New Hazmat Special Permit Applications
- Modify permits to add materials, packaging types, product designs, or approved carriers.
- Authorize the transportation in commerce of hazardous materials for about 2,400 feet without proper hazard communication.
- Harmonize special permits with revised requirements in DOT’s HM-215N rulemaking.
PHMSA granted eight hazmat special permits, including one “to authorize the transportation of cargo tanks manufactured after August 31, 1995 for which the Manufacturer’s Certificate of Compliance is missing” and another “to authorize the transportation of heat pipes containing anhydrous ammonia by cargo-only aircraft.”

More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
The instructor made the class very enjoyable and catered to the needs of our group.
I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.
