I. Executive Summary

    In this final rule, PHMSA is amending the Hazardous Materials 
Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR parts 171-180) to incorporate changes adopted 
in the IMDG Code, the ICAO Technical Instructions, and the UN Model 
Regulations, effective January 1, 2015. These changes ensure the 
domestic hazard classification, hazard communication and packaging 
requirements are consistent with those employed throughout the world.
    Federal law and policy strongly favor the harmonization of domestic 
and international standards for hazardous materials transportation. The 
Federal hazardous materials transportation law (Federal hazmat law; 49 
U.S.C. 5101 et seq.) directs PHMSA to participate in relevant 
international standard-setting bodies and encourages alignment of the 
HMR with international transport standards to the extent practicable 
while recognizing that deviations may at times be necessary to be 
consistent with the public interest (see 49 U.S.C. 5120). Harmonization 
facilitates international trade by minimizing the costs and other 
burdens of complying with multiple or inconsistent safety requirements 
for transportation of hazardous materials. Harmonization has also 
become increasingly important as the volume of hazardous materials 
transported in international commerce grows. Safety is often enhanced 
by creating a uniform framework for compliance. PHMSA actively 
participates in relevant international standard-setting bodies and 
promotes the adoption of standards consistent with the high safety 
standards set by the HMR.
    The foreign trade of chemicals is a large segment of the United 
States economy. In 2000, U.S. foreign trade in chemicals totaled $154 
billion and generated a $6 billion positive trade balance. The 
consistency of regulations reduces regulatory compliance costs and 
helps to avoid costly frustrations of international shipments. PHMSA's 
continued leadership in maintaining consistency with international 
regulations enhances the hazardous materials safety program and assists 
in maintaining a favorable trade balance.

II. Background

    PHMSA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) under Docket 
HM-215M (79 FR 50741, August 25, 2014) to incorporate various 
amendments to harmonize the HMR with recent changes to the UN Model 
Regulations, the IMDG Code, and the ICAO Technical Instructions. When 
considering alignment of the HMR with international standards, we 
review and evaluate each amendment on its own merit, on the basis of 
its overall impact on transportation safety, and on the basis of the 
economic implications associated with its adoption into the HMR. Our 
goal is to harmonize without diminishing the level of safety currently 
provided by the HMR or imposing undue burdens on the regulated 
community.
    Based on this review and evaluation, in this final rule, PHMSA is 
amending the HMR to incorporate changes from the 18th Revised Edition 
of the UN Model Regulations, Amendment 37-14 to the IMDG Code, and the 
2015-2016 ICAO Technical Instructions, which become effective January 
1, 2015 (The IMDG Code is effective January 1, 2015; however, Amendment 
36-12 may continue to be used until January 1, 2016). Notable 
amendments to the HMR in this final rule include the following:
     Updating references to international regulations including 
the ICAO Technical Instructions, the IMDG Code, the UN Model 
Regulations, the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria the Canadian 
Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations and various technical 
standards.
     Adding, revising, or removing certain proper shipping 
names, hazard classes, packing groups, special provisions, packaging 
authorizations, bulk packaging requirements, and passenger and cargo 
aircraft maximum quantity limits from the Hazardous Materials Table 
(HMT).
     Adopting an exception from the HMR for marine pollutants 
up to 5 L (1.3 gal) for liquids or 5 kg (11 lbs.) for solids when these 
materials are packaged in accordance with the general packaging 
requirements of Sec. Sec.  173.24 and 173.24a. These exceptions are 
consistent with the UN Model Regulations, the IMDG Code, and the ICAO 
TI.

[[Page 1077]]

     Modifying the list of marine pollutants in Appendix B to 
Sec.  172.101.
     Adding minimum sizes for the OVERPACK and SALVAGE 
markings.
     Revising and adding vessel stowage codes listed in column 
10B of the HMT and segregation requirements in Sec.  176.83 consistent 
with the IMDG Code.
     Adsorbed gases: Adopting new entries into the HMR; adding 
a definition; authorizing packagings; and adding safety requirements 
including quantity limitations and filling limits.
     Harmonizing with the latest version of the ICAO TI to 
ensure that the information currently authorized by the HMR to be 
provided by means of an alternative document be included on a shipping 
paper for batteries transported under the provisions of Sec.  
173.185(c)(4)(v) equivalent to Section IB of ICAO TI Packing 
Instructions 965 and 968. PHMSA is also harmonizing with the latest 
version of the ICAO TI by requiring a ``CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY'' label on 
packages containing small lithium metal batteries not packed in or with 
equipment.
     Amending the HMR definition of non-bulk packaging by 
adding a new paragraph (4) to include bags and boxes conforming to the 
applicable requirements for specification packagings in subpart L of 
part 178 of this subchapter, if they have a maximum net mass of 400 kg 
(882 pounds) or less.

III. Incorporation by Reference Discussion Under 1 CFR Part 51

a brief synopsis of the comments we received regarding those proposals, 
and PHMSA's position regarding the comments. Additional comments are 
addressed in the section-by-section analysis section.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Comments which were outside the scope of this rulemaking are 
not addressed in this final rule.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Incorporation by Reference

    In the NPRM, PHMSA proposed to incorporate by reference the latest 
editions of various international transport standards including the 
2015-2016 ICAO TI, Amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code, the 18th Revised 
Edition of the UN Model Regulations, the International Atomic Energy 
Agency Safety Standards for Protecting People and the Environment; 
Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material, No. SSR-6, 
and the Canadian Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations. 
Finally, PHMSA proposed the incorporation by reference of new and 
updated standards published by the International Organization for 
Standardization (ISO). PHMSA received general support from the 
commenters on the principle of harmonizing the U.S. regulations with 
international transport and technical standards. We did not receive any 
comments that opposed our proposals to incorporate these standards and 
will adopt them in this final rule.

Exceptions for Marine Pollutants

    In the NPRM, PHMSA proposed to add a new exception from the HMR to 
Sec.  171.4 for marine pollutants up to 5 L (1.3 gallons) for liquids 
or 5 kg (11 lbs) for solids when these materials are packaged in 
accordance with the general packaging requirements of Sec. Sec.  173.24 
and 173.24a.
    PHMSA received comments from Gregory Sutherland, DGAC, IVODGA, and 
COSTHA concerning our proposed amendments to this section. General 
support for the harmonization effort was provided by COSTHA, IVODGA, 
and DGAC.
    Mr. Sutherland asks if the intent of the proposal was to eliminate 
limited quantity and excepted quantity shipments of marine pollutants, 
and further asks why anyone would offer a marine pollutant as a limited 
or excepted quantity with the new exception in place. PHMSA is not 
proposing to remove the ability to offer marine pollutants as limited 
or excepted quantities, but does agree with the commenter that the vast 
majority of shippers of limited or excepted quantity amounts of marine 
pollutants will choose to utilize the new exception instead of existing 
limited or excepted quantity provisions. Mr. Sutherland notes that as 
proposed there would be no restriction on the number of 5 L containers 
that are permitted in a combination package, so a package containing 
four 5 L bottles would contain 20 L of non-regulated marine pollutants, 
but a 10 L jerrican would be fully regulated. Mr. Sutherland is 
correct. There is no limit to the number of up to 5 L or 5 kg single or 
inner packagings that may be placed inside of a package under the 
conditions of the exception. Lastly, Mr. Sutherland notes that as 
proposed there would be no requirement to mark a freight container with 
the large marine pollutant marking even if that freight container 
contains nothing but packages of excepted marine pollutants. Mr. 
Sutherland is correct. If the shipments of marine pollutants are below 
the provided quantity thresholds per inner or single packaging and meet 
the applicable general packaging provisions no marking would be 
required on a cargo transport unit, regardless of the number of 
packages being offered under the exception.

[[Page 1078]]

    DGAC noted that they believe the language in the proposed paragraph 
(c)(l) could be clarified, as a partial reading could imply that single 
or inner packagings of 5 L or 5 kg of any material are excepted from 
the HMR. PHMSA agrees. The wording of the proposed exception is not 
clear enough to indicate that all shipments of marine pollutants 
meeting the quantity thresholds and general packaging provisions can 
utilize the exception assuming they are not also hazardous substances 
or hazardous wastes. The use of the exception for single or inner 
packagings of 5 L or 5 kg or less is not limited to materials offered 
under the UN identification numbers UN 3077 and UN 3082, but would also 
apply to marine pollutants that meet the definition of other hazard 
classes (i.e. paints or n.o.s. entries that meet the definition of more 
than one hazard class). PHMSA is amending the exception in 171.4 for 
clarification.
    IVODGA, while providing general support for harmonization on this 
issue, notes the reporting requirements under the International 
Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL) and the 
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Vessel's General Permit (VGP) 
Plan requirements and has some concern regarding the vessel operator's 
ability to identify these marine pollutants. Vessel owners or operators 
may be caught in a situation where they are transporting materials 
which may be excepted from various transport requirements, but still 
require reporting under domestic and international mandates. IVODGA 
states that some consideration of these reporting requirements should 
be addressed since these substances in small packages still represent a 
hazard if spilled from or on a vessel during operational phases 
especially when transported in container load quantities.
    PHMSA asserts that excepting up to 5 L for liquids and 5 kg for 
solids provides significant benefit to the shipper and aligns with 
requirements of other modes of transportation and international 
regulations. EPA's VGP Plan regulates discharges incidental to normal 
operations. Reporting requirements under the VGP Plan are for 
reportable quantities of substances as listed in Appendix A in 49 CFR 
172.101, and does not cover marine pollutants. PHMSA data over the past 
10 years contains just one record of a marine pollutant released on a 
vessel.\2\ Furthermore, that one incident involved a 55 gallon drum 
which would not be impacted by the proposed amendment. National 
Response Center (NRC) incident reporting since 2009 shows 415 initial 
reports to the NRC involving containership during that period. 78 of 
those reports involved leaking containers on deck, with 5 of the leaks 
reaching the water. Thirteen of those reports involved the loss of 
containers or pallets over the side. None of the incidents over the 
time period involved marine pollutants that would be excepted as a 
result of this final rule.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Modification of Marine Pollutant List in Appendix B to Sec.  172.101

    In the NPRM, PHMSA proposed the addition of 62 new entries 
consistent with the IMDG Code and removing the entry ``Chlorotoluenes 
(meta-;para-)'' based on its removal from the IMDG Code.
    PHMSA received two comments from the ACC regarding our proposed 
addition of dodecene, to the list of marine pollutants. In its first 
comment, the ACC requests a 30 day extension of the comment period to 
better understand ``dodecene's place on other lists referenced in the 
proposed rule.'' ACC notes that it would use the time to coordinate 
with industry to better understand the information contained in the 
dodecene Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and 
Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) dossiers. PHMSA is denying the ACC's 
request for a 30 day extension of the comment period for this 
rulemaking as the revision to include dodecene in the Marine Pollutant 
List is consistent with our standard practice of aligning Appendix B 
with the indicative list of marine pollutants found in the IMDG Code. 
In its second comment, the ACC notes that the use of the name 
``dodecene'' in both the IMDG Code and PHMSA's proposed rule makes it 
unclear exactly what substance is being regulated. When manufactured, 
dodecene may represent a number of Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) 
numbers and different chemical properties. In other words, this single 
description of dodecene may not reflect what ACC panel members 
currently manufacture and ship. The ACC also notes that the REACH 
registration of a close analog of dodecene, 1-dodecene/dodec-1-ene, 
indicates that dodecene would not meet the criteria of a Marine 
Pollutant, as set forth in the PHMSA list, based on aquatic toxicity 
data. The REACH dossier indicates ``conclusive but not sufficient for 
classification'' on both acute and chronic environmental categories 
associated with this compound. The inclusion of all entries proposed 
for addition in the NPRM was thoroughly vetted by several sub-
committees of the International Maritime Organization prior to adoption 
into amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code. The Group of Experts on the 
Scientific Aspects of Marine Environmental Protection (GESAMP) data 
assigns all dodecene isomers a B1 numerical rating of 4. This rating of 
4 indicates acute aquatic toxicity, and thus merits inclusion of 
dodecene (all isomers) to the list of marine pollutants in Appendix B 
to Sec.  172.101.

Adsorbed Gas HMT Entries

    In the NPRM, PHMSA proposed to revise the Hazardous Materials Table 
(HMT) in Sec.  172.101 to include seventeen new entries for adsorbed 
gases consistent with amendments adopted into the UN Model Regulations. 
We also proposed to add into the HMR a definition, authorized 
packagings, and safety requirements including quantity limitations and 
filling limits.
    PHMSA received three comments from COSTHA, DGAC, and Entegris 
noting that the entry for ``Arsine, adsorbed'' was not added to the HMT 
in the NPRM as intended. As a result, PHMSA is adding the entry 
``UN3522, Arsine, adsorbed'' to the HMT. Entegris also provided comment 
suggesting that Sec.  173.302c cannot be referenced in the HMT as a 
packaging instruction for bulk shipments of adsorbed gases, as there is 
no internationally accepted standard or authorization for bulk 
receptacles containing such gases. PHMSA agrees with the Entegris 
comment that bulk packagings for adsorbed gases are not presently 
authorized. As a result, PHMSA is revising Column (8C) of the HMT for 
the Adsorbed gas entries to indicate ``None.''
    In addition, Entegris and COSTHA requested that PHMSA incorporate 
provisions for the use of DOT specification cylinders to transport 
adsorbed gasses. PHMSA agrees with the commenters that appropriate 
provisions for the use of DOT cylinders should be considered. However 
this action was not proposed in the NPRM. Continued transportation of 
adsorbed gases is provided for under the provisions of Special Permit 
14237 and PHMSA will consider inclusion of DOT specification cylinder 
authorizations under a future rulemaking.

Lithium Battery Harmonization Proposals

    In the NPRM, PHMSA proposed harmonization with the latest version 
of the ICAO TI to ensure that the information currently authorized by 
the HMR, to be provided by means of an alternative document, be 
included on a shipping paper for batteries transported

[[Page 1079]]

under the provisions of Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v) which is equivalent to 
Section IB of ICAO TI Packing Instructions 965 and 968. PHMSA 
specifically requested input as to the costs and benefits of 
harmonizing the provisions of the HMR with the provisions of the ICAO 
TI by requiring shipping papers as opposed to alternative 
documentation. PHMSA received comments from UPS and Alaska Airlines 
concerning removal of the alternative document. UPS supported our 
proposed change to the documentation requirement for packages 
containing smaller lithium batteries transported in accordance with 
Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v). UPS also commented that the proposal to 
introduce a shipping paper requirement for shipments offered under 
Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v) could be interpreted to conflict with the 
statement in the preceding paragraph Sec.  173.185(c) in that such 
shipments are excepted from the requirements in subparts C through H of 
part 172. UPS suggests that Sec.  173.185(c) should be clarified in 
this regard. We agree clarification is warranted. Alaska Airlines 
commented that it would like to see increased harmonization between the 
HMR and the ICAO TI with regard to the documentation required while 
stating there is no reason to deviate from the ICAO TI. We agree, and 
note that the amendments proposed do provide for such consistency.
    Taking into account the comments from Alaska Airlines, PHMSA 
confirmed that the proposed amendments align with the requirements of 
the ICAO TI with regard to documentation. However, based on the comment 
from UPS, in this final rule PHMSA is revising Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v) 
as suggested by UPS for clarity. This editorial amendment will clarify 
that packages offered in accordance with Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v) are 
subject to the shipping paper requirements of subpart C of Part 172.
    In the NPRM, PHMSA proposed revision of Sec.  173.185(c)(1)(iii) to 
harmonize with the latest version of the ICAO TI by providing the 
option to use a ``CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY'' label or the existing HMR 
marking requirement on packages containing small lithium metal 
batteries excluding those packed with or contained in equipment. PHMSA 
received comments from UPS and COSTHA in support of the proposal. UPS 
commented that the provision in this paragraph excepting lithium metal 
cells or batteries packed with or contained in equipment in quantities 
``less than 5 kg net weight'' from the Sec.  173.185(c)(1)(iii) marking 
requirement differs slightly in wording from the current ICAO TI and 
previous requirements of the HMR. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising 
Sec.  173.185(c)(1)(iii) as proposed in the NPRM with an additional 
editorial revision to clarify that lithium metal cells or batteries 
packed with or contained in equipment in quantities ``not exceeding'' 
as opposed to ``less than'' 5 kg net weight are not subject to the 
marking or ``CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY'' label requirement. This provides 
editorial consistency with the provisions of the ICAO TI.
    In the NPRM, PHMSA proposed to amend the lithium battery 
requirements by authorizing use of a large packaging for a single large 
lithium battery or batteries contained in equipment. PHMSA received one 
comment from COSTHA in support of this proposal.

Definition of Non-Bulk Packaging

    To harmonize with the 18th Revised Edition of the UN Model 
Regulations, in the NPRM, PHMSA proposed to amend the definition of 
non-bulk packaging in Sec.  171.8 to include a bag or box having a 
capacity of greater than 450 liters (119 gallons) provided the net mass 
of the bag or box is 400 kg (882 pounds) or less. PHMSA received 
comments from Key Safety Systems, RIPA, TK Holdings Inc., and TRW 
Automotive in support of this proposal. However, RIPA conditioned their 
support on the presumption that the references to ``bag'' and ``box'' 
in the definition do limit users to all the conditions stipulated in 
subpart L of part 178. For example, the standard for each of the 
different bags provided in subpart L of part 178 imposes a maximum net 
mass limitation of 50 kg (110 pounds). PHMSA agrees that the text 
proposed in the revised definition of non-bulk packaging requiring the 
bag or box to conform to all applicable requirements for the 
specification packagings in subpart L of part 178 should be clarified 
and has revised the definition to include that the packaging may not 
exceed the maximum net mass limitation provided in subpart L of part 
178.

Vessel Stowage and Segregation Changes

    In the NPRM, PHMSA proposed to revise and add vessel stowage codes 
listed in column 10B of the HMT and segregation requirements in Sec.  
176.83 consistent with the IMDG Code. These changes harmonize the HMR 
with the IMDG Code and provide additional guidance on the loading and 
stowage of various materials. Additionally, we proposed to increase the 
required segregation distances between Division 4.3 dangerous when wet 
material (i.e. materials liable to give off a flammable or toxic gas in 
contact with water) and Class 3 flammable liquids and Division 2.1 
flammable gases. PHMSA received a comment from IVODGA providing general 
support for this harmonization effort.

V. Section-by-Section Review

    The following is a section-by-section review of the amendments 
adopted in this final rule:

Part 171

Section 171.4
    Section 171.4 prohibits the transportation of materials meeting the 
definition of a marine pollutant except in accordance with HMR 
requirements. Paragraph (c) provides that marine pollutants transported 
in non-bulk packagings are excepted from the HMR unless the 
transportation is by vessel. PHMSA is adding a new exception from the 
HMR for marine pollutants up to 5 L (1.3 gallons) for liquids or 5 kg 
(11 pounds) for solids when these materials are packaged in accordance 
with the general packaging requirements of Sec. Sec.  173.24 and 
173.24a. This amendment, applicable to all modes, exempts small 
packages of hazardous material from the HMR that are regulated only 
because of the presence of one or more marine pollutants.
    Comments received on this issue are discussed in detail in the 
Section IV ``Comment Discussion'' portion of this final rule. As a 
result of comments from DGAC, PHMSA is amending the exception in 171.4 
to indicate that the use of the exception for single or inner 
packagings of 5 L or 5 kg or less is not limited to materials offered 
under the UN identification numbers UN 3077 and UN 3082, but also 
applies to marine pollutants that meet the definition of other hazard 
classes (i.e. paints or N.O.S. entries that meet the definition of more 
than one hazard class).
Section 171.7
    Section 171.7 provides a listing of all standards incorporated by 
reference into the HMR. For this rulemaking, we evaluated updated 
international consensus standards pertaining to proper shipping names, 
hazard classes, packing groups, special provisions, packaging 
authorizations, air transport quantity limitations, and vessel stowage 
requirements and determined that the revised standards provide an 
enhanced level of safety without imposing significant compliance 
burdens. These standards have a well-established and documented safety 
history and their adoption will maintain the high safety

[[Page 1080]]

standard currently achieved under the HMR. Therefore, we are adding and 
revising the incorporation by reference materials under the following 
organizations:
    Paragraph (s)(1) which incorporates the International Atomic Energy 
Agency (IAEA) Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive 
Material 1996 edition is revised to incorporate the SSR-6 2012 Edition. 
The SSR-6 2012 Edition is replacing TS-R-1 (ST-1, Revised) 1996 Edition 
to address concerns over domestic and international differences in the 
transport conditions applicable to shipments of excepted fissile 
materials, PHMSA is adding additional requirements to Sec.  171.23 to 
ensure domestic concerns are addressed. Please see the discussion in 
the Section-by-Section Review under Sec.  171.23 for a summary of 
changes.
    Paragraph (t)(1) which incorporates the International Civil 
Aviation Organization Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of 
Dangerous Goods by Air, 2013-2014 Edition is revised to incorporate the 
2015-2016 Edition.
    Paragraph (v)(2), which incorporates the International Maritime 
Organization International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code, 2012 Edition, 
Incorporating Amendment 36-12, English Edition, Volumes 1 and 2, is 
revised to incorporate the 2014 Edition, Amendment 37-14.
    In paragraph (w) various International Organization for 
Standardization (ISO) entries which contain standards for the 
specifications, design, construction, testing and use of gas cylinders 
are incorporated by reference. ISO 9809-1:2010 (E), ISO 9809-2:2010 
(E), ISO 9809-3:2010 (E), ISO 10297:1999 (E), ISO 11114-1:2012 (E), ISO 
11117:1998(E), and ISO 11513:2011(E) are added.
    In paragraph (bb)(1), the Transport Canada, Transportation of 
Dangerous Goods Regulations, including Clear Language Amendments 1 
through 7 sub-paragraphs (ix), (x), (xi), and (xii), are added to 
include Amendment 8 (SOR/2011-239) which was published on November 9, 
2011; Amendment 9 (SOR/2011-60) published March 16, 2011; Amendment 10 
(SOR/2011-210) published October 12, 2011; and Amendment 11 (SOR/2012-
245) published December 5, 2012 respectively. In the preamble of our 
January 7, 2013 final rule (HM215-L [78 FR 987]) we indicated we were 
adopting Amendments 8, 9 and 10 of the Transportation of Dangerous 
Goods Regulations, however this adoption inadvertently did not appear 
in the published regulatory text. To correct this oversight, we are 
again including the adoption of Amendments 8, 9 and 10, along with the 
adoption of the most recent, Amendment 11.
    Paragraph (dd)(1), the United Nations Recommendations on the 
Transport of Dangerous Goods-- Model Regulations, 17th Revised Edition 
(2011), Volumes I and II, is revised to incorporate the 18th Revised 
Edition (2013), Volumes I and II.
    Paragraph (dd)(2), the United Nations Recommendations on the 
Transport of Dangerous Goods--Manual of Tests and Criteria, Fifth 
Revised Edition (2009), including Amendment 1 (2011), is revised to 
reference Sec.  171.24, and sub-paragraph (iii) is added to incorporate 
Amendment 2 (2013).
Section 171.8
    This section defines terms generally used throughout the HMR that 
have broad or multi-modal applicability. PHMSA is adding the following 
defined terms:
    Adsorbed gas: The adoption of this term directs the reader to Sec.  
173.115 for the definition. See the Sec.  173.115 entry of the Section-
by-Section Review for a complete discussion of the adoption of the 
definition of adsorbed gas.
    Bundle of cylinders: Consistent with the ICAO TI, PHMSA is amending 
this definition to clarify that a ``bundle of cylinders'' is not 
permitted for air transport.
    Large salvage packaging: Consistent with the UN Model Regulations, 
PHMSA is defining a large salvage packaging. A large salvage packaging 
is a special packaging into which damaged, defective or leaking 
hazardous materials packages, or hazardous materials that have spilled 
or leaked are placed for the purpose of transport for recovery or 
disposal. The general requirements for a large salvage packaging are 
consistent with the existing requirements for a ``large packaging.'' 
Large salvage packagings are not authorized for air transport. PHMSA 
received a comment from RIPA providing general support for the addition 
of this definition.
    Neutron radiation detector: Consistent with the UN Model 
Regulations, PHMSA is defining a neutron radiation detector. A neutron 
radiation detector is a device that detects neutron radiation. In such 
a device, a gas may be contained in a hermetically sealed electron tube 
transducer that converts neutron radiation into a measurable electric 
signal.
    Non-bulk packaging: Part 6 of the UN Model regulations was revised 
to remove the volumetric limit for certain packaging types that would 
be considered non-bulk packagings under the HMR. This was based on 
recognition by the UN Transport of Dangerous Goods Sub-Committee that 
there are packagings suitable for the transportation of high volume, 
low mass materials (e.g., airbags) where the capacity of a box may 
exceed 450 liters (119 gallons) while the net mass of the box is less 
than 400 kg (882 pounds). Absent a corresponding amendment to the HMR, 
U.S. manufacturers and shippers would be placed at a competitive 
disadvantage by not being authorized to use the same packaging 
configurations other than as authorized for use by Part 171 Subpart C 
(use of international transport standards and regulations). Therefore, 
to maintain consistency with the UN Model Regulations, and to authorize 
the use of these packaging configurations for domestic transport, PHMSA 
is revising the HMR definition of non-bulk packaging by adding a new 
paragraph (4) to include bags and boxes conforming to the applicable 
requirements for specification packagings in subpart L of part 178 of 
this subchapter, if they have a maximum net mass of 400 kg (882 pounds) 
or less. Based on our review of the UN Model Regulations, these are the 
only packagings affected by the UN amendment, as only bags and boxes do 
not have specified volumetric limitations.
    PHMSA received comments from Key Safety Systems, RIPA, TK Holdings 
Inc., and TRW Automotive in support of this proposal. However, RIPA 
conditioned their support on the presumption that the references to 
``bag'' and ``box'' in the definition do limit users to all the 
conditions stipulated in subpart L of part 178. For example, the 
standard for each of the different bags provided in subpart L of part 
178 imposes a maximum net mass limitation of 50 kg (110 pounds). PHMSA 
believes that the text proposed in the revised definition of non-bulk 
packaging requiring the bag or box to conform to all applicable 
requirements for the specification packagings in subpart L or part 178 
is clear in requiring the bags and boxes to completely conform to the 
specification, including the questioned maximum net mass limitation of 
50 kg (110 pounds) for bags.
    Radiation Detection System: Consistent with the UN Model 
Regulations, PHMSA is defining a radiation detection system. A 
radiation detection system is an apparatus that contains radiation 
detectors as components.

