New: Hazmat Security Plans for LNG by Rail
When PHMSA earlier this year authorized rail transport of UN 1972, “methane, refrigerated liquid” (i.e., LNG), they also required rail carriers who transport tank cars quantities of the material to comply with additional safety and security planning requirements.
The current PHMSA information collection request that covers safety and security planning is “Hazardous Materials Security Plans,” OMB Control No. 2137-0612. The changes PHMSA made here will impact rail carriers that transport tank car quantities of UN 1972.
The change will result in just 8 additional responses per year, 680 additional hours, and $41,364 in additional salary costs for rail carriers subject to the new safety and security planning requirements, PHMSA estimates.
To see the specific revisions PHMSA has planned for the information collection request, see the rule in the Federal Register.
PHMSA will accept public comments on the notice until December 16, 2020.
Who Needs a Hazmat Security Plan?Since 2003, PHMSA has required a Hazardous Materials Security Plan for shippers and transporters of hazardous materials. Today, a security plan is required for shippers and carriers that offer or transport:
- Any quantity of certain high-level hazardous materials; or
- Bulk quantities of certain hazardous materials in a single package (e.g., a cargo tank); or
- Placarded loads of certain hazardous materials.

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.
We have a very busy work schedule and using Lion enables us to take the course at our own time. It makes it easy for me to schedule my employees' training.

The instructor was very very informative, helpful, understandable and pleasant. This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry.
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
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.
Best course instructor I've ever had. Funny, relatable, engaging; made it interesting and challenged us as the professionals we are.
