                               EXPLANATION

    The Code of Federal Regulations is a codification of the general and 
permanent rules published in the Federal Register by the Executive 
departments and agencies of the Federal Government. The Code is divided 
into 50 titles which represent broad areas subject to Federal 
regulation. Each title is divided into chapters which usually bear the 
name of the issuing agency. Each chapter is further subdivided into 
parts covering specific regulatory areas.
    Each volume of the Code is revised at least once each calendar year 
and issued on a quarterly basis approximately as follows:

Title 1 through Title 16.................................as of January 1
Title 17 through Title 27..................................as of April 1
Title 28 through Title 41...................................as of July 1
Title 42 through Title 50................................as of October 1

    The appropriate revision date is printed on the cover of each 
volume.

LEGAL STATUS

    The contents of the Federal Register are required to be judicially 
noticed (44 U.S.C. 1507). The Code of Federal Regulations is prima facie 
evidence of the text of the original documents (44 U.S.C. 1510).

HOW TO USE THE CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS

    The Code of Federal Regulations is kept up to date by the individual 
issues of the Federal Register. These two publications must be used 
together to determine the latest version of any given rule.
    To determine whether a Code volume has been amended since its 
revision date (in this case, October 1, 2012), consult the ``List of CFR 
Sections Affected (LSA),'' which is issued monthly, and the ``Cumulative 
List of Parts Affected,'' which appears in the Reader Aids section of 
the daily Federal Register. These two lists will identify the Federal 
Register page number of the latest amendment of any given rule.

EFFECTIVE AND EXPIRATION DATES

    Each volume of the Code contains amendments published in the Federal 
Register since the last revision of that volume of the Code. Source 
citations for the regulations are referred to by volume number and page 
number of the Federal Register and date of publication. Publication 
dates and effective dates are usually not the same and care must be 
exercised by the user in determining the actual effective date. In 
instances where the effective date is beyond the cut-off date for the 
Code a note has been inserted to reflect the future effective date. In 
those instances where a regulation published in the Federal Register 
states a date certain for expiration, an appropriate note will be 
inserted following the text.

OMB CONTROL NUMBERS

    The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980 (Pub. L. 96-511) requires 
Federal agencies to display an OMB control number with their information 
collection request.

[[Page vi]]

Many agencies have begun publishing numerous OMB control numbers as 
amendments to existing regulations in the CFR. These OMB numbers are 
placed as close as possible to the applicable recordkeeping or reporting 
requirements.

OBSOLETE PROVISIONS

    Provisions that become obsolete before the revision date stated on 
the cover of each volume are not carried. Code users may find the text 
of provisions in effect on a given date in the past by using the 
appropriate numerical list of sections affected. For the period before 
January 1, 2001, consult either the List of CFR Sections Affected, 1949-
1963, 1964-1972, 1973-1985, or 1986-2000, published in eleven separate 
volumes. For the period beginning January 1, 2001, a ``List of CFR 
Sections Affected'' is published at the end of each CFR volume.

``[RESERVED]'' TERMINOLOGY

    The term ``[Reserved]'' is used as a place holder within the Code of 
Federal Regulations. An agency may add regulatory information at a 
``[Reserved]'' location at any time. Occasionally ``[Reserved]'' is used 
editorially to indicate that a portion of the CFR was left vacant and 
not accidentally dropped due to a printing or computer error.

INCORPORATION BY REFERENCE

    What is incorporation by reference? Incorporation by reference was 
established by statute and allows Federal agencies to meet the 
requirement to publish regulations in the Federal Register by referring 
to materials already published elsewhere. For an incorporation to be 
valid, the Director of the Federal Register must approve it. The legal 
effect of incorporation by reference is that the material is treated as 
if it were published in full in the Federal Register (5 U.S.C. 552(a)). 
This material, like any other properly issued regulation, has the force 
of law.
    What is a proper incorporation by reference? The Director of the 
Federal Register will approve an incorporation by reference only when 
the requirements of 1 CFR part 51 are met. Some of the elements on which 
approval is based are:
    (a) The incorporation will substantially reduce the volume of 
material published in the Federal Register.
    (b) The matter incorporated is in fact available to the extent 
necessary to afford fairness and uniformity in the administrative 
process.
    (c) The incorporating document is drafted and submitted for 
publication in accordance with 1 CFR part 51.
    What if the material incorporated by reference cannot be found? If 
you have any problem locating or obtaining a copy of material listed as 
an approved incorporation by reference, please contact the agency that 
issued the regulation containing that incorporation. If, after 
contacting the agency, you find the material is not available, please 
notify the Director of the Federal Register, National Archives and 
Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001, 
or call 202-741-6010.

CFR INDEXES AND TABULAR GUIDES

    A subject index to the Code of Federal Regulations is contained in a 
separate volume, revised annually as of January 1, entitled CFR Index 
and Finding Aids. This volume contains the Parallel Table of Authorities 
and Rules. A list of CFR titles, chapters, subchapters, and parts and an 
alphabetical list of agencies publishing in the CFR are also included in 
this volume.
    An index to the text of ``Title 3--The President'' is carried within 
that volume.

[[Page vii]]

    The Federal Register Index is issued monthly in cumulative form. 
This index is based on a consolidation of the ``Contents'' entries in 
the daily Federal Register.
    A List of CFR Sections Affected (LSA) is published monthly, keyed to 
the revision dates of the 50 CFR titles.

REPUBLICATION OF MATERIAL

    There are no restrictions on the republication of material appearing 
in the Code of Federal Regulations.

                          Subpart A_Definitions



Sec. 105.5  Definitions.

    (a) This part contains the definitions for certain words and phrases 
used throughout this subchapter (49 CFR parts 105 through 110). At the 
beginning of each subpart, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety 
Administration (``PHMSA'' or ``we'') will identify the defined terms 
that are used within the subpart--by listing them--and refer the reader 
to the definitions in this part. This way, readers will know that PHMSA 
has given a term a precise meaning and will know where to look for it.
    (b) Terms used in this part are defined as follows:
    Associate Administrator means Associate Administrator for Hazardous 
Materials Safety, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety 
Administration.
    Approval means written consent, including a competent authority 
approval, from the Associate Administrator or other designated 
Department official, to perform a function that requires prior consent 
under subchapter C of this chapter (49 CFR parts 171 through 180).
    Competent Authority means a national agency that is responsible, 
under its national law, for the control or regulation of some aspect of 
hazardous materials (dangerous goods) transportation. Another term for 
Competent Authority is ``Appropriate authority'' which is used in the 
International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) Technical 
Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air. The 
Associate Administrator is the United States Competent Authority for 
purposes of 49 CFR part 107.
    Competent Authority Approval means an approval by the competent 
authority that is required under an international standard (for example, 
the ICAO Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous 
Goods by Air and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code). Any 
of the following may be considered a competent authority approval if it 
satisfies the requirement of an international standard:
    (1) A specific regulation in subchapter A or C of this chapter.
    (2) A special permit or approval issued under subchapter A or C of 
this chapter.
    (3) A separate document issued to one or more persons by the 
Associate Administrator.
    Federal hazardous material transportation law means 49 U.S.C. 5101 
et seq.
    File or Filed means received by the appropriate PHMSA or other 
designated office within the time specified in a regulation or 
rulemaking document.

[[Page 8]]

    Hazardous material means a substance or material that the Secretary 
of Transportation has determined is capable of posing an unreasonable 
risk to health, safety, and property when transported in commerce, and 
has designated as hazardous under section 5103 of Federal hazardous 
materials transportation law (49 U.S.C. 5103). The term includes 
hazardous substances, hazardous wastes, marine pollutants, elevated 
temperature materials, materials designated as hazardous in the 
Hazardous Materials Table (see 49 CFR 172.101), and materials that meet 
the defining criteria for hazard classes and divisions in part 173 of 
subchapter C of this chapter.
    Hazardous Materials Regulations or HMR means the regulations at 49 
CFR parts 171 through 180.
    Indian tribe has the same meaning given that term in section 4 of 
the Indian Self-Determination and Education Assistance Act (25 U.S.C. 
450b).
    Person means an individual, firm, copartnership, corporation, 
company, association, or joint-stock association (including any trustee, 
receiver, assignee, or similar representative); or a government or 
Indian tribe (or an agency or instrumentality of any government or 
Indian tribe) that transports a hazardous material to further a 
commercial enterprise or offers a hazardous material for transportation 
in commerce. Person does not include the following:
    (1) The United States Postal Service.
    (2) Any agency or instrumentality of the Federal government, for the 
purposes of 49 U.S.C. 5123 (civil penalties) and 5124 (criminal 
penalties).
    (3) Any government or Indian tribe (or an agency or instrumentality 
of any government or Indian tribe) that transports hazardous material 
for a governmental purpose.
    Political subdivision means a municipality; a public agency or other 
instrumentality of one or more States, municipalities, or other 
political body of a State; or a public corporation, board, or commission 
established under the laws of one or more States.
    Preemption determination means an administrative decision by the 
Associate Administrator that Federal hazardous materials law does or 
does not void a specific State, political subdivision, or Indian tribe 
requirement.
    Regulations issued under Federal hazardous material transportation 
law include this subchapter A (parts 105-110) and subchapter C (parts 
171-180) of this chapter, certain regulations in chapter I (United 
States Coast Guard) of title 46, Code of Federal Regulations, and in 
chapters III (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) and XII 
(Transportation Security Administration) of subtitle B of this title, as 
indicated by the authority citations therein.
    Special permit means a document issued by the Associate 
Administrator under the authority of 49 U.S.C. 5117 permitting a person 
to perform a function that is not otherwise permitted under subchapter A 
or C of this chapter, or other regulations issued under 49 U.S.C. 5101 
et seq. (e.g., Federal Motor Carrier Safety routing requirements). The 
terms ``special permit'' and ``exemption'' have the same meaning for 
purposes of subchapter A or C of this chapter or other regulations 
issued under 49 U.S.C. 5101 through 5127. An exemption issued prior to 
October 1, 2005 remains valid until it is past its expiration date, 
terminated by the Associate Administrator, or is issued as a special 
permit, whichever occurs first.
    State means a State of the United States, the District of Columbia, 
the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Commonwealth of the Northern 
Mariana Islands, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, or any other 
territory or possession of the United States designated by the 
Secretary.
    Transports or Transportation means the movement of property and 
loading, unloading, or storage incidental to the movement.
    Waiver of Preemption means a decision by the Associate Administrator 
to forego preemption of a non-Federal requirement--that is, to allow a 
State, political subdivision or Indian tribe requirement to remain in 
effect. The non-Federal requirement must provide at least as much public 
protection as the Federal hazardous materials transportation law and the 
regulations

issued under Federal hazardous materials transportation law, and may not 
unreasonably burden commerce.

                                Subpoenas



Sec. 105.45  Issuing a subpoena.

    (a) Subpoenas explained. A subpoena is a document that may require 
you to attend a proceeding, produce documents or other physical evidence 
in your possession or control, or both. PHMSA may issue a subpoena 
either on its initiative or at the request of someone participating in a 
proceeding. Anyone who requests that PHMSA issue a subpoena must show 
that the subpoena seeks information that will materially advance the 
proceeding.
    (b) Attendance and mileage expenses. (1) If you receive a subpoena 
to attend a proceeding under this part, you may receive money to cover 
attendance and mileage expenses. The attendance and mileage fees will be 
the same as those paid to a witness in a proceeding in the district 
courts of the United States.
    (2) If PHMSA issues a subpoena to you based upon a request, the 
requester must serve a copy of the original subpoena on you, as required 
in Sec. 105.50. The requester must also include attendance and mileage 
fees with the subpoena unless the requester asks PHMSA to pay the 
attendance and mileage fees because of demonstrated financial hardship 
and PHMSA agrees to do so.
    (3) If PHMSA issues a subpoena at the request of an officer or 
agency of the Federal government, the officer or agency is not required 
to include attendance and mileage fees when serving the subpoena. The 
officer or agency must pay the fees before you leave the hearing at 
which you testify.



Sec. 105.50  Serving a subpoena.