[[Page 1081]]

Section 171.23
    Section 171.23 prescribes requirements for specific materials and 
packagings transported under various international standards. Section 
171.22(b)(2) requires shipments made in accordance with an authorized 
international standard or regulation to conform to all applicable 
requirements of Subpart C of Part 171 which includes any requirements 
found in Sec.  171.23.
    Paragraph (b)(2) of this section requires the shipping paper 
description of items such as air bag inflators, air bag modules, and 
seat-belt pretensioners to conform to the requirements in Sec.  
173.166(c). Consistent with the UN Model Regulations, PHMSA is revising 
the proper shipping name of these items to read ``Safety device,'' with 
the addition of the term ``pyromechanical device'' being included as a 
``Safety device.'' Paragraph (b)(2) is being revised to reference the 
new proper shipping name, ``Safety device'' and the new term 
``pyromechanical device.'' As a consequence of the addition of the 
proper shipping name ``Safety devices, pyrotechnic,'' and special 
provision 161 being removed, paragraph (b)(2)(ii) is removed.
    PHMSA received one comment from DGAC concerning paragraph 
(b)(2)(i). Paragraph (b)(2)(i) states that an EX number or product code 
number must be included as part of the shipping description. DGAC notes 
that safety devices tested and certified as Class 9 in accordance with 
Sec.  173.166(b) do not require EX numbers and that the wording in this 
paragraph is confusing as it conveys that all safety devices require 
either an EX number or product code in association with the basic 
description on a shipping paper. We agree with DGAC that the EX number 
or product code shipping paper requirements when offering under 
international standards in accordance with Sec.  171.23(b) may be 
confusing when compared to the corresponding domestic requirements in 
Sec.  173.166(c) that only require the EX number or product code on a 
shipping paper for safety devices classed as Class 1, but excepts Class 
9 safety devices from this requirement. Taking into account the 
comments from DGAC, in this final rule, PHMSA is removing Sec.  
171.23(b)(2)(i) as the preceding paragraph (b)(2) requires that for 
each safety device, the shipping paper description must conform to the 
requirements in Sec.  173.166(c). By removing (b)(2)(i) and directing 
readers to the EX number and product code requirements prescribed in 
Sec.  173.166(c), any potential conflict between the two sections is 
removed.
    Paragraph (b)(11) of this section prescribes additional 
requirements for shipments of radioactive materials made under 
authorized international standards or regulations. PHMSA is 
incorporating by reference the 2012 IAEA SSR-6 regulations to replace 
the TS-R-1 (ST-1, Revised) 1996 Edition to allow shipments to be 
offered for transportation or transported under the most recent IAEA 
regulations. Several changes to the definition of excepted fissile 
materials and the requirements for its transport were adopted by the 
IAEA. Under their respective statutory authorities, DOT and the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission (NRC) jointly regulate the transportation of 
radioactive materials to, from, and within the United States. The NRC 
has not initiated any rulemaking activities to address changes made by 
the IAEA regarding the transportation of excepted fissile materials. In 
order to maintain uniform treatment for shippers of excepted fissile 
materials, PHMSA is amending Sec.  171.23 to require that shipments of 
excepted fissile materials offered in accordance with the IAEA SSR-6 
regulations must also conform to the requirements of Sec.  173.453.
Section 171.24
    Section 171.24 details additional requirements for the use of the 
ICAO TI. PHMSA is amending the marking requirement for packages 
containing primary lithium batteries and cells that meet the exceptions 
in paragraph (d)(1)(ii). Packages meeting these exceptions currently 
are required to be marked with an indication that they contain lithium 
batteries, and that these lithium batteries are forbidden for transport 
aboard passenger aircraft. PHMSA is making this change to allow the 
message that these batteries are forbidden for transport aboard 
passenger aircraft to be expressed through the current marking or by 
using a CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY label as shown in Sec.  172.448.
Section 171.25
    Section 171.25 details additional requirements for the use of the 
IMDG Code. PHMSA is amending the marking requirement for packages 
containing primary lithium batteries and cells that meet the exceptions 
in Sec.  173.185(c) in paragraph (b)(3). Packages meeting these 
exceptions currently are required to be marked with an indication that 
they contain lithium batteries, and that these lithium batteries are 
forbidden for transport aboard passenger aircraft. PHMSA is proposing 
to allow the message that these batteries are forbidden for transport 
aboard passenger aircraft to be expressed through the current marking 
or by using a CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY label as shown in Sec.  172.448.

Part 172

Section 172.101
    Section 172.101 provides instructions for using the Hazardous 
Materials Table (HMT) and the HMT itself. In this final rule, PHMSA is 
revising the instructional text that precedes the HMT for paragraph (k) 
of this section.
    Paragraph (k) of Sec.  172.101 explains the purpose of column (10) 
of the HMT and prescribes the vessel stowage and segregation 
requirements for specific entries in the HMT. Column (10) is divided 
into two columns: column (10A) [Vessel stowage] specifies the 
authorized stowage locations on board cargo and passenger vessels and 
column (10B) [Other provisions] specifies special stowage and 
segregation provisions. PHMSA is amending this instructional text to 
note that the codes in column 10B address not only codes for stowage 
requirements, but also, in certain instances, handling requirements 
that need to be observed during loading of the hazardous materials. The 
IMO, in amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code, has split their stowage and 
segregation column (16) in the dangerous goods list into two columns 
and assigned codes to the existing stowage, handling, and segregation 
text. The new first column (16a) in the IMDG Code is entitled stowage 
and handling, and the second column (16b) is titled segregation. PHMSA 
is maintaining the HMR's current column 10A and 10B system, with text 
in this section and Sec.  176.84 indicating that handling/loading of 
hazardous materials is also covered by certain codes in column 10B. See 
Section 176.84 other requirements for stowage, cargo handling, and 
segregation for cargo vessels and passenger vessels for a detailed 
discussion of changes.
Hazardous Materials Table (HMT)
    In this final rule, PHMSA is proposing to amend the HMT. Readers 
should review all changes for a complete understanding of the 
amendments. For purposes of the Government Printing Office's 
typesetting procedures, changes to the HMT appear under three sections 
of the Table, ``remove,'' ``add,'' and ``revise.'' Certain entries in 
the HMT, such as those with revisions to the proper shipping names, 
appear as a ``remove'' and ``add.'' Amendments to the HMT include the 
following:

[[Page 1082]]

New HMT Entries
UN3507--Uranium hexafluoride, radioactive material, excepted package, 
less than 0.1 kg per package, non-fissile or fissile-excepted

    This new HMT entry addresses small quantities of uranium 
hexafluoride having corrosive properties by assigning the material to 
Class 8 with a subsidiary risk of Class 7, since this is more 
consistent with the general rule of classification of radioactive 
material in limited quantities possessing other hazards per Sec.  
173.423. Shipments must comply with new special provision 369 and 
requirements found in Sec.  173.420(d).
    PHMSA received one comment from Veolia requesting that the proper 
shipping name be amended to read ``Radioactive material, uranium 
hexafluoride, excepted package, less than 0.1 kg per package, non-
fissile or fissile excepted'' in order to maintain the listing of all 
radioactive material proper shipping names in a manner that they appear 
in succession in the HMT. PHMSA is maintaining the proper shipping name 
as proposed for the purpose of international harmonization of shipping 
descriptions. It is important to note that the primary hazard indicated 
in the HMT and all applicable international dangerous goods lists is a 
Class 8 hazard. As such, there is no need to amend the proper shipping 
name to maintain a sequential list of all entries having a Class 7 
primary hazard.
UN3508--Capacitor, asymmetric with an energy storage capacity greater 
than 0.3Wh

    This new HMT entry covers asymmetric capacitors with an energy 
storage capacity greater than 0.3 Wh. Asymmetric capacitors are 
assigned as a Class 9 miscellaneous hazardous material.
UN3510--Adsorbed gas, flammable, n.o.s.
UN3511--Adsorbed gas, n.o.s.
UN3512--Adsorbed gas, toxic, n.o.s.
UN3513--Adsorbed gas, oxidizing, n.o.s.
UN3514--Adsorbed gas, toxic, flammable, n.o.s.
UN3515--Adsorbed gas, toxic, oxidizing, n.o.s.
UN3516--Adsorbed gas, toxic, corrosive, n.o.s.
UN3517--Adsorbed gas, toxic, flammable, corrosive, n.o.s.
UN3518--Adsorbed gas, toxic, oxidizing, corrosive, n.o.s.
UN3519--Boron trifluoride, adsorbed
UN3520--Chlorine, adsorbed
UN3521--Silicon tetrafluoride, adsorbed
UN3522--Arsine, adsorbed
UN3523--Germane, adsorbed
UN3524--Phosphorus pentafluoride, adsorbed
UN3525--Phosphine, adsorbed
UN3526--Hydrogen selenide, adsorbed

    The ``Adsorbed gas'' HMT entries are added to address shipments of 
gas, which when packaged for transport, are adsorbed onto a solid 
porous material in a pressure receptacle. Entries classified as 
Division 2.3 gases are forbidden for transport by aircraft. PHMSA 
received three comments from COSTHA, DGAC, and Entegris noting that the 
entry for ``Arsine, adsorbed'' was not added to the HMT in the NPRM as 
intended. As a result, in this final rule PHMSA is adding the entry 
``UN3522, Arsine, adsorbed'' to the HMT. Entegris also provided a 
comment suggesting that Sec.  173.302c cannot be referenced in the HMT 
as a packaging instruction for bulk shipments of adsorbed gases, as 
there is no internationally accepted standard or authorization for bulk 
receptacles containing such gases. PHMSA agrees with the Entegris 
comment that bulk packagings for adsorbed gases are not presently 
authorized. As a result, in this final rule, PHMSA is revising Column 
(8C) of the HMT for the Adsorbed gas entries to indicate ``None.'' .
    Duplicate entries for UN0214 Trinitrobenzene, dry or wetted with 
less than 30 percent water, by mass currently exist in the HMT; while 
the UN1354 entry has been inadvertently overwritten by one of these 
UN0214 entries in an unidentified previous rulemaking. PHMSA is 
removing one of the duplicate UN0214 entries, and reinserting the 
correct UN1354 entry.
Amendments to the Column (1) Symbols
    Section 172.101(b) describes column (1) of the HMT and the 
associated symbols that may be indicated in the column. In accordance 
with Sec.  172.101(b), the symbol ``G'' identifies proper shipping 
names for which one or more technical names of the hazardous material 
must be entered in parentheses in association with the basic 
description on a shipping paper. The symbol ``I'' indicates these 
proper shipping names are appropriate for describing materials in 
international transportation, but that an alternate proper shipping 
name may be selected when only domestic transportation is involved. The 
letter ``A'' denotes a material that is subject to the requirements of 
this subchapter only when offered or intended for transportation by 
aircraft, unless the material is a hazardous substance or a hazardous 
waste.
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adding international proper shipping 
names for ``Asbestos, amphibole (amosite, tremolite, actinolite, 
anthophyllite, crocidolite)'' and ``Asbestos, chrysotile,'' and 
removing shipping descriptions for Blue, Brown, and White Asbestos. 
These new international proper shipping names for ``Asbestos, 
amphibole'' and ``Asbestos, chrysotile'' have an ``I'' assigned in 
column one. PHMSA is also assigning a ``G'' to the ``Asbestos, 
amphibole'' entry. The ``G'' indicates that the technical name(s) of 
the hazardous material must be entered in parentheses, in association 
with the basic description. In the case of this proper shipping name, 
the technical name shown should be selected from the list of five 
different minerals (amosite, tremolite, actinolite, anthophyllite, 
crocidolite) indicated in italics after the proper shipping name. See 
the amendments to column (2) of the HMT for additional discussion 
regarding the revision of the proper shipping names for these entries.
    In this final rule PHMSA is assigning an ``A'' to column 1 for 
``Fish meal, stabilized or Fish scrap, stabilized'' consistent with 
changes made to the ICAO TI. PHMSA received one comment from Alaska 
Airlines supporting the assignment of an ``A'' to column one for this 
material.
Amendments to the Column (2) Hazardous Materials Descriptions and 
Proper Shipping Names
    Section 172.101(c) describes column (2) of the HMT and the 
requirements for hazardous materials descriptions and proper shipping 
names.
    In the NPRM, the proper shipping name for ``UN0222, Ammonium 
nitrate, with more than 0.2 percent combustible substances, including 
any organic substance calculated as carbon, to the exclusion of any 
other added substance'' was proposed to be amended by removing the 
italicized text and placing the text into the new special provision 
370. PHMSA received one comment from IME stating that the NPRM did not 
provide an adequate explanation to justify why the UN Sub-Committee of 
Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (UNSCETDG) recommends this 
change. IME provides several reasons that this amendment should not be 
adopted. IME notes that while the italicized text is not ``lost'' when 
placed in the new special provision 370, the absence of the text from 
the proper shipping name will add to confusion about this form of 
ammonium nitrate as UN0222 is one of six classifications of solid 
ammonium nitrate. Of the six, only UN0222 and NA0331 are Class 1 
entries and all of these entries have been distinguished from each 
other by italicized text. IME

[[Page 1083]]

further notes there was no proposal to remove clarifying italicized 
text from other entries.
    A review of the change to the UN Model Regulations revealed that 
the italicized text assigned to the proper shipping name for UN0222 was 
removed to resolve a potential contradiction with the new special 
provision 370 assigned to UN0222. The qualifying italicized text 
associated with this entry applies to materials with more than 0.2 
percent combustible substances; however, special provision 370 provides 
that Ammonium nitrate with not more than 0.2% combustible substances 
that give a positive result when tested in accordance with Test Series 
2 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria must also be assigned to 
UN0222. In this scenario, a user of the HMT with a material containing 
less than 0.2 percent combustible substances (see UN1942) may not be 
immediately aware that UN0222 should be used if the material 
simultaneously gives a positive result when tested in accordance with 
Test Series 2. By moving the italicized text from the proper shipping 
name to the special provision this contradiction is avoided by 
providing instruction for Ammonium nitrate containing both more than, 
and less than 0.2 percent combustible substances. Following the review 
PHMSA determined that any minor contradiction that may exist between 
maintaining the qualifying text as part of the proper shipping name or 
in the special provision is negligible. We agree with the comment 
submitted by IME that retaining the italicized text in association with 
the proper shipping name does have a benefit, and as such, we are 
retaining the italicized text ``with more than 0.2 percent combustible 
substances, including any organic substance calculated as carbon, to 
the exclusion of any other added substance'' as part of the proper 
shipping name.
    The proper shipping name for ``UN1942, Ammonium nitrate, with not 
more than 0.2% combustible materials, including any organic substance, 
calculated as carbon to the exclusion of any other added substance'' is 
amended by replacing the word ``materials'' in italicized text with 
``substances'' and the comma following ``substance'' is placed after 
the word ``carbon.'' Due to the present placement of the comma in the 
description for the two ammonium nitrate entries, the 0.2% combustible 
materials/substances are measured differently. This amendment ensures 
that the 0.2% combustible level is calculated as carbon in the case of 
organic substances. PHMSA received one comment from DGAC noting that 
the entry in the proposed HMT contained italicized text inconsistent 
with the amendment discussed in the NPRM (79 FR 50750). We agree and 
are correcting the italicized text as part of the proper shipping name 
consistent with the NPRM preamble discussion.
    Two new proper shipping names ``Asbestos, amphibole (amosite, 
tremolite, actinolite, anthophyllite, crocidolite)'' and ``Asbestos, 
chrysotile'' are assigned to identification numbers UN2212 and UN2590, 
respectively. These new proper shipping names more appropriately 
describe the material than the present ``UN2212, Blue asbestos 
(Crocidolite) or Brown asbestos (amosite, mysorite)'' and ``UN2590, 
White asbestos (chrysotile, actinolite, anthophyllite, tremolite).'' In 
the scientific community, Asbestos is divided into two chemical group 
names, ``Amphiboles'' and ``Chrysotile''. The amphibole group includes 
five different minerals (amosite, tremolite, actinolite, anthophyllite, 
crocidolite). The chrysotile group includes only the mineral 
chrysotile.
    The proper shipping name for ``UN3499, Capacitor, electric double 
layer (with an energy storage capacity greater than 0.3 Wh)'' is 
amended by placing the phrase ``electric double layer'' in Roman type. 
This amendment is necessary to differentiate this HMT entry from the 
new HMT entry, Capacitor, asymmetric.
    A new proper shipping name ``Safety devices, electrically 
initiated'' is assigned to identification number UN3268. Current proper 
shipping names assigned to UN3268 are ``Air bag inflators, or Air bag 
modules, or Seat-belt pretensioners.'' The adopted proper shipping name 
more appropriately describes materials authorized under this HMT entry 
in conjunction with the revision to special provision 160 to include a 
number of automotive industry life-saving appliances that are actuated 
by the electric signal of the crash sensor.
    A new proper shipping name of ``Safety devices, pyrotechnic'' is 
assigned to identification number UN0503. The current proper shipping 
names assigned to UN0503 are ``Air bag inflators, or Air bag modules, 
or Seat-belt pretensioners.'' The adopted proper shipping name more 
appropriately describes Class 1 materials authorized under this HMT 
entry.
    PHMSA received a comment from COSTHA noting that stocks of these 
materials are well into the millions, and therefore they requested that 
PHMSA identify a transition period during which the previous proper 
shipping names may continue to be used in association with the relevant 
UN number. COSTHA believes a 1-year transition (until January 1, 2016) 
would be sufficient to re-mark packages already in the supply chain. 
PHMSA notes that this final rule provides for a one year delayed 
compliance date from the date of publication. It is also important to 
note that Sec.  172.101(l)(ii) provides for the ability to use 
preprinted shipping papers and package markings, until depleted or for 
a one year period, subsequent to the effective date of a rulemaking 
change, whichever is less.
    The proper shipping name for ``UN1082, Trifluorochloroethylene, 
stabilized'' is amended by adding ``Refrigerant gas R 1113'' as an 
alternative proper shipping name for consistency with the dangerous 
goods lists of the various international standards and the HMT of the 
HMR. The adopted proper shipping name for UN1082 is 
``Trifluorochloroethylene, stabilized or Refrigerant gas R 1113''. 
PHMSA received one comment from DGAC noting that this entry is not 
listed in the proposed HMT under the ``REMOVE'' instruction; however, 
the new entry is listed under the ``ADD'' instruction. As a result, in 
this final rule, PHMSA is adding ``UN1082, Trifluorochloroethylene, 
stabilized'' to the entries under ``REMOVE'' in the instructions to 
amend the HMT. This will correct the regulatory instruction for 
amending the proper shipping name.
Amendments to Column (5) Packing Group
    Section 172.101(f) describes Column (5) of the HMT and the 
designation of the packing group(s) assigned to each proper shipping 
name.
    For the entries ``UN3316, Chemical kits'' and ``UN3316, First aid 
kits'' the Packing Groups II and III designations are adopted. The 
assignment of packing groups to these entries are not a new 
requirement; however, including packing group assignments in the HMT 
will ensure that shippers are aware that the most stringent packing 
group must be assigned to any individual substance in the kit in 
accordance with Sec.  173.161(b)(2).
    PHMSA received one comment from DGAC noting that the Packing Group 
III designation for ``UN3316, First aid kits'' was not added to the 
HMT. In this final rule, we are adding the Packing Group III entry to 
the HMT accordingly.
    The HMT entries for several articles are revised to remove packing 
group assignments. For articles, the packing group does not relate to 
the degree of hazard posed by the material but rather is assigned 
generically to the article.

[[Page 1084]]

There is limited value in requiring an indication of the packing group 
in association with the shipment. Currently and without specific 
rationale, some articles are assigned packing groups while others are 
not. This change provides a level of consistency for all articles 
specifically listed in the HMT. In this final rule, PHMSA is removing 
packing group assignments from the following HMT entries:

PHMSA received comment from DGAC noting that for UN2794, UN2795, and 
UN2800, the Column (5) packing group assignments were removed in the 
HMT but not discussed in the NPRM preamble. The entries for these 
articles have been added to the above table for clarity.

Amendments to the Column (7) Special Provisions

    Section 172.101(h) describes Column (7) of the HMT and Sec.  
172.102(c) the special provisions assigned to specific entries in the 
HMT. The particular modifications to the entries in the HMT are 
discussed below. See Section 172.102 special provisions for a detailed 
discussion of the additions, revisions, and deletions to the special 
provisions addressed in this final rule.
    In this final rule, special provision 134 is added to the HMT entry 
``UN3072, Life-saving appliances, not self-inflating containing 
dangerous goods as equipment.'' The addition of this special provision 
will clarify that equipment containing only lithium batteries must be 
consigned under the entries ``Lithium batteries contained in 
equipment'' or ``Lithium batteries packed with equipment,'' as 
appropriate.
    PHMSA received one comment from DGAC noting for the entry ``UN2990, 
Life-Saving Appliances, Self Inflating,'' that ``Special Provision 338 
is missing from Column 7 in the proposed HMT.'' This was an inadvertent 
omission. Special provision 338 has been reestablished.
    Several HMT entries are revised to include new special provision 
367. Special provision 367 authorizes the use of the ``Paint related 
material'' entries for consignments of packages containing ``Paint'' 
and ``Paint related material'' in the same package. This special 
provision also authorizes the proper shipping name ``Printing ink 
related material'' for consignments of packages containing ``Printing 
Ink'' and ``Printing ink related material'' in the same package.
    In this final rule, new special provision 367 is assigned to the 
following entries:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    Proper shipping name                        UN No.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

 flammable.................................................
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    PHMSA received one comment from DGAC regarding the UN1210 PG II 
entry in the proposed HMT. DGAC noted that 367 inserted before 149 in 
Column (7) and is in non-sequential order. We agree and have amended 
the entry accordingly.
    In this final rule, we are adding new special provision 368 to the 
HMT entry ``UN2910, Radioactive material, excepted package-limited 
quantity of material.''
    In this final rule, new special provision 369 is assigned to the 
new HMT entry ``UN3507, Uranium hexafluoride, radioactive material, 
excepted package, less than 0.1 kg per package, non-fissile or fissile-
excepted.''
    In this final rule, new special provision 370 is assigned to the 
HMT entry ``UN0222, Ammonium nitrate.'' This special provision 
addresses a situation where Ammonium Nitrate, with not more than 0.2% 
carbon, does not satisfy Test Series 2 and therefore cannot be 
accommodated under the entry for ``UN1942, Ammonium nitrate.''
    In this final rule, new special provision 371 is assigned to the 
HMT entry ``UN3164, Articles, pressurized

[[Page 1085]]

pneumatic or hydraulic containing non-flammable gas.''
    In this final rule, special provision IB6 is replaced with IB8 and 
special provisions IP2, and IP4 are added for the HMT Packing Group III 
entry ``UN3089, Metal powders, flammable, n.o.s.'' IB8 is presently 
assigned to the Packing Group II entry, therefore, fiberboard, wooden 
and flexible IBCs are allowed for the Packing Group II materials, but 
are forbidden for the less dangerous Packing Group III substance. These 
revisions will correct the inconsistency.
    In this final rule, new special provision A61 is assigned to the 
HMT entries ``UN 3107, Organic peroxide type E, liquid'' and ``UN 3109, 
Organic peroxide type F, liquid''
    Several HMT entries are revised to include new portable tank 
special provision TP47. Special provision TP47 indicates that the 2.5 
year internal portable tank examination may be waived or substituted by 
other test methods or inspection procedures specified by the competent 
authority or its authorized body, provided that the portable tank is 
dedicated to the transport of the organometallic. However, this 
examination is required when the conditions of Sec.  180.605(f) are 
met.
    In this NPRM, new special provision TP47 is assigned to the 
following entries:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    Proper shipping name                        UN No.

