Revised Hazardous Materials Security Plan Requirements

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) revised 49 CFR Part 172 to modify certain aspects of the requirements for hazardous materials security plans. In consultation with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), PHMSA modified security plan requirements applicable to the commercial transportation of hazardous materials by air, rail, vessel, and highway. The final rule narrows the list of materials subject to security plan requirements and clarifies certain requirements related to security planning, training, and documentation.

This final rule is effective October 1, 2010. It has a voluntary compliance date of April 8, 2010.
