RSPA proposes new hazmat security rules
Jun 1, 2002 12:00 PM
The Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA) is proposing new requirements to enhance security of hazardous materials transportation. Proposals include a requirement for motor carriers registered with the agency to maintain a copy of their current registration certificate on each motor vehicle.
The agency is also proposing that shipping papers include the name and address of the consignor and consignee and the shipper's Department of Transportation Hazmat Registration number, if applicable. In addition, RSPA plans to require shippers and carriers of certain highly hazardous materials to develop and implement security plans and to assure that their employee training includes a security component.
Comments on the proposal should be submitted by June 3, 2002, to the Department of Transportation, Room PL-401, 400 Seventh St SW, Washington DC 20590-0001. Comments should identify Docket #RSPA-02-12064 (HM-232) and be submitted in two copies.
