Hazardous Materials: Compliant Money-Saving Strategies for Achieving Alignment with International Standards - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

This final rule is now effective. Are you sure your hazmat processes are in compliance?

Current hazardous materials regulations (HMR) have been amended to better align with international standards, which have seen several recent changes for companies and the management of hazardous materials. The new rule will impact the regulations that cover shipping names, hazard classes, packing groups, special provisions, packaging authorizations, marine pollutants, air transport quantity limitations, and vessel stowage requirements.

The rule, which had a voluntary compliance date of January 1, 2015, came with a delayed compliance date of January 1, 2016--unless otherwise specified due to certain exceptions involving placards, packaging and labels, among other things. The EPA estimates that harmonizing international standards with the HMR with will save U.S. companies a total of about $87.9 million per year.

Just in: On September 7, 2016, another hazmat rule was proposed that will add more requirements to keep the U.S. hazmat rules in sync with the newest versions of various international standards. Proposed changes include amendments to the §172.101 Hazardous Materials Table (HMT) and hazard communication requirements for shipments of lithium batteries. The goal is for these rules to be in effect as of January 1, 2017.

Use this in-depth on-demand webinar with practical strategies for complying with the recent HMR updates. Greg Haunschild of ACS Engineering will discuss the series of rulemakings being used to update and align the HMR with changes to international standards for hazardous materials transportation. Many companies need to pay particularly close attention to this final rule, including package testers, packaging and labeling manufacturers, and shippers, as several HMR changes affect them.
