Hazardous Materials: Notice of Action on Special Permits
Hazmat special permits are used for a variety of reasons, and typically provide some level of relief or variance to the requirements of DOT’s Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR).
Typical hazmat special permit applications are requests to:
- Modify or expand the scope of an existing special permit;
- Authorize the use of alternative packaging or packaging orientation for hazardous materials;
- Allow for hazmat to be shipped or transported in ways otherwise prohibited; and more.

PHMSA's Effort to Incorporate Hazmat Special Permits into the HMRPeriodically, PHMSA reviews existing hazmat special permits and selects those with a proven safety record for incorporation into the HMR. Incorporating hazmat special permits into the 49 CFR regulations gives all shippers access to the flexibility of using the permit without the paperwork burden of applying or renewing special permit requests.
In January 2016, PHMSA incorporated 96 hazmat special permits into the text of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR). For information on the hazmat special permits added to the HMR, read: PHMSA Adds 96 Special Permits to the HMR.
According to the Fall 2019 Unified Regulatory Agenda, PHMSA plans to incorporate more hazmat special permits into the HMR soon.

The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
I can't say enough how pleased I was with this course! Everything finally makes sense.
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
