On June 18, 2018, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration published in the Federal Register its long-awaited final rule titled Hazardous Materials: Miscellaneous Amendments; Response to Appeals; Corrections [Docket No. PHMSA-2013-0225 (HM-218H)].

According to the summary, the final rule specifically responds to appeals to extend the effective date of certain nitric acid packaging and emergency response telephone number amendments as previously adopted. This final rule also clarifies amendments associated with the trigger date of the 10-year test period for certain MC 331 cargo tanks in dedicated propane service and corrects editorial errors.