    PHMSA received one comment from DGAC noting that for the entry 
``UN3375, Ammonium nitrate emulsion,'' IB2 and TP32 are listed in 
Column (7) in the changes to the proposed HMR. DGAC notes that ``these 
special provisions are not present in Column (7) in the 10-1-13 version 
of the HMR.'' Although the addition of IB2 to Column (7) was not 
described in the amendments to Column (7) of the NPRM, this revision 
was intentional. PHMSA is aligning with international standards to add 
IBCs as an authorized packaging for UN3375. In the NPRM, portable tank 
special provision TP32 was inadvertently added to this HMT entry in 
error. While this portable tank special provision was assigned to 
UN3375 in the UN Model Regulations and the IMDG Code, the HMR do not 
authorize UN3375 in portable tanks and therefore a portable tank 
special provision is not appropriate. In this final rule, for the entry 
UN3375, Ammonium nitrate emulsion,'' PHMSA is adding special provisions 
IB2, IP16, and removing TP32 as proposed in the NPRM. New special 
provision IP16 is described in the Section 172.102 special provisions 
discussion for IBC Codes and IP Codes.
Amendments to Column (8B) Non-Bulk Packaging Authorizations.
    PHMSA received one comment from DGAC noting that for the entry 
``UN3375, Ammonium nitrate emulsion,'' 231 is listed in is listed in 
Column (8B) in the changes to the proposed HMT. DGAC notes that 
packaging authorization 214 is present in Column (8B) in the 10-1-13 
version of 49 CFR. Although this revision was not described in the 
amendments to Column (8B) of the NPRM, the revision from 231 to 214 was 
intentional as discussed in the section-by-section review of Sec.  
173.231 (79 FR 50764).
Amendments to Column (8C) Bulk Packaging Authorizations.
    PHMSA received one comment from DGAC noting that for the entry ``UN 
3375, Ammonium nitrate emulsion,'' 231 is listed in Column (8C) in the 
changes to the proposed HMT. The UN Sub-Committee of Experts on the 
Transportation of Dangerous Goods added authorizations for certain IBCs 
in the UN Model regulations for UN 3375. This authorization 
necessitates the incorporation of a bulk packaging authorization for 
this HMT entry. In this final rule PHMSA is creating a new Sec.  
173.251 and assigning it to column (8C) for this entry to authorize the 
use of IBC's.
Amendments to the Column (9) Quantity Limitations.
    Section 172.101(j) describes Column (9) of the HMT and the quantity 
limitations for specific entries in the HMT. Furthermore, Columns (9A) 
and (9B) specify the maximum quantities that may be offered for 
transportation in one package by passenger-carrying aircraft or 
passenger-carrying rail car (Column (9A) or by cargo-only aircraft 
(Column (9B). The indication of ``forbidden'' means the material may 
not be offered for transportation or transported in the applicable mode 
of transport.
    For the entry ``UN3497, Krill meal'' quantity limits of 15 kg and 
50 kg for PG II, and 25 kg and 100 kg for PG III, are adopted for 
columns (9A) and (9B) respectively. Previously, there was no limit to 
the amount authorized to be shipped in one package. These new quantity 
limits are consistent with authorized quantity limits found in the ICAO 
TI.
    At the 24th meeting the ICAO DGP, it was agreed to incorporate 
certain UN numbers contained in the UN Model Regulations, but not 
currently listed in the ICAO TI. For the entries ``UN2216, Fish meal, 
stabilized or Fish scrap, stabilized,'' and ``UN1374 Fish meal, 
unstabilized or Fish scrap, unstabilized'' the panel determined that 
they should be forbidden for transport on both cargo and passenger 
aircraft. In this final rule, PHMSA is aligning with the ICAO TI by 
revising columns (9A) and (9B) to ``Forbidden.'' PHMSA received one 
comment from Alaska Airlines in support of this revision.
    DGAC commented that for the HMT entry ``UN3221, Self-reactive 
liquid type B,'' columns (9A) and (9B) in the current HMT contain a (2) 
footnote, and that in the NPRM, PHMSA proposed revising these 
limitations to indicate ``Forbidden'' without any preamble discussion. 
This entry was revised in a Federal Register correction document (78 FR 
17874), but due to a publication error was not transitioned into the 
printed or electronic versions of the CFR. In this rulemaking PHMSA is 
reinstating the correct quantity limitation notation of ``Forbidden'' 
in columns 9A and 9B for this entry.
Amendments to the Column (10) Vessel Stowage Requirements.
    Section 172.101(k) explains the purpose of column (10) of the HMT 
and

[[Page 1086]]

prescribes the vessel stowage and segregation requirements for specific 
entries in the HMT. Column (10) is divided into two columns: column 
(10A) [Vessel stowage] specifies the authorized stowage locations on 
board cargo and passenger vessels and column (10B) [Other provisions] 
specifies special stowage and segregation provisions.
    The IMO, in amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code, split their stowage 
and segregation column (16) in the dangerous goods list into two 
columns and assigned codes to the existing stowage, handling, and 
segregation text. The new first column (16a) in the IMDG Code is titled 
stowage and handling, and the second column (16b) is titled 
segregation. PHMSA is maintaining the HMT's current column (10A) and 
(10B), while also harmonizing our vessel stowage codes in columns (10A) 
and (10B) as closely as possible with those in amendment 37-14 of the 
IMDG Code. There are several instances where PHMSA is maintaining 
additional codes (see UN numbers 0019, 0020, 0021, 0301, 0303, 1017, 
1131, 1389, 1392, 1420, 1422, 1780, 1942, 1950, 2679, 2912, 3015, 3071, 
3101-3106, 3108-3110, 3242, 3323, and 3497) that vary from IMDG Code 
stowage and segregation requirements. These additional stowage and 
segregation provisions vary by UN number, but are considered additional 
precautions deemed necessary to ensure the safe transport of these 
commodities during transportation by vessel.
    During the preparation of the NPRM and final rule, PHMSA and the 
United States Coast Guard conducted an extensive review of all HMT 
entries to verify that domestic entries correspond as closely as 
possible with the provisions found in the IMDG Code. PHMSA is making 
numerous changes to the codes found in the HMT's column (10B) [Other 
provisions] as a result of this review. The majority of the changes are 
a result of work done at the IMO to eliminate duplicate and unnecessary 
provisions. Some of the proposed changes to column (10B) are adopted to 
harmonize existing differences in stowage, handling, and segregation 
provisions between the HMR and the IMDG Code. A table of changes, 
listed in alphabetical order, showing the proper shipping name, UN 
identification number, any stowage codes adopted for removal, and any 
stowage codes adopted for addition is provided below. If a column is 
blank, no changes were adopted. The meaning of the codes in column 
(10B) can be found either in Sec.  176.84 or are listed in the Sec.  
176.84 Section-by-Section change portion of this final rule.

    PHMSA received two comments concerning amendments to column (10B) 
of the HMT. IVODGA commented providing full support for the changes as 
proposed in the NPRM. DGAC provided multiple editorial comments related 
to the assignment of various vessel stowage codes primarily based on 
the codes indicated in the above table when compared to what was 
proposed in the NPRM. The DGAC comments are as follows:
    ``Aluminum Ferrosilicon Powder (UN1395) The PG III entry is missing 
Vessel Stowage Code 148 in column 10B in the Docket HMT . . .'' PHMSA 
agrees and has amended column (10B) accordingly.
    ``Aluminum Powder Coated (UN1309) Per the table of 176.84 changes, 
13, 147, and 148 are to be added in column 10B for this entry (PG II 
and III) . . . The addition of 13 is not necessary as this entry (PG II 
and III) already lists a Vessel Stowage Code 13 in column 10B per the 
10-1-13 version of 49 CFR.'' PHMSA agrees and code 13 is removed from 
the table of changes.
    ``Ammonium Sulfide Solution (UN2683) The vessel stowage codes 
listed in column 10B in the proposed HMT for this entry are not in 
numerical order . . . The vessel stowage codes are listed as 12, 25, 
22, 52, 100 versus 12, 22, 25, 52, 100.'' PHMSA agrees and the codes 
are reordered.
    ``Barium Peroxide (UN1449) The Vessel Stowage Location listed in 
column 10A in the proposed HMT is C . . . In the 10-1-13 Version of 49 
CFR, the Vessel Stowage Location listed in Column 10A is A.'' Although 
not specifically identified in the preamble to the NPRM the stowage 
category for this UN number has been amended by the IMO in amendment 
37-14 of the IMDG Code. As a result PHMSA is revising column (10A) to 
read C.
    ``Batteries, Dry, Containing Potassium Hydroxide Solid (UN3028) 
Vessel stowage code 52 is removed in column 10B in the proposed HMT for 
this entry . . . There is no entry in the Table of 176.84 Changes . . 
.'' Code 52 should not have been proposed for removal in association 
with this entry and is reinserted in the HMT.
    ``Batteries, Wet, Filled With Acid (UN2794) Vessel Stowage Code 146 
is removed in column 10B in the proposed HMT for this entry . . . There 
is no entry in the table of 176.84 changes . . .'' Code 146 should not 
have been proposed for removal in association with this entry and it 
has been reinserted in the HMT.
    ``Batteries, Wet, Filled With Alkali (UN2795) Vessel stowage codes 
52 and 146 are removed in column 10B in the proposed HMT for this entry 
. . . There is no entry in the table of 176.84 changes . . .'' Codes 52 
and 146 should not have been proposed for removal in association with 
this entry and they have been reinserted in the HMT.
    Boron Trifluoride Dihydrate (UN2851) This entry is incorrectly 
identified in the table of 176.84 changes as Boron Trifluoride 
Dehydrate. PHMSA agrees and has modified the table accordingly.
    ``Boron Trifluoride Dimethyl Etherate (UN2965) This entry is 
listing Vessel Stowage Codes 13, 21, 25, 28, 40, 49, 100, 147, 148 in 
column 10B in the proposed HMT . . . Vessel Stowage Codes 21, 28, 40, 
49, 100 are present in the 10-1-13 version of 49 CFR. Per the Table of 
176.84 changes, only 25 was to be added for this entry. [There is no 
mention of adding 13, 147, 148] . . .'' Codes 13, 147, and 148 should 
not have been proposed for addition in association with this entry and 
the HMT has been amended accordingly.
    ``Bromine (UN1744) This entry is listing Vessel Stowage Codes 12, 
25, 40, 66, 74 in column 10B in the proposed HMT . . . Vessel stowage 
codes 12, 40, 66, 74, 89, 90 are present in the 10-1-13 version of 49 
CFR. Per the table of 176.84 changes, only 25 was to be added for this 
entry. [There is no mention of removing 89 and 90] . . .'' DGAC is 
correct and codes 89 and 90 are reinserted in the HMT.
    Bromoform (UN2515) There is no UN number shown in the table of 
176.84 changes. The appropriate UN number has been added to the table.
    ``Calcium Peroxide (UN1457) The Vessel Stowage Location listed in 
column 10A in the proposed HMT is C . . . In the 10-1-13 version of 49 
CFR, the Vessel Stowage Location listed in column 10A is A.'' Although 
not specifically identified in the preamble to the NPRM, the stowage 
category for this UN number has been amended by the IMO in amendment 
37-14 of the

[[Page 1091]]

IMDG Code. As a result PHMSA is revising column (10A) to read C.
    ``Cerium (UN1333) This entry is listing Vessel Stowage Codes 13, 
66, 74, 91, 147, 148 in column 10B in the proposed HMT . . . Vessel

Per the table of 176.84 changes, only 13, 147, and 148 are to be added 
for this entry and there is no mention of adding 66 . . .'' Code 66 
should not have been proposed for addition in association with this 
entry and has been removed from the HMT.
    ``Chlorocresols, Solid (UN3437) This entry is listing Vessel 
Stowage Codes 12 and 25 in column 10B in the proposed HMT . . . Vessel 
Stowage Code 12 is present in the 10-1-13 version of 49 CFR. There is 
no entry in the table of 176.84 changes for Chlorocresols, Solid . . 
.'' This proposed change was noted in the NPRM table of proposed 
changes. No action needed.
    Chlorocresols Solution (UN2669) This entry is incorrectly 
identified in the table of 176.84 changes as having the UN number 
UN3437 assigned instead of UN2669. PHMSA agrees and has modified the 
table accordingly.
    ``Chloromethyl Chloroformate (UN2745) Per the table of 176.84 
changes, Vessel Stowage Code 12 is proposed to be added for this entry 
. . . The addition of 12 is not necessary as this entry already lists a 
Vessel Stowage Code 12 in column 10B per the 10-1-13 version of 49 
CFR.'' Code 12 should not have been listed in the table of changes in 
association with this entry and has been removed from the table of 
changes.
    ``Corrosive Solids, Water-Reactive, N.O.S. (UN3096) Per the table 
of 176.84 changes, Vessel Stowage Codes 13 and 148 are proposed to be 
added for this entry (PG I, II, and III) . . . There is no PG III entry 
for this PSN per the 10-1-13 version of 49 CFR. In addition, the text 
listed for the PG II and III entries in the proposed HMT is actually 
the same as the above HMT entry for UN2923--Corrosive Solids, Toxic, 
N.O.S. . . .'' The commenter is correct. The PG III entry has been 
removed from the HMT and the PG II entry has been updated to include 
codes 13 and 148.
    ``Ferrosilicon (UN1408) Per the table of 176.84 changes, Vessel 
Stowage Codes 13 and 148 are proposed to be added for this entry . . . 
The addition of 13 is not necessary as this entry already lists a 
Vessel Stowage Code 13 in column 10B per the 10-1-13 version of 49 CFR

association with this entry and has been removed from the table of 
changes.

IMO in amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code. As a result PHMSA is revising 
column (10A) to read C.

Code 25 is not listed in Column 10B in the proposed HMT for this entry 
. . . Per the Table of 176.84 Changes, 40 was to be removed and 25 was 
to be added for this entry . . .'' The commenter is correct. Code 40

    ``Organic Peroxide Type F, Solid, Temperature Controlled (UN3120) 
Per the table of 176.84 changes, Vessel Stowage Code 40 was to be

II entry for this entry is listing IP2 as a Special Provision in Column 
7 and D versus E in Column 10A . . . These changes are not present in

IMO in amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code. Further review of the change 
made at IMO indicates the correct stowage category to be E. As a result 
PHMSA is revising column 10A to read E.
    ``Self-Reactive Liquid Type B, Temperature Controlled (UN3231) 
Vessel Stowage Code 25 is added in Column 10B in the proposed HMT . . . 
There is no entry in the Table of 176.84 Changes . . . for this PSN.'' 
DGAC is correct and an entry for this PSN has been added to the table 
of changes.
    ``Sodium Peroxide (UN1504) Per the Table of 176.84 changes, Vessel 
Stowage Codes 13 and 148 are proposed to be added for this entry . . . 
The addition of 13 is not necessary as this entry already lists a 
Vessel Stowage Code 13 in Column 10B per the 10-1-13 version of 49 CFR. 
The Vessel Stowage Location listed in Column 10A in the Docket HMT is C 
. . . In the 10-1-13 Version of 49 CFR, the Vessel Stowage Location 
listed in Column 10A is B.'' Code 13 is removed from the table of 
changes. Although not specifically identified in the preamble to the 
NPRM, the stowage category for this UN number has been amended by the 
IMO in amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code. As a result PHMSA is revising 
column (10A) to read C.
    ``Sodium Superoxide (UN2547) In the proposed HMT, Vessel Stowage 
Codes 13, 52, 66, 75, and 148 are listed in Column 10B. Per the 10-1-13 
version of 49 CFR, 13, 52, 66, and 75 are listed as Vessel Stowage 
Codes in Column 10B. This entry is not listed in the Table of 176.84 
Changes . . . The Vessel Stowage Location listed in Column 10A is D . . 
. In the 10-1-13 Version of 49 CFR, the Vessel Stowage Location listed 
in column 10A is E.'' DGAC is correct that code 148 was added by the 
IMO and thus, has been added to the table of changes. Although not 
specifically identified in the preamble to the NPRM, the stowage 
category for this UN number has been amended by the IMO in amendment 
37-14 of the IMDG Code. As a result PHMSA is revising column (10A) to 
read D.
    ``Strontium Peroxide (UN1509) Per the Table of 176.84 Changes, 
Vessel Stowage Codes 13 and 148 are proposed to be added for this entry 
. . . The addition of 13 is not necessary as this entry already lists a

. . . In the 10-1-13 Version of 49 CFR, the Vessel Stowage Location 
listed in Column 10A is A.'' Code 13 has been removed from the table of 
changes. Although not specifically identified in the preamble to the 
NPRM, the stowage category for this UN number has been amended by the 
IMO in amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code. As a result PHMSA is revising 
column (10A) to read C.
    ``Zinc Peroxide (UN1516) Per the Table of 176.84 Changes, Vessel 
Stowage Codes 13 and 148 are proposed to be added for this entry. The 
addition of 13 is not necessary as this entry already lists a Vessel

Vessel Stowage Location listed in column 10A in the Docket HMT is C . . 
. In the 10-1-13 version of 49 CFR, the Vessel Stowage Location listed

changes. Although not specifically identified in the preamble to the 
NPRM, the stowage category for this UN number has been amended by the 
IMO in amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code. As a result PHMSA is revising 
column (10A) to read C.
Appendix B to Sec.  172.101
    Appendix B to Sec.  172.101 lists Marine Pollutants regulated under 
the HMR. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising the List of Marine 
Pollutants by adding sixty-two new entries consistent with the IMDG 
Code. These changes include those substances that, by virtue of meeting 
the Group of Experts on the Scientific Aspects of Marine Environmental 
Protection (GESAMP) defining criteria for marine pollutants, were 
either assigned a ``P'' in the dangerous goods list or identified in 
the alphabetical index to amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code. The entry 
``Chlorotoluenes (meta-;para-)'' is removed based on its removal from 
the IMDG Code.
    PHMSA received two comments from the ACC regarding our proposed 
addition of one specific material, dodecene, to the list of marine 
pollutants. In its first comment, the ACC requests a 30 day extension 
of the comment period to better understand ``dodecene's place on other 
lists referenced in the proposed rule.'' ACC notes that it would use 
the time to coordinate with industry to better understand the 
information contained in the dodecene Regulation on Registration, 
Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) 
dossiers. PHMSA is denying the ACC's request for a 30 day extension of 
the

[[Page 1093]]

comment period for this rulemaking as the revision to include dodecene 
in the Marine Pollutant List is consistent with our standard practice 
of aligning Appendix B with the indicative list of marine pollutants 
found in the IMDG Code. In its second comment, the ACC notes that the 
use of the name ``dodecene'' in both the IMDG Code and PHMSA proposed 
rule makes it unclear exactly what substance is being regulated. When 
manufactured, ``dodecene'' may represent a number of Chemical Abstracts 
Service (CAS) numbers and different chemical properties. In other 
words, this single description of dodecene may not reflect what the 
Panel members currently manufacture and ship. The ACC also notes that 
the REACH registration of a close analog of dodecene, 1-dodecene/dodec-
1-ene, indicates that dodecene would not meet the criteria of a Marine 
Pollutant, as set forth in the PHMSA list, based on aquatic toxicity 
data. The REACH dossier indicates ``conclusive but not sufficient for 
classification'' on both acute and chronic environmental categories 
associated with this compound. The inclusion of all entries proposed 
for addition in the NPRM were thoroughly vetted by several sub-
committees of the International Maritime Organization prior to adoption 
into amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code. The GESAMP data assigns all 
dodecene isomers a B1 numerical rating of 4. This rating of 4 indicates 
acute aquatic toxicity, and thus merits inclusion of dodecene to the 
list of marine pollutants in Appendix B to Sec.  172.101.
Section 172.102 Special Provisions
    Section 172.102 lists special provisions applicable to the 
transportation of specific hazardous materials. Special provisions 
contain packaging requirements, prohibitions, and exceptions applicable 
to particular quantities or forms of hazardous materials. PHMSA is 
adopting the following revisions to Sec.  172.102, special provisions:
Special Provision 28
    Special provision 28 states that the dihydrated sodium salt of 
dichloroisocyanuric acid is not subject to the requirements of this 
subchapter. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising special provision 28 
to convey that the dihydrated sodium salt of dichloroisocyanuric acid 
does not meet the definition of a Division 5.1 (oxidizer) and is not 
subject to the requirements of the subchapter unless it meets the 
criteria for inclusion in another Class or Division, such as Class 9, 
environmentally hazardous substance. Some formulations of the 
dihydrated sodium salt of dichloroisocyanuric acid meet the criteria 
for classification as an environmentally hazardous substance.
Special Provision 52
    Special provision 52 authorizes use of the HMT entry ``UN2067, 
Ammonium nitrate based fertilizer'' for substances that do not exhibit 
explosive properties of Class 1 when tested in accordance with Test 
Series 1 and 2 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part I. In this 
final rule, PHMSA is revising special provision 52 by removing the 
requirement to test in accordance with Test Series 1 because Test 
Series 2 determines whether such properties are indeed those of Class 
1, not Test Series 1.
Special Provision 147
    This special provision describes the composition of the material 
for which the use of the HMT entry ``UN3375, Ammonium nitrate emulsion 
or Ammonium nitrate suspension or Ammonium nitrate gel, intermediate 
for blasting explosives'' is authorized and prohibits the material from 
being classified and transported unless approved by the Associate 
Administrator. Special provision 147 requires that these substances 
must satisfactorily pass Test Series 8 of the UN Manual of Tests and 
Criteria, Part I, Section 18. Test Series 8 contains four test types. 
Tests 8(a), (b) and (c) are used for classification purposes while Test 
8(d) is used to assess suitability for transport in portable tanks. The 
use of this entry (UN 3375) therefore requires only that Tests 8(a), 
(b) and (c) are satisfactorily passed. In this final rule, PHMSA is 
revising special provision 147 by clarifying that Tests 8(a), (b) and 
(c), not the entire Test Series 8, are required for use in 
classification and subsequent approval by the Associate Administrator. 
PHMSA received one comment from IME in support of this revision.
Special Provision 160
    Special provision 160 is presently assigned to ``UN3268, Air bag 
inflators, or Air bag modules, or Seat-belt pretensioners'' in Class 9. 
Special provision 160 includes the requirement that air bag inflators 
and modules must be tested in accordance with Test series 6 (c) of Part 
I of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria. In this final rule, PHMSA is 
revising special provision 160 in conjunction with revising the proper 
shipping name for UN3268 to ``Safety devices, electrically initiated.'' 
The entry is revised to clarify that it applies to safety devices used 
in vehicles including vessels and aircraft, and pyromechanical devices 
that are added to the list of authorized devices. The development of 
safety products has seen significant progress since the introduction of 
UN3268 and the range of current products extends beyond what can 
presently be assigned to UN3268. Some of the newer safety products 
include elements that are actuated by the electrical signal of the 
crash sensor (e.g. pyromechanical devices). Examples include: Devices 
that interrupt the electrical connection in case of emergency by 
disconnecting the main power cable in the vehicle from the battery to 
prevent short circuit and consequentially minimize the risk of fire in 
the vehicle; and actuators which are used for active headrests or for 
pedestrian protection to release special hinges of the engine hood. In 
addition, PHMSA is clarifying that this entry does not apply to life 
saving appliances described in Sec.  173.219 (UN Nos. 2990 and 3072).
    PHMSA received comments from Key Safety Systems, TK Holdings Inc., 
and TRW Automotive requesting that special provision 160 be revised to 
note that if the air bag inflator unit and or pyromechanical device 
satisfactorily passes the series 6(c) test, it is not necessary to 
repeat the test on the air bag module. PHMSA is not convinced the 
requested change is necessary. The purpose of the exception from 
testing in this special provision is to state that air bag modules do 
not need to be tested if the air bag inflators were tested. Air bag 
inflators are any article used to inflate a module, which includes 
inflators that use compressed gas, gas generant tablets, or a hybrid 
design. Pyromechanical devices are generally piston type devices and 
would not be used to inflate modules. Therefore the addition of 
``pyromechanical devices'' to the sentence in SP160 excepting air bag 
modules from being re-tested would not be appropriate.
Special Provision 161
    Special provision 161 required that for domestic transportation the 
alternate shipping description ``Articles, pyrotechnic for technical 
purposes'' be used to describe air bag inflators, air bag modules and 
seat-belt pretensioners (UN0503) meeting the criteria for a Division 
1.4G explosive. This was done to ensure a different shipping name was 
used to describe these articles to differentiate them from air bag 
inflators, air bag modules and seat-belt pretensioners (UN3268) in 
Class 9. In this final rule, PHMSA, consistent with

