Notice of Applications to Modify Special Permits

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 HMR

Periodically, 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.
