2017-30 July 6, 2017 PHMSA to Debut New Mobile Applications for Online Code of Federal Regulations

By JHMT StaffJuly 06, 2017

On Thursday, July 6, 2017, the US Department of Transportation advised The Journal that it is issuing a press release regarding updates to their mobile CFR applications:

In its continuing efforts to improve safety and public access to the latest transportation regulations, the U.S. DOT Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) today made available a new online Code of Federal Regulations (oCFR) mobile application. The oCFR mobile application is a simplified version of the web-based application which was released to the public in March of 2016. The oCFR app was released to both Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store for use on iOS and Android mobile devices. The new oCFR app provides the first-ever mobile access to search, view and navigate PHMSA’s Hazardous Materials Regulations in 49 CFR parts 100-180 for the classifying, handling and packaging of hazardous materials by highway, rail, aircraft, and vessel. This app also provides the first-ever mobile access to PHMSA’s Pipeline Safety Regulations in 49 CFR parts 190-199, which provide the federal minimum safety standards for the design, construction, operation and maintenance, and spill response planning for pipeline and liquefied natural gas facilities involved in the transportation of natural gas and hazardous liquids within the United States. The mobile app is also unique because it allows users to navigate regulations at the paragraph level.

Interested parties with smart devices can find the oCFR with these links:
Google Play Store (for Android devices)