[[Page 1094]]

the UN Model Regulations, is adopting new proper shipping names for 
these items, ``Safety devices'' (UN3268) for those articles assigned to 
Class 9, and ``Safety Devices, pyrotechnic'' (UN0503) for those 
articles assigned to Division 1.4G. Since the proper shipping names for 
these items would no longer be the same, there would be no need to use 
a different proper shipping name for these articles assigned to 
Division 1.4G. Therefore the need for this special provision would be 
obsolete and we are deleting it from the regulations and deleting its 
reference from the UN0503 entry in the HMT. Under this revision, for 
domestic transportation, air bag inflators, air bag modules and seat-
belt pretensioners (UN0503) meeting the criteria for a Division 1.4G 
explosive, that are currently described as ``Articles, pyrotechnic for 
technical purposes'' would be described as ``Safety devices, 
pyrotechnic'' (UN0503).
Special Provision 238
    Special provision 238 addresses the shipment of neutron radiation 
detectors. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising special provision 238 
to align with the UN Model Regulations special provision 373 by 
expanding the transport conditions for neutron radiation detectors and 
radiation detection systems containing such detectors. Paragraph a. is 
restructured into: (a)(1), general transport requirements; (a)(2), 
requirements for radiation detectors transported as individual 
components; and (a)(3), requirements for completed neutron radiation 
detection systems containing detectors. Consistent with the UN Model 
Regulations, PHMSA is adopting the following revisions to the transport 
conditions: [1] In (a)(1), increase the total amount of gas authorized 
per detector from 12.8 grams to 13 grams; clarify that the minimum 
burst pressure is demonstrated by design type qualification testing; 
and add a new leaktightness standard; [2] in (a)(2), clarify that in 
addition to being packed in a strong outer package, that the completed 
package must be capable of withstanding a drop of 1.8 meters (6-foot) 
without leakage of gas contents; and increase the total amount of gas 
from all detectors per outer packaging from 51.2 grams to 52 grams; and 
[3], in (a)(3), add a new requirement that for completed neutron 
radiation detection systems, the detectors must be contained in a 
strong sealed outer casing; and adding a new requirement that the 
completed system must be capable of withstanding a 1.8 meter (6-foot) 
drop test without leakage unless a system's outer casing affords 
equivalent protection.
    PHMSA received a comment from James Lynch asking how the 1 x 
10-\10\ cm\3\/s leaktightness prior to filling limit was 
arrived at and proposing an alternative limit amount. The limit, as 
proposed and adopted, was determined by the UN Committee of Experts on 
the Transport of Dangerous Goods to provide an appropriate level of 
safety to ensure essentially no gas will leak from the detector once 
filled. In the interest harmonization is maintaining the limit as 
proposed in the NPRM. Mr. Lynch also commented that in paragraph 
(a)(1)(iii) that the 1800 kPa should specify ``gauge.'' While Mr. Lynch 
is correct that paragraph (a)(1)(iii) is applicable pressure at the 
``gauge,'' in the interest of harmonization PHMSA is maintaining the 
revisions as proposed in the NPRM.
    PHMSA received a comment from Bechtel Plant Machinery Inc. 
requesting a 90 day extension of the final rule comment period to 
further review the logistical and technical impact of these proposed 
regulation changes for the transportation of neutron radiation 
detectors. PHMSA is denying Bechtel Plant Machinery Inc.'s request for 
an extension of the comment period for this final rule. We are revising 
the HMR to maintain alignment with international standards by 
incorporating various amendments, including revision of the transport 
conditions for neutron radiation detectors in special provision 238. In 
addition, the revisions to special provision 238 do not invalidate 
existing special permits or de minimis interpretations issued by PHMSA. 
Further, for reasons mentioned elsewhere in this rulemaking, it is 
imperative that a harmonization rulemaking be published on or near 
January 1st, 2015 to facilitate unencumbered commerce. It is important 
to note that the transport provisions for these detectors in the ICAO 
TI, which this final rule harmonizes with, will become effective 
January 1st, 2015.
Special Provision 342
    This special provision, assigned to ``UN1040, Ethylene oxide or 
Ethylene oxide with nitrogen'' allows sterilization devices containing 
ethylene oxide, conforming to the conditions in the special provision, 
and packaged in accordance with Sec.  173.4a of the HMR to be offered 
for transportation and transported by all modes even though Column (9A) 
of the Sec.  172.101 HMT lists the material as forbidden by passenger 
aircraft.
    Consistent with the ICAO TI, in this final rule PHMSA is further 
clarifying that irrespective of both Columns (9A) and (9B) of the Sec.  
172.101 HMT listing the material as forbidden, ethylene oxide 
conforming to the conditions in the special provision is eligible for 
air transport. Specifically, we are supplementing the language in this 
special provision ``irrespective of the restriction of Sec.  
173.4a(b)'' with ``and the indication of ``forbidden'' in columns (9A) 
and (9B) of the Sec.  172.101 table.''
Special Provision 362
    Special provision 362 specifies when a material can be considered a 
chemical under pressure. Specifically, the special provision states 
that classification of these materials is to be based on hazard 
characteristics of the components in the propellant, the liquid, or the 
solid forms. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising special provision 
362 by adding a new paragraph (f) to clarify that chemicals under 
pressure containing components forbidden for transport on both 
passenger and cargo aircraft must not be transported by air. PHMSA 
received one comment from DGAC noting that as proposed special 
provision 362 has two paragraph d's. PHMSA has amended the final rule 
text to ensure proper paragraph sequencing.
Special Provision 367
    A new special provision 367 is added to clarify that the proper 
shipping name ``Paint related material'' or ``Printing ink related 
material'' may be used for consignments of packages containing both 
``Paint'' and ``Paint related material'' or ``Printing Ink'' and 
``Printing ink related material'' in the same package and sharing the 
same identification number (UN 1210, UN 1263, UN 3066, UN 3469, or UN 
3470). For example, ``UN1263, Paint including paint, lacquer, enamel, 
stain, shellac solutions, varnish, polish, liquid filler, and liquid 
lacquer base'' and ``UN1263, Paint related material'' contained in the 
same package, may be consigned under the entry ``UN1263, Paint related 
material including paint thinning, drying, removing, or reducing 
compound.'' Paint mainly consists of resin, pigment and solvent. 
Thinning compounds consist primarily of solvent as well. Thus, under 
the same UN entry, there is no difference between ``Paint'' and ``Paint 
related material'' with regard to transport requirements. PHMSA 
received one comment from COSTHA providing support for this new 
provision. COSTHA noted that this provision will greatly enhance the 
efficiencies of businesses transporting these materials.

[[Page 1095]]

Special Provision 368
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adding new special provision 368 and 
assigning it to ``UN2910, Radioactive material, excepted package-
limited quantity of material'' to clarify that in the case of non-
fissile or fissile-excepted uranium hexafluoride, the material must be 
classified under UN3507 or UN2978.
Special Provision 369
    The 18th Revised Edition of the UN Model Regulations has adopted a 
new proper shipping name of ``UN3507, Uranium hexafluoride, radioactive 
material, excepted package, less than 0.1 kg per package, non-fissile 
or fissile-excepted'', to address small quantities of uranium 
hexafluoride containing corrosive properties, thus a new special 
provision is necessary in the HMR. In this final rule, PHMSA assigns 
special provision 369 to UN3507 to specify a primary hazard of Class 8 
with subsidiary risk of Class 7, subject to certain conditions.
Special Provision 370
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adding new special provision 370 and 
assigning it to the revised HMT entry ``UN0222, Ammonium Nitrate.'' In 
the NPRM, PHMSA proposed revising the proper shipping name for UN0222 
by removing the qualifying italicized text assigned to UN0222 and 
including it in this special provision. Based on a comment submitted by 
IME and discussed in the section-by-section review of amendments to 
Column (2) of the HMT, we are not moving the qualifying italicized text 
from the proper shipping name to the special provision in this final 
rule. In this final rule, we are maintaining paragraph b. of special 
provision 370 as proposed in the NPRM to clarify that ammonium nitrate 
with not more than 0.2% combustible substances, including any organic 
substance calculated as carbon, to the exclusion of any added 
substance, that gives a positive result when tested in accordance with 
Test Series 2 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part I must be 
assigned to UN0222.
Special Provision 371
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adding a new special provision 371 and 
assigning it to ``UN3164, Articles, pressurized pneumatic or hydraulic 
containing non-flammable gas.'' This special provision sets forth the 
requirements for confetti-shooters pressurized with gas instead of 
pyrotechnics. The shooter consists in principle, of a jacket of 
cardboard, the pressurized receptacle filled with compressed air or 
nitrogen, a lock mechanism made of plastics, a plug of rubber and a 
metal cap for closing the receptacle, and different types of confetti. 
By turning a ring, or the bottom part of the shooter, a mechanism is 
unlocked and the pressurized gas is discharged so that the confetti is 
shot away for a few meters. This type of shooter does not contain any 
amount of explosives and therefore cannot be assigned to Class 1, and 
does not meet the requirements for gas cartridges or small pressure 
receptacles. The requirements set forth in the special provision ensure 
the same level of safety as for confetti-shooters with pyrotechnics.
Special Provision 372
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adding a new special provision 372 and 
assigning it to the new HMT entry ``UN3508, Capacitor, asymmetric.'' 
This special provision states that this entry applies to asymmetric 
capacitors with an energy storage capacity greater than 0.3 watt hours 
(Wh) and that asymmetric capacitors with an energy storage capacity of 
0.3 Wh or less are not subject to the requirements of this subchapter. 
This special provision also provides that nickel-carbon asymmetric 
capacitors containing Class 8 alkaline electrolytes must be transported 
as UN 2795, Batteries, wet, filled with alkali, electric storage. PHMSA 
received one comment from COSTHA supporting the amendment as proposed 
noting that this provision now gives clear guidance on how 
manufacturers are to ship these articles.
Special Provision A60
    Special provision A60 permits ``UN2014, Hydrogen peroxide, aqueous 
solution,'' to be transported in excepted quantities. The special 
provision authorizes packagings to include a vent to permit the slow 
escape of gas (i.e. not more than 0.1 mL/hour per 30 mL inner packaging 
at 20 [deg]C (68 [deg]F) produced from gradual decomposition. As 
venting is permitted, the requirements of Sec. Sec.  173.24(g)(1) and 
173.27(c) are impracticable and should not apply. To address the issue, 
the ICAO DGP adopted a proposal to clarify that these general 
requirements prohibiting venting should not be applicable. In this 
final rule, we are harmonizing with the ICAO TI and waiving the general 
requirements of Sec. Sec.  173.24(g)(1) and 173.27(c). Special 
provision A60 is revised accordingly.
Special Provision A61
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adding a new special provision A61 and 
assigning it to the HMT entries ``UN 3107, Organic peroxide type E, 
liquid'' and ``UN 3109, Organic peroxide type F, liquid.'' PHMSA is 
aligning with Packing Instruction 570 of the ICAO TI to allow for 
limited venting of oxygen in the case of specialized peroxyacetic acid 
packagings when transported by cargo aircraft, provided the packaging 
requirements of this special provision are met. It was reported to the 
ICAO DGP that peroxyacetic acid was commonly used as a sterilizer for 
health care purposes and that there is a need to transport the material 
by air for use in sterilizing medical equipment using custom 
packagings. The basis for the requirements that these specialized 
packagings must meet originated from exemptions to permit the transport 
of this substance in small containers approved by several national 
authorities. The inclusion of this new special provision will eliminate 
the need for these exemptions and facilitate international transport.
IBC Codes and IP Codes
    Section 172.102(c)(4) prescribes situations where Large Packagings 
are authorized. In this final rule, PHMSA is authorizing the use of 
large packagings for lithium batteries without assigning IB3 or IB8 to 
the corresponding entries in the Sec.  172.101 Table by adding a 
reference to Sec.  173.185 before the reference to Sec.  173.225(e). 
See Section 173.185 Lithium batteries for a detailed discussion of the 
proposed a use of rigid large packagings for lithium batteries. In this 
final rule, PHMSA is authorizing the use of large packagings for 
lithium batteries without assigning IB3 or IB8 to the corresponding 
entries in the Sec.  172.101 Table by revising by adding a reference to 
Sec.  173.185 before the reference to Sec.  173.225(e). See Section 
173.185 Lithium batteries for a detailed discussion of the proposed a 
use of rigid large packagings for lithium batteries.
    In two final rules published in the Federal Register on January 19, 
2011 (76 FR 3308; HM-215K) and January 7, 2013 (78 FR 988; HM-215L) the 
Table 1 (IBC Codes) in paragraph (c)(4) were editorially revised to 
remove UN Specifications 31A, 31B, 31N, 31H1, 31H2, 31HZ1, and 31HZ2 
from IBC Codes IB4 through IB8. The revisions were consistent with 
amendments to the UN Model Regulations that removed the specifications 
from the indicated codes in the table because IBC Codes IB4 through IB8 
are assigned to solids, whereas, UN Specifications 31A, 31B, 31N, 31H1, 
31H2, 31HZ1, and 31HZ2 are authorized for transportation of liquids and 
IBC Codes IB1 through IB3 and are assigned to liquid materials only. 
Information presented to the UN Committee of Experts on the Transport

[[Page 1096]]

of Dangerous Goods (UNCOE) in this last biennium indicated that the 
removal of the above UN Specifications from IBC Codes IB4 through IB8 
has created a problem. Prior to implementation of these revisions, 
certain liquid IBC types were used to transport powdery solids and 
solids that become liquid under conditions of transport. These solids 
may be loaded and unloaded from the IBC in liquid form raising the 
question of whether the remaining IBCs, which are intended for gravity 
or pressure discharge, are appropriate. The UN sub-committee adopted a 
proposal to reinstate the IBCs that were previously authorized. In this 
final rule, we are harmonizing with the UN Model Regulations by 
revising the IBC Codes IB4 through IB8 in paragraph (c)(4), Table 1 
(IBC Codes) to reinstate IBC's previously authorized.
    A new IP Code 16 is added and assigned to UN3375. Consistent with 
international regulations, this special provision would authorize 
require IBCs of type 31A and 31N if approved by the Associate 
Administrator.
Special Provision TP47
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adding a new special provision TP47 
and assigning it to the organometallic substance HMT entries UN3393 
through UN3399. The special provision waives the 2.5 year internal 
inspection for portable tanks used for the transport of liquid and 
solid organometallic substances provided that the portable tank remains 
in the dedicated service of transporting organometallic substances. 
However, all other required 2.5 year inspections and tests would still 
be performed, as well as the full 5 year periodic test and inspection, 
which would include an internal inspection.
    Before an internal inspection can be performed, the tank must be 
cleaned and purged. In this process, it is difficult to ensure that 
water, impurities, or contaminants introduced during cleaning are fully 
removed before organometallic substances are again introduced into the 
tank, which could potentially result in a dangerous reaction or have an 
effect on the purity of the product. Since these organometallic 
substances are fully compatible with and are not corrosive to the 
materials of construction used in such tanks, the likelihood that an 
internal inspection will reveal any corrosion, pitting or other 
deterioration of the tank is unlikely. To increase safety and avoid the 
risk of a dangerous reaction or product contamination the 2.5 year 
internal inspection is waived, provided the portable tank remains in 
the dedicated service of transporting organometallic substances and the 
tank does exhibit damaged or corroded areas, leakage, or other 
conditions that indicate a deficiency in accordance with Sec.  
180.605(f). PHMSA received one comment from Dow Chemical in support of 
this special provision.
Section 172.204
    This section describes the text that must be contained within the 
shipper's certification on a shipping paper. PHMSA received a comment 
from Gregory Sutherland noting that PHMSA did not propose in the NPRM 
to align the text with the requirements of the UN Model Regulations and 
the IMDG Code in Section 172.204(a)(2) to allow the shipper's 
certification to be either below or above the required elements of a 
shipping paper. PHMSA agrees that harmonizing provisions for shipper's 
certification placement and language, by providing the allowance to 
place the certification either below or above other required elements, 
is necessary to facilitate international commerce. As a result, PHMSA 
is adding a note following Sec.  172.204(a)(2) to allow substitution of 
the word ``below'' for the currently authorized ``above'' if 
appropriate.
Section 172.315
    In this final rule, PHMSA is revising the specifications for the 
limited quantity markings prescribed in Sec.  172.315(a)(2) and (b)(2) 
to be consistent with the revised specifications in the UN Model 
Regulations. To promote uniformity and consistency with the UN Model 
Regulations we are allowing manufacturers and printers necessary time 
to produce markings that conform to the revised specifications, and to 
deplete supplies of existing markings. PHMSA is adding a transitional 
period to authorize a limited quantity marking that is in conformance 
with the requirements of the regulations in effect on December 31, 
2014, to be used until December 31, 2016. PHMSA received one comment 
from DGAC noting that many packages, especially those containing 
consumer products, may be permanently marked with the limited quantity 
marking and remain in the distribution cycle for an extended period of 
time. DGAC recommended that a provision be added which authorizes 
limited quantity markings conforming to the current requirements and 
permanently affixed to a package to be authorized for the useful life 
of the package. PHMSA agrees that there may be packages or packagings 
marked for an indefinite period of time and is adding a new paragraph 
(a)(2)(ii) and (b)(2)(ii) to Sec.  172.315 to read ``For domestic 
transportation, a packaging marked prior to January 1, 2017 and in 
conformance with the requirements of this paragraph in effect on 
December 31, 2014, may continue in service until the end of its useful 
life.''
Section 172.317
    To promote the uniformity of the ``Keep Away From Heat'' handling 
mark throughout the international transportation community, the ICAO 
Technical Instructions have adopted revisions to clarify and 
standardize the specifications for this hazard communications element. 
In this final rule, PHMSA is revising the specifications in Sec.  
172.317(b) to be consistent with the revised specifications in the ICAO 
TI. Thus, we are adopting provisions to allow manufacturers and 
printers necessary time to produce markings that conform to the revised 
specifications, and to deplete supplies of existing markings. We are 
also adopting a transitional period to authorize a ``Keep Away From 
Heat'' handling mark that is in conformance with the requirements of 
the regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, to be used until 
December 31, 2016. For domestic transportation, we are authorizing a 
packaging marked with a ``Keep Away From Heat'' handling mark prior to 
January 1, 2017 and in conformance with the requirements of the 
regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, to continue in service 
until the end of its useful life.
Section 172.322
    In this final rule, PHMSA is clarifying in Sec.  172.322(a)(2) and 
(b), that the marking requirements for marine pollutants are required 
unless otherwise provided for in the regulations.
    In Sec.  172.322(e), PHMSA is deleting the obsolete date of January 
14, 2010 for the requirements for the marine pollutant mark.
    To promote the uniformity of the marine pollutant mark throughout 
the international transportation community, the UN Model Regulations 
have adopted revisions to clarify and standardize the specifications 
for this hazard communications element. In this final rule, PHMSA is 
revising Sec.  172.322(e) to be consistent with the revised 
specifications for this marking in the UN Model Regulations. We are 
also adopting a transitional period to authorize a marine pollutant 
mark that is in conformance with the requirements of the regulations in 
effect on December 31, 2014, to be used until December 31, 2016, so 
that manufacturers and printers will have the necessary time to deplete

[[Page 1097]]

existing supply and to produce markings that conform to the revised 
specifications. For domestic transportation, we are authorizing a 
packaging marked with a marine pollutant mark prior to January 1, 2017 
and in conformance with the requirements of the regulations in effect 
on December 31, 2014, to continue in service until the end of its 
useful life.
Section 172.326
    Section 172.326 prescribes marking requirements for portable tanks. 
PHMSA received a comment from Edward Altemos noting that in the NPRM 
PHMSA did not propose to harmonize this section with recent changes 
adopted into Amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code. Amendment 37-14 of the 
IMDG Code adopted a reduced size proper shipping name exception for 
portable tanks having a capacity of less than 3,000 L (792.52 gallons). 
Prior to this amendment proper shipping name markings on all portable 
tanks were required to be at least 65 mm (2.5 inches) high. Mr. Atlemos 
requests PHMSA harmonize with the IMDG Code on this issue. PHMSA agrees 
and is amending paragraph (a) accordingly.
Section 172.327
    To promote the uniformity of markings, in this final rule, PHMSA is 
revising and clarifying the specifications for the ``petroleum sour 
crude oil'' mark prescribed in Sec.  172.327(a) to be consistent with 
the revised specifications for markings in the UN Model Regulations. 
Also, to allow manufacturers and printers necessary time to produce 
markings that conform to the revised specifications, and to allow for 
the depletion of supplies of existing markings, we are adopting a 
transitional period to authorize a ``petroleum sour crude oil'' mark 
that is in conformance with the requirements of the regulations in 
effect on December 31, 2014, to be used until December 31, 2016. For 
domestic transportation, we are authorizing a packaging marked with a 
``petroleum sour crude oil mark'' prior to January 1, 2017 and in 
conformance with the requirements of the regulations in effect on 
December 31, 2014, to continue in service until the end of its useful 
life.
Section 172.407
    The UN Model Regulations have adopted revisions to clarify and 
standardize the specifications for labels to promote the uniformity of 
hazard communications labels throughout the international 
transportation community. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising Sec.  
172.407(c) to be consistent with UN Model Regulations. In addition, 
PHMSA is revising (d)(2)(iii) that provides a color alternative for the 
symbol on the ORGANIC PEROXIDE LABEL to be consistent with the UN Model 
Regulations. Also to be consistent with the UN Model Regulations, and 
to allow manufacturers and printers necessary time to produce labels 
that conform to the revised specifications, and to allow for the 
depletion of supplies of existing labels, we are adopting a 
transitional period to authorize a label that is in conformance with 
the requirements of the regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, to 
be used until December 31, 2016.
    PHMSA received one comment from DGAC noting that many packages may 
be permanently labeled and remain in service for an extended period of 
time. DGAC recommended that a provision be added which authorizes 
labels conforming to the current requirements and permanently affixed 
to a package to be authorized for the life of the package. PHMSA agrees 
that there may be packages or packagings labeled for an indefinite 
period of time and in response is adding a new paragraph (c)(1)(iv) to 
Sec.  172.407 to read ``For domestic transportation, a packaging 
labeled prior to January 1, 2017 and in conformance with the 
requirements of this paragraph in effect on December 31, 2014, may 
continue in service until the end of its useful life.''
    Finally, PHMSA is adding paragraph (d)(2)(iv) to permit, consistent 
with the UN Model Regulations, a FLAMMABLE GAS label to be displayed on 
cylinders and gas cartridges for liquefied petroleum gases, where the 
symbol may be shown in the background color of the receptacle if 
adequate contrast is provided.
Section 172.512
    The placarding requirements for freight containers and aircraft 
unit load devices are described in Sec.  172.512. The reference in 
Sec.  172.512(a)(3) to part 7; chapter 2, section 2.7 of the ICAO TI in 
this paragraph is inaccurate. This reference became inaccurate because 
part 7; chapter 2, section 2.7 of the ICAO TI now refers to replacement 
of labels, whereas section 2.8 refers to identification of unit load 
devices containing dangerous goods. PHMSA is revising this paragraph 
for the correct reference to cite part 7; chapter 2, section 2.8.
Section 172.519
    The UN Model Regulations have adopted revisions to clarify and 
standardize the specifications for placards. In this final rule, PHMSA 
is revising the specifications for placards prescribed in Sec.  
172.519(c) to be consistent with the UN Model Regulations. 
Additionally, to allow manufacturers and printers necessary time to 
produce placards that conform to the revised specifications, and to 
allow for the depletion of supplies of existing placards, we are 
providing a transitional period. This transitional period authorizes a 
placard that is in conformance with the requirements of the regulations 
in effect on December 31, 2014, to be used until December 31, 2016. 
Finally, PHMSA realizes that in domestic transportation, numerous 
placards of a semi-permanent nature are in service. PHMSA is allowing, 
that for domestic transportation, a placard manufactured prior to 
January 1, 2017, in conformance with the requirements of the 
regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, may continue in domestic 
service until the end of its useful life provided the color tolerances 
are maintained and are in accordance with the display requirements of 
the subchapter.