    (a) Personal service. Anyone who is not an interested party and who 
is at least 18 years of age may serve you with a subpoena and fees by 
handing the subpoena and fees to you, by leaving them at your office 
with the individual in charge, or by leaving them at your house with 
someone who lives there and is capable of making sure that you receive 
them. If PHMSA issues a subpoena to an entity, rather than an 
individual, personal service is made by delivering the subpoena and fees 
to the entity's registered agent for service of process or to any 
officer, director or agent in charge of any of the entity's offices.
    (b) Service by mail. You may be served with a copy of a subpoena and 
fees by certified or registered mail at your last known address. Service 
of a subpoena and fees may also be made by registered or certified mail 
to your agent for service of process or any of your representatives at 
that person's last known address.
    (c) Other methods. You may be served with a copy of a subpoena by 
any method where you receive actual notice of the subpoena and receive 
the fees before leaving the hearing at which you testify.
    (d) Filing after service. After service is complete, the individual 
who served a copy of a subpoena and fees must file the original subpoena 
and a certificate of service with the PHMSA official who is responsible 
for conducting the hearing.



Sec. 105.55  Refusal to obey a subpoena.

    (a) Quashing or modifying a subpoena. If you receive a subpoena, you 
can ask PHMSA to overturn (``quash'') or modify the subpoena within 10 
days after the subpoena is served on you. Your request must briefly 
explain the reasons you are asking for the subpoena to be quashed or 
modified. PHMSA may then do the following:
    (1) Deny your request.
    (2) Quash or modify the subpoena.
    (3) Grant your request on the condition that you satisfy certain 
specified requirements.
    (b) Failure to obey. If you disobey a subpoena, PHMSA may ask the 
Attorney General to seek help from the

[[Page 13]]

United States District Court for the appropriate District to compel you, 
after notice, to appear before PHMSA and give testimony, produce 
subpoenaed documents or physical evidence, or both.

                  Subpart A_PHMSA Rulemaking Documents



Sec. 106.5  Defined terms used in this subpart.

    The following defined terms (see part 105, subpart A, of this 
subchapter) appear in this subpart: File; Person; State.



Sec. 106.10  Process for issuing rules.

    (a) PHMSA (``we'') uses informal rulemaking procedures under the 
Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553) to add, amend, or delete 
regulations. To propose or adopt changes to a regulation, PHMSA may 
issue one or more of the following documents. We publish the following 
rulemaking documents in the Federal Register unless we name and 
personally serve a copy of a rule on every person subject to it:
    (1) An advance notice of proposed rulemaking.
    (2) A notice of proposed rulemaking.
    (3) A final rule.
    (4) An interim final rule.
    (5) A direct final rule.
    (b) Each of the rulemaking documents in paragraph (a) of this 
section generally contains the following information:
    (1) The topic involved in the rulemaking document.
    (2) PHMSA's legal authority for issuing the rulemaking document.
    (3) How interested persons may participate in the rulemaking 
proceeding (for example, by filing written comments or making oral 
presentations).
    (4) Whom to call if you have questions about the rulemaking 
document.
    (5) The date, time, and place of any public meetings being held to 
discuss the rulemaking document.
    (6) The docket number and regulation identifier number (RIN) for the 
rulemaking proceeding.

[67 FR 42954, June 25, 2002, as amended at 70 FR 56088, Sept. 23, 2005]



Sec. 106.15  Advance notice of proposed rulemaking.

    An advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPRM) tells the public 
that

[[Page 14]]

PHMSA is considering an area for rulemaking and requests written 
comments on the appropriate scope of the rulemaking or on specific 
topics. An advance notice of proposed rulemaking may or may not include 
the text of potential changes to a regulation.



Sec. 106.20  Notice of proposed rulemaking.

    A notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) contains PHMSA's specific 
proposed regulatory changes for public comment and contains supporting 
information. It generally includes proposed regulatory text.



Sec. 106.25  Revising regulations without first issuing an ANPRM or NPRM.

    PHMSA may add, amend, or delete regulations without first issuing an 
ANPRM or NPRM in the following situations:
    (a) We may go directly to a final rule or interim final rule if, for 
good cause, we find that a notice of proposed rulemaking is 
impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public interest. We must 
place that finding and a brief statement of the reasons for it in the 
final rule or interim final rule.
    (b) We may issue a direct final rule (see Sec. 106.40).



Sec. 106.30  Final rule.

    A final rule sets out new regulatory requirements and their 
effective date. A final rule will also identify issues raised by 
commenters in response to the notice of proposed rulemaking and give the 
agency's response.



Sec. 106.35  Interim final rule.

    An interim final rule is issued without first issuing a notice of 
proposed rulemaking and accepting public comments and sets out new 
regulatory requirements and their effective date. PHMSA may issue an 
interim final rule if it finds, for good cause, that notice and public 
procedure are impracticable, unnecessary, or contrary to the public 
interest. PHMSA will clearly set out this finding in the interim final 
rule. After receiving and reviewing public comments, as well as any 
other relevant documents, PHMSA may revise the interim final rule and 
then issue a final rule.



Sec. 106.40  Direct final rule.

    A direct final rule makes regulatory changes and states that the 
regulatory changes will take effect on a specified date unless PHMSA 
receives an adverse comment or notice of intent to file an adverse 
comment within the comment period--generally 60 days after the direct 
final rule is published in the Federal Register.
    (a) Actions taken by direct final rule. We may use direct final 
rulemaking procedures to issue rules that do any of the following:
    (1) Make minor substantive changes to regulations.
    (2) Incorporate by reference the latest edition of technical or 
industry standards.
    (3) Extend compliance dates.
    (4) Make noncontroversial changes to regulations. We must determine 
and publish a finding that use of direct final rulemaking, in this 
situation, is in the public interest and unlikely to result in adverse 
comment.
    (b) Adverse comment. An adverse comment explains why a rule would be 
inappropriate, or would be ineffective or unacceptable without a change. 
It may challenge the rule's underlying premise or approach. Under the 
direct final rule process, we do not consider the following types of 
comments to be adverse:
    (1) A comment recommending another rule change, in addition to the 
change in the direct final rule at issue, unless the commenter states 
why the direct final rule would be ineffective without the change.
    (2) A frivolous or irrelevant comment.
    (c) Confirmation of effective date. We will publish a confirmation 
document in the Federal Register, generally within 15 days after the 
comment period closes, if we have not received an adverse comment or 
notice of intent to file an adverse comment. The confirmation document 
tells the public the effective date of the rule--either the date stated 
in the direct final rule or at least 30 days after the publication date 
of the confirmation document, whichever is later.
    (d) Withdrawing a direct final rule. (1) If we receive an adverse 
comment or

[[Page 15]]

notice of intent to file an adverse comment, we will publish a document 
in the Federal Register before the effective date of the direct final 
rule advising the public and withdrawing the direct final rule in whole 
or in part.
    (2) If we withdraw a direct final rule because of an adverse 
comment, we may incorporate the adverse comment into a later direct 
final rule or may publish a notice of proposed rulemaking.
    (e) Appeal. You may appeal PHMSA's issuance of a direct final rule 
(see Sec. 106.115) only if you have previously filed written comments 
(see Sec. 106.60) to the direct final rule.



Sec. 106.45  Tracking rulemaking actions.

    The following identifying numbers allow you to track PHMSA's 
rulemaking activities:
    (a) Docket number. We assign an identifying number, called a docket 
number, to each rulemaking proceeding. Each rulemaking document that 
PHMSA issues in a particular rulemaking proceeding will display the same 
docket number. This number allows you to do the following:
    (1) Associate related documents that appear in the Federal Register.
    (2) Search the DOT Docket Management System (``DMS'') for 
information on particular rulemaking proceedings--including notices of 
proposed rulemaking, public comments, petitions for rulemaking, appeals, 
records of additional rulemaking proceedings and final rules. There are 
two ways you can search the DMS:
    (i) Visit the public docket room and review and copy any docketed 
materials during regular business hours. The DOT Docket Management 
System is located at the U.S. Department of Transportation, West 
Building Ground Floor, Room W12-140, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., 
Washington, DC 20590-0001.
    (ii) View and download docketed materials through the Internet at 
http://www.regulations.gov.
    (b) Regulation identifier number. The Department of Transportation 
publishes a semiannual agenda of all current and projected Department of 
Transportation rulemakings, reviews of existing regulations, and 
completed actions. This semiannual agenda appears in the Unified Agenda 
of Federal Regulations that is published in the Federal Register in 
April and October of each year. The semiannual agenda tells the public 
about the Department's--including PHMSA's--regulatory activities. The 
Department assigns a regulation identifier number (RIN) to each 
individual rulemaking proceeding in the semiannual agenda. This number 
appears on all rulemaking documents published in the Federal Register 
and makes it easy for you to track those rulemaking proceedings in both 
the Federal Register and the semiannual regulatory agenda itself, as 
well as to locate all documents in the Docket Management System 
pertaining to a particular rulemaking.

rulemaking. (1) We may consolidate your appeal with other appeals of the

proceedings and an opportunity to comment.
    (4) PHMSA will notify you, in writing, of the action on your appeal

of its decision on your petition for rulemaking. If we do not issue a

Sec. 107.111  Withdrawal.

    An application may be withdrawn at any time before a decision to 
grant or deny it is made. Withdrawal of an application does not 
authorize the removal of any related records from the PHMSA dockets or 
files. Applications that are eligible for confidential treatment under 
Sec. 105.30 will remain confidential after the application is 
withdrawn. The duration of this confidential treatment for trade secrets 
and commercial or financial information is indefinite, unless the party 
requesting the confidential treatment of the materials notifies the 
Associate Administrator that the confidential treatment is no longer 
required.



Sec. 107.113  Application processing and evaluation.

    (a) The Associate Administrator reviews an application for a special 
permit, modification of a special permit, party to a special permit, or 
renewal of a special permit to determine if it is complete and conforms 
with the requirements of this subpart. This determination will be made 
within 30 days of receipt of the application for a special permit, 
modification of a special permit, or party to a special permit, and 
within 15 days of receipt of an application for renewal of a special 
permit. If an application is determined to be incomplete, the applicant 
is informed of the deficiency.
    (b) An application, that is not a renewal, party to, or emergency 
special permit application, and is determined to be complete is 
docketed. Notice of the application is published in the Federal 
Register, and an opportunity for public comment is provided. All 
comments received during the comment period are considered before final 
action is taken on the application.
    (c) No public hearing or other formal proceeding is required under 
this subpart before the disposition of an application. Unless emergency 
processing under Sec. 107.117 is requested and granted, applications 
are usually processed in the order in which they are filed.
    (d) During the processing and evaluation of an application, the 
Associate Administrator may conduct an on-site review or request 
additional information from the applicant. A failure to cooperate with 
an on-site review may result in the application being deemed incomplete 
and subsequently being denied. If the applicant does not respond to a 
written or electronic request for additional information within 30 days 
of the date the request was received, the application may be deemed 
incomplete and denied. However, if the applicant responds in writing or 
by electronic means within the 30-day period requesting an additional 30 
days within which it will gather the requested information, the 
Associate Administrator may grant the 30-day extension.
    (e) The Associate Administrator may grant or deny an application, in 
whole or in part. In the Associate Administrator's discretion, an 
application may be granted subject to provisions that are appropriate to 
protect health, safety or property. The Associate Administrator may 
impose additional provisions not specified in the application or remove 
conditions in the application that are unnecessary.
    (f) The Associate Administrator may grant an application on finding 
that--
    (1) The application complies with this subpart;
    (2) The application demonstrates that the proposed alternative will 
achieve a level of safety that:

[[Page 27]]

    (i) Is at least equal to that required by the regulation from which 
the special permit is sought, or
    (ii) If the regulations do not establish a level of safety, is 
consistent with the public interest and adequately will protect against 
the risks to life and property inherent in the transportation of 
hazardous materials in commerce;
    (3) The application states all material facts, and contains no 
materially false or materially misleading statement;
    (4) The applicant meets the qualifications required by applicable 
regulations; and
    (5) The applicant is fit to conduct the activity authorized by the 
special permit. This assessment may be based on information in the 
application, prior compliance history of the applicant, and other 
information available to the Associate Administrator.
    (g) An applicant is notified in writing or by electronic means 
whether the application is granted or denied. A denial contains a brief 
statement of reasons.
    (h) The initial special permit terminates according to its terms or, 
if not otherwise specified, 24 months from the date of issuance. A 
subsequent renewal of a special permit terminates according to its terms 
or, if not otherwise specified, 48 months after the date of issuance. A 
grant of party status to a special permit, unless otherwise stated, 
terminates on the date that the special permit expires.
    (i) The Associate Administrator, on determining that an application 
concerns a matter of general applicability and future effect and should 
be the subject of rulemaking, may initiate rulemaking under part 106 of 
this chapter in addition to or instead of acting on the application.
    (j) The Associate Administrator publishes in the Federal Register a 
list of all special permit grants, denials, and modifications and all 
special permit applications withdrawn under this section.

