DG Digest: NEW IMDG and ADR Corrigenda Released

It’s Presidents Day this Monday, honoring all the men who have thus far served as our nation’s chief executive. Most people have a favorite president from history; do you? Given the holiday, most federal and state agencies are closed today. However, last week did feature some new regulatory action. Here’s the latest:


The IMO released a Corrigendum to Amendment 41-22 of the IMDG Code. The changes are minimal, primarily correcting some errata and updating some packing instructions. See the new Corrigendum here.


The EU ADR, which governs road transport of dangerous goods in the European Union and also in countries outside Europe that have adopted the ADR as a signatory, likewise published a Corrigendum. Much like the above IMDG Code document, it primarily address minor errata. See the Corrigendum here.


The agency proposed a rule to amend the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to incorporate by reference the most recent edition of the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, Inc. Commercial Driver’s License Information System State Procedures Manual. This would require all state driver’s licensing agencies to use this edition of the manual to provide guidance on the information systems procedures of the commercial driver’s license (CDL) program. See the NPRM here.


The agency published an ICR related to the safety of mechanical power presses, which are large industrial machines used in a variety of manufacturing applications. See the ICR here.