Part 173

Section 173.2a
    Section 173.2a outlines classification requirements for materials 
having more than one hazard. In this final rule, PHMSA is amending 
paragraph (a)(1) to note that shipments of ``UN3507, Uranium 
hexafluoride, radioactive material, excepted package, less than 0.1 kg 
per package'' are not required to apply the radioactive hazard as the 
primary hazard. This change is adopted to incorporate the 
transportation provisions for excepted packages of uranium hexafluoride 
adopted in the 18th Revised Edition of the UN Model Regulations, the 
IMDG Code and the ICAO TI.
Section 173.3
    The UN Model Regulations have adopted revisions to clarify and 
standardize the specifications for markings. In this final rule, PHMSA 
is revising the specifications for markings for salvage packagings 
prescribed in Sec.  173.3(c)(3); salvage cylinders prescribed in Sec.  
173.3(d)(3); and prescribing requirements for the marking of the 
proposed large salvage packaging in Sec.  173.3(f) to be consistent 
with the revised specifications for salvage packaging markings in the 
UN Model Regulations. Also, to be consistent with the UN Model 
Regulations, and to allow shippers necessary time to implement the new 
marking requirements, we are adopting a transitional period to 
authorize a

[[Page 1098]]

marking that is in conformance with the requirements of the regulations 
in effect on December 31, 2014, to be used until December 31, 2016. 
PHMSA also realizes that salvage packagings and salvage cylinders are 
typically marked in a durable manner. PHMSA is authorizing, for 
domestic transportation, a salvage packaging or a salvage cylinder that 
is marked prior to January 1, 2017 in conformance with the requirements 
of the regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, to continue in 
service until the end of its useful life. PHMSA received one comment 
from RIPA supporting the transition period for ``already fabricated and 
durably marked salvage packagings,'' but requesting an additional 
transition year for embossed packagings. PHMSA notes however, that as 
is being adopted in this final rule a salvage cylinder that is marked 
prior to January 1, 2017 in conformance with the requirements of the 
regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, may continue in service 
until the end of its useful life.
    Also PHMSA is adding a new paragraph (f) to Sec.  173.3 authorizing 
and prescribing the use of large salvage packaging for all modes of 
transportation other than air. PHMSA received one comment from RIPA 
providing general support for the amendments as proposed.
Section 173.4a
    The UN Model Regulations have been revised to clarify and 
standardize the specifications for the marking of excepted quantities 
of packaged hazardous materials. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising 
Sec.  173.4a(g)(2) to be consistent with the revised specifications for 
these markings in the UN Model Regulations. We are adding a transition 
period so that manufacturers and printers can produce markings that 
conform to the revised specifications, and deplete existing supplies. 
An excepted quantities marking that is in conformance with the 
requirements of the regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, can be 
used until December 31, 2016. For domestic transportation, we are 
authorizing a packaging marked with an excepted quantities marking 
prior to January 1, 2017 and in conformance with the requirements of 
the regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, to continue in service 
until the end of its useful life.
Section 173.9
    In this final rule, PHMSA is revising the specifications for the 
fumigant marking prescribed in Sec.  173.9(e) to be consistent with the 
revised specifications for these markings in the UN Model Regulations. 
Also consistent with the UN Model Regulations, to allow manufacturers 
and printers necessary time to produce markings that conform to the 
revised specifications, and to allow for the depletion of supplies of 
existing markings, we are authorizing a transitional period to 
authorize a fumigant marking that is in conformance with the 
requirements of the regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, to be 
used until December 31, 2016.
Section 173.11
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adding a new Sec.  173.11 that 
provides exceptions to the regulations for certain light bulbs 
containing hazardous materials based on their transport conditions, the 
quantity of hazardous materials contained in each light bulb or 
package, and the type of packaging. This new section is consistent with 
newly adopted provisions in the UN Model Regulations. In the NPRM, 
PHMSA proposed using the term ``lamp'' in this section for consistency 
with the language contained in the UN Model Regulations. However, a 
reference to ``light bulbs'' remained in Sec.  173.307(a)(6). PHMSA 
received one comment from Alaska Airlines noting that this may be 
confusing for shippers and suggested defining the terms lamp and light 
bulb. We agree that using both of these terms may be confusing; however 
we do not believe there is a need for defining these two terms as they 
apply to the same commodity. Therefore, in this final rule, PHMSA is 
revising the language in Sec.  173.11 and Sec.  173.307 to include the 
term ``lamp'' in association with ``light bulb.''
Section 173.24
    In this final rule, PHMSA is revising Sec.  173.24 to authorize the 
use of supplementary packagings within an outer packaging (e.g., an 
intermediate packaging or a receptacle inside a required inner 
packaging) in addition to what is required by the regulations provided 
all applicable requirements are met and, if appropriate, suitable 
cushioning is used to prevent movement within the packaging. This 
revision is consistent with newly adopted provisions in the UN Model 
Regulations. PHMSA received one comment from Veolia requesting 
clarification that the newly proposed requirement under Sec.  
173.24(c)(2) for the use of ``appropriate suitable cushioning'' is only 
required when movement of the inner receptacles within the outer 
packaging would result in breakage of the inner receptacles during 
transportation. PHMSA has revised Sec.  173.24(c)(2) to clarify that 
appropriate suitable cushioning is only required when necessary.
Section 173.25
    To promote the uniformity of markings, the UN Model Regulations 
have been revised to clarify and standardize the specifications for the 
overpack marking. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising Sec.  
173.25(a)(4) to be consistent with the revised specifications for these 
markings in the UN Model Regulations. Also consistent with the UN Model 
Regulations, to allow manufacturers and printers necessary time to 
produce markings that conform to the revised specifications, and to 
allow for the depletion of supplies of existing markings, we are 
adopting a transitional period to authorize an overpack marking that is 
in conformance with the requirements of the regulations in effect on 
December 31, 2014, to be used until December 31, 2016. For domestic 
transportation, we are authorizing an overpack marked with an overpack 
marking prior to January 1, 2017 and in conformance with the 
requirements of the regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, to 
continue in service until the end of its useful life. PHMSA received 
one comment from RIPA providing general support for this amendment.
Section 173.62
    Consistent with the UN Model Regulations, in this final rule, PHMSA 
is revising Sec.  173.62 relating to specific packaging requirements 
for explosives as follows:
    In paragraph (b), in the Explosives Table, the entry for UN0222 is 
revised to expand the packaging authorizations to include Packing 
Instruction 117 in addition to the existing Packaging Instructions 
112(b) and 112(c).
    In paragraph (c), in the Table of Packing Methods, Packing 
Instruction 116 is revised to delete provision 5, which states that 
woven plastic bags (5H2 or 5H3) must be used only for UN 0082, 0241, 
0331 and 0332. Packing Instruction 117 is revised to add provision 5 
which states, ``For UN0222, when other than metal or rigid plastics 
IBCs are used, they must be offered for transportation in a closed 
freight container or a closed transport vehicle.''; and provision 6 
which states, ``For UN0222, flexible IBCs must be sift-proof and water-
resistant or must be fitted with a sift-proof and water-resistant 
liner.'' Packing Instructions 131 and 137 are revised to expand the 
authorization for outer packagings to include solid plastic boxes 
(4H2).

[[Page 1099]]

Section 173.115
    Section 173.115 prescribes the definitions for Class 2 materials. 
In this final rule a new paragraph (m) is added to define the term 
``Adsorbed gas.'' The term means a gas which when packaged for 
transport is adsorbed onto a solid porous material resulting in an 
internal receptacle pressure of less than 101.3 kPa at 20 [deg]C and 
less than 300 kPa at 50 [deg]C.
    Currently the HMR do not prescribe requirements for the transport 
of adsorbed gases. In this final rule, PHMSA is adopting various 
transportation requirements for adsorbed gases. Therefore in this final 
rule we are adopting the above definition of an adsorbed gas based on 
the definition found in the 18th Revised Edition of the UN Model 
Regulations, the IMDG Code and the ICAO TI.
Section 173.121
    Section 173.121 prescribes the requirements for the selection of 
packing groups for Class 3 flammable liquids. Paragraph (b) of this 
section describes the criteria for inclusion of viscous Class 3 
materials in Packing Group III. Paragraph (b)(1)(ii) currently states 
that the mixture cannot contain any substances with a primary or 
subsidiary risk of Division 6.1 or Class 8. In this final rule, PHMSA 
is revising paragraph (b)(1)(ii) to clarify that a mixture or any 
separated solvent cannot contain any substances with a primary or 
subsidiary risk of Division 6.1 or Class 8. This change is consistent 
with the current language in the 18th Revised Edition of the UN Model 
Regulations, the IMDG Code and the ICAO TI.
Section 173.127
    In this final rule, PHMSA is revising Sec.  173.127(a) to authorize 
an alternative test for assigning packing groups to Division 5.1 
oxidizing solids. The test is in addition to the currently authorized 
test using potassium bromate/cellulose mixture. The alternative test 
uses calcium peroxide as a reference substance which is neither 
carcinogenic nor as acutely toxic as potassium bromate. In addition, 
the alternative test replaces the highly subjective visual 
determination of the burning time with a gravimetric determination of 
the burning rate. This change is consistent with the test adopted into 
the UN Model Regulations.
Section 173.151
    Section 173.151 provides exceptions for Class 4 hazardous 
materials. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising paragraph (b) to 
replace a pre-existing paragraph (b)(2) relating to exceptions for 
charcoal briquettes (NA1361) that was inadvertently deleted in the 
final rule dated January 7, 2013 (HM-215K; 78 FR 1101).
Section 173.161
    Section 173.161 prescribes packaging requirements for chemical kits 
and first aid kits that contain small amounts of hazardous materials. 
Paragraph (b)(2) contains the requirement that ``The packing group 
assigned to the chemical kit and first aid kit as a whole must be the 
most stringent packing group assigned to any individual substance in 
the kit . . .'' This requirement creates problems for shippers and air 
transport acceptance personnel because it does not specify what must be 
shown for the packing group on the shipping paper, or what packaging 
standard must be applied to kits containing hazardous materials to 
which no packing group is assigned. In this final rule, PHMSA is 
revising paragraph (b)(2) to require that for kits containing only 
hazardous materials to which no packing group is assigned, a packing 
group need not be indicated on the shipping paper although such 
packagings shall meet the Packing Group II performance level. PHMSA 
received one comment from UPS providing full support for the amendments 
as proposed.
Section 173.164
    Section 173.164 prescribes requirements for the transportation of 
Mercury (metallic and articles containing mercury). In this final rule, 
PHMSA is eliminating the existing exception for lamps containing 
mercury in paragraph (a)(5) since this exception will be covered in the 
new Sec.  173.11 relating to exceptions for shipment of light bulbs 
containing hazardous materials.
Section 173.166
    Section 173.166 prescribes requirements for the transportation of 
air bag inflators, air bag modules and seat-belt pretensioners, UN3268 
and UN0503. Due to technological developments, new safety devices for 
vehicles are becoming available. The devices include pyromechanical 
devices that meet the definition of a hazardous material but are not 
accurately described by the proper shipping names Air bag inflators, 
Air bag modules, or Seat-belt pretensioners. The proper shipping name 
for these devices has been revised in the UN Model Regulations to 
``Safety devices, electrically initiated'' for UN 3268 and ``Safety 
devices, pyrotechnic'' for UN0503. Consistent with the UN Model 
Regulations, PHMSA is adopting these revised proper shipping names and 
revising Sec.  173.166 to adopt the term ``Safety Devices'' for these 
items. An entry for the existing proper shipping name ``Air bag 
inflators, or Air bag modules, or Seat-belt pretensioners'' has been 
left in the Sec.  172.101 Hazardous Materials Table to direct the 
reader to the new proper shipping names ``Safety devices, electrically 
initiated'' and ``Safety devices, pyrotechnic.'' PHMSA received 
multiple comments (Takata, Autoliv, TRW Automotive, and COSTHA) 
supporting the inclusion of new proper shipping names for ``Safety 
devices.''
    The current Sec.  173.166(b)(1)(iv) provides that under certain 
conditions a Class 9 (UN3268) air bag inflator, air bag module, or 
seat-belt pretensioner design is not required to be submitted to the 
Associate Administrator for approval or assigned an EX number. In the 
NPRM, PHMSA proposed not extending this exception to all Class 9 safety 
devices and maintaining this exception only for air bag inflators, air 
bag modules, and seat-belt pretensioners. All other types of safety 
devices, such as pyromechanical devices, that are candidates for Class 
9 must be submitted to the Associate Administrator for approval. 
Takata, Autoliv, TRW Automotive, and COSTHA provided comments opposing 
PHMSA's proposal to not extend this exception to all ``Safety, 
devices.'' A summary of the commenters' positions follows:
     Employees who prepare shipping papers will have a 
difficult task to determine when an EX number is or is not required to 
be contained on the shipping paper, and training for this requirement 
by January 1, 2015 will be difficult to achieve.
     Automated software used to prepare shipping papers for 
hazardous materials will not be capable of differentiating between air 
bag inflators, air bag modules, seat-belt pretensioners and all other 
Class 9 (UN3268) safety devices. Software programs are written to 
either require an EX number or not require an EX number for UN3268 
(Class 9) devices.
     Carriers are not capable of determining when a Class 9, 
UN3268 ``Safety Device'' does or does not require an EX number on the 
shipping papers.
     PHMSA approved explosives test labs will witness testing 
of Safety Devices, other than air bag inflators, air bag modules and 
seat-belt pretensioners, to determine proper classification. The 
devices will either pass criteria for classification as Class 9 
(UN3268), Class 1.4G (UN0503) or they will fail to obtain 
classification as a Safety Device. There

[[Page 1100]]

will be no increased risk to safety based on the explosives examiner's 
classification determination.
     The new Safety Devices, other than air bag inflators, air 
bag modules and seat-belt pretensioners, have already been manufactured 
and shipped for several years, but with classifications such as Class 
1.4S (UN0323) or ``Not regulated as a Class 1 Explosive''. These 
devices typically contain significantly lower amounts of pyrotechnics, 
and therefore pose less risk to safety when shipping and handling. The 
commenters are not aware of any incidents or accidents involving these 
devices.
     Adding the requirement for certain Safety Devices to be 
submitted to PHMSA for approval and an EX number will add to PHMSA's 
approval workload. Current processing time for approvals is 180 to 200 
days. This delay in bringing new products to market will hurt U.S. 
manufacturers and carriers because new products will be sourced to 
other nations.
    As noted in the proposed rule, the three items currently excepted 
have a long history of safety in their design and manufacture. New 
devices do not yet have such an established safety history. PHMSA, in 
the interest of safety, is limiting use of the exception to articles 
and devices currently authorized under the exception. PHMSA is not 
opposed to reexamining the exception from Associate Administrator 
approval for all safety devices, once a sufficient number of these new 
devices have been evaluated and the data provides assurance that an 
appropriate level of safety is maintained. PHMSA is however excepting 
these new types of safety devices classified as Class 9 materials from 
the requirement to mark the EX number on shipping papers and packages 
by revising Sec.  173.166(c)(2). This revision addresses the commenters 
concerns about the ability for carriers and downstream offerors to know 
when a safety device classified as a Class 9 material does or does not 
require an EX number to be indicated on documentation or packages.
    Additionally, in this final rule, PHMSA is adding a new paragraph 
(d)(5) to Sec.  173.166 to permit the continued transportation of an 
air bag inflator, air bag module, or seat-belt pretensioner that was 
classed and approved for transportation prior to January 1, 2015 under 
the terms of the existing approval, using the proper shipping name 
``Safety Devices'' or ``Safety Devices, Pyrotechnic'' as appropriate.
    PHMSA received a comment from COSTHA noting potential logistical 
problems ensuring that all packages, either currently in transportation 
or in storage awaiting further offering in transportation, are both 
marked and described with the new proper shipping names ``Safety 
devices'' or ``Safety devices, pyrotechnic'' as appropriate. COSTHA 
notes that while the majority of shippers of these devices are 
transitioning to the new authorized shipping names for documentation 
purposes, ensuring proper shipping name markings on packages are 
consistent with the new shipping names may prove difficult. COSTHA asks 
for a transitional period for packages containing ``Air bag 
inflators'', ``Air bag modules'', and ``Seat-belt pretensioners'' 
allowing them to be marked with previously authorized proper shipping 
names while shipping papers would indicate the new proper shipping 
names as proposed in the NPRM.
    PHMSA agrees that this situation may occur, and in this final rule 
PHMSA is adding a new paragraph (d)(6) to Sec.  173.166 to permit until 
January 1, 2016, the domestic transportation by highway, rail, and 
vessel of packages containing ``Air bag inflators'', ``Air bag 
modules'', or ``Seat-belt pretensioners'' that are marked or documented 
either with a previously authorized proper shipping name (Air bag 
inflators, Air bag modules, or Seat-belt pretensioners) for these 
articles; or with the appropriate new proper shipping name authorized 
under this rulemaking (Safety devices or Safety devices, pyrotechnic). 
This exception can be applied in part or in whole. Packages may be 
marked with a previously authorized proper shipping name (e.g., Air bag 
inflators) and declared on shipping papers with a proper shipping name 
authorized under this rulemaking (e.g., Safety devices). Conversely, 
packages may be marked with a proper shipping name authorized under 
this rulemaking (e.g., Safety devices) and declared on shipping papers 
with a previously authorized proper shipping name (e.g., Air bag 
inflators). It is also important to note that in accordance with the 
January 1, 2016 delayed compliance date of this rulemaking, packages 
that are both marked and declared using a proper shipping name in 
effect on December 31, 2014 may continue to be offered for transport 
and transported until January 1, 2016.
Section 173.167
    Section 173.167 prescribes the requirements for consumer 
commodities intended for air transportation. In this final rule, PHMSA 
is revising the drop test requirements in (a)(4) by including the 
criteria for passing the test. A completed consumer commodity package 
will be considered to have passed the drop test if the outer packaging 
does not exhibit any damage liable to affect safety during transport 
and there is no leakage from the inner packaging(s).
Section 173.176
    This section addresses capacitors by prescribing the testing, 
marking, safety, and packaging requirements for electric double layer 
capacitors with energy storage capacity greater than 0.3 watt hours 
(Wh). In this final rule, PHMSA is revising Sec.  173.176 to include 
provisions for asymmetric capacitors in accordance with the new HMT 
entry ``UN3508, Capacitor, asymmetric (with an energy storage capacity 
greater than 0.3Wh).'' In addition, paragraph (a)(5) presently requires 
that capacitors must be marked with the energy storage capacity in Wh. 
Many pre-existing capacitors do not have Wh marking and are not 
permitted to be transported even when all other requirements of this 
section are met. PHMSA is amending paragraph (a)(5) to require that the 
Wh marking is required for non-asymmetric capacitors manufactured after 
December 31, 2013 and for asymmetric capacitors manufactured after 
December 31, 2015.
Section 173.181
    This section prescribes the non-bulk packaging requirements 
applicable to pyrophoric liquids. On January 7, 2013, PHMSA published 
final rule PHMSA-2012-0027 (HM-215L) [78 FR 987] to maintain alignment 
with international standards by incorporating various amendments, 
including changes to proper shipping names, hazard classes, packing 
groups, special provisions, packaging authorizations, air transport 
quantity limitations, and vessel stowage requirements. In that final 
rule, PHMSA revised paragraphs (b) and (c) to add authorized packagings 
for these materials. Paragraphs (c)1-3 were inadvertently deleted due 
to an incorrect amendatory instruction and in this final rule, PHMSA is 
placing paragraphs (c)1-3 back into Sec.  173.181 as they were prior to 
the publication of HM-215L.
Section 173.185
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adding paragraph (b)(6) and revising 
paragraph(f)(3) to authorize and prescribe the use of a large packaging 
for a single large lithium battery or a battery contained in equipment. 
This authorization does not include transportation by aircraft. The 
addition of this packaging type into this section is consistent with 
provisions for lithium batteries in the UN Model Regulations.

[[Page 1101]]

PHMSA received one comment from COSTHA in support of this proposal.
    The ICAO DGP took a decision during the most recent biennium to 
remove the alternative written documentation option in Section IB of 
ICAO TI Packing Instructions 965 and 968 and instead require a standard 
transport document (shipping paper). Section IB is applicable to 
packages that exceed the number or quantity (mass) limits for smaller 
lithium batteries in Section II of Packing Instructions 965 and 968, 
thus excepting such packages from specification packaging requirements 
when containing no more than 2.5 kg of lithium metal cells or batteries 
or 10 kg of lithium ion cells or batteries per package. As this 
revision will appear in the 2015-2016 Edition of the ICAO TI, in this 
final rule PHMSA is amending paragraph (c)(4)(v) to require a shipping 
paper for these packages containing no more than 2.5 kg of lithium 
metal cells or batteries or 10 kg of lithium ion cells or batteries per 
package. PHMSA sought input as to the costs and benefits of harmonizing 
the provisions of the HMR with the provisions of the ICAO Technical 
Instructions by requiring shipping papers as opposed to alternative 
documentation. PHMSA also solicited comments on the costs and benefits 
of maintaining a domestic difference within the HMR to continue to 
allow the use of the alternative documentation in lieu of a shipping 
paper as required by the ICAO Technical Instructions. PHMSA received 
comments from UPS and Alaska Airlines concerning removal of the 
alternative document. UPS supported our proposed change to the 
documentation requirement for packages containing smaller lithium 
batteries transported in accordance with Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v). UPS 
also commented that the proposal to introduce a shipping paper 
requirement for shipments offered under Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v) could be 
interpreted to conflict with the statement in the preceding paragraph 
Sec.  173.185(c) that such shipments are excepted from the requirements 
in subparts C through H of part 172. UPS suggests that Sec.  173.185(c) 
should be clarified in this regard. We agree clarification is 
warranted. Alaska Airlines commented that they would like to see 
increased harmonization between the 49 CFR and ICAO TI with regard to 
the documentation required while stating there is no reason to deviate 
from the ICAO TI. We agree, and note that the amendments proposed do 
provide for such consistency.
    Taking into account the comments from Alaska Airlines, PHMSA 
confirmed that the proposed documentation amendments do align with the 
requirements of the ICAO TI. However, in this final rule PHMSA is 
revising Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v) as suggested by UPS for clarity. This 
editorial amendment will clarify that packages offered in accordance 
with Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v) are subject to the shipping paper 
requirements of subpart C of Part 172.
    At the April 2014 meeting, the ICAO Working Group on Lithium 
Batteries, forbade the shipment of lithium metal cells and batteries as 
cargo on passenger aircraft with the exception of lithium metal cells 
and batteries packed with or contained in equipment not exceeding 5 kg 
net weight. This prohibition of lithium metal batteries as cargo on 
passenger aircraft is consistent with current HMR requirements. As a 
consequence to this prohibition, Section II of Packing Instruction 968 
in the ICAO TI was amended to require shipments of small lithium metal 
cells and batteries to display the ``CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY'' label where 
previously only a lithium battery handling marking was required. 
Presently under the HMR, a package containing such lithium metal cells 
or batteries as provided in Sec.  173.185(c)(1)(iii), is required to be 
marked ``PRIMARY LITHIUM BATTERIES--FORBIDDEN FOR TRANSPORT ABOARD 
PASSENGER AIRCRAFT'' or ``LITHIUM METAL BATTERIES--FORBIDDEN FOR 
TRANSPORT ABOARD PASSENGER AIRCRAFT.'' In this final rule, PHMSA is 
providing an alternative to the existing marking requirement in Sec.  
173.185(c)(1)(iii) with the option to display a ``CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY'' 
label. This allowance to either utilize the current marking or the 
``CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY'' label provides shippers with the flexibility to 
utilize supplies of preprinted markings or packagings, while also 
allowing shippers to transition to the use of the ``CARGO AIRCRAFT 
ONLY'' if desired.
    PHMSA received comments from UPS and COSTHA in support of the 
proposal. UPS also commented that the provision in this paragraph 
excepting lithium metal cells or batteries packed with or contained in 
equipment in quantities ``less than 5 kg net weight'' from the Sec.  
173.185(c)(1)(iii) marking requirement differs slightly in wording from 
the current ICAO TI and previous requirements of the HMR. In this final 
rule, PHMSA is revising Sec.  173.185(c)(1)(iii) as proposed in the 
NPRM with an additional editorial revision to clarify that lithium 
metal cells or batteries packed with or contained in equipment in 
quantities ``not exceeding'' as opposed to ``less than'' 5 kg net 
weight are not subject to the marking or ``CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY'' label 
requirement. This provides editorial consistency with the provisions of 
the ICAO TI.
Section 173.199
    In this final rule, PHMSA is revising the specifications for the 
Category B infectious substance marking in Sec.  173.199(a)(5) to be 
consistent with the revised specifications for these markings in the UN 
Model Regulations. Also consistent with the UN Model Regulations, to 
allow manufacturers and printers necessary time to produce markings 
that conform to the revised specifications, and to allow for the 
depletion of supplies of existing markings, we are adopting a 
transitional period to authorize a Category B infectious substance 
marking that is in conformance with the requirements of the regulations 
in effect on December 31, 2014, to be used until December 31, 2016. For 
domestic transportation, we are authorizing a packaging marked with a 
Category B infectious substance marking prior to January 1, 2017 and in 
conformance with the requirements of the regulations in effect on 
December 31, 2014, to continue in service until the end of its useful 
life.
Section 173.225
    This section prescribes packaging requirements and other provisions 
for organic peroxides. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising the 
Organic Peroxide Portable Tank Table in paragraph (g). PHMSA is 
revising the entry in the second column of the table pertaining to the 
hazardous material ``Peroxyacetic acid, distilled, stabilized, not more 
than 41%'' to include a Note 1, that a ``Corrosive'' subsidiary risk 
placard is required.'' The adoption of this requirement is consistent 
with the requirements in the UN Model Regulations.
Section 173.231
    Currently, the Sec.  172.101 HMT Column (8B) packaging 
authorization for Ammonium nitrate emulsion, suspension, or gel, 
UN3375, directs the reader to Sec.  173.214 which requires that 
packagings and methods of shipment must be approved by the Associate 
Administrator prior to the first shipment. In this final rule, PHMSA is 
adding a new Sec.  173.231 titled ``Ammonium nitrate emulsion, 
suspension, or gel'' and assigning this section to UN3375 to authorize 
and prescribe the use of non-bulk packagings for this material. The 
requirements of the new section are