Sec. 107.117  Emergency processing.

    (a) An application is granted emergency processing if the Associate 
Administrator, on the basis of the application and any inquiry 
undertaken, finds that--
    (1) Emergency processing is necessary to prevent significant injury 
to persons or property (other than the hazardous material to be 
transported) that could not be prevented if the application were 
processed on a routine basis; or
    (2) Emergency processing is necessary for immediate national 
security purposes or to prevent significant economic loss that could not 
be prevented if the application were processed on a routine basis.
    (b) Where the significant economic loss is to the applicant, or to a 
party in a contractual relationship to the applicant with respect to the 
activity to be undertaken, the Associate Administrator may deny 
emergency processing if timely application could have been made.
    (c) A request for emergency processing on the basis of potential 
economic loss must reasonably describe and estimate the potential loss.
    (d) An application submitted under this section must conform to 
Sec. 107.105 to the extent that the receiving Department official deems 
necessary to process the application. An application on an emergency 
basis must be submitted to the Department modal contact official for the 
initial mode of transportation to be utilized, as follows:
    (1) Certificate-Holding Aircraft: The Federal Aviation 
Administration Civil Aviation Security Office that serves the place 
where the flight will originate or that is responsible for the aircraft 
operator's overall aviation security program. The nearest Civil Aviation 
Security Office may be located by calling the FAA Duty Officer, 202-267-
3333 (any hour).
    (2) Noncertificate-Holding Aircraft (Those Which Operate Under 14 
CFR Part 91): The Federal Aviation Administration Civil Aviation 
Security Office that serves the place where the flight will originate. 
The nearest Civil Aviation Security Office may be located by calling the 
FAA Duty Officer, 202-267-3333 (any hour).
    (3) Motor Vehicle Transportation: Chief, Hazardous Materials 
Division,

    (e) On receipt of all information necessary to process the 
application, the receiving Department official transmits to the 
Associate Administrator, by the most rapid available means of 
communication, an evaluation as to whether an emergency exists under 
Sec. 107.117(a) and, if appropriate, recommendations as to the 
conditions to be included in the special permit. If the Associate 
Administrator determines that an emergency exists under Sec. 107.117(a) 
and that, with reference to the criteria of Sec. 107.113(f), granting 
of the application is in the public interest, the Associate 
Administrator grants the application subject to such terms as necessary 
and immediately notifies the applicant. If the Associate Administrator 
determines that an emergency does not exist or that granting of the 
application is not in the public interest, the applicant immediately is 
so notified.
    (f) A determination that an emergency does not exist is not subject 
to reconsideration under Sec. 107.123 of this part.
    (g) Within 90 days following issuance of an emergency special 
permit, the Associate Administrator will publish, in the Federal 
Register, a notice of issuance with a statement of the basis for the 
finding of emergency and the scope and duration of the special permit.

                        Preemption Determinations



Sec. 107.203  Application.

    (a) With the exception of highway routing matters covered under 49 
U.S.C. 5125(c), any person, including a State or political subdivision 
thereof or an Indian tribe, directly affected by any requirement of a 
State or political subdivision thereof or an Indian tribe, may apply to 
the Chief Counsel for a determination as to whether that requirement is 
preempted by Sec. 107.202(a), (b), or (c).
    (b) Each application filed under this section for a determination 
must:
    (1) Be submitted to the Chief Counsel:
    (i) By mail addressed to the Chief Counsel, Pipeline and Hazardous 
Materials Safety Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation, East 
Building, PHC-1, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590-0001;
    (ii) By facsimile to 202-366-7041; or
    (iii) Electronically to the Chief Counsel at 
phmsachiefcounsel@dot.gov.
    (2) Set forth the text of the State or political subdivision or 
Indian tribe requirement for which the determination is sought;
    (3) Specify each requirement of the Federal hazardous materials 
transportation law, regulations issued under the Federal hazardous

security regulations or directives issued by the Secretary of Homeland 
Security with which the applicant seeks the State or political 
subdivision or Indian tribe requirement to be compared;
    (4) Explain why the applicant believes the State or political 
subdivision or Indian tribe requirement should or should not be 
preempted under the standards of Sec. 107.202; and
    (5) State how the applicant is affected by the State or political 
subdivision or Indian tribe requirement.
    (c) The filing of an application for a determination under this 
section does not constitute grounds for noncompliance with any 
requirement of the Federal hazardous materials transportation law, 
regulations issued under the Federal hazardous material transportation 
law, or hazardous material transportation security regulations or 
directives issued by the Secretary of Homeland Security.
    (d) Once the Chief Counsel has published notice in the Federal 
Register of an application received under paragraph (a) of this section, 
no applicant for such determination may seek relief with respect to the 
same or substantially the same issue in any court until final action has 
been taken on the application or until 180 days after filing of the 
application, whichever occurs first. Nothing in Sec. 107.203(a) 
prohibits a State or political subdivision thereof or Indian tribe, or 
any other person directly affected by any requirement of a State or 
political subdivision thereof or Indian tribe, from seeking a 
determination of preemption in any court of competent jurisdiction in 
lieu of applying to the Chief Counsel under paragraph (a) of this 
section.

considers that a hearing or conference will advance his or her 
evaluation of the application.
    (b) The Chief Counsel may dismiss the application without prejudice

determination becomes a final agency action.
    (d) A determination issued under this section constitutes an 
administrative determination as to whether a particular requirement of a 
State or political subdivision or Indian tribe is preempted under the 
Federal hazardous materials transportation law. The fact that a 
determination has not been issued under this section with respect to a 
particular requirement of a State or political subdivision or Indian 
tribe carries no implication as to whether the requirement is preempted 
under the Federal hazardous materials transportation law.

in an application and utilize in his or her evaluation any relevant 
facts obtained by that investigation. The Chief Counsel may solicit and

Sec. 107.221  Determination.

    (a) After considering the application and other relevant information 
received or obtained during the proceeding, the Chief Counsel issues a 
determination.
    (b) The Chief Counsel may issue a waiver of preemption only on 
finding that the requirement of the State or political subdivision 
thereof or Indian tribe affords the public a level of safety at least 
equal to that afforded by the requirements of the Federal hazardous 
material transportation law or the regulations issued thereunder and 
does not unreasonably burden commerce. In determining if the requirement 
of the State or political subdivision thereof or Indian tribe 
unreasonably burdens commerce, the Chief Counsel considers:
    (1) The extent to which increased costs and impairment of efficiency 
result from the requirement of the State or political subdivision 
thereof or Indian tribe.
    (2) Whether the requirement of the State or political subdivision 
thereof or Indian tribe has a rational basis.
    (3) Whether the requirement of the State or political subdivision 
thereof or Indian tribe achieves its stated purpose.
    (4) Whether there is need for uniformity with regard to the subject 
concerned and if so, whether the requirement of the State or political 
subdivision thereof or Indian tribe competes or conflicts with those of 
other States or political subdivisions thereof or Indian tribes.
    (c) The determination includes a written statement setting forth 
relevant facts and legal bases and providing that any person aggrieved 
by the determination may file a petition for reconsideration with the 
Chief Counsel.
    (d) The Chief Counsel provides a copy of the determination to the 
applicant and to any other person who substantially participated in the 
proceeding or requested in comments to the docket to be notified of the 
determination. A copy of the determination is placed on file in the 
public docket. The Chief Counsel will publish the determination or 
notice of the determination in the Federal Register, at which time the 
determination becomes a final agency action.
    (e) A determination under this section constitutes an administrative 
finding of whether a particular requirement of a State or political 
subdivision thereof or Indian tribe is preempted under the Federal 
hazardous materials transportation law, or whether preemption is waived.

Sec. 107.223  Petition for reconsideration.

    (a) Any person aggrieved by a determination under Sec. 107.221 may

must be filed with the Chief Counsel, in the same manner specified for 
filing an application in Sec. 107.215(b), within 20 days of publication 
of the determination in the Federal Register.
    (b) The petition must contain a concise statement of the basis for 
seeking review, including any specific factual or legal error alleged. 
If the petition requests consideration of information that was not 
previously made available to the Chief Counsel, the petition must 
include the reasons why such information was not previously made 
available.
    (c) The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to each person 
who participated, either as an applicant or commenter, in the waiver of 
preemption proceeding, accompanied by a statement that the person may 
submit comments concerning the petition to the Chief Counsel within 20 
days. The petition filed with the Chief Counsel must contain a 
certification that the petitioner has complied with this paragraph and 
include the names and addresses of all persons to whom a copy of the 
petition was sent. Late-filed comments are considered so far as 
practicable.
    (d) The Chief Counsel will publish the decision on the petition for 
reconsideration or notice of the decision in the Federal Register, at 
which time the decision on the petition for reconsideration becomes a 
final agency action.

    (4) With concurrence of the Director, Field Operations, Pipeline and 
Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, an investigator may issue a 
subpoena for the production of documentary or other tangible evidence 
if, on the basis of information available to the investigator, the 
documents and evidence materially will advance a determination of

Sec. 107.307  General.

    (a) When the Associate Administrator and the Office of Chief Counsel 
have reason to believe that a person is knowingly engaging or has 
knowingly engaged in conduct which is a violation of the Federal 
hazardous material transportation law or any provision of this 
subchapter or subchapter C of this chapter, or any exemption, special 
permit, or order issued thereunder, for which the Associate 
Administrator or the Office of Chief Counsel exercise enforcement 
authority, they may--
    (1) Issue a warning letter, as provided in Sec. 107.309;
    (2) Initiate proceedings to assess a civil penalty, as provided in

    (4) Seek any other remedy available under the Federal hazardous 
material transportation law.
    (b) In the case of a proceeding initiated for failure to comply with 
an exemption or special permit, the allegation of a violation of a term 
or condition thereof is considered by the Associate Administrator and 
the Office of Chief Counsel to constitute an allegation that the special 
permit holder or party to the special permit is failing, or has failed 
to comply with the underlying regulations from which relief was granted 
by the special permit.

impose a civil penalty that does not exceed the proposed full penalty 
set forth in the ticket.

Sec. 107.311, the respondent may admit the alleged violations and agree 
to accept the terms of a proposed compliance order or to pay the amount 
of the preliminarily assessed civil penalty, or, if proposed in the 
notice, both.
    (b) If the respondent agrees to the terms of a proposed compliance 
order, the Chief Counsel issues a final order prescribing the remedial 
action to be taken by the respondent.
    (c) Payment of a civil penalty, when the amount of the penalty 
exceeds $10,000, must be made by wire transfer, through the Federal 
Reserve Communications System (Fedwire), to the account of the U.S. 
Treasury. Detailed instructions on making payments by wire transfer may 
be obtained from the Financial Operations Division (AMZ-120), Federal 
Aviation Administration, Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center, P.O. Box

Sec. 107.317  Informal response.

    (a) In responding to a notice of probable violation under Sec. 
107.311, the respondent may submit to the official who issued the

the allegations, the terms of a proposed compliance order, or the amount 
of the preliminarily assessed civil penalty.
    (b) The respondent may include in his informal response a request 
for a conference. Upon the request of the respondent, the conference may 
be either in person or by telephone. A request for a conference must set 
forth the issues the respondent will raise at the conference.
    (c) Upon receipt of a request for a conference under paragraph (b) 
of this section, the Chief Counsel's Office, in consultation with the 
Associate Administrator, arranges for a conference as soon as 
practicable at a time and place of mutual convenience.
    (d) The respondent's written explanations, information, and 
arguments as well as the respondent's presentation at a conference are 
considered by the Chief Counsel in reviewing the notice of probable 
violation. Based upon a review of the proceeding, the Chief Counsel may 
dismiss the notice of probable violation in whole or in part. If he does 
not dismiss it in whole, he issues an order directing compliance or 
assessing a civil penalty, or, if proposed in the notice, both.

