DOT Publishes Clarification to HM-218F Rule

Posted on 12/30/2011 by Joel Gregier

PHMSA published a rule in Wednesday’s Federal Register (December 28, 2011). It was meant to amend and clarify the July 20, 2011 HM-218F rulemaking. According to PHMSA, “…[T]he July 20, 2011 final rule [was meant to] promote safer transportation practices; eliminate unnecessary regulatory requirements; finalize outstanding petitions for rulemaking; facilitate international commerce; and simplify the regulations. This final rule corrects errors in the pictorial display of labels, eliminates references to transitional provisions that were previously removed from the HMR, clarifies shipping paper amendments, corrects an editorial error, and extends the effective date of certain shipping paper amendments adopted in the July 20, 2011 final rule.”

Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
