On September 4, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration published a notice in the Federal Register titled Hazardous Materials: Notice of Actions on Special Permits.

This notice provides information on which special permits PHMSA has recently granted, denied, or were withdrawn. The Journal has indexed those notices and provides these indexes to readers in an easy-to-read format that provides direct links to the approved permits.

Christopher Lind, Technical Advisor provides a review of three Special Permits:

  • Transporting Division 4.1 Solids
  • Single shipment of a prototype Li-ion battery 
  • Shipment of three products of modules and battery packs each over 35 kg net weight

Read his review. You can also view the index of actions for September 2020. Subscriber login is required for both. Comments must be received on or before October 5, 2020, and can be submitted through the Federal eRulemaking Portal.