Sec. 107.319  Request for a hearing.

    (a) In responding to a notice of probable violation under Sec. 
107.311, the respondent may request a formal administrative hearing on 
the record before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) obtained by the 
Office of the Chief Counsel.
    (b) A request for a hearing under paragraph (a) of this section 
must:
    (1) State the name and address of the respondent and of the person 
submitting the request if different from the respondent;
    (2) State which allegations of violations, if any, are admitted; and
    (3) State generally the issues to be raised by the respondent at the 
hearing. Issues not raised in the request are not barred from 
presentation at the hearing; and
    (4) Be addressed to the official who issued the notice.
    (c) After a request for a hearing that complies with the 
requirements of paragraph (b) of this section, the Chief Counsel obtains 
an ALJ to preside over the hearing and notifies the respondent of this 
fact. Upon assignment of an ALJ, further matters in the proceeding 
generally are conducted by and through the ALJ, except that the Chief 
Counsel and respondent may compromise or settle the case under Sec. 
107.327 of this subpart without order of the ALJ or voluntarily dismiss 
the case under Rule 41(a)(1) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 
without order of the ALJ; in the event of such a compromise, settlement 
or dismissal, the Chief Counsel expeditiously will notify the ALJ 
thereof.
    (d) At any time after requesting a formal administrative hearing but 
prior to the issuance of a decision and final order by the ALJ, the 
respondent may withdraw such request in writing, thereby terminating the 
jurisdication of the ALJ in the case. Such a withdrawal constitutes an 
irrevocable waiver of respondent's right to such a hearing on the facts, 
allegations, and proposed sanction presented in the notice of probable 
violation to which the request for hearing relates.

vicinity of the place where the alleged violation occurred or at a place 
convenient to the respondent. Testimony by witnesses shall be given 
under oath and the hearing shall be recorded verbatim.
    (b) Hearings are conducted in accordance with the Federal Rules of 
Evidence and Federal Rules of Civil Procedure; however, the ALJ may 
modify them as he determines necessary in the interest of a full 
development of the facts. In addition, the ALJ may:

[[Page 41]]

provisions of this subpart and permitted by law which may expedite the 
hearing or aid in the disposition of an issue raised therein.
    (c) The official who issued the notice of probable violation, or his 
representative, has the burden of proving the facts alleged therein.
    (d) The respondent may appear and be heard on his own behalf or 
through counsel of his choice. The respondent or his counsel may offer 
relevant information including testimony which he believes should be 
considered in opposition to the allegations or which may bear on the 
sanction being sought and conduct such cross-examination as may be 
required for a full disclosure of the facts.

Sec. 107.323  ALJ's decision.

    (a) After consideration of all matters of record in the proceeding, 
the ALJ shall issue an order dismissing the notice of probable violation 
in whole or in part or granting the sanction sought by the Office of 
Chief Counsel in the notice. If the ALJ does not dismiss the notice of 
probable violation in whole, he issues an order directing compliance or 
assessing a civil penalty, or, if proposed in the notice, both. The 
order includes a statement of the findings and conclusions, and the 
reasons therefore, on all material issues of fact, law, and discretion.
    (b) If, within 20 days of receipt of an order issued under paragraph 
(a) of this section, the respondent does not submit in writing his 
acceptance of the terms of an order directing compliance, or, where 
appropriate, pay a civil penalty, or file an appeal under Sec. 107.325, 
the case may be referred to the Attorney General with a request that an

Sec. 107.325  Appeals.

    (a) Hearing proceedings. A party aggrieved by an ALJ's decision and 
order issued under Sec. 107.323, may file a written appeal in 
accordance with paragraph (c) of this section with the Administrator, 
Office of the Administrator, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety 
Administration, East Building, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, 
DC 20590-0001.
    (b) Non-Hearing proceedings. A respondent aggrieved by an order 
issued under Sec. 107.317, may file a written appeal in accordance with 
paragraph (c) of this section with the Administrator, Office of the 
Administrator, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, 
East Building, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590-0001.
    (c) An appeal of an order issued under this subpart must:
    (1) Be filed within 20 days of receipt of the order by the appealing 
party; and
    (2) State with particularity the findings in the order that the 
appealing party challenges, and include all information and arguments 
pertinent thereto.
    (d) If the Administrator, PHMSA, affirms the order in whole or in 
part, the respondent must comply with the terms of the decision within 
20 days of the respondent's receipt thereof, or within the time 
prescribed in the order. If the respondent does not comply with the 
terms of the decision within 20 days of receipt, or within the time 
prescribed in the order, the case may be referred to the Attorney 
General for action to enforce the terms of the decision.

[[Page 42]]

    (e) The filing of an appeal stays the effectiveness of an order 
issued under Sec. 107.317 or Sec. 107.323. However, if the 
Administrator, PHMSA, determines that it is in the public interest, he 
may keep an order directing compliance in force pending appeal.

Sec. 107.327  Compromise and settlement.

    (a) At any time before an order issued under Sec. 107.317 or Sec. 
107.323 is referred to the Attorney General for enforcement, the 
respondent or the Office of Chief Counsel may propose a compromise as 
follows:
    (1) In civil penalty cases, the respondent or Chief Counsel may 
offer to compromise the amount of the penalty by submitting an offer for 
a specific amount to the other party. An offer of compromise by the 
respondent shall be submitted to the Chief Counsel who may, after 
consultation with the Associate Administrator, accept or reject it.
    (i) A compromise offer stays the running of any response period then 
outstanding.
    (ii) If a compromise is agreed to by the parties, the respondent is 
notified in writing. Upon receipt of payment by Office of Chief Counsel, 
the respondent is notified in writing that acceptance of payment is in 
full satisfaction of the civil penalty proposed or assessed, and Office 
of Chief Counsel closes the case with prejudice to the respondent.
    (iii) If a compromise cannot be agreed to, the respondent is 
notified in writing and is given 10 days or the amount of time remaining 
in the then outstanding response period, whichever is longer, to respond 
to whatever action was taken by the Office of Chief Counsel or the 
Administrator, PHMSA.
    (2) In compliance order cases, the respondent may propose a consent 
agreement to the Chief Counsel. If the Chief Counsel accepts the 
agreement, he issues an order in accordance with its terms. If the Chief 
Counsel rejects the agreement, he directs that the proceeding continue. 
An agreement submitted to the Chief Counsel must include:
    (i) A statement of any allegations of fact which the respondent 
challenges;
    (ii) The reasons why the terms of a compliance order or proposed 
compliance order are or would be too burdensome for the respondent, or 
why such terms are not supported by the record in the case;
    (iii) A proposed compliance order suitable for issuance by the Chief 
Counsel;
    (iv) An admission of all jurisdictional facts; and
    (v) An express waiver of further procedural steps and all right to 
seek judicial review or otherwise challenge or contest the validity of 
the order.
    (b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a)(1) of this section, the respondent 
or Office of Chief Counsel may propose to settle the case. If the Chief 
Counsel agrees to a settlement, the respondent is notified and the case 
is closed without prejudice to the respondent.

                III. Consideration of Statutory Criteria

    A. These guidelines are used by the Office of Hazardous Materials 
Safety (OHMS) in setting initial proposed penalties for hazmat 
violations. They indicate baseline amounts or ranges for probable 
violations frequently cited in enforcement reports and set forth general 
OHMS policy for considering statutory criteria.
    B. The initial baseline determination partially considers the 
nature, extent, circumstances, and gravity of the alleged violation. 
That determination then is adjusted to consider all other evidence 
concerning the nature, extent, circumstances, and gravity of the alleged 
violation; degree of culpability; history of prior violations; ability 
to pay; effect of the penalty on ability to continue to do business; and 
such other matters as justice may require (a major component of which is 
corrective action taken by a respondent to prevent a recurrence of 
similar violations). In making a penalty recommendation, the baseline or 
range may be increased or decreased on the basis of evidence pertaining 
to these factors.
    C. The following miscellaneous factors are used to implement one or 
more of the statutory assessment criteria.

           IV. Miscellaneous Factors Affecting Penalty Amounts

                          A. Corrective Action

    1. A proposed penalty is mitigated for documented corrective action 
of alleged violations taken by a respondent. Corrective action may 
occur: (1) After an inspection and before a Notice of Probable Violation 
(NOPV) is issued; (2) on receipt of an NOPV; or (3) after receipt of an 
NOPV (possibly after it is solicited by an PHMSA attorney). In general, 
corrective action may reduce a penalty up to 25%. Mitigation may be 
taken into account in the referral memo or may be recommended prior to 
issuance of an Order by PHMSA's Chief Counsel.
    2. The two primary factors in determining the penalty reduction are 
extent and timing of the corrective action. In other words, mitigation 
will be determined on the basis of how much corrective action was taken 
and when it was taken. Systemic action to prevent future violations is 
given greater consideration than action simply to remedy violations 
identified during the inspection.
    3. Mitigation is applied to individual violations. Thus, in a case 
with two violations, if corrective action for the first violation is 
more extensive than for the second, the penalty for the first will be 
mitigated more than that for the second.

                       B. Respondents That Re-Ship

    A shipper that reships materials received from another company, in 
the same packaging and without opening or altering the package, 
independently is responsible for ensuring that the shipment complies 
with Federal hazmat law, and independently may be subject to enforcement 
action if the package does not comply. Nevertheless, the reshipper is 
considered to have a lesser level of responsibility for compliance in 
those respects in which it reasonably relies on the compliance of the 
package as received. In most cases of

[[Page 52]]

this type, OHMS will discount the applicable baseline standard by about 
25%. The specific knowledge and expertise of all parties must be 
considered in discounting for reliance on a prior shipper. This discount 
is applied before any consideration of mitigation based on corrective 
action.

                C. Penalty Increases for Multiple Counts

    Under the Federal hazmat law, 49 U.S.C. 5123(a), each violation of 
the HMR and each day of a continuing violation (except for violations 
pertaining to packaging manufacture or qualification) is subject to a 
civil penalty of up to $55,000 or $110,000 for a violation occurring on 
or after January 1, 2010. Absent aggravating factors, OHMS, in its 
exercise of discretion, ordinarily will apply a single penalty for 
multiple counts or days of violation. In a number of cases, particularly 
those involving shippers, an inspector may cite two or more similar 
packaging violations for different hazardous materials. For example, the 
inspector may cite the same marking violation for two or more packages. 
OHMS usually will consider those additional violations as counts of the 
same violation and will not recommend multiples of the same baseline 
penalty. Rather, OHMS usually will recommend the baseline penalty for a 
single violation, increased by 25% for each additional violation.

                       D. Financial Considerations

    1. Mitigation is appropriate when the baseline penalty would (1) 
exceed an amount that the respondent is able to pay, or (2) have an 
adverse effect on the respondent's ability to continue in business. 
These criteria relate to a respondent's entire business, and not just 
the product line or part of its operations involved in the violation(s). 
Beyond the overall financial size of the respondent's business, the 
relevant items of information on a respondent's balance sheet include 
the current ratio (current assets to current liabilities), the nature of 
current assets, and net worth (total assets minus total liabilities).
    2. These figures are considered on a case-by-case basis. In general, 
however, a current ratio close to or below 1.0 means that the company 
may have difficulty in paying a large penalty, and may justify reduction 
of the penalty or an installment payment plan. A small amount of cash on 
hand representing limited liquidity, even with substantial other current 
assets (such as accounts receivable or inventory), may warrant a short-
term payment plan. Respondent's income statement also will be reviewed 
to determine whether a payment plan is appropriate.
    3. Many companies are able to continue in business for extended 
periods of time with a small or negative net worth, and many respondents 
have paid substantial civil penalties in installments even though net 
worth was negative. For this reason, negative net worth alone does not 
always warrant reduction of a proposed penalty or even, in the absence 
of factors discussed above, a payment plan.
    4. In general, an installment payment plan may be justified where 
reduction of a proposed penalty is not, but the appropriateness of 
either (or both) will depend on the circumstances of the case. The 
length of a payment plan should be as short as possible, but the plan 
may consider seasonal fluctuations in a company's income if the 
company's business is seasonal (e.g., swimming pool chemical sales, 
fireworks sales) or if the company has documented specific reasons for 
current non-liquidity.
    5. Evidence of financial condition is used only to decrease a 
penalty, and not to increase it.

