FMCSA Updates Hazmat Route Registry

Posted on 6/8/2020 by Lauren Scott

Last week the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) released new updates to the National Hazardous Materials Route Registry (NHMRR). The June 3, 2020 Federal Register notice revises the registry to reflect changes that were reported to FMCSA from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020.

What is the National Hazmat Route Registry?

The NHMRR is a listing of all United States road and highway designations and restrictions concerning the transport of hazardous materials by motor vehicle.

The restrictions apply to motor vehicles transporting hazardous materials in commerce for which placards are required. The regulations at 49 CFR 5112(a) and (b) also allow US DOT's Secretary to extend the route restrictions to any vehicle that transports a hazardous material in commerce.

Hazmat routes are reported by State and Tribal governments to ensure hazmat, logistics, and safety personnel can plan the safest route for hazmat transportation by highway. FMCSA published the full registry April 2015 and there have been three revisions since. The last update was made on September 24, 2019.

Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.

Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.

I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.

I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.

Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.

One of the best trainings I have ever received!
