PHMSA Rule Making On DOT Cylinders

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has proposed amendments to the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) to revise certain requirements applicable to the manufacture, use, and requalification of DOT specification cylinders. PHMSA issued an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) in response to petitions for rulemaking submitted by the regulated community and a review of the regulations applicable to compressed gas cylinders.
PHMSA is not proposing specific amendments to the HMR; rather, the agency is seeking comment on the issues discussed in the ANPRM. The ANPRM focuses on specific petitions for rulemaking and special permits, however, PHMSA will accept comments on the HMR applicable to compressed gas cylinders. Comments must be received by August 27, 2012.