                E. Penalty Increases for Prior Violations

    The baseline penalty presumes an absence of prior violations. If 
prior violations exist, generally they will serve to increase a proposed 
penalty. The general standards for increasing a baseline proposed 
penalty on the basis of prior violations are as follows:
    1. For each prior civil or criminal enforcement case--25% increase 
over the pre-mitigation recommended penalty.
    2. For each prior ticket--10% increase over the pre-mitigation 
recommended penalty.
    3. A baseline proposed penalty will not be increased more than 100% 
on the basis of prior violations.
    4. A case or ticket of prior violations initiated in a calendar year 
more than six years before the calendar year in which the current case 
is initiated normally will not be considered in determining a proposed 
penalty for the current violation(s).

         F. Penalty Increases for Use of Expired Special Permits

    Adjustments to the base line figures for use of expired special 
permits can be made depending on how much material has been shipped 
during the period between the expiration date and the renewal date. If 
the company previously has been found to have operated under an expired 
special permit, the penalty is normally doubled. If the company has been 
previously cited for other violations, the penalty generally will be 
increased by about 25%.

when applicable, facility are adequate to perform the requested 
functions in accordance with the criteria prescribed in subpart C of 
part 180 of this subchapter.
    (e) Expiration of RIN. Unless otherwise provided in the issuance 
letter, an approval expires five years from the date of issuance, 
provided the applicant's facility and qualifications are maintained at 
or above the level observed at the time of inspection by the independent 
inspection agency, or at the date of the certification in the 
application for approval for requalifiers only performing inspections 
made under Sec. 180.209(g) of this chapter.

person has been issued a RIN as provided in paragraph (d) of this 
section.
    (g) Each holder of a current RIN shall report in writing any change 
in its name, address, ownership, testing equipment, or management or 
personnel performing any function under this section, to the Associate 
Administrator (PHH-32) within 20 days of the change.

limited to, gaining access to records and property (including packages), 
interviewing, photocopying, photographing, and video- and audio-
recording in a reasonable manner.
    (3) Serve subpoenas for the production of documents or other 
tangible evidence if, on the basis of information available to the 
agent, the evidence is relevant to a determination of compliance with 
the Federal hazardous material transportation law, regulation, order, 
special permit, or approval prescribed or issued under the Federal 
hazardous material transportation law, or any court decree or order 
relating thereto. Service of a subpoena shall be in accordance with the 
requirements of the agent's operating administration as set forth in 14 
CFR 13.3 (Federal Aviation Administration); 49 CFR 209.7 (Federal 
Railroad Administration), 49 U.S.C. 502(d), 5121(a) (Federal Motor 
Carrier Safety Administration), and 49 CFR 105.45-105.55 (Pipeline and 
Hazardous Materials Safety Administration).



Sec. 109.5  Opening of packages.

    (a) When an agent has an objectively reasonable and articulable 
belief that a package offered for or in transportation in commerce may 
contain a hazardous material and that such a package does not otherwise 
comply with this chapter, the agent may--
    (1) Stop movement of the package in transportation and gather 
information from any person to learn the nature and contents of the 
package;
    (2) Open any overpack, outer packaging, or other component of the 
package that is not immediately adjacent to the hazardous materials 
contained in the package and examine the inner packaging(s) or packaging 
components.



Sec. 109.7  Removal from transportation.

    An agent may remove a package and related packages in a shipment or 
a freight container from transportation in commerce for up to forty-
eight (48) hours when the agent has an objectively reasonable and 
articulable belief that the packages may pose an imminent hazard. The 
agent must record this belief in writing as soon as practicable and 
provide written notification stating the reason for removal to the 
person in possession.



Sec. 109.9  Transportation for examination and analysis.

    (a) An agent may direct a package to be transported to a facility 
for examination and analysis when the agent determines that:
    (1) Further examination of the package is necessary to evaluate 
whether the package conforms to subchapter C of this chapter;
    (2) Conflicting information concerning the package exists; or
    (3) Additional investigation is not possible on the immediate 
premises.
    (b) In the event of a determination in accordance with paragraph (a) 
of this section, an agent may:

[[Page 69]]

    (1) Direct the offeror of the package, or other person responsible 
for the package, to have the package transported to a facility where the 
material may be examined and analyzed;
    (2) Direct the packaging manufacturer or tester of the packaging to 
have the package transported to a facility where the packaging may be 
tested in accordance with the HMR; or
    (3) Direct the carrier to transport the package to a facility 
capable of conducting such examination and analysis.
    (c) The 48-hour removal period provided in Sec. 109.7 may be 
extended in writing by the Administrator pending the conclusion of 
examination and analysis under this section.



Sec. 109.11  Assistance of properly qualified personnel.

    An agent may authorize properly qualified personnel to assist in the 
activities conducted under this part if the agent is not properly 
qualified to perform a function that is essential to the agent's 
exercise of authority under this part or when safety might otherwise be 
compromised by the agent's performance of such a function.



Sec. 109.13  Closing packages and safe resumption of transportation.

    (a) No imminent hazard found. If, after an agent exercises an 
authority under Sec. 109.5, the agent finds that no imminent hazard 
exists, and the package otherwise conforms to applicable requirements in 
subchapter C of this chapter, the agent will:
    (1) Assist in preparing the package for safe and prompt 
transportation, when practicable, by reclosing the package in accordance 
with the packaging manufacturer's closure instructions or other 
appropriate closure method;
    (2) Mark and certify the reclosed package to indicate that it was 
opened and reclosed in accordance with this part;
    (3) Return the package to the person from whom the agent obtained 
it, as soon as practicable; and
    (4) For a package containing a perishable hazardous material, assist 
in resuming the safe and expeditious transportation of the package as 
soon as practicable after determining that the package presents no 
imminent hazard.
    (b) Imminent hazard found. If an imminent hazard is found to exist 
after an agent exercises an authority under Sec. 109.5, the 
Administrator or his/her designee may issue an out-of-service order 
prohibiting the movement of the package until the package has been 
brought into compliance with subchapter C of this chapter. Upon receipt 
of the out-of-service order, the person in possession of, or responsible 
for, the package must remove the package from transportation until it is 
brought into compliance.
    (c) Package does not contain hazardous material. If, after an agent 
exercises an authority under Sec. 109.5, the agent finds that a package 
does not contain a hazardous material, the agent shall securely close 
the package, mark and certify the reclosed package to indicate that it 
was opened and reclosed, and return the package to transportation.
    (d) Non-compliant package. If, after an agent exercises an authority 
under Sec. 109.5, the agent finds that a package contains hazardous 
material and does not conform to requirements in subchapter C of this 
chapter, but does not present an imminent hazard, the agent will return 
the package to the person in possession of the package at the time the 
non-compliance is discovered for appropriate corrective action. A non-
compliant package may not continue in transportation until all 
identified non-compliance issues are resolved.



Sec. 109.15  Termination.

    When the facts disclosed by an investigation indicate that further 
action is not warranted under this Part at the time, the Administrator 
will close the investigation without prejudice to further investigation 
and notify the person being investigated of the decision. Nothing herein 
precludes civil enforcement action at a later time related to the 
findings of the investigation.

specified conditions of the out-of-service order have been met.
    (1) Upon receipt of an out-of-service order, the person in 
possession of, or responsible for, the package must remove the package 
from transportation until it is brought into compliance with the out-of-
service order.
    (2) A package subject to an out-of-service order may be moved from 
the place where it was found to present an imminent hazard to the 
nearest location where the package can be brought into compliance,

be deducted from the initial reimbursement in the year the advance was 
made.
    (d) To be allowable, costs must be eligible, reasonable, necessary, 
and allocable to the approved project in accordance with OMB Circular A-
87 and included in the grant award. Costs incurred prior to the award of

   Subpart A_Applicability, General Requirements, and North American 
                                Shipments



Sec. 171.1  Applicability of Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) 
to persons and functions.

    Federal hazardous materials transportation law (49 U.S.C. 5101 et 
seq.) directs the Secretary of Transportation to establish regulations 
for the safe and secure transportation of hazardous materials in 
commerce, as the Secretary considers appropriate. The Secretary is 
authorized to apply these regulations to persons who transport hazardous 
materials in commerce. In addition, the law authorizes the Secretary to 
apply these regulations to persons who cause hazardous materials to be 
transported in commerce. The law also authorizes the Secretary to apply 
these regulations to persons who manufacture or maintain a packaging or 
a component of a packaging that is represented, marked, certified, or 
sold as qualified for use in the transportation of a hazardous material 
in commerce. Federal hazardous material transportation law also applies 
to anyone who indicates by marking or other means that a hazardous 
material being transported in commerce is present in a package or 
transport conveyance when it is not, and to anyone who tampers with a 
package or transport conveyance used to transport hazardous materials in 
commerce or a required marking, label, placard, or shipping description. 
Regulations prescribed in accordance with Federal hazardous materials 
transportation law shall govern safety aspects, including security, of 
the transportation of hazardous materials that the Secretary considers 
appropriate. In 49 CFR 1.53, the Secretary delegated authority to issue 
regulations for the safe and secure transportation of hazardous 
materials in commerce to the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety 
Administrator. The Administrator issues the Hazardous Materials 
Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR

[[Page 85]]

Parts 171 through 180) under that delegated authority. This section 
addresses the applicability of the HMR to packagings represented as 
qualified for use in the transportation of hazardous materials in 
commerce and to pre-transportation and transportation functions.
    (a) Packagings. Requirements in the HMR apply to each person who 
manufactures, fabricates, marks, maintains, reconditions, repairs, or 
tests a packaging or a component of a packaging that is represented, 
marked, certified, or sold as qualified for use in the transportation of 
a hazardous material in commerce, including each person under contract 
with any department, agency, or instrumentality of the executive, 
legislative, or judicial branch of the Federal government who 
manufactures, fabricates, marks, maintains, reconditions, repairs, or 
tests a packaging or a component of a packaging that is represented, 
marked, certified, or sold as qualified for use in the transportation of 
a hazardous material in commerce.
    (b) Pre-transportation functions. Requirements in the HMR apply to 
each person who offers a hazardous material for transportation in 
commerce, causes a hazardous material to be transported in commerce, or 
transports a hazardous material in commerce and who performs or is 
responsible for performing a pre-transportation function, including each 
person performing pre-transportation functions under contract with any 
department, agency, or instrumentality of the executive, legislative, or 
judicial branch of the Federal government. Pre-transportation functions 
include, but are not limited to, the following:
    (1) Determining the hazard class of a hazardous material.
    (2) Selecting a hazardous materials packaging.
    (3) Filling a hazardous materials packaging, including a bulk 
packaging.
    (4) Securing a closure on a filled or partially filled hazardous 
materials package or container or on a package or container containing a 
residue of a hazardous material.
    (5) Marking a package to indicate that it contains a hazardous 
material.
    (6) Labeling a package to indicate that it contains a hazardous 
material.
    (7) Preparing a shipping paper.
    (8) Providing and maintaining emergency response information.
    (9) Reviewing a shipping paper to verify compliance with the HMR or 
international equivalents.
    (10) For each person importing a hazardous material into the United 
States, providing the shipper with timely and complete information as to 
the HMR requirements that will apply to the transportation of the 
material within the United States.
    (11) Certifying that a hazardous material is in proper condition for 
transportation in conformance with the requirements of the HMR.
    (12) Loading, blocking, and bracing a hazardous materials package in 
a freight container or transport vehicle.
    (13) Segregating a hazardous materials package in a freight 
container or transport vehicle from incompatible cargo.
    (14) Selecting, providing, or affixing placards for a freight 
container or transport vehicle to indicate that it contains a hazardous 
material.
    (c) Transportation functions. Requirements in the HMR apply to 
transportation of a hazardous material in commerce and to each person 
who transports a hazardous material in commerce, including each person 
under contract with any department, agency, or instrumentality of the 
executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Federal government who 
transports a hazardous material in commerce. Transportation of a 
hazardous material in commerce begins when a carrier takes physical 
possession of the hazardous material for the purpose of transporting it 
and continues until the package containing the hazardous material is 
delivered to the destination indicated on a shipping document, package 
marking, or other medium, or, in the case of a rail car, until the car 
is delivered to a private track or siding. For a private motor carrier, 
transportation of a hazardous material in commerce begins when a motor 
vehicle driver takes possession of a hazardous

