Applications for New 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.

Adding Hazmat Special Permits to 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.

I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
The instructor was very patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.
Material Control Superintendent
Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
These are the best classes I attend each year. I always take something away and implement improvements at my sites.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided pertinent information above and beyond the questions that were asked.
I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
Hazardous Waste Technician
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