[[Page 1102]]

consistent with the requirements in the UN Model Regulations.
Section 173.251
    Currently, the Sec.  172.101 HMT Column (8C) packaging 
authorization for Ammonium nitrate emulsion, suspension, or gel, 
UN3375, directs the reader to Sec.  173.214 which requires that 
packagings and method of shipment must be approved by the Associate 
Administrator prior to the first shipment. In this final rule, PHMSA is 
adding a new Sec.  173.251 titled ``Bulk packaging for ammonium nitrate 
emulsion, suspension, or gel'' and assigning this section to UN3375 to 
authorize and prescribe the use of IBC's for this material. The 
requirements of the new section are consistent with the requirements in 
the UN Model Regulations.
Section 173.301b
    In this final rule, PHMSA is revising paragraph (c) relating to 
pressure receptacle valve requirements to include that a valve 
manufactured on or before December 31, 2008, conforming to the 
requirements in ISO 10297:1999 is authorized. This proposed revision is 
consistent with the requirements in the UN Model Regulations. The 
redesignation of several paragraphs in Sec.  178.71 requires an 
amendment to paragraph (g) of Sec.  173.301b. The current reference for 
marking requirements for cylinders manufactured in accordance with the 
requirements for underwater use direct the user to Sec.  178.71(o)(17). 
This citation is incorrect prior to the publication of this rule and 
should have been (p)(18). With the redesignation of Sec.  178.71(p) as 
paragraph (q), this reference is being changed to Sec.  178.71(q)(18).
Section 173.302
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adopting the new UN Model Regulation 
requirements for the transportation of adsorbed gases in cylinders. 
This section specifies requirements for the filling of cylinders with 
non-liquefied (permanent) compressed gases. PHMSA is amending the title 
of this section and paragraph (a) to include and specify requirements 
for the transportation of adsorbed gases.
Section 172.302c
    In this final rule, PHMSA is adding a new Sec.  173.302c to adopt 
the new authorization in the UN Model Regulations for the 
transportation of adsorbed gases in UN pressure receptacles. The 
adoption of these requirements into this new section is consistent with 
the requirements in the UN Model Regulations.
Section 173.307
    Section 173.307 provides exceptions from the regulations for 
compressed gases. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising paragraph 
(a)(5) relating to manufactured articles or apparatuses to clarify that 
the exception for manufactured articles does not include light bulbs. 
The exceptions for light bulbs are contained in the new Sec.  173.11 
relating to exceptions for shipment of light bulbs containing hazardous 
materials. Also, we are revising paragraph (a)(6) relating to light 
bulbs to clarify that the exceptions do not apply to light bulbs as 
described in the new Sec.  173.11 relating to exceptions for shipment 
of light bulbs containing hazardous materials.
Section 173.309
    Section 173.309 prescribes requirements for fire extinguishers. In 
this final rule, we are adding a new introductory paragraph describing 
fire extinguisher types authorized for transport in accordance with 
this section and covered by the HMT entry ``UN1044, Fire 
extinguishers.'' PHMSA received one comment from UPS providing general 
support for the proposed amendments as proposed.
Section 173.403
    Consistent with the UN Model regulations, in this final rule, PHMSA 
is revising two definitions in Sec.  173.403 relating to the 
transportation of Class 7 (Radioactive Materials). ``Exclusive Use'' is 
revised to clarify that it also applies to the shipment of the load and 
that exclusive use only applies when compliance is required by the 
regulations. ``Freight Container'' is revised to eliminate the 
requirement that a ``small freight container'' has one outer dimension 
less than 1.5 m (4.9 feet).
Section 173.415
    Section 173.415 authorizes Type A packages for the transport of 
Class 7 (radioactive) materials. In this final rule, PHMSA is amending 
paragraph (d) to reflect the incorporation by reference (IBR) of the 
IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material, SSR-6 
2012 Edition. Please see the Section-by-Section Review under Sec.  
171.7 for a discussion of the incorporation by reference.
Section 173.416
    Section 173.416 authorizes Type B packages for the transport of 
Class 7 (radioactive) materials. In this final rule, PHMSA is amending 
paragraph (b) to reflect the incorporation by reference (IBR) of the 
IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material, SSR-6 
2012 Edition. Please see the Section-by-Section Review under Sec.  
171.7 for a discussion of the incorporation by reference.
Section 173.417
    Section 173.417 authorizes fissile materials packages for the 
transport of Class 7 (radioactive) materials. In this final rule, PHMSA 
is amending paragraphs (a)(1)(iii) and (b)(2) to reflect the 
incorporation by reference (IBR) of the IAEA Regulations for the Safe 
Transport of Radioactive Material, SSR-6 2012 Edition. Please see the 
Section-by-Section Review under Sec.  171.7 for a discussion of the 
incorporation by reference.
Section 173.420
    Section 173.420 prescribes the transport conditions for uranium 
hexafluoride. In this final rule, PHMSA is amending this paragraph to 
note that fissile-excepted shipments less than 0.1 kg may be offered 
under UN3507. These requirements align with IAEA SSR-6 requirements, 
while maintaining general packaging requirements from Sec. Sec.  173.24 
and 173.24a.
Section 173.435
    Section 173.435 provides a table of A1 and A2 
values for radionuclides for Class 7 (radioactive) materials. In this 
final rule, PHMSA is amending note \a\ to the table to reflect the 
incorporation by reference (IBR) of the IAEA Regulations for the Safe 
Transport of Radioactive Material, SSR-6 2012 Edition. Please see the 
Section-by-Section Review under Sec.  171.7 for a discussion of the 
incorporation by reference.
Section 173.466
    Section 173.466 specifies additional tests for Type A packagings 
designed for liquids and gases. During the review of this section, we 
found that paragraphs (a)(1) and (a)(2) were inadvertently removed in a 
final rule published in the Federal Register on July 11, 2014 (79 FR 
40589; HM-250). As a result, PHMSA is reinstating (a)(1) and (a)(2) as 
they read prior to publication of the HM-250 final rule.
Section 173.473
    Section 173.473 provides the requirements for foreign made packages 
for the transport of Class 7 (radioactive) materials. In this final 
rule, PHMSA is amending the introductory paragraph and paragraph (a)(1) 
to reflect the incorporation by reference (IBR) of the

[[Page 1103]]

IAEA Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material, SSR-6 
2012 Edition. Please see the Section-by-Section Review under Sec.  
171.7 for a discussion of the incorporation by reference.

Part 175

Section 175.9
    Section 175.9 prescribes the applicability of the HMR to special 
aircraft and rotocraft operations. This section also prescribes the 
conditions under which certain operations may be performed in 
accordance with 14 CFR and 49 CFR (e.g., avalanche and weather 
control). Consistent with the ICAO TI, in this final rule, PHMSA is 
revising paragraphs (b)(6) and (b)(6)(v) by including ``ice jam 
control'' and ``landslide clearance'' for operations where explosives 
are used in a similar manner to avalanche control.
Section 175.10
    Section 175.10 specifies the conditions for which passengers, crew 
members, or an operator may carry hazardous materials aboard an 
aircraft. Consistent with revisions to the ICAO TI, in this final rule, 
PHMSA is making several revisions to this section.
    PHMSA is revising paragraph (a)(11), applicable to passenger 
provisions for self-inflating life jackets, to include different types 
of self-inflating personal safety devices in order to account for those 
carried by, but not limited to, motorcycle and horseback riders. In 
addition, PHMSA is clarifying that a passenger is limited to one self-
inflating safety device, in addition to two spare cartridges, and is 
requiring that both the safety device and spares be packed in such a 
manner that they cannot be accidently activated.
    PHMSA is adding a new subparagraph (a)(18)(iv) to clarify that 
articles containing lithium metal or lithium ion cells or batteries, 
with a primary function to provide power to another device, must be 
carried as spare batteries in accordance with the provisions of this 
paragraph. Examples of such articles are portable power banks, portable 
charging stations, portable battery chargers, portable rechargers, 
back-up battery power stations, battery power packs, and auxiliary 
power sources containing lithium batteries. During the review of this 
provision, we found that the preceding paragraph (a)(18)(iii) was 
inadvertently removed in a final rule published in the Federal Register 
on August 6, 2014 (79 FR 46011; HM-224F). As a result, PHMSA is 
reinstating (a)(18)(iii).
    PHMSA is revising paragraph (a)(24), applicable to small cartridges 
for other devices, by amending the phrase ``small cylinders'' to 
``small cartridges,'' and restricting the carriage of small gas 
cartridges to only those without a subsidiary risk. The existing 
operator approval requirement was moved to make it more clearly align 
with the ICAO TI.
Section 175.25
    Section 175.25 prescribes the notification that operators must 
provide to passengers regarding restrictions on the types of hazardous 
material they may or may not carry aboard an aircraft on their person 
or in checked or carry-on baggage. Consistent with revisions to the 
ICAO TI, in this final rule, PHMSA is revising paragraph (b) as 
follows: (1) For all ticket purchases, clarify that the hazardous 
materials notification must be presented at the point of ticket 
purchase, or if this is not practical, made available to passengers in 
another manner prior to the check-in process and; (2) for such internet 
purchases, require that the final ticket purchase cannot be completed 
until the passenger or a person acting on the passenger's behalf has 
been presented with this information, in addition to the existing 
requirement to indicate that they understand the restrictions on 
hazardous materials in baggage. PHMSA is revising paragraph (c) as 
follows: (1) Replace the text ``provided'' with ``presented'' to make 
it clear that passengers must see information on the types of hazardous 
material forbidden to be transported before proceeding with check-in 
and; (2) require that the check-in process cannot be completed until 
the passenger or a person acting on the passenger's behalf has been 
presented with the hazardous materials information, in addition to the 
existing requirement to indicate that they understand the restrictions 
on hazardous materials in baggage. It was reported that some operators 
published the required information in areas on a Web site that were not 
always visible to the passenger, believing that this met the 
requirement of being ``provided.''
    In paragraphs (b) and (c) PHMSA is removing the present effective 
dates of January 1, 2015 and the word ``phone'' used as an example of a 
ticket purchase or check-in completed remotely. Furthermore, PHMSA is 
removing the words ``regardless if the process is completed remotely 
(e.g., via the Internet and Phone) or when completed at the airport, 
with or without assistance from another person (e.g., automated check 
in facility)'' in order to bring paragraph (b) into full alignment with 
7;5.1.1 of the ICAO TI. By removing the examples in conjunction with 
other revisions to paragraph (b) it is now clear that passenger 
notification is required for all ticket purchases; however, for 
assisted ticket purchase transactions via the telephone, the hazardous 
materials information may be provided to the passenger using any 
suitable method prior to the check-in process and passenger 
acknowledgement is not required. These revisions represent full 
harmonization with the ICAO TI and additional flexibility in meeting 
the passenger notification requirements and, therefore, the previous 
effective date of January 1, 2015 is waived as of publication of the 
rule.
    In addition, the revision is consistent with a petition for 
rulemaking (P-1623) filed by COSTHA since it provides clarification for 
ticket purchases made via the telephone, permitting the hazardous 
materials notification to be made available in another manner to 
passengers prior to the check-in process.
    PHMSA received comments from Jeffery Richmond, COSTHA, and the ASTA 
on the proposed amendments. Jeffery Richmond and ASTA both provide 
general support for the amendments. Mr. Richmond notes that the changes 
as proposed would bring Sec.  175.25(b) into full compliance with the 
ICAO TI. COSTHA also provided support for the proposed amendments, but 
would like to note that there is a question of how the Advisory 
Circular (AC) will be drafted after implementation date of the final 
rule. COSTHA further asked if the FAA will continue to update the 
circular after the final rule comes into force or if this guidance 
information be eliminated. Lastly, COSTHA asked if PHMSA would continue 
to communicate with the FAA in the future on this issue.
    The FAA chartered an Aviation Rulemaking Committee (ARC), which 
then developed recommendations for an AC on Passenger Notification of 
Hazardous Materials Regulations. PHMSA notes that the referenced ARC 
recommendations were submitted to the FAA on November 1, 2013, and a 
request for comments was issued by the FAA in the Federal Register on 
March 4, 2014 (See 79 FR 12133). The ARC recommendations are considered 
open pending FAA review and are beyond the scope of this rulemaking. 
PHMSA will continue to communicate with the FAA on all matters relating 
to the safe transportation of hazardous materials by aircraft.
Section 175.30
    Section 175.30 prescribes inspection procedures for operators. 
Paragraph

[[Page 1104]]

(e)(1) prohibits an overpack from containing a package bearing the 
``CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY'' label unless certain conditions are met and the 
overpack affords clear visibility of and easy access to the package 
contained within. In this final rule, PHMSA is removing paragraph 
(e)(1) consistent with revisions made to the ICAO TI in which current 
provisions require accessibility to the overpack when loaded aboard an 
aircraft, not the individual packages contained within, making 
reference to packages redundant. As the loading requirements in Sec.  
175.75(d)(1) require a package bearing the ``CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY'' 
label to be accessible once loaded on the aircraft, but do not require 
that they are visible, the requirements in (e)(1) place an unnecessary 
burden on offerors without any additional safety function in the 
loading process.
    Paragraph (a)(5) states that no person may accept for 
transportation aboard an aircraft shipments of lithium batteries 
described with an alternative written document authorized in Sec.  
173.185(c)(4)(v) unless the aircraft operator ensures the hazardous 
material is described on alternative written documentation when 
authorized in accordance with Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v). The removal of 
the alternative written document from Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v) 
necessitates the removal of this paragraph.
    PHMSA received comments from COSTHA and UPS addressing our proposed 
amendments to Sec.  175.30. COSTHA supported the removal of (e)(1) 
noting that this requirement is not relevant and leads to confusion. 
COSTHA also supported the removal of (a)(5) as the allowance of an 
alternate document in the HMR would create significant confusion for 
air carrier acceptance agents. UPS supports the amendments as proposed 
in the interest of global consistency.
Section 175.33
    Section 175.33 establishes requirements for shipping papers and for 
the notification of the pilot-in-command when hazardous materials are 
transported by aircraft.
    With the exception of package type, paragraph (a)(1)(i) currently 
requires any additional shipping paper description requirements 
provided in Sec. Sec.  172.202, and 172.203 to be included on the 
notification of the pilot-in-command. Section 172.203(k) requires the 
use of technical names for ``n.o.s.'' and generic descriptions for 
proper shipping names identified by the letter ``G'' in column (1) of 
the Sec.  172.101 Table. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising 
paragraph (a)(1)(i) to state that technical names are not required to 
be provided on the notification of pilot-in-command. This clarification 
aligns the HMR with changes adopted in the ICAO TI and supports the 
overall goal of harmonization. Harmonization of the notification of 
pilot-in-command requirements ensures consistency across all air 
operators thus reducing impediments in commerce and reducing costs 
associated with training to two different sets of standards. In 
addition, the technical name is not referenced in the Emergency 
Response Guidance for Aircraft Incidents Involving Dangerous Goods (Doc 
9481) or the North American Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG). The 
ICAO panel determined that the technical names provided little benefit 
to safety, particularly during the initial stage of emergency response 
while the number of materials requiring a technical name is on the 
rise, thereby increasing the burden on operators to provide this 
information. In addition, the technical name is not referenced in the 
Emergency Response Guidance for Aircraft Incidents Involving Dangerous 
Goods (Doc 9481) or the North American Emergency Response Guidebook 
(ERG).
    Paragraphs (a)(12) and (c)(5) both mention the alternative written 
document authorized in Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v). The removal of the 
alternative written document from Sec.  173.185(c)(4)(v) necessitates 
the removal of these paragraphs. Any information required to be a part 
of the notification of the pilot-in-command previously under paragraph 
(a)(12) will be detailed on a shipping paper and be included on the 
notification of the pilot-in-command.
    PHMSA received two comments concerning our proposed amendments to 
Sec.  175.33. COSTHA and UPS support the removal of the technical name 
from the notification of pilot-in-command requirements.
Section 175.630
    Section 175.630 prescribes special requirements for Division 6.1 
(Toxic) and 6.2 (Infectious) materials in the HMT. Consistent with 
revisions to the ICAO TI, in this final rule, PHMSA is removing 
paragraph (a) which prescribes segregation requirements for certain 
Division 6.1 or Division 6.2 materials in the same compartment of an 
aircraft with material marked as or known to be a foodstuff, feed, or 
any other edible material intended for consumption by humans or 
animals. At the time these segregation requirements were initially 
included in the ICAO TI and the HMR, the packing instructions were much 
less detailed than they are at present. The UN Model Regulations do not 
impose segregation requirements for Division 6.2 infectious substances. 
The segregation requirements for infectious substances under the ICAO 
TI and HMR only apply to UN2814 and UN2900 which already require robust 
triple packagings. For Division 6.1, the UN Recommendations allow the 
segregation requirements to be relaxed for substances in Packing Groups 
II and III, provided the competent authority is satisfied that the 
packing and segregation are adequate to prevent contamination. In 
addition, the inspection procedures prescribed in Sec.  175.30 require 
a physical check to ensure that the packagings are free from damage. 
The revisions adopted in this final rule are consistent with a petition 
for rulemaking (P-1631) filed by UPS, Inc., who voiced strong support 
for such action.
    PHMSA received comments from COSTHA, DGAC, and UPS concerning our 
proposed removal of the segregation requirement. Both COSTHA and UPS 
support this proposal. DGAC commented that authorizing materials 
identified as Division 6.1 or 6.2 to be loaded in the same compartment 
as materials known to be food or foodstuffs may have a disruptive and 
underappreciated effect on companies that must operate under Food 
Safety Management Systems. The possibility of mixed loads of food 
products and Class 6 materials will require a re-evaluation of Hazard 
Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) plans for companies 
shipping food in the air mode. PHMSA has reviewed the removal of the 
segregation requirement with regard to the effect on HACCP plans and 
has determined that the removal of Sec.  175.630(a) is suitable for 
incorporation as proposed. To ensure consumers do not get sick, an 
HACCP plan requires companies shipping food to identify critical 
control points and establish safety protocols. These critical control 
points include transportation and transportation related activities 
such as temperature control during transit, storage, loading, unloading 
and physical security. Our review has determined that HACCP plan 
requirements are not specific to any particular hazardous material 
class when properly packaged in accordance with the HMR or 
corresponding international standard.
Section 175.705
    Section 175.705 prescribes requirements for aircraft that have been 
contaminated with radioactive material and the procedures that must be

[[Page 1105]]

followed prior to returning the aircraft to service. Consistent with 
revisions to the ICAO TI, in this final rule, PHMSA is revising 
paragraph (c) by stating that the dose rate at every accessible surface 
``must not exceed'' 0.005 mSv per hour, where it presently states ``is 
less than.''

Part 176

Section 176.80
    Section 176.80 details segregation requirements in addition to any 
segregation requirements set forth elsewhere in subchapter C. In this 
final rule, PHMSA is adopting a prohibition on stowing goods of 
Division 1.4, compatibility group S, in the same compartment, hold, or 
cargo transport unit with hazardous materials of Class 1 of 
compatibility groups A and L. Limited quantity shipments are currently 
excepted from segregation requirements for vessel transport by both the 
IMDG Code and the HMR. The IMO noted that when creating this exception, 
a long standing prohibition on stowing limited quantity goods of 
Division 1.4, compatibility group S, in the same compartment, hold, or 
cargo transport unit with hazardous materials of Class 1, compatibility 
groups A and L, was not carried over into amendment 36-12 of the IMDG 
Code. Amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code reinstates these segregation 
provisions, and PHMSA is adopting an equivalent change.
Section 176.83
    Section 176.83 details segregation requirements for hazardous 
materials vessel transport. Paragraph (b) includes a table for users to 
determine segregation requirements between various Classes (Divisions) 
of hazardous materials. In this final rule, PHMSA is amending the 
segregation requirements for vessel transportation between hazardous 
materials of Class 4.3 (dangerous when wet) and Class 2.1 (flammable 
gas), and Class 3 (flammable liquid). Changes in the segregation table 
in paragraph (b) are to change the segregation requirements between 
goods of Class 4.3 and Class 2.1 from an ``x'' (segregation, if any, is 
shown in the Sec.  172.101 table) to a ``2'' (separated from), and 
between goods of Class 4.3 and Class 3 from a ``1'' (away from) to a 
``2'' (separated from). The meaning of these terms differs depending on 
the method of transport onboard a vessel (shipping break-bulk cargo 
versus segregation of cargo transport units on board container 
vessels). PHMSA assumes the majority of commodities transported by 
vessel that will be affected are offered in closed cargo transport 
units (CTU).
    The segregation changes adopted in this final rule are based on 
amendments adopted by the IMO and are aimed at enhancing efforts to 
prevent the spread of fire in an emergency situation. Fire 
extinguishing methods available to vessel crews are often quite 
limited. Due to these limited fire extinguishing options, the only 
recommended option to control the consequences of a fire originating 
from these goods is to let the fire burn and to prevent the spread of 
fire to other cargo or equipment which is crucial for the safe 
operation of the ship. These changes are intended to address situations 
where a fire originates in a shipment of flammable liquids or gases and 
is likely to spread to goods which cannot be extinguished, or when a 
fire originates in goods which cannot be extinguished and threatens to 
spread to highly flammable goods. The new segregation distances will 
enhance efforts to control the emergency situation.
    PHMSA received one comment from IVODGA fully supporting the 
amendments as proposed.
Section 176.84
    Section 176.84 prescribes the meanings and requirements for 
numbered or alpha-numeric stowage provisions for vessel shipments 
listed in column 10B of the Sec.  172.101 Hazardous Materials Table. 
The provisions in Sec.  176.84 are broken down into general stowage 
provisions whose meanings are defined in the ``table of provisions'' in 
paragraph (b), and the stowage provisions applicable to vessel 
shipments of Class 1 explosives, which are defined in the table to 
paragraph (c)(2).
    In this final rule, PHMSA is amending the title of the section to 
note that the codes in column 10B address not only codes for stowage 
requirements, but also handling requirements that need to be observed 
during loading of the hazardous materials. PHMSA is also creating 
footnote 3 and assigning it to stowage provision 12 and 13. Footnote 3 
is added to note that these provisions apply not only to stowage of the 
cargo transport unit, but also to the loading of hazardous materials 
into the cargo transport unit.
    PHMSA is additionally creating new stowage provisions 147 and 148 
consistent with changes adopted in Amendment 37-14 of the IMDG Code. 
Stowage provision 147 is adopted to read ``Stow ``separated from'' 
flammable gases and flammable liquids.'' Stowage provision 148 is 
adopted to read ``In addition: from flammable gases and flammable 
liquids when stowed on deck of a containership a minimum distance of 
two container spaces athwartship shall be maintained, when stowed on 
ro-ro ships a distance of 6 m athwartship shall be maintained.''
Section 176.905
    Section 176.905 prescribes specific requirements for motor vehicles 
or mechanical equipment powered by internal combustion engines that are 
offered for transportation and transported by vessel. In this final 
rule, PHMSA is proposing to align our exceptions with those recently 
adopted by the IMO.
    PHMSA is amending paragraphs (i)(1), (i)(2), (i)(4), and (i)(5) to 
require as a condition of exception from the subchapter that batteries 
installed in motor vehicles or mechanical equipment powered by internal 
combustion engines be protected from short circuit. PHMSA is also 
revising paragraph (i)(2), which provides conditions that must be met 
for vehicles or mechanical equipment with an internal combustion engine 
that uses liquid fuel with a flashpoint of 38 [deg]C 
(100[emsp14][deg]F) or higher. Currently up to 418 L (110 gallons) may 
remain in the equipment or vehicle, and if other noted conditions are 
met the vehicle is excepted from all other requirements of subchapter 
C. PHMSA is raising this fuel threshold to 450 L (119 gallons).
    PHMSA is adding paragraph (i)(6) to add exceptions for fuel cell 
powered vehicles or mechanical equipment with an internal combustion 
engine powered by fuel cells. When the engine is protected from 
inadvertent operation by closing fuel supply lines or by other means, 
and the fuel supply reservoir has been drained and sealed, the vehicle 
or mechanical equipment is excepted from the requirements of subchapter 
C.
    PHMSA received one comment from IVODGA fully supporting the 
proposed changes to Sec.  176.905 and relevant exceptions as well as 
the proposed clarifications as presented. IVODGA noted that ``by 
requiring the batteries to be protected from short circuiting, and to 
increase the amount of fuel to the maximum of 119 liters would 
effectively create a uniform standard and eliminate frustrated 
shipments where prior differences created different requirements.''

Part 178

Section 178.71
    Consistent with the UN Model Regulations, in this final rule PHMSA 
is revising paragraph (a) to clarify that UN pressure receptacles and 
service equipment constructed according to the standards applicable at 
the date of

[[Page 1106]]

manufacture may continue in use subject to the continuing qualification 
and maintenance provisions of part 180 of the subchapter.
    PHMSA is revising paragraphs (d)(2), (g), and (k) to reflect the 
adoption of the latest ISO standards for the design, construction, and 
testing of gas cylinders and their associated service equipment. These 
paragraphs also contain end dates when cylinders and service equipment 
are no longer authorized to be manufactured in accordance with the 
outdated ISO standard. PHMSA received one comment from Sally Mitchell 
questioning the accuracy of the statement in Sec.  178.71(d)(2), 
``Until December 31, 2008, the manufacture of a valve conforming to the 
requirements in ISO 10297:1999 (IBR, see Sec.  171.7 of this 
subchapter) is authorized.'' This statement is accurate and consistent 
with the language contained in the UN Model Regulations to authorize 
valves that were manufactured prior to January 1, 2009 and conform with 
the requirements of ISO 10297:1999. Sally Mitchell also suggested 
revising Sec.  178.71(g)(1), (g)(2) and (g)(3) to permit the continued 
manufacture of a cylinder conforming to the requirements of the 
applicable the 1999 publication of ISO 9809-1 and the 2000 publication 
of ISO 9809-2 and 9809-3 until the later of December 31, 2018 or 10 
years from the initial DOT design approval to allow manufacturers to 
recover their type approval expenses over the 10 year life of the 
approval instead of just 4 years. PHMSA does not believe this change is 
necessary, as a design approval is independent of the regulations and 
is authorized for the valid life of the approval regardless of the 
limitations imposed by the regulations.
    Consistent with the UN Model Regulations PHMSA is adding a new 
paragraph (n) and redesignating existing paragraphs (n) through (s). 
The new paragraph (n) adopts design and construction requirements of UN 
cylinders for the transportation of adsorbed gases, consistent with 
those adopted into the UN Model Regulations.
    Consistent with the UN Model Regulations, PHMSA is revising the 
redesignated paragraph (o) to adopt the current ISO standards relating 
to material compatibility.
    Paragraphs (r) and (t) are being revised to change references to 
paragraph (p) to the newly redesignated paragraph (q).
    Finally, PHMSA is adding new paragraphs (u) and (v) to adopt the 
marking requirements for bundles of cylinders that have been adopted in 
the UN Model regulations.
Section 178.75
    Consistent with the UN Model Regulations, PHMSA is revising 
paragraph (d)(3) to reflect the adoption of the latest ISO standards 
for the design, construction, and testing of gas cylinders that are 
part of multiple-element gas containers (MEGCs). This paragraph also 
contains end dates when the cylinders that are part of MEGCs are no 
longer authorized to be manufactured in accordance with the outdated 
ISO standard.
Section 178.703
    The UN Model Regulations have adopted revisions to clarify and 
standardize the specifications for markings, including the marking of 
IBCs, and to promote the uniformity of markings throughout the 
international transportation community. In this final rule, PHMSA is 
revising the specifications for the markings prescribed in Sec.  
178.703(b)(7)(iii) to be consistent with the UN Model Regulations. Also 
consistent with the UN Model Regulations, a transitional period is 
being proposed to authorize markings in conformance with the 
requirements of this paragraph in effect on December 31, 2014, to 
continue to be applied to all IBCs manufactured, repaired or 
remanufactured between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2016. For 
domestic transportation, we are authorizing an IBC marked prior to 
January 1, 2017 and in conformance with the requirements of the 
regulations in effect on December 31, 2014, to continue in service 
until the end of its useful life.
    PHMSA received one comment from RIPA providing general support for 
the amended IBC stacking or not designed for stacking marking 
specifications. RIPA did however recommend PHMSA extend the requirement 
to mark IBCs with the stacking or not designed for stacking mark to 
include IBC's undergoing routine maintenance. Currently the HMR 
requires this marking to be applied to all IBCs manufactured, repaired, 
or remanufactured prior to January 1, 2011. The amendments proposed in 
the NPRM were consistent with those adopted by international standards. 
Expanding the marking requirement to IBCs undergoing routine 
maintenance was not the intent of this regulatory amendment and would 
be inconsistent with the requirements of the international standards.
Section 178.910
    In this final rule, PHMSA is revising paragraph (a) relating to the 
marking of large packagings to include markings for large salvage 
packagings. Following the large packaging design type identification 
code on a large packaging, a large salvage packaging conforming to the 
requirements of subpart P of part 178 is to be marked with the letter 
``T.'' This change is consistent with the UN Model Regulations.
    In addition, to promote the uniformity of markings throughout the 
international transportation community, the UN Model Regulations have 
adopted revisions to clarify and standardize the specifications for 
markings, including the marking of large packagings and large salvage 
packaging. In this final rule, PHMSA is revising the specifications for 
the markings prescribed in Sec.  178.910(b). Also consistent with the 
UN Model Regulations, we are adopting a transitional period to 
authorize markings in conformance with the requirements of this 
paragraph in effect on December 31, 2014, to continue to be applied to 
all large packagings manufactured, repaired or remanufactured between 
January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2016. For domestic transportation, we 
are authorizing a large packaging marked prior to January 1, 2017 and 
in conformance with the requirements of the regulations in effect on 
December 31, 2014, to continue in service until the end of its useful 
life.