[[Page 86]]

material for the purpose of transporting it and continues until the 
driver relinquishes possession of the package containing the hazardous 
material at its destination and is no longer responsible for performing 
functions subject to the HMR with respect to that particular package. 
Transportation of a hazardous material in commerce includes the 
following:
    (1) Movement. Movement of a hazardous material by rail car, 
aircraft, motor vehicle, or vessel (except as delegated by Department of 
Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170 at 2(103)).
    (2) Loading incidental to movement of a hazardous material. Loading 
of packaged or containerized hazardous material onto a transport 
vehicle, aircraft, or vessel for the purpose of transporting it, 
including blocking and bracing a hazardous materials package in a 
freight container or transport vehicle, and segregating a hazardous 
materials package in a freight container or transport vehicle from 
incompatible cargo, when performed by carrier personnel or in the 
presence of carrier personnel. For a bulk packaging, loading incidental 
to movement is filling the packaging with a hazardous material for the 
purpose of transporting it when performed by carrier personnel or in the 
presence of carrier personnel (except as delegated by Department of 
Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170 at 2(103)), including 
transloading.
    (3) Unloading incidental to movement of a hazardous material. 
Removing a package or containerized hazardous material from a transport 
vehicle, aircraft, or vessel; or for a bulk packaging, emptying a 
hazardous material from the bulk packaging after the hazardous material 
has been delivered to the consignee when performed by carrier personnel 
or in the presence of carrier personnel or, in the case of a private 
motor carrier, while the driver of the motor vehicle from which the 
hazardous material is being unloaded immediately after movement is 
completed is present during the unloading operation. (Emptying a 
hazardous material from a bulk packaging while the packaging is on board 
a vessel is subject to separate regulations as delegated by Department 
of Homeland Security Delegation No. 0170 at 2(103).) Unloading 
incidental to movement includes transloading.
    (4) Storage incidental to movement of a hazardous material. Storage 
of a transport vehicle, freight container, or package containing a 
hazardous material by any person between the time that a carrier takes 
physical possession of the hazardous material for the purpose of 
transporting it until the package containing the hazardous material has 
been delivered to the destination indicated on a shipping document, 
package marking, or other medium, or, in the case of a private motor 
carrier, between the time that a motor vehicle driver takes physical 
possession of the hazardous material for the purpose of transporting it 
until the driver relinquishes possession of the package at its 
destination and is no longer responsible for performing functions 
subject to the HMR with respect to that particular package.
    (i) Storage incidental to movement includes--
    (A) Storage at the destination shown on a shipping document, 
including storage at a transloading facility, provided the original 
shipping documentation identifies the shipment as a through-shipment and 
identifies the final destination or destinations of the hazardous 
material; and
    (B) A rail car containing a hazardous material that is stored on 
track that does not meet the definition of ``private track or siding'' 
in Sec. 171.8, even if the car has been delivered to the destination 
shown on the shipping document.
    (ii) Storage incidental to movement does not include storage of a 
hazardous material at its final destination as shown on a shipping 
document.
    (d) Functions not subject to the requirements of the HMR. The 
following are examples of activities to which the HMR do not apply:
    (1) Storage of a freight container, transport vehicle, or package 
containing a hazardous material at an offeror facility prior to a 
carrier taking possession of the hazardous material for movement in 
transportation in commerce or, for a private motor carrier, prior to a 
motor vehicle driver

[[Page 87]]

taking physical possession of the hazardous material for movement in 
transportation in commerce.
    (2) Unloading of a hazardous material from a transport vehicle or a 
bulk packaging performed by a person employed by or working under 
contract to the consignee following delivery of the hazardous material

premises of the carrier's personnel or, in the case of a private 
carrier, departure of the driver from the unloading area.
    (3) Storage of a freight container, transport vehicle, or package 
containing a hazardous material after its delivery by a carrier to the 
destination indicated on a shipping document, package marking, or other 
medium, or, in the case of a rail car, storage of a rail car on private 
track.
    (4) Rail and motor vehicle movements of a hazardous material 
exclusively within a contiguous facility boundary where public access is 
restricted, except to the extent that the movement is on or crosses a 
public road or is on track that is part of the general railroad system 
of transportation, unless access to the public road is restricted by 
signals, lights, gates, or similar controls.
    (5) Transportation of a hazardous material in a motor vehicle, 
aircraft, or vessel operated by a Federal, state, or local government 
employee solely for noncommercial Federal, state, or local government 
purposes.
    (6) Transportation of a hazardous material by an individual for non-
commercial purposes in a private motor vehicle, including a leased or 
rented motor vehicle.
    (7) Any matter subject to the postal laws and regulations of the 
United States.
    (e) Requirements of other Federal agencies. Each facility at which 
pre-transportation or transportation functions are performed in 
accordance with the HMR may be subject to applicable standards and 
regulations of other Federal agencies.
    (f) Requirements of state and local government agencies. (1) Under 
49 U.S.C. 5125, a requirement of a state, political subdivision of a 
state, or an Indian tribe is preempted, unless otherwise authorized by 
another Federal statute or DOT issues a waiver of preemption, if--
    (i) Complying with both the non-Federal requirement and Federal 
hazardous materials transportation law, the regulations issued under

    (e) No person may offer or accept a hazardous material for 
transportation in commerce unless the hazardous material is properly 
classed, described, packaged, marked, labeled, and in condition for 
shipment as required or authorized by applicable requirements of this 
subchapter or an exemption or special permit, approval, or registration 
issued under this subchapter or subchapter A of this chapter.
    (f) No person may transport a hazardous material in commerce unless 
the hazardous material is transported in accordance with applicable 
requirements of this subchapter, or an exemption or special permit, 
approval, or registration issued under this subchapter or subchapter A 
of this chapter. Each carrier who transports a hazardous material in 
commerce may rely on information provided by the offeror of the 
hazardous material or a prior carrier, unless the carrier knows or, a 
reasonable person, acting in the circumstances and exercising reasonable 
care, would have knowledge that the information provided by the offeror 
or prior carrier is incorrect.
    (g) No person may represent, mark, certify, sell, or offer a 
packaging or container as meeting the requirements of this subchapter 
governing its use in the transportation of a hazardous material in 
commerce unless the packaging or container is manufactured, fabricated, 
marked, maintained, reconditioned, repaired, and retested in accordance 
with the applicable requirements of this subchapter. No person may 
represent, mark, certify, sell, or offer a packaging or container as 
meeting the requirements of an exemption, a special permit, approval, or 
registration issued under this subchapter or subchapter A of this 
chapter unless the packaging or container is manufactured, fabricated, 
marked, maintained, reconditioned, repaired, and retested in accordance 
with the applicable requirements of the exemption, special permit, 
approval, or registration issued under this subchapter or subchapter A 
of this chapter. The requirements of this paragraph apply whether or not 
the packaging or container is used or to be used for the transportation 
of a hazardous material.
    (h) The representations, markings, and certifications subject to the 
prohibitions of paragraph (g) of this section include:
    (1) Specification identifications that include the letters ``ICC'', 
``DOT'', ``CTC'', ``MC'', or ``UN'';
    (2) Exemption, special permit, approval, and registration numbers 
that include the letters ``DOT'', ``EX'', ``M'', or ``R''; and
    (3) Test dates associated with specification, registration, 
approval, retest, exemption, or special permit markings indicating 
compliance with a test or retest requirement of the HMR, or an 
exemption, special permit, approval, or registration issued under the 
HMR or under subchapter A of this chapter.
    (i) No person may certify that a hazardous material is offered for 
transportation in commerce in accordance with the requirements of this 
subchapter unless the hazardous material is properly classed, described, 
packaged, marked, labeled, and in condition for shipment as required or 
authorized by applicable requirements of this subchapter or an exemption 
or special permit, approval, or registration issued under this 
subchapter or subchapter A of this chapter. Each person who offers a 
package containing a hazardous material for transportation in commerce 
in accordance with the requirements of this subchapter or an exemption 
or special permit, approval, or registration issued under this 
subchapter or subchapter A of this chapter, must assure that the package 
remains in condition for shipment until it is in the possession of the 
carrier.
    (j) No person may, by marking or otherwise, represent that a 
container or package for transportation of a hazardous material is safe, 
certified, or in compliance with the requirements of this chapter unless 
it meets the requirements of all applicable regulations issued under 
Federal hazardous material transportation law.
    (k) No person may, by marking or otherwise, represent that a 
hazardous material is present in a package, container, motor vehicle, 
rail car, aircraft, or vessel if the hazardous material is not present.

    (l) No person may alter, remove, deface, destroy, or otherwise 
unlawfully tamper with any marking, label, placard, or description on a 
document required by Federal hazardous material transportation law or 
the regulations issued under Federal hazardous material transportation 
law. No person may alter, deface, destroy, or otherwise unlawfully 
tamper with a package, container, motor vehicle, rail car, aircraft, or 
vessel used for the transportation of hazardous materials.
    (m) No person may falsify or alter an exemption or special permit, 
approval, registration, or other grant of authority issued under this 
subchapter or subchapter A of this chapter. No person may offer a 
hazardous material for transportation or transport a hazardous material 
in commerce under an exemption or special permit, approval, registration 
or other grant of authority issued under this subchapter or subchapter A 
of this chapter if such grant of authority has been altered without the 
consent of the issuing authority. No person may represent, mark, 
certify, or sell a packaging or container under an exemption or special 
permit, approval, registration or other grant of authority issued under 
this subchapter or subchapter A of this chapter if such grant of 
authority has been altered without the consent of the issuing authority.

Sec. 171.3  Hazardous waste.

    (a) No person may offer for transportation or transport a hazardous 
waste (as defined in Sec. 171.8 of this subchapter) in interstate or 
intrastate commerce except in accordance with the requirements of this 
subchapter.
    (b) No person may accept for transportation, transport, or deliver a 
hazardous waste for which a manifest is required unless that person:
    (1) Has marked each motor vehicle used to transport hazardous waste 
in accordance with Sec. 390.21 of this title even though placards may 
not be required;
    (2) Complies with the requirements for manifests set forth in Sec. 
172.205 of this subchapter; and
    (3) Delivers, as designated on the manifest by the generator, the 
entire quantity of the waste received from the generator or a 
transporter to:
    (i) The designated facility or, if not possible, to the designated 
alternate facility;
    (ii) The designated subsequent carrier; or
    (iii) A designated place outside the United States.

    Note: Federal law specifies penalties up to $250,000 fine for an 
individual and $500,000 for a company and 5 years imprisonment for the 
willful discharge of hazardous waste at other than designated 
facilities. 49 U.S.C. 5124.

    (c) If a discharge of hazardous waste or other hazardous material 
occurs during transportation, and an official of a State or local 
government or a Federal agency, acting within the scope of his official 
responsibilities, determines that immediate removal of the waste is 
necessary to prevent further consequence, that official may authorize 
the removal of the waste without the preparation of a manifest. [Note: 
In such cases, EPA does not require carriers to have EPA identification 
numbers.]

    Note 1: EPA requires shippers (generators) and carriers 
(transporters) of hazardous wastes to have identification numbers which 
must be displayed on hazardous waste manifests. See 40 CFR parts 262 and 
263. (Identification number application forms may be obtained from EPA 
regional offices.)
    Note 2: In 40 CFR part 263, the EPA sets forth requirements for the 
cleanup of releases of hazardous wastes.

41 FR 38179, Sept. 9, 1976]



      Subpart B_Table of Hazardous Materials and Special Provisions



Sec. 172.101  Purpose and use of hazardous materials table.

