Hazmat Shipping News

Posted on 1/13/2012 by James Griffin

Do you ship dangerous goods? Then here’s a roundup of recent new and articles that may interest you.
 
From Dangerous Goods International, a report from Chongqing that no Dangerous Goods will be allowed into or out of China from now on. Some of you may remember that similiar restrictions were put in place during the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Other reports indicate that these restrictions may be in place for the next month to increase safety during Chinese New Year holiday season. If you ship dangerous goods to, or rely on shipments from China, you may want to contact your overseas counterpartst to investigate what effect this may have on your supply chain.
 
From the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Regulatory Information Portal, the January 2012 report on significant rulemakings under development. This is the first real news we have seen in a while on lithium battery regulation. According to this report, PHMSA has already finished a new set of proposed changes for lithium batteries and sent it to the Secretary of Transportation for review. If the Secretary approves, the proposed new rules will go to the White House Office of management and Budget for further review. Asssuming the Secretary and the OMB approve the proposal could be in the Federal Register as early as May 2012.
