Hazardous Material Shipper Fees Reduced By PHMSA

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), US DOT has announced a temporary reduction in registration fees it charges hazardous material shippers. Due to an unexpended balance that has accumulated in the Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness (HMEP) Fund, PHMSA is lowering the registration fees for registration year 2013-2014 for all persons that transport or offer for transportation in commerce certain categories and quantities of hazardous materials.

For registration year 2013-2014 the fee for a small business or not-for-profit organization is revised to be $125 (plus a $25 processing fee), and for all other businesses the fee is $1300 (plus a $25 processing fee). After the 2013-2014 registration year, the registration fees will return to 2012-2013 registration year levels. PHMSA is issuing this final rule without a prior notice of proposed rulemaking and the final rule is effective immediately.
