- Prohibit after December 31, 2020 the use of rail tank cars with shells or heads constructed of non-normalized steel used for transportation of poison by inhalation (PIH) materials.
- Expand limited quantity exceptions for 114 corrosive materials to harmonize with international regulations.
- Allow for smaller proper shipping name markings (minimum 12 mm) on portable tanks with a capacity less than 1,000 gallons (3,785 liters).
- Clarify the cleaning standards for metal drums for reuse at 49 CFR 173.28(c)(1)(i).
- Allow for all waste materials to be managed in accordance with the lab pack exception at 173.12 whether or not they meet the definition of a hazardous waste per EPA or RCRA.
PHMSA will accept public comments on the proposed changes until October 15, 2019.

I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.

Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.
