We All Make Mistakes
It’s nice to know even the government makes mistakes. After all, we are all humans, right. On August 16, 2022, The Department of Transportation (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) published a Final Rule; Correction to its previously released Final Rule HM-215P. To take a quick look at what was said about the previous publication, you can check out our original blog here.
PHMSA states the correction is intended to:
“maintain alignment with international regulations and standards by adopting various amendments, including changes to proper shipping names, hazard classes, packing groups, special provisions, packaging authorizations, air transport quantity limitations, and vessel stowage requirements.”
It should also be noted that this correction takes effect August 25, 2022 and reads as follows:
