DG Digest: FMCSA publishes revised Hazardous Materials Route Registry

The week just ended found us all seemingly stuck on “repeat,” which has become an enduring facet of one of the most difficult years the United States has faced in the modern era.  Efforts to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and deal with our nation’s civil crisis continued.  In the meantime, regulatory action continues, although it was a relatively quiet week overall.  Hang in there, everyone!  We’ll all get through this together.  Here is the latest news:

PHMSA

The agency published its latest batch of special permit actions.  This set seems to focus primarily on cylinders and the transport of various gases.  See the actions here:

FMCSA

The agency published its revised Hazardous Materials Route Registry based on input from the ICR published earlier this year.  The HMRR outlines the permitted routes over which motor carriers may operate vehicles laden with hazardous materials. See more about the revised registry here.

 OSHA

The agency issued a request for comments related to the renewal of an ICR dealing with the Anhydrous Ammonia Standard.  Anhydrous Ammonia is a volatile and toxic chemical that is widely used in agricultural applications.  See the request here.

ICAO

The organization released a new set of guidelines related to aviation transport issues during the ongoing pandemic. Among these guidelines is a new guidance module related to cargo transport. See the module here.