Part 180

Section 180.207
    Section 180.207 prescribes the requirements for requalification of 
UN pressure receptacles. Table 1 in paragraph (c) of Sec.  180.207 
provides requalification intervals for UN pressure receptacles. In this 
final rule, PHMSA is adding an additional entry to the end of Table 1 
to prescribe a requalification interval of 5 years for UN culinders 
used for adsorbed gases. This requalification period is consistent with 
the requalification period adopted in the UN Model Regulations for the 
use of these cylinders. Section 173.302c relating to authorization for 
the use of cylinders for adsorbed gases directs the reader to this 
section for the requalification period for these cylinders.
    A new paragraph (d)(5) provides that each UN cylinder used for 
adsorbed gases must be inspected and tested in accordance with Sec.  
173.302c and ISO 11513:2011. Both Sec.  173.302c and ISO 11513:2011 
have been addressed in this final rule.

VI. Regulatory Analyses and Notices

A. Statutory/Legal Authority for This Rulemaking

    This final rule is published under the following statutory 
authorities:
    1. 49 U.S.C. 5103(b) authorizes the Secretary of Transportation to 
prescribe regulations for the safe transportation, including security, 
of hazardous materials in intrastate, interstate, and foreign commerce. 
This final rule amends regulations to maintain alignment with 
international standards by incorporating various amendments, including 
changes to proper shipping names, hazard classes, packing groups, 
special provisions, packaging authorizations, air transport quantity 
limitations and vessel stowage requirements. To this end, the final 
rule amends the HMR to more fully align with the biennial updates of 
the UN Model Regulations, the IMDG Code and the ICAO TI.
    Harmonization serves to facilitate international commerce and 
promotes the safety of people, property, and the environment by 
reducing the potential for confusion and misunderstanding that could 
result if shippers and transporters were required to comply with two or 
more conflicting sets of regulatory requirements. While the intent of 
this rulemaking is to align the HMR with international standards, we 
review and consider each amendment on its own merit based on its 
overall impact on transportation safety and the economic implications 
associated with its adoption into the HMR. Our goal is to harmonize 
without sacrificing the current HMR level of safety and without 
imposing undue burdens on the regulated community. Thus, as explained 
in the corresponding sections above, we are not harmonizing with 
certain specific provisions of the UN Model Regulations, the IMDG Code, 
and the ICAO TI. Moreover, we are maintaining a number of current 
exceptions for domestic transportation that should minimize the 
compliance burden on the regulated community. Additionally, the U.S. 
Coast Guard, U.S. Department of Energy, and U.S. Department of Interior 
were consulted in the development of this rule.
    2. 49 U.S.C. 5120(b) authorizes the Secretary of Transportation to 
ensure that, to the extent practicable, regulations governing the 
transportation of hazardous materials in commerce are consistent with 
standards adopted by international authorities. This final rule is 
amending the HMR to maintain alignment with international standards by 
incorporating various amendments to facilitate the transport of 
hazardous material in international commerce. As discussed in detail 
above, PHMSA is incorporating changes into the HMR based on the 18th 
Revised Edition of the UN Model Regulations, Amendment 37-14 to the 
IMDG Code, and the 2015-2016 Edition of the ICAO TI, which becomes 
effective January 1, 2015. The large volume of hazardous materials 
transported in international commerce warrants the harmonization of 
domestic and international requirements to the greatest extent 
possible.

B. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 and DOT Regulatory Policies and 
Procedures

    This final rule is not considered a significant regulatory action 
under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 (``Regulatory Planning and 
Review'') and, therefore, was not reviewed by the Office of Management 
and Budget. This final rule is not considered a significant rule under 
the Regulatory Policies and Procedures of the Department of 
Transportation (44 FR 11034). Additionally, E.O. 13563 (``Improving 
Regulation and Regulatory Review'') supplements and reaffirms E.O. 
12866, stressing that, to the extent permitted by law, an agency 
rulemaking action must be based on benefits that justify its costs, 
impose the least burden, consider cumulative burdens, maximize 
benefits, use performance objectives, and assess available 
alternatives.
Benefits to Harmonization
    In an earlier regulatory evaluation,\3\ we estimated a proxy for 
benefits of harmonization of the HMR with international standards of 
$62 million. More specifically, this $62 million was estimated by 
multiplying a hazard communication cost per dollar of hazardous 
materials output--$0.001--by the value of hazardous materials involved 
in international trade, as estimated by the proportion of trade (the 
total of gross imports and gross exports) in the fuels and lubricants, 
chemicals, and medicinal/dental/pharmaceutical products industries 
($498 billion in 2010) \4\ that are hazardous products (i.e., 12.4 
percent).\5\ \6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ HM-215L: Hazardous Materials: Harmonization with 
International Standards (RRR), Final Rule, Section V.B., 78 FR 1023 
et seq., January 7, 2013.
    \4\ As reported in the quarterly trade data of the U.S. Bureau 
of Economic Analysis, available at: http://www.bea.gov/international/detailed_trade_data.htm.
    \5\ U.S. Census Bureau's 2007 Commodity Flow Survey, Table 10.
    \6\ See Section V.B. for more detailed calculations of these 
figures.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For estimating benefits of this final rule, we follow a nearly 
identical approach with updated data and using assumptions where 
possible. 2012 Commodity Flow Survey data on hazardous materials are 
not yet available as of the date of this regulatory evaluation.
    The 12.4 percent proportion of total shipment values classed as 
hazardous materials estimated in the earlier regulatory evaluation may 
have had a high-side bias due to the variety of different classes of 
products classified as hazardous. In actuality, the percentage of 
shipments properly classified as hazardous is likely lower, 
particularly for medicinal/dental/pharmaceuticals. Here, we assume a 
slightly lower proportion to arrive at an estimate of benefits of 10 
percent.
    We update our estimate of value of hazardous materials involved in 
international trade by using U.S. Trade in Goods seasonally adjusted, 
Census-based total gross imports and gross exports in the fuels and 
lubricants, chemicals, and medicinal/dental/pharmaceutical products 
industries for the fourth quarter of 2013, the most recent quarter 
available--
     Gross imports: $134 billion (rounded)
    [cir] Fuels and lubricants: $94.744 billion
    [cir] Chemicals: $18.637 billion
    [cir] Medicinal/dental/pharmaceutical products: $20.613 billion
     Gross exports: $85.8 billion (rounded)
    [cir] Fuels and lubricants: $44.301 billion
    [cir] Chemicals: $30.089 billion
    [cir] Medicinal/dental/pharmaceutical products: $11.416 billion
     Gross imports plus gross exports: $219.8 billion \7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. Department of Commerce, 
U.S. Trade in Goods (IDS-0008), available at: http://www.bea.gov/international/detailed_trade_data.htm.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Multiplying the quarterly estimate of $219.8 billion by 4 gives an 
annual estimate of gross imports plus gross exports in the three 
industries of $879.2 billion. Multiplying this figure by 10 percent 
(the estimated proportion of annual trade in these three industries 
that are hazardous products) by the average hazard communication cost 
per dollar of hazardous materials produced in the United States 
($0.001) results in an estimate of benefits from adoption and 
incorporation of international standards of $87.9 million (rounded) 
annually.
    If U.S. regulations are not harmonized with international 
standards, we estimate that it will cost U.S. companies an additional 
$87.9 million per year to comply with both the HMR and the

[[Page 1108]]

international standards. Harmonizing the HMR with the international 
standards, however, will avert these $87.9 million in additional costs, 
and these averted costs are therefore considered the primary benefit 
attributable to this rulemaking.
    Costs of Harmonization. The primary cost of updating references in 
the U.S. HMR (to incorporate the most recent international hazardous 
material standards) is the purchase of updated copies of the 
international standards being incorporated by reference in the HMR. 
These costs will be borne by offerors and transporters of hazmat if 
this rulemaking were finalized.
    It is unknown how many individuals and firms involved in shipping 
hazmat will purchase copies of these international standards as a 
result of finalizing this rulemaking. We take a conservative approach 
to estimating such a figure by using the number of shippers, carriers, 
or other offerors or transporters of hazmat in commerce with a PHMSA 
registration expiring in 2014 as a proxy. Currently, PHMSA's 
registration database indicates 36,731 registrants as of May 20, 
2014.\8\ Of these, 29,877 (approximately 81 percent) are small 
businesses as defined by the U.S. Small Business Administration. 
Further, 31,598 registrants (approximately 86 percent) indicated that 
they offer or transport hazmat solely by highway.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See PHMSA Hazardous Materials Registration Program 
Registration Data Files, link available at http://www.phmsa.dot.gov/hazmat/registration, accessed on May 20, 2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For conservative estimation purposes, if we that all registrants 
will purchase copies of all publications, this indicates an estimated 
cost of this amendment of $56.68 million (rounded, $1,543 cost of all 
publications * 36,731 registrants). In reality, all of the ISO 
standards incorporated will not be purchased by the majority of 
shippers and carriers, and will likely only impact a small subset of 
the regulated community. Further, it is likely that many companies will 
purchase multiple copies of the IMDG Code and ICAO TI, rather than only 
one copy. We do not believe we have sufficient data to estimate the 
precise number of registrants. However, we use one copy per registrant 
as a reasonably conservative estimate on costs of the proposed 
rulemaking.
    However, further assuming that those who indicated that they offer 
or transport in commerce hazmat only via highway, two publications 
included in the $1,543 cost will not apply to such registrants (ICAO TI 
[for air] and IMDG Code [by vessel]). Therefore, costs for the 31,598 
highway-only registrants would total $32.99 million ($1,543--$155 [ICAO 
TI]--$344 [IMDG Code] * 31,598 highway-only registrants). 
Conservatively (i.e., overestimating costs and underestimating 
benefits) assuming all other registrants (while acknowledging that, in 
fact, some will purchase all standards copies and some will purchase 
none) will purchase updated copies of all standards publications listed 
here indicates a total cost of this Amendment 1 of $40.91 million, 
incurred once ($32.99 million + $1,543 * [36,731 total registrants--
31,598 highway-only registrants], rounded).
    Net Benefit. Based on the discussions of benefits and costs 
provided above, the estimated net benefit associated with the 
international harmonization final rule (2137-AF05) is $47 million in 
the first year after publication and $87.9 million in the second year 
after publication. Please see the complete regulatory analysis, a copy 
of which has been placed in the docket for this rulemaking, for a more 
detailed analysis of the costs and benefits of this final rule.

C. Executive Order 13132

    This final rule has been analyzed in accordance with the principles 
and criteria contained in Executive Order 13132 (``Federalism''). This 
final rule preempts State, local and Indian tribe requirements but does 
not propose any regulation that has substantial direct effects on the 
States, the relationship between the national government and the 
States, or the distribution of power and responsibilities among the 
various levels of government. Therefore, the consultation and funding 
requirements of Executive Order 13132 do not apply.
    The Federal hazardous material transportation law, 49 U.S.C. 5101-
5128, contains an express preemption provision (49 U.S.C. 5125(b)) that 
preempts State, local and Indian tribe requirements on certain covered 
subjects, as follows:
    (1) The designation, description, and classification of hazardous 
material;
    (2) The packing, repacking, handling, labeling, marking, and 
placarding of hazardous material;
    (3) The preparation, execution, and use of shipping documents 
related to hazardous material and requirements related to the number, 
contents, and placement of those documents;
    (4) The written notification, recording, and reporting of the 
unintentional release in transportation of hazardous material; and
    (5) The design, manufacture, fabrication, inspection, marking, 
maintenance, recondition, repair, or testing of a packaging or 
container represented, marked, certified, or sold as qualified for use 
in transporting hazardous material in commerce.
    This final rule addresses covered subject items (1), (2), (3), (4) 
and (5) above and preempts State, local, and Indian tribe requirements 
not meeting the ``substantively the same'' standard. This final rule is 
necessary to incorporate changes adopted in international standards, 
effective January 1, 2015. If the changes in this final rule are not 
adopted in the HMR, U.S. companies, including numerous small entities 
competing in foreign markets, would be at an economic disadvantage. 
These companies would be forced to comply with a dual system of 
regulations. The changes in this final rulemaking are intended to avoid 
this result. Federal hazardous materials transportation law provides at 
49 U.S.C. 5125(b)(2) that, if DOT issues a regulation concerning any of 
the covered subjects, DOT must determine and publish in the Federal 
Register the effective date of Federal preemption. The effective date 
may not be earlier than the 90th day following the date of issuance of 
the final rule and not later than two years after the date of issuance. 
PHMSA is setting the effective date of Federal preemption to be 90 days 
from publication of this final rule.

D. Executive Order 13175

    This final rule was analyzed in accordance with the principles and 
criteria contained in Executive Order 13175 (``Consultation and 
Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments''). Because this final rule 
does not have tribal implications, does not impose substantial direct 
compliance costs, and is required by statute, the funding and 
consultation requirements of Executive Order 13175 do not apply.

E. Regulatory Flexibility Act, Executive Order 13272, and DOT 
Procedures and Policies

    The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires an 
agency to review regulations to assess their impact on small entities, 
unless the agency determines that a rule is not expected to have a 
significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. This 
final rule facilitates the transportation of hazardous materials in 
international commerce by providing consistency with international 
standards. This final rule applies to offerors and carriers of 
hazardous materials, some of whom are small entities, such as chemical 
manufacturers, users and suppliers,

[[Page 1109]]

packaging manufacturers, distributors, and training companies. As 
discussed above, under Executive Order 12866, the majority of 
amendments in this final rule should result in cost savings and ease 
the regulatory compliance burden for shippers engaged in domestic and 
international commerce, including trans-border shipments within North 
America.
    Many companies will realize economic benefits as a result of these 
amendments. Additionally, this final rule will relieve U.S. companies, 
including small entities competing in foreign markets, from the burden 
of complying with a dual system of regulations. Therefore, we certify 
that these amendments will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities.
    This final rule has been developed in accordance with Executive 
Order 13272 (``Proper Consideration of Small Entities in Agency 
Rulemaking'') and DOT's procedures and policies to promote compliance 
with the Regulatory Flexibility Act to ensure that potential impacts of 
draft rules on small entities are properly considered.

F. Paperwork Reduction Act

    PHMSA currently has approved information collection under Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number 2137-0034, ``Hazardous 
Materials Shipping Papers and Emergency Response Information.'' We 
anticipate that this final rule will result in an increase in the 
annual information collection burden due to an increase in the number 
of shipping papers prepared for packages containing batteries that 
exceeds the number or quantity (mass) limits in the table shown in 
Sec.  173.185(c)(4), but containing no more than 2.5 kg of lithium 
metal cells or batteries or 10 kg of lithium ion cells or batteries per 
package. Shipments utilizing this allowance currently provide 
alternative documentation containing the name and address of the 
offeror and consignee, the UN number, an indication of compliance with 
this paragraph (c)(4) (or the applicable ICAO Packing Instruction), and 
the number of packages and the gross mass of each package.
    This rulemaking identifies a revised information collection that 
PHMSA will submit to OMB for approval based on the requirements in this 
final rule. PHMSA has developed burden estimates to reflect changes in 
this final rule, and estimates the information collection and 
recordkeeping burden in this rule are as follows:
    OMB Control Number: 2137-0034.
    Annual Increase in Number of Respondents: 150.
    Annual Increase in Annual Number of Responses: 13,167.
    Annual Increase in Annual Burden Hours: 219.
    Annual Increase in Annual Burden Costs: $4,380.
    PHMSA will submit the revised information collection and 
recordkeeping requirements to OMB for approval.

G. Regulation Identifier Number (RIN)

    A regulation identifier number (RIN) is assigned to each regulatory 
action listed in the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulations. The 
Regulatory Information Service Center publishes the Unified Agenda in 
April and October of each year. The RIN contained in the heading of 
this document can be used to cross-reference this action with the 
Unified Agenda.

H. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

    This final rule does not impose unfunded mandates under the 
Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. It does not result in costs of 
$141.3 million or more, adjusted for inflation, to either State, local, 
or tribal governments, in the aggregate, or to the private sector in 
any one year, and is the least burdensome alternative that achieves the 
objective of the rule.

I. Environmental Assessment

    The National Environmental Policy Act, 42 U.S.C. 4321-4375, 
requires that federal agencies analyze actions to determine whether the 
action will have a significant impact on the human environment. The 
Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations require federal 
agencies to conduct an environmental review considering: (1) The need 
for the action; (2) alternatives to the action; (3) probable 
environmental impacts of the action and alternatives; and (4) the 
agencies and persons consulted during the consideration process. 40 CFR 
1508.9(b).
Description of Action
    Docket No. PHMSA-2013-0260 (HM-215M), Final Rule. The 
transportation of hazardous materials in commerce is subject to the 
HMR, issued under authority of Federal hazardous materials 
transportation law, codified at 49 U.S.C. 5001 et seq. To facilitate 
the safe and efficient transportation of hazardous materials in 
international commerce, the HMR provides that both domestic and 
international shipments of hazardous materials may be offered for 
transportation and transported under provisions of the international 
regulations.
Purpose and Need
    This action is necessary to integrate into the HMR recent changes 
to the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code), the 
International Civil Aviation Organization's Technical Instructions for 
the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (ICAO TI), and the United 
Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods--Model 
Regulations (UN Model Regulations) effective January 1, 2015. If the 
changes in this final rule are not adopted in the HMR by this effective 
date, U.S. companies, including numerous small entities competing in 
foreign markets, would be at an economic disadvantage. These companies 
would be forced to comply with a dual system of transport regulations 
that could result in shippers and carriers segmenting domestic and 
international operations to accommodate differing requirements. The 
changes to the HMR contained in this rulemaking are intended to avoid 
this result.
    The intended effect of this action is to align the HMR with 
international hazardous material transport standards and requirements 
to the extent practicable in accordance with Federal Hazardous 
Materials transportation law (49 U.S.C. 5210). When considering the 
adoption of international hazardous material standards under the HMR, 
PHMSA reviews and evaluates each amendment on its own merit, on the 
basis of its overall impact on transportation safety, and the economic 
implications associated with its adoption into the HMR. Our goal is to 
harmonize without diminishing the level of safety currently provided by 
the HMR and without imposing undue burdens on the regulated public.
    In this final rule, PHMSA is amending the HMR to maintain alignment 
with international standards by incorporating various amendments, 
including changes to proper shipping names, hazard classes, packing 
groups, special provisions, packaging authorizations, air transport 
quantity limitations, and vessel stowage requirements. These revisions 
are necessary to harmonize and align the HMR with recent amendments 
adopted in the UN Model Regulations, IMDG Code, and the ICAO TI. The 
amendments in this final rule are intended to facilitate the safe and 
efficient transportation of hazardous materials in international 
commerce, provide clarity to encourage and increase regulatory 
compliance, and improve the efficacy of emergency

[[Page 1110]]

response in the event of a hazardous materials incident.
Alternatives
    In developing this rule, we considered the following alternatives:
No Action Alternative
    If PHMSA chose this alternative, it would not proceed with any 
rulemaking on this subject and the current regulatory standards would 
remain in effect.
Preferred Alternative
    This alternative is the current rule as it appears in this final 
rule, applying to the transportation of hazardous materials by various 
transport modes (highway, rail, vessel and aircraft). The amendments 
included in this alternative are more fully addressed in the preamble 
and regulatory text sections of this final rule. However, they 
generally include:
    (1) Updates to references to various international hazardous 
materials transport standards;
    (2) Amendments to the hazardous materials table to add, revise, or 
remove certain proper shipping names, packing groups, special 
provisions, packaging authorizations, bulk packaging requirements and 
vessel stowage requirements;
    (3) Amendments to add and delete various substances to the list of 
marine pollutants in Appendix B to Sec.  172.101;
    (4) Changes throughout the Part 173 packaging requirements to 
authorize more flexibility when choosing packages for hazardous 
materials;
    (5) An exception from the HMR for marine pollutants up to 5 liters 
(1.3 gallons) for liquids or 5 kg (11 pounds) for solids when these 
materials are packaged in accordance with the general packaging 
requirements of Sec. Sec.  173.24 and 173.24a;
    (6) Minimum sizes for the OVERPACK and SALVAGE markings; and;
    (7) Revisions and additions to vessel stowage codes listed in 
column 10B of the HMT and segregation requirements in Sec.  176.83 
consistent with the IMDG Code.
No Action Alternative
    If PHMSA had selected the No Action Alternative, current 
regulations would remain in place, and no new provisions would be 
added. However, efficiencies gained through harmonization in updates to 
transport standards, lists of regulated substances, definitions, 
packagings, stowage requirements/codes, flexibilities allowed, enhanced 
markings, and segregation requirements would not be realized. Foregone 
efficiencies in the No Action Alternative include freeing up limited 
resources to concentrate on vessel transport hazard communication 
(hazcom) issues of potentially much greater environmental impact.
    Additionally, the Preferred Alternative encompasses enhanced and 
clarified regulatory requirements, which would result in increased 
compliance and fewer environmental and safety incidents. Not adopting 
the proposed environmental and safety requirements in the final rule 
under the No Action Alternative would result in a lost opportunity for 
reducing environmental and safety-related incidents.
    Greenhouse gas emissions would remain the same under the No Action 
Alternative.
Preferred Alternative
    PHMSA selected the preferred alternative. Potential environmental 
impacts of each proposed amendment in the preferred alternative are 
discussed below:
    1. Updates to references to various international hazardous 
materials transport standards, including the 2015-2016 Edition of the 
ICAO TI; Amendment 37-14 to the IMDG Code; the 18th Revised Edition of 
the UN Model Regulations; Amendment 2 to the 5th revised edition of the 
UN Manual of Tests and Criteria; incorporation by reference of the 
Canadian Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations to include 
amendments through Amendment 11 (SOR/2012-245) December 5, 2012 and; 
adding two new references standards and update four other references to 
standards applicable to the manufacture, use, and requalification of 
pressure vessels published by the International Organization for 
Standardization:
    The HMR authorize shipments prepared in accordance with the ICAO TI 
and transported by motor vehicle either before or after being 
transported by aircraft. Similarly, the HMR authorize shipments 
prepared in accordance with the IMDG Code if all or part of the 
transportation is by vessel. The authorizations to use the ICAO TI and 
the IMDG code are subject to certain conditions and limitations 
outlined in part 171 subpart C. PHMSA believes that this adopted 
amendment, which will increase standardization and consistency of 
regulations, will result in greater protection of human health and the 
environment. Consistency between U.S. and international regulations 
enhances the safety and environmental protection of international 
hazardous materials transportation through better understanding of the 
regulations, an increased level of industry compliance, the smooth flow 
of hazardous materials from their points of origin to their points of 
destination, and consistent emergency response in the event of a 
hazardous materials incident.
    Enhanced environmental protection will also be achieved through 
more targeted and effective training. This adopted amendment will 
eliminate inconsistent hazardous materials regulations, which hamper 
compliance training efforts. For ease of compliance with appropriate 
regulations, air and vessel carriers engaged in the transportation of 
hazardous materials generally elect to comply with the ICAO TI and IMDG 
Code as appropriate. By maintaining consistency between these 
international regulations and the HMR, shippers and carriers are able 
to train their hazmat employees in a single set of requirements for 
classification, packaging, hazard communication, handling, stowage, 
etc., thereby minimizing the possibility of improperly preparing and 
transporting a shipment of hazardous materials because of differences 
between domestic and international regulations.
    Greenhouse gas emissions would remain the same under this 
amendment.
    2. Amendments to the HMT to add, revise, or remove certain proper 
shipping names, packing groups, special provisions, packaging 
authorizations, bulk packaging requirements and vessel stowage 
requirements:
    PHMSA believes that this amendment, which will increase 
standardization and consistency of regulations, will result in greater 
protection of human health and the environment. Consistency between 
U.S. and international regulations enhances the safety and 
environmental protection of international hazardous materials 
transportation through better understanding of the regulations, an 
increased level of industry compliance, the smooth flow of hazardous 
materials from their points of origin to their points of destination, 
and consistent emergency response in the event of a hazardous materials 
incident. New and revised entries to the HMT reflect emerging 
technologies, and a need to better describe or differentiate between 
existing entries. These changes mirror changes in the Dangerous Goods 
list of The 18th Revised Edition of the UN Model Regulations, the 2015-
2016 Edition of the ICAO TI and the 37-14 amendments to the IMDG Code. 
It is extremely important for the domestic HMR to mirror the UN Model 
Regulations, the ICAO TI, and the IMDG Code with respect to the entries 
in the

