DOT PHMSA Posts Changes to Hazmat Regulations
DOT updates its hazmat shipping rules from time to time in response to petitions received from industry stakeholders like professional organizations and hazmat carriers. Hazmat shippers and carriers should take a look at the full list of updates, which covers about two full pages in today’s Federal Register.
For Lion Members, a Member Bulletin is on the way that details the major revisions made to the hazmat rules today. To learn more about Membership, visit Lion.com/Membership.
2 DGAC Petitions Addressed in Today’s PHMSA HMR UpdateTwo petitions made by the Dangerous Goods Advisory Council (DGAC) are addressed in today’s rulemaking.
DGAC petitioned PHMSA to make the following revisions:
- “Remove the packing group PG II designation for certain organic peroxides, self-reactive substances, and explosives in the 172.101 Hazardous Materials Table.”
- “Require that emergency response telephone numbers be displayed on shipping papers numerically. (49 CFR 172.604)”*
These new 49 CFR hazmat rules take effect July 5, 2016.
Hazmat Shipper Workshops Coming Up
Today’s rulemaking is just the latest chapter in a constantly changing framework of requirements and restrictions for hazmat shipments. Be confident you know what it takes to keep your shipments in compliance, and stay up-to-speed with the latest rules. Designed to satisfy US DOT’s three-year training requirement for hazmat employees, the Hazardous Materials Transportation Certification Workshop is trusted by shippers nationwide.
In June, a full-time Lion instructor will help shippers meet DOT mandates and learn the latest rules with hazmat workshops in Cleveland, Houston, Rochester, Pittsburgh, Dallas, Detroit, Cincinnati, and Columbus!

I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
The instructor kept the class engaged and made learning fun. There was a lot of information to cover but time flew by. I will definitely use Lion in the future!
Hazmat Shipping Professional
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
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
Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
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.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
This is the best RCRA training I've experienced! I will be visiting Lion training again.

This training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