    (a) The Hazardous Materials Table (Table) in this section designates 
the materials listed therein as hazardous materials for the purpose of 
transportation of those materials. For each listed material, the Table 
identifies the hazard class or specifies that the material is forbidden 
in transportation, and gives the proper shipping name or directs the 
user to the preferred proper shipping name. In addition, the Table 
specifies or references requirements in this subchapter pertaining to 
labeling, packaging, quantity limits aboard aircraft and stowage of 
hazardous materials aboard vessels.
    (b) Column 1: Symbols. Column 1 of the Table contains six symbols 
(``+'', ``A'', ``D'', ``G'', ``I'' and ``W'') as follows:
    (1) The plus (+) sign fixes the proper shipping name, hazard class 
and packing group for that entry without regard to whether the material 
meets the definition of that class, packing group or any other hazard 
class definition. When the plus sign is assigned to a proper shipping 
name in Column (1) of the Sec. 172.101 Table, it means that the 
material is known to pose a risk to humans. When a plus sign is assigned 
to mixtures or solutions containing a material where the hazard to 
humans is significantly different from that of the pure material or 
where no hazard to humans is posed, the material may be described using 
an alternative shipping name that represents the hazards posed by the 
material. An appropriate alternate proper shipping name and hazard class 
may be authorized by the Associate Administrator.
    (2) The letter ``A'' denotes a material that is subject to the 
requirements of this subchapter only when offered or intended for 
transportation by aircraft, unless the material is a hazardous substance 
or a hazardous waste. A shipping description entry preceded by an

[[Page 133]]

``A'' may be used to describe a material for other modes of 
transportation provided all applicable requirements for the entry are 
met.
    (3) The letter ``D'' identifies proper shipping names which are 
appropriate for describing materials for domestic transportation but may 
be inappropriate for international transportation under the provisions 
of international regulations (e.g., IMO, ICAO). An alternate proper 
shipping name may be selected when either domestic or international 
transportation is involved.
    (4) The letter ``G'' identifies proper shipping names for which one 
or more technical names of the hazardous material must be entered in 
parentheses, in association with the basic description. (See Sec. 
172.203(k).)
    (5) The letter ``I'' identifies proper shipping names which are 
appropriate for describing materials in international transportation. An 
alternate proper shipping name may be selected when only domestic 
transportation is involved.
    (6) The letter ``W'' denotes a material that is subject to the 
requirements of this subchapter only when offered or intended for 
transportation by vessel, unless the material is a hazardous substance 
or a hazardous waste. A shipping description entry preceded by a ``W'' 
may be used to describe a material for other modes of transportation 
provided all applicable requirements for the entry are met.
    (c) Column 2: Hazardous materials descriptions and proper shipping 
names. Column 2 lists the hazardous materials descriptions and proper 
shipping names of materials designated as hazardous materials. 
Modification of a proper shipping name may otherwise be required or 
authorized by this section. Proper shipping names are limited to those 
shown in Roman type (not italics).
    (1) Proper shipping names may be used in the singular or plural and 
in either capital or lower case letters. Words may be alternatively 
spelled in the same manner as they appear in the ICAO Technical 
Instructions or the IMDG Code. For example ``aluminum'' may be spelled 
``aluminium'' and ``sulfur'' may be spelled ``sulphur''. However, the 
word ``inflammable'' may not be used in place of the word ``flammable''.
    (2) Punctuation marks and words in italics are not part of the 
proper shipping name, but may be used in addition to the proper shipping 
name. The word ``or'' in italics indicates that there is a choice of 
terms in the sequence that may alternately be used as the proper 
shipping name or as part of the proper shipping name, as appropriate. 
For example, for the hazardous materials description ``Carbon dioxide, 
solid or Dry ice'' either ``Carbon dioxide, solid'' or ``Dry ice'' may 
be used as the proper shipping name; and for the hazardous materials 
description ``Articles, pressurized pneumatic or hydraulic,'' either 
``Articles, pressurized pneumatic'' or ``Articles, pressurized 
hydraulic'' may be used as the proper shipping name.
    (3) The word ``poison'' or ``poisonous'' may be used interchangeably 
with the word ``toxic'' when only domestic transportation is involved. 
The abbreviation ``n.o.i.'' or ``n.o.i.b.n.'' may be used 
interchangeably with ``n.o.s.''.
    (4) Except for hazardous wastes, when qualifying words are used as 
part of the proper shipping name, their sequence in the package markings 
and shipping paper description is optional. However, the entry in the 
Table reflects the preferred sequence.
    (5) When one entry references another entry by use of the word 
``see'', if both names are in Roman type, either name may be used as the 
proper shipping name (e.g., Ethyl alcohol, see Ethanol).
    (6) When a proper shipping name includes a concentration range as 
part of the shipping description, the actual concentration, if it is 
within the range stated, may be used in place of the concentration 
range. For example, an aqueous solution of hydrogen peroxide containing 
30 percent peroxide may be described as ``Hydrogen peroxide, aqueous 
solution with not less than 20 percent but not more than 40 percent 
hydrogen peroxide'' or ``Hydrogen peroxide, aqueous solution with 30 
percent hydrogen peroxide''.
    (7) Use of the prefix ``mono'' is optional in any shipping name, 
when appropriate. Thus, Iodine monochloride

[[Page 134]]

may be used interchangeably with Iodine chloride. In ``Glycerol alpha-
monochlorohydrin'' the term ``mono'' is considered a prefix to the term 
``chlorohydrin'' and may be deleted.
    (8) Use of the word ``liquid'' or ``solid''. The word ``liquid'' or 
``solid'' may be added to a proper shipping name when a hazardous 
material specifically listed by name may, due to differing physical 
states, be a liquid or solid. When the packaging specified in Column 8 
is inappropriate for the physical state of the material, the table 
provided in paragraph (i)(4) of this section should be used to determine 
the appropriate packaging section.
    (9) Hazardous wastes. If the word ``waste'' is not included in the 
hazardous material description in Column 2 of the Table, the proper 
shipping name for a hazardous waste (as defined in Sec. 171.8 of this 
subchapter), shall include the word ``Waste'' preceding the proper 
shipping name of the material. For example: Waste acetone.
    (10) Mixtures and solutions. (i) A mixture or solution not 
identified specifically by name, comprised of a single predominant 
hazardous material identified in the Table by technical name and one or 
more hazardous and/or non-hazardous material, must be described using 
the proper shipping name of the hazardous material and the qualifying 
word ``mixture'' or ``solution'', as appropriate, unless--
    (A) Except as provided in Sec. 172.101(i)(4) the packaging 
specified in Column 8 is inappropriate to the physical state of the 
material;
    (B) The shipping description indicates that the proper shipping name 
applies only to the pure or technically pure hazardous material;
    (C) The hazard class, packing group, or subsidiary hazard of the 
mixture or solution is different from that specified for the entry;
    (D) There is a significant change in the measures to be taken in 
emergencies;
    (E) The material is identified by special provision in Column 7 of 
the Sec. 172.101 Table as a material poisonous by inhalation; however, 
it no longer meets the definition of poisonous by inhalation or it falls 
within a different hazard zone than that specified in the special 
provision; or
    (F) The material can be appropriately described by a shipping name 
that describes its intended application, such as ``Coating solution'', 
``Extracts, flavoring'' or ``Compound, cleaning liquid.''.
    (ii) If one or more of the conditions specified in paragraph 
(c)(10)(i) of this section is satisfied, then a proper shipping name 
shall be selected as prescribed in paragraph (c)(12)(ii) of this 
section.
    (iii) A mixture or solution not identified in the Table specifically 
by name, comprised of two or more hazardous materials in the same hazard 
class, shall be described using an appropriate shipping description 
(e.g., ``Flammable liquid, n.o.s.''). The name that most appropriately 
describes the material shall be used; e.g., an alcohol not listed by its 
technical name in the Table shall be described as ``Alcohol, n.o.s.'' 
rather than ``Flammable liquid, n.o.s.''. Some mixtures may be more 
appropriately described according to their application, such as 
``Coating solution'' or ``Extracts, flavoring liquid'' rather than by an 
n.o.s. entry. Under the provisions of subparts C and D of this part, the 
technical names of at least two components most predominately 
contributing to the hazards of the mixture or solution may be required 
in association with the proper shipping name.
    (11) Except for a material subject to or prohibited by Sec. 173.21, 
173.54, 173.56(d), 173.56(e), 173.224(c) or 173.225(b) of this 
subchapter, a material that is considered to be a hazardous waste or a 
sample of a material for which the hazard class is uncertain and must be 
determined by testing may be assigned a tentative proper shipping name, 
hazard class, identification number and packing group, if applicable, 
based on the shipper's tentative determination according to:
    (i) Defining criteria in this subchapter;
    (ii) The hazard precedence prescribed in Sec. 173.2a of this 
subchapter;
    (iii) The shipper's knowledge of the material;
    (iv) In addition to paragraphs (c)(11)(i) through (iii) of this 
section,

[[Page 135]]

for a sample of a material other than a waste, the following must be 
met:
    (A) Except when the word ``Sample'' already appears in the proper 
shipping name, the word ``Sample'' must appear as part of the proper 
shipping name or in association with the basic description on the 
shipping paper.
    (B) When the proper shipping description for a sample is assigned a 
``G'' in Column (1) of the Sec. 172.101 Table, and the primary 
constituent(s) for which the tentative classification is based are not 
known, the provisions requiring a technical name for the constituent(s) 
do not apply; and
    (C) A sample must be transported in a combination packaging that 
conforms to the requirements of this subchapter that are applicable to 
the tentative packing group assigned, and may not exceed a net mass of 
2.5 kg (5.5 pounds) per package.

    Note to paragraph (c)(11): For the transportation of samples of 
self-reactive materials, organic peroxides, explosives or lighters, see 
Sec. Sec. 173.224(c)(3), 173.225(c)(2), 173.56(d) or 173.308(b)(2) of 
this subchapter, respectively.

    (12) Except when the proper shipping name in the Table is preceded 
by a plus (+)--
    (i) If it is specifically determined that a material meets the 
definition of a hazard class, packing group or hazard zone, other than 
the class, packing group or hazard zone shown in association with the 
proper shipping name, or does not meet the defining criteria for a 
subsidiary hazard shown in Column 6 of the Table, the material shall be 
described by an appropriate proper shipping name listed in association 
with the correct hazard class, packing group, hazard zone, or subsidiary 
hazard for the material.
    (ii) Generic or n.o.s. descriptions. If an appropriate technical 
name is not shown in the Table, selection of a proper shipping name 
shall be made from the generic or n.o.s. descriptions corresponding to 
the specific hazard class, packing group, hazard zone, or subsidiary 
hazard, if any, for the material. The name that most appropriately 
describes the material shall be used; e.g., an alcohol not listed by its 
technical name in the Table shall be described as ``Alcohol, n.o.s.'' 
rather than ``Flammable liquid, n.o.s.''. Some mixtures may be more 
appropriately described according to their application, such as 
``Coating solution'' or ``Extracts, flavoring, liquid'', rather than by 
an n.o.s. entry, such as ``Flammable liquid, n.o.s.'' It should be 
noted, however, that an n.o.s. description as a proper shipping name may 
not provide sufficient information for shipping papers and package 
markings. Under the provisions of subparts C and D of this part, the 
technical name of one or more constituents which makes the product a 
hazardous material may be required in association with the proper 
shipping name.
    (iii) Multiple hazard materials. If a material meets the definition 
of more than one hazard class, and is not identified in the Table 
specifically by name (e.g., acetyl chloride), the hazard class of the 
material shall be determined by using the precedence specified in Sec. 
173.2a of this subchapter, and an appropriate shipping description 
(e.g., ``Flammable liquid, corrosive n.o.s.'') shall be selected as 
described in paragraph (c)(12)(ii) of this section.
    (iv) If it is specifically determined that a material is not a 
forbidden material and does not meet the definition of any hazard class, 
the material is not a hazardous material.
    (13) Self-reactive materials and organic peroxides. A generic proper 
shipping name for a self-reactive material or an organic peroxide, as 
listed in Column 2 of the Table, must be selected based on the 
material's technical name and concentration, in accordance with the 
provisions of Sec. Sec. 173.224 or 173.225 of this subchapter, 
respectively.
    (14) A proper shipping name that describes all isomers of a material 
may be used to identify any isomer of that material if the isomer meets 
criteria for the same hazard class or division, subsidiary risk(s) and 
packing group, unless the isomer is specifically identified in the 
Table.
    (15) Unless a hydrate is specifically listed in the Table, a proper 
shipping name for the equivalent anhydrous substance may be used, if the 
hydrate meets the same hazard class or division, subsidiary risk(s) and 
packing group.

