PHMSA Extends Enforcement Discretion for Hazmat Cylinders

Posted on 1/21/2022 by Roger Marks

Some shippers of medical and industrial gases are still struggling to find cylinders to fill and ship.

To ease this supply chain bottleneck, PHMSA will continue to allow shippers to offer Division 2.2 hazardous materials (non-flammable gases) in cylinders that are no more than 12 months overdue for periodic requalification, provided that the cylinder meets all other requirements of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR).  

PHMSA alerted stakeholders recently that they will extend their enforcement discretion for cylinders until May 16, 2022.

PHMSA issued the policy in April 2020 in response to unprecedented supply chain pressures and uncertainty during the first weeks of the COVID-19 pandemic. The enforcement discretion has been extended several times since (See the April 2020 Notice).

Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.

My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.

Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation

This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!

The instructor was very engaging and helped less experienced people understand the concepts.

Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.

Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!