[[Page 136]]

    (16) Unless it is already included in the proper shipping name in 
the Sec. 172.101 Table, the qualifying words ``liquid'' or ``solid'' 
may be added in association with the proper shipping name when a 
hazardous material specifically listed by name in the Sec. 172.101 
Table may, due to the differing physical states of the various isomers 
of the material, be either a liquid or a solid (for example 
``Dinitrotoluenes, liquid'' and ``Dinitrotoluenes, solid''). Use of the 
words ``liquid'' or ``solid'' is subject to the limitations specified 
for the use of the words ``mixture'' or ``solution'' in paragraph 
(c)(10) of this section. The qualifying word ``molten'' may be added in 
association with the proper shipping name when a hazardous material, 
which is a solid in accordance with the definition in Sec. 171.8 of 
this subchapter, is offered for transportation in the molten state (for 
example, ``Alkylphenols, solid, n.o.s., molten'').
    (d) Column 3: Hazard class or Division. Column 3 contains a 
designation of the hazard class or division corresponding to each proper 
shipping name, or the word ``Forbidden''.
    (1) A material for which the entry in this column is ``Forbidden'' 
may not be offered for transportation or transported. This prohibition 
does not apply if the material is diluted, stabilized or incorporated in 
a device and it is classed in accordance with the definitions of 
hazardous materials contained in part 173 of this subchapter.
    (2) When a reevaluation of test data or new data indicates a need to 
modify the ``Forbidden'' designation or the hazard class or packing 
group specified for a material specifically identified in the Table, 
this data should be submitted to the Associate Administrator.
    (3) A basic description of each hazard class and the section 
reference for class definitions appear in Sec. 173.2 of this 
subchapter.
    (4) Each reference to a Class 3 material is modified to read 
``Combustible liquid'' when that material is reclassified in accordance 
with Sec. 173.150(e) or (f) of this subchapter or has a flash point 
above 60 [deg]C (140 [deg]F) but below 93 [deg]C (200 [deg]F).
    (e) Column 4: Identification number. Column 4 lists the 
identification number assigned to each proper shipping name. Those 
preceded by the letters ``UN'' are associated with proper shipping names 
considered appropriate for international transportation as well as 
domestic transportation. Those preceded by the letters ``NA'' are 
associated with proper shipping names not recognized for international 
transportation, except to and from Canada. Identification numbers in the 
``NA9000'' series are associated with proper shipping names not 
appropriately covered by international hazardous materials (dangerous 
goods) transportation standards, or not appropriately addressed by 
international transportation standards for emergency response 
information purposes, except for transportation between the United 
States and Canada. Those preceded by the letters ``ID'' are associated 
with proper shipping names recognized by the ICAO Technical Instructions 
(IBR, see Sec. 171.7 of this subchapter).
    (f) Column 5: Packing group. Column 5 specifies one or more packing 
groups assigned to a material corresponding to the proper shipping name 
and hazard class for that material. Class 2, Class 7, Division 6.2 
(other than regulated medical wastes), and ORM-D materials, do not have 
packing groups. Packing Groups I, II and III indicate the degree of 
danger presented by the material is either great, medium or minor, 
respectively. If more than one packing group is indicated for an entry, 
the packing group for the hazardous material is determined using the 
criteria for assignment of packing groups specified in subpart D of part 
173. When a reevaluation of test data or new data indicates a need to 
modify the specified packing group(s), the data should be submitted to 
the Associate Administrator. Each reference in this column to a material 
which is a hazardous waste or a hazardous substance, and whose proper 
shipping name is preceded in Column 1 of the Table by the letter ``A'' 
or ``W'', is modified to read ``III'' on those occasions when the 
material is offered for transportation or transported by a mode in which 
its transportation is not otherwise subject to requirements of this 
subchapter.
    (g) Column 6: Labels. Column 6 specifies codes which represent the 
hazard warning labels required for a package

[[Page 137]]

filled with a material conforming to the associated hazard class and 
proper shipping name, unless the package is otherwise excepted from 
labeling by a provision in subpart E of this part, or part 173 of this 
subchapter. The first code is indicative of the primary hazard of the 
material. Additional label codes are indicative of subsidiary hazards. 
Provisions in Sec. 172.402 may require that a label other than that 
specified in Column 6 be affixed to the package in addition to that 
specified in Column 6. No label is required for a material classed as a 
combustible liquid or for a Class 3 material that is reclassed as a 
combustible liquid. For ``Empty'' label requirements, see Sec. 173.428 
of this subchapter. The codes contained in Column 6 are defined 
according to the following table:

                        Label Substitution Table

------------------------------------------------------------------------
\1\ Refers to the appropriate compatibility group letter.
\2\ The packing group for a material is indicated in column 5 of the
  table.

    (h) Column 7: Special provisions. Column 7 specifies codes for 
special provisions applicable to hazardous materials. When Column 7 
refers to a special provision for a hazardous material, the meaning and 
requirements of that special provision are as set forth in Sec. 172.102 
of this subpart.
    (i) Column 8: Packaging authorizations. Columns 8A, 8B and 8C 
specify the applicable sections for exceptions, non-bulk packaging 
requirements and bulk packaging requirements, respectively, in part 173 
of this subchapter. Columns 8A, 8B and 8C are completed in a manner 
which indicates that ``Sec. 173.'' precedes the designated numerical 
entry. For example, the entry ``202'' in Column 8B associated with the 
proper shipping name ``Gasoline'' indicates that for this material 
conformance to non-bulk packaging requirements prescribed in Sec. 
173.202 of this subchapter is required. When packaging requirements are 
specified, they are in addition to the standard requirements for all 
packagings prescribed in Sec. 173.24 of this subchapter and any other 
applicable requirements in subparts A and B of part 173 of this 
subchapter.
    (1) Exceptions. Column 8A contains exceptions from some of the 
requirements of this subchapter. The referenced exceptions are in 
addition to those specified in subpart A of part 173 and elsewhere in 
this subchapter. A ``None'' in this column means no packaging exceptions 
are authorized, except as may be provided by special provisions in 
Column 7.
    (2) Non-bulk packaging. Column 8B references the section in part 173 
of this subchapter which prescribes packaging requirements for non-bulk 
packagings. A ``None'' in this column means non-bulk packagings are not 
authorized, except as may be provided by special provisions in Column 7. 
Each reference in this column to a material which is a hazardous waste 
or a hazardous substance, and whose proper shipping name is preceded in 
Column 1 of the Table by the letter ``A'' or ``W'', is modified to 
include ``Sec. 173.203'' or ``Sec. 173.213'', as appropriate for 
liquids and solids, respectively, on those occasions when the material 
is offered for transportation or transported by a mode in which its 
transportation is not otherwise subject to the requirements of this 
subchapter.
    (3) Bulk packaging. Column (8C) specifies the section in part 173 of 
this subchapter that prescribes packaging requirements for bulk 
packagings, subject to the limitations, requirements, and additional 
authorizations of Columns (7) and (8B). A ``None'' in Column (8C) means 
bulk packagings are not authorized, except as may be provided by special 
provisions in Column (7) and in packaging authorizations Column (8B).

[[Page 138]]

Additional authorizations and limitations for use of UN portable tanks 
are set forth in Column 7. For each reference in this column to a 
material that is a hazardous waste or a hazardous substance, and whose 
proper shipping name is preceded in Column 1 of the Table by the letter 
``A'' or ``W'' and that is offered for transportation or transported by 
a mode in which its transportation is not otherwise subject to the 
requirements of this subchapter:
    (4) For a hazardous material which is specifically named in the 
Table and whose packaging sections specify packagings not applicable to 
the form of the material (e.g., packaging specified is for solid 
material and the material is being offered for transportation in a 
liquid form) the following table should be used to determine the 
appropriate packaging section:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                 Corresponding packaging
Packaging section reference for solid materials     section for liquid
                                                        materials

Sec. 173.242.................................           Sec. 173.243
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    (5) Cylinders. For cylinders, both non-bulk and bulk packaging 
authorizations are set forth in Column (8B). Notwithstanding a 
designation of ``None'' in Column (8C), a bulk cylinder may be used when 
specified through the section reference in Column (8B).
    (j) Column 9: Quantity limitations. Columns 9A and 9B specify the 
maximum quantities that may be offered for transportation in one package 
by passenger-carrying aircraft or passenger-carrying rail car (Column 
9A) or by cargo aircraft only (Column 9B), subject to the following:
    (1) ``Forbidden'' means the material may not be offered for 
transportation or transported in the applicable mode of transport.
    (2) The quantity limitation is ``net'' except where otherwise 
specified, such as for ``Consumer commodity'' which specifies ``30 kg 
gross.''
    (3) When articles or devices are specifically listed by name, the 
net quantity limitation applies to the entire article or device (less 
packaging and packaging materials) rather than only to its hazardous 
components.
    (4) A package offered or intended for transportation by aircraft and 
which is filled with a material forbidden on passenger-carrying aircraft 
but permitted on cargo aircraft only, or which exceeds the maximum net 
quantity authorized on passenger-carrying aircraft, shall be labelled 
with the CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY label specified in Sec. 172.448 of this 
part.
    (5) The total net quantity of hazardous material for an outer non-
bulk packaging that contains more than one hazardous material may not 
exceed the lowest permitted maximum net quantity per package as shown in 
Column 9A or 9B, as appropriate. If one material is a liquid and one is 
a solid, the maximum net quantity must be calculated in kilograms. See 
Sec. 173.24a(c)(1)(iv).
    (k) Column 10: Vessel stowage requirements. Column 10A [Vessel 
stowage] specifies the authorized stowage locations on board cargo and 
passenger vessels. Column 10B [Other provisions] specifies codes for 
stowage requirements for specific hazardous materials. The meaning of 
each code in Column 10B is set forth in Sec. 176.84 of this subchapter. 
Section 176.63 of this subchapter sets forth the physical requirements 
for each of the authorized locations listed in Column 10A. (For bulk 
transportation by vessel, see 46 CFR parts 30 to 40, 70, 98, 148, 151, 
153 and 154.) The authorized stowage locations specified in Column 10A 
are defined as follows:
    (1) Stowage category ``A'' means the material may be stowed ``on 
deck'' or ``under deck'' on a cargo vessel and on a passenger vessel.
    (2) Stowage category ``B'' means--
    (i) The material may be stowed ``on deck'' or ``under deck'' on a 
cargo vessel and on a passenger vessel carrying a number of passengers 
limited to not more than the larger of 25 passengers, or one passenger 
per each 3 m of overall vessel length; and
    (ii) ``On deck only'' on passenger vessels in which the number of 
passengers specified in paragraph (k)(2)(i) of this section is exceeded.
    (3) Stowage category ``C'' means the material must be stowed ``on 
deck

[[Page 139]]

only'' on a cargo vessel and on a passenger vessel.
    (4) Stowage category ``D'' means the material must be stowed ``on 
deck only'' on a cargo vessel and on a passenger vessel carrying a 
number of passengers limited to not more than the larger of 25 
passengers or one passenger per each 3 m of overall vessel length, but 
the material is prohibited on passenger vessels in which the limiting 
number of passengers is exceeded.
    (5) Stowage category ``E'' means the material may be stowed ``on 
deck'' or ``under deck'' on a cargo vessel and on a passenger vessel 
carrying a number of passengers limited to not more than the larger of 
25 passengers, or one passenger per each 3 m of overall vessel length, 
but is prohibited from carriage on passenger vessels in which the 
limiting number of passengers is exceeded.
    (6) Stowage category ``01'' means the material may be stowed ``on 
deck'' or ``under deck'' on a cargo vessel (up to 12 passengers) and on 
a passenger vessel.