[[Page 1111]]

HMT to ensure consistent naming conventions across modes and 
international borders.
    Enhanced environmental protection will also be achieved through 
more targeted and effective training. This amendment will eliminate 
inconsistent hazardous materials regulations, which hamper compliance 
training efforts. For ease of compliance with appropriate regulations, 
international carriers engaged in the transportation of hazardous 
materials by vessel generally elect to comply with the IMDG Code. By 
maintaining consistency between these international regulations and the 
HMR, shippers and carriers are able to train their hazmat employees in 
a single set of requirements for classification, packaging, hazard 
communication, handling, stowage, etc., thereby minimizing the 
possibility of improperly preparing and transporting a shipment of 
hazardous materials because of differences between domestic and 
international regulations.
    The packing group assignment reflects a degree of danger associated 
with a particular material and identifies appropriate packaging. 
However, assignment of a packing group is not appropriate in all cases 
(e.g. explosives, gases, radioactive material). In such cases the 
packing group does not indicate a degree of danger and the packaging 
requirements for those materials are specified in the appropriate 
section in part 173. Similarly for articles, the packing group only 
reflects the degree of the danger posed by the hazardous component, but 
may not reflect danger of the article itself, which may be 
substantially reduced or changed when compared to shipping the 
hazardous component alone. Currently and without specific rationale, 
some articles are assigned packing groups while others are not. The 
inconsistent application of packing groups to articles can create 
problems for trainers when trying to explain regulatory structure to 
students. This change provides a level of consistency for all articles 
specifically listed in the HMT, without diminishing environmental 
protection and safety.
    For adsorbed gases, PHMSA is adding into the HMR a definition, HMT 
entries, authorized packagings and safety requirements including but 
not limited to quantity limitations and filling limits. PHMSA believes 
that this amendment will result in greater protection of human health 
and the environment by facilitating the safe and efficient transport of 
gases adsorbed onto a porous media within cylinders. This technology 
allows the cylinder to be filled and transported with gas at sub-
atmospheric pressure. Sub-atmospheric transport of gas minimizes 
potential leaks of gas during transportation, thus providing 
significant safety and environmental improvements over traditional 
high-pressure cylinders. This method of transporting gas is a proven 
safe method authorized through a PHMSA special permit for over ten 
years and recently adopted into the UN Model Regulations, the ICAO TI 
and the IMDG Code.
    Greenhouse gas emissions would remain the same under this 
amendment.
    3. Additions and deletions of various substances to/from the list 
of Marine Pollutants in HMR, Appendix B to 172.101:
    As for the above amendments, PHMSA believes that this amendment, 
which will increase standardization and consistency of regulations, 
will result in greater protection of human health and the environment. 
Consistency between U.S. and international regulations enhances the 
safety and environmental protection of international hazardous 
materials transportation through better understanding of the 
regulations, an increased level of industry compliance, the smooth flow 
of hazardous materials from their points of origin to their points of 
destination, and consistent emergency response in the event of a 
hazardous materials incident. The additions and deletions are based on 
the criteria contained in the IMDG code for substances classified as 
toxic to the aquatic environment. The HMR maintain a list as the basis 
for regulating substances toxic to the aquatic environment and allow 
use of the criteria in the IMDG Code if a listed material does not meet 
the criteria for a marine pollutant. PHMSA periodically updates its 
list based on changes to the IMDG code and evaluation of listed 
materials against the IMDG code criteria. Amending the marine pollutant 
list facilitates consistent communication of the presence of marine 
pollutants and safe and efficient transportation without imposing 
significant burden associated with characterizing mixtures as marine 
pollutants.
    Also similar to the above amendments, enhanced environmental 
protection will also be achieved through more targeted and effective 
training. This amendment will eliminate inconsistent hazardous 
materials regulations, which hamper compliance training efforts. For 
ease of compliance with appropriate regulations, international carriers 
engaged in the transportation of hazardous materials by vessel 
generally elect to comply with the IMDG Code. By maintaining 
consistency between these international regulations and the HMR, 
shippers and carriers are able to train their hazmat employees in a 
single set of requirements for classification, packaging, hazard 
communication, handling, stowage, etc., thereby minimizing the 
possibility of improperly preparing and transporting a shipment of 
hazardous materials because of differences between domestic and 
international regulations.
    Greenhouse gas emissions would remain the same under this 
amendment.
    4. Adopting changes throughout the HMR Part 173 packaging 
requirements to authorize more flexibility when choosing packages for 
hazardous materials:
    These changes adopt manufacturing and performance standards for 
small gas pressure receptacles without a relief device, clarify the use 
of the HMT entry ``fire extinguisher'', authorize the use of large 
salvage packagings and provide a list of authorized packagings for 
ammonium nitrate emulsions. As for the above amendments, PHMSA believes 
that these amendments, which increase standardization and consistency 
of regulations, will result in greater protection of human health and 
the environment. Consistency between US and international regulations 
enhances the safety and environmental protection of international 
hazardous materials transportation through better understanding of the 
regulations, an increased level of industry compliance, the smooth flow 
of hazardous materials from their points of origin to their points of 
destination, and consistent emergency response in the event of a 
hazardous materials incident. PHMSA is adopting changes throughout the 
Part 173 packaging requirements to authorize more flexibility when 
choosing packages for hazardous materials. This action is consistent 
with amendments adopted into the UN Model Regulations.
    These amendments permit additional flexibility for authorized 
packages without compromising environmental protection or safety. 
Manufacturing and performance standards for small gas pressure 
receptacles ensure a safe packaging that is capable of retaining its 
contents without being overly prescriptive. The clarification for fire 
extinguishers increases the transparency of the regulations, which will 
in turn result in increased compliance, reduced incidents of undeclared 
or misdeclared hazardous material and enhanced environmental protection 
and safety. Increased flexibility also adds to environmental protection 
by increasing the ease of regulatory compliance.
    Also similar to the above amendments, enhanced environmental

[[Page 1112]]

protection will be achieved through more targeted and effective 
training. This amendment eliminates inconsistent hazardous materials 
regulations, which hamper compliance training efforts. By maintaining 
consistency between the UN Model Regulations and the HMR, shippers and 
carriers are able to train their hazmat employees in a single set of 
requirements for classification, packaging, hazard communication, 
handling, stowage, etc., thereby minimizing the possibility of 
improperly preparing and transporting a shipment of hazardous materials 
because of differences between domestic and international regulations.
    Greenhouse gas emissions would remain the same under this 
amendment.
    5. Exception from the HMR for marine pollutants up to 5 liters (1.3 
gallons) for liquids or 5 kg (11 lbs.) for solids when these materials 
are packaged in accordance with the general packaging requirements of 
Sec. Sec.  173.24 and 173.24a:
    PHMSA believes that this amendment provides for a slight net 
increase in environmental protection and safety by reducing confusion 
and simplifying multi-modal hazardous material transportation 
requirements. Currently, packages containing less than 5 liters (1.3 
gallons) for liquids or 5 kg (11 lbs.) of material containing marine 
pollutants are subject to additional requirements such as shipping 
papers, Class 9 labeling and UN packaging when offered for transport by 
air or vessel in accordance with the ICAO TI or the IMDG Code. However, 
these same materials would not be subject to the HMR when transported 
by motor vehicle, rail car or aircraft in the US. The presence of these 
labels in one mode of transport can cause confusion in the US supply 
chain.
    This amendment exempts from the HMR small packages of hazardous 
material that are regulated because of the presence of one or more 
marine pollutants. Materials in these quantities pose a low risk in 
transportation. In addition, these low quantities of materials present 
even lower risks in transportation because they often contain low 
concentrations of marine pollutant constituents. Lastly, risks of 
incidents are very low. In the past 10 years, in tens of thousands of 
vessel shipments, PHMSA's data contains only one record of marine 
pollutant released on a vessel that caused environmental damage. In 
this incident, the material was packaged in a 55-gallon drum and would 
not be impacted by this amendment, since the package would still be 
required to display the marine pollutant mark and the shipping 
documents would still have to communicate the presence of a marine 
pollutant. By reducing the hazard communication (hazcom) burdens for 
lower risk commodities, industry, shippers, and transporters can focus 
hazcom resources on areas with potentially greater environmental and 
safety consequences.
    This action is consistent with recent revisions to the IMDG Code. 
PHMSA believes that this amendment will increase standardization and 
consistency of regulations, may also result in greater protection of 
human health and the environment. Consistency between US and 
international regulations enhances the safety and environmental 
protection of international hazardous materials transportation through 
better understanding of the regulations, an increased level of industry 
compliance, the smooth flow of hazardous materials from their points of 
origin to their points of destination, and consistent emergency 
response in the event of a hazardous materials incident. Excepting 
these quantities of marine pollutants from the HMR will facilitate 
consistent communication of the presence of marine pollutants and 
facilitate safe and efficient transportation without imposing 
significant burden associated with characterizing mixtures as marine 
pollutants.
    Also similar to the above amendments, enhanced environmental 
protection will also be achieved through more targeted and effective 
training. This amendment will eliminate inconsistent hazardous 
materials regulations, which hamper compliance training efforts. For 
ease of compliance with appropriate regulations, international carriers 
engaged in the transportation of hazardous materials by vessel 
generally elect to comply with the IMDG Code. By maintaining 
consistency between these international regulations and the HMR, 
shippers and carriers are able to train their hazmat employees in a 
single set of requirements for classification, packaging, hazard 
communication, handling, stowage, etc., thereby minimizing the 
possibility of improperly preparing and transporting a shipment of 
hazardous materials because of differences between domestic and 
international regulations.
    Greenhouse gas emissions would remain the same under this 
amendment.
    6. Amendments to add minimum sizes for the OVERPACK and SALVAGE 
markings. These markings would be characters at least 12 mm (.47 
inches) high:
    PHMSA believes that this amendment, which will provide for enhanced 
hazard communication, will result in greater protection of human health 
and the environment. An overpack is an enclosure to provide protection 
or convenience of handling for one or more packages such as pallets and 
crates. A salvage package is used to contain a damaged, leaking or non-
conforming package. The HMR require these packages to be marked 
OVERPACK or SALVAGE, as appropriate. This communicates the nature of 
these specialized packaging configurations to package handlers and 
emergency responders. However, because there is currently no minimum 
size requirement for these marks, this information is not always 
readily visible. This amendment would ensure that these hazard markings 
are visible, thus resulting in decreased incidents with impacts to the 
environment and safety.
    Greenhouse gas emissions would remain the same under this 
amendment.
    7. Amendments to revise and add vessel stowage codes listed in 
column 10B of the HMT and segregation requirements in HMR Sec.  176.83 
consistent with the IMDG Code. These changes are designed to harmonize 
with the IMDG Code and would provide additional guidance on the loading 
and stowage of various materials. Additionally, proposed amendments to 
increase the required segregation distances between Division 4.3 
dangerous when wet material (i.e. materials liable to give off a 
flammable or toxic gas in contact with water) and Class 3 flammable 
liquids and Division 2.1 flammable gases:
    As discussed for previous amendments herein, PHMSA believes that 
this amendment, which will increase standardization and consistency of 
regulations, will result in greater protection of human health and the 
environment. Consistency between US and international regulations 
enhances the safety and environmental protection of international 
hazardous materials transportation through better understanding of the 
regulations, an increased level of industry compliance, the smooth flow 
of hazardous materials from their points of origin to their points of 
destination, and consistent emergency response in the event of a 
hazardous materials incident. New and revised entries to the HMT 
reflect emerging technologies, and a need to better describe or 
differentiate between existing entries. These proposed changes mirror 
the IMDG Code. It is extremely important for the domestic HMR and HMT 
to mirror the IMDG

[[Page 1113]]

Code to ensure consistent naming conventions across modes and 
international borders.
    Enhanced environmental protection will also be achieved through 
more targeted and effective training. This amendment will eliminate 
inconsistent hazardous materials regulations, which hamper compliance 
training efforts. For ease of compliance with appropriate regulations, 
international carriers engaged in the transportation of hazardous 
materials by vessel generally elect to comply with the IMDG Code. By 
maintaining consistency between these international regulations and the 
HMR, shippers and carriers are able to train their hazmat employees in 
a single set of requirements for classification, packaging, hazard 
communication, handling, stowage, etc., thereby minimizing the 
possibility of improperly preparing and transporting a shipment of 
hazardous materials because of differences between domestic and 
international regulations.
    PHMSA also believes that this group of amendments will increase 
environmental protection and safety through its increased segregation 
distance requirements and enhanced guidance, which will better prevent 
materials from contacting each other and/or water in transportation. 
Increased segregation distances prevent the mixing of incompatible 
material and the subsequent evolution of flammable or toxic gases, 
along with attendant fires and explosions. Together, stowage and 
segregation help manage the risks associated with the transport of 
hazardous materials by water. While the risk associated with the 
transport of these materials is relatively low, these measures would 
further reduce that risk and prevent the spread of a fire between 
flammable materials and materials that react dangerously with water.
    Greenhouse gas emissions would remain the same under this 
amendment.
Agencies Consulted
    This final rule represents PHMSA's first action in the US for this 
program area. PHMSA has coordinated with the US Federal Aviation 
Administration and the US Coast Guard, in the development of this final 
rule. PHMSA has considered the views expressed in comments to the NPRM 
submitted by members of the public, state and local governments, and 
industry.
Conclusion
    The provisions of this final rule build on current regulatory 
requirements to enhance the transportation safety and security of 
shipments of hazardous materials transported by highway, rail, aircraft 
and vessel, thereby reducing the risks of an accidental or intentional 
release of hazardous materials and consequent environmental damage. 
PHMSA believes the net environmental impact will be positive. PHMSA 
believes that there are no significant environmental impacts associated 
with this final rule.

J. Privacy Act

    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 553(c), DOT solicits comments from the 
public to better inform its rulemaking process. DOT posts these 
comments, without edit, including any personal information the 
commenter provides, to www.regulations.gov, as described in the system 
of records notice (DOT/ALL-14 FDMS), which can be reviewed at 
www.dot.gov/privacy.

K. Executive Order 13609 and International Trade Analysis

    Under E.O. 13609, agencies must consider whether the impacts 
associated with significant variations between domestic and 
international regulatory approaches are unnecessary or may impair the 
ability of American business to export and compete internationally. In 
meeting shared challenges involving health, safety, labor, security, 
environmental, and other issues, international regulatory cooperation 
can identify approaches that are at least as protective as those that 
are or would be adopted in the absence of such cooperation. 
International regulatory cooperation can also reduce, eliminate, or 
prevent unnecessary differences in regulatory requirements.
    Similarly, the Trade Agreements Act of 1979 (Pub. L. 96-39), as 
amended by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (Pub. L. 103-465), 
prohibits Federal agencies from establishing any standards or engaging 
in related activities that create unnecessary obstacles to the foreign 
commerce of the United States. For purposes of these requirements, 
Federal agencies may participate in the establishment of international 
standards, so long as the standards have a legitimate domestic 
objective, such as providing for safety, and do not operate to exclude 
imports that meet this objective. The statute also requires 
consideration of international standards and, where appropriate, that 
they be the basis for U.S. standards.
    PHMSA participates in the establishment of international standards 
to protect the safety of the American public, and we have assessed the 
effects of the proposed rule to ensure that it does not cause 
unnecessary obstacles to foreign trade. In fact, the rule is designed 
to facilitate international trade. Accordingly, this rulemaking is 
consistent with E.O. 13609 and PHMSA's obligations under the Trade 
Agreement Act, as amended.

    (f) Column 5: Packing group. Column 5 specifies one or more packing 
groups assigned to a material corresponding to the proper shipping name 
and hazard class for that material. Class 2, Class 7, Division 6.2 
(other than regulated medical wastes), and ORM-D materials, do not have 
packing groups. Articles in other than Class 1 are not assigned to 
packing groups. For packing purposes, any requirement for a specific 
packaging performance level is set out in the applicable packing 
authorizations of

[[Page 1117]]

Part 173. Packing Groups I, II and III indicate the degree of danger 
presented by the material is great, medium or minor, respectively. If 
more than one packing group is indicated for an entry, the packing 
group for the hazardous material is determined using the criteria for 
assignment of packing groups specified in subpart D of part 173. When a 
reevaluation of test data or new data indicates a need to modify the 
specified packing group(s), the data should be submitted to the 
Associate Administrator. Each reference in this column to a material 
which is a hazardous waste or a hazardous substance, and whose proper 
shipping name is preceded in Column 1 of the Table by the letter ``A'' 
or ``W'', is modified to read ``III'' on those occasions when the 
material is offered for transportation or transported by a mode in 
which its transportation is not otherwise subject to requirements of 
this subchapter.
* * * * *
    (k) Column 10: Vessel stowage requirements. Column 10A [Vessel 
stowage] specifies the authorized stowage locations on board cargo and 
passenger vessels. Column 10B [Other provisions] specifies codes for 
stowage and handling requirements for specific hazardous materials. 
Hazardous materials offered for transportation as limited quantities 
are allocated stowage category A and are not subject to the stowage 
codes assigned by column 10B. The meaning of each code in Column 10B is 
set forth in Sec.  176.84 of this subchapter. Section 176.63 of this 
subchapter sets forth the physical requirements for each of the 
authorized locations listed in Column 10A. (For bulk transportation by 
vessel, see 46 CFR parts 30 to 40, 70, 98, 148, 151, 153 and 154.) The 
authorized stowage locations specified in Column 10A are defined as 
follows:

37. Revise Sec.  173.166 to read as follows:


Sec.  173.166  Safety devices.

    For the purpose of this section, safety devices are articles which 
contain pyrotechnic substances or hazardous materials of other classes 
and are used in vehicles, vessels or aircraft to enhance safety to 
persons. Examples are: air bag inflators, air bag modules, seat-belt 
pretensioners and pyromechanical devices. Pyromechanical devices are 
assembled components for tasks such as but not limited to separation, 
locking, release-and-drive or occupant restraint. The term includes 
``Safety devices, pyrotechnic.''
    (a) Definitions. An air bag inflator (consisting of a casing 
containing an igniter, a booster material, a gas generant and, in some 
cases, a pressure receptacle (cylinder)) is a gas generator used to 
inflate an air bag in a supplemental restraint system in a motor 
vehicle. An air bag module is the air bag inflator plus an inflatable 
bag assembly. A seat-belt pretensioner contains similar hazardous 
materials and is used in the operation of a seat-belt restraining 
system in a motor vehicle.
    (b) Classification. (1) Safety devices, excluding those which 
contain flammable or toxic gases or mixtures thereof, may be classed as 
Class 9 (UN3268) if the safety device, or if more than a single safety 
device is involved then the representative of the maximum parameters of 
each design type, is examined and successfully tested by a person or 
agency who is authorized by the Associate Administrator to perform 
examination and testing of explosives under Sec.  173.56(b)(1), and 
who:
    (i) Does not manufacture or market explosives or safety devices, is 
not owned in whole or in part, or is not financially dependent upon any 
entity that manufactures or markets explosives or safety devices;
    (ii) Performs all examination and testing in accordance with the 
applicable requirements as specified in special provision 160 (see 
Sec.  172.102 of this subchapter); and
    (iii) Maintains records in accordance with paragraph (g) of this 
section.
    (iv) By adhering to all the provisions specified in paragraph 
(b)(1) of this section, a Class 9 (UN3268) air bag inflator, air bag 
module or seat-belt pretensioner design is not required to be submitted 
to the Associate Administrator for approval or assigned an EX number. 
All other Class 9 (UN3268) safety device designs are required to be 
submitted to the Associate Administrator for approval and assigned an 
EX number;
    (2) A safety device may be classed as Division 1.4G if the maximum 
parameters of each design type have been examined and successfully 
tested by a person or agency who is authorized by the Associate 
Administrator to perform such examination and testing of explosives 
under Sec.  173.56(b)(1). As a Class 1 explosive, the manufacturer must 
submit to the Associate Administrator a report of the examination and 
assignment of a recommended shipping description, division, and 
compatibility group, and if the Associate Administrator finds the 
approval request meets the regulatory criteria, the explosive may be 
approved in writing and assigned an EX number; or
    (3) The manufacturer has submitted an application, including a 
classification issued by the competent authority of a foreign 
government to the Associate Administrator, and received written 
notification from the Associate Administrator that the device has been 
approved for transportation and assigned an EX number.
    (c) EX numbers. (1) When a safety device is classed and approved as 
a Division 1.4G and offered for transportation, the shipping paper must 
contain the EX number or product code for each approved device in 
association with the basic description required by Sec.  172.202(a) of 
this subchapter. Product codes must be traceable to the specific EX 
number assigned to the device by the Associate Administrator. Further, 
if the EX number or product code is contained on the shipping paper 
then it is not required to be marked on the outside package.
    (2) A safety device, when classed as a Class 9 (UN3268), is 
excepted from the EX number, or product code shipping paper 
requirements of paragraph (c) of this section.
    (d) Exceptions. (1) A safety device that is classed as a Class 9 
(UN3268) under the terms of paragraph (b)(1) of this section and is 
installed in a motor vehicle, aircraft, boat or other transport 
conveyance or its completed components, such as steering columns or 
door panels, is not subject to the requirements of this subchapter. A 
safety device that has been classed as a Division 1.4G and approved by 
the Associate Administrator and is installed in a motor vehicle, 
aircraft, boat or other transport conveyance or its completed 
components, such as steering columns

[[Page 1158]]

or door panels, is not subject to the requirements of this subchapter.
    (2) An air bag module containing an inflator that has been 
previously approved by the Associate Administrator for transportation 
is not required to be submitted for further examination or approval. 
For classifications granted after July 30, 2013, if the Class 9 
designation for the inflator is contingent upon packaging or other 
special means specified by the authorized testing agency, the modules 
must be tested and certified separately to determine if they can be 
shipped as ``UN3268, Safety Devices, 9, PG III''.
    (3) An air bag module containing an inflator that has previously 
been approved by the Associate Administrator as a Division 2.2 material 
is not required to be submitted for further examination to be reclassed 
as a Class 9 material.
    (4) Shipments to recycling or waste disposal facilities. When 
offered for domestic transportation by highway, rail freight, cargo 
vessel or cargo aircraft, a serviceable safety device classed as either 
Class 9 (UN3268) or Division 1.4G removed from a motor vehicle that was 
manufactured as required for use in the United States may be offered 
for transportation and transported without compliance with the shipping 
paper requirement prescribed in paragraph (c) of this section. However, 
when these articles are shipped to a recycling facility, the word 
``Recycled'' must be entered on the shipping paper immediately after 
the basic description prescribed in Sec.  172.202 of this subchapter. 
No more than one device is authorized in the packaging prescribed in 
paragraph (e)(1), (2) or (3) of this section. The device must be 
cushioned and secured within the package to prevent movement during 
transportation.
    (5) An air bag inflator, air bag module, or seat-belt pretensioner 
that was classed and approved for transportation prior to January 1, 
2015 may continue to be transported under the terms of the existing 
approval, using the appropriate proper shipping name ``Safety Devices'' 
or ``Safety Devices, Pyrotechnic'' based on the classification of the 
device as assigned by PHMSA or the authorized person or agency that 
examined and tested the design type.
    (6) Until January 1, 2016, for domestic transportation by highway, 
rail, and vessel, packages containing air bag inflators, air bag 
modules, or seat-belt pretensioners may be;
    (i) Marked with either the appropriate proper shipping name, or an 
appropriate proper shipping name authorized by Sec.  172.101 in effect 
on December 31, 2014; and
    (ii) Described on a shipping paper with either the appropriate 
proper shipping name, or an appropriate proper shipping name authorized 
by Sec.  172.101 in effect on December 31, 2014.
    (e) Packagings. Rigid, outer packagings, meeting the general 
packaging requirements of part 173 are authorized as follows. 
Additionally, the UN specification packagings listed in paragraphs 
(e)(1), (2), and (3) of this section must meet the packaging 
specification and performance requirements of part 178 of this 
subchapter at the Packing Group III performance level. The packagings 
must be designed and constructed to prevent movement of the articles 
and inadvertent activation. Further, if the Class 9 designation is 
contingent upon packaging specified by the authorized testing agency, 
shipments of the safety device must be in compliance with the 
prescribed packaging.
    (1) 1A2, 1B2, 1N2, 1D, 1G, or 1H2 drums.
    (2) 3A2, 3B2, or 3H2 jerricans.
    (3) 4A, 4B, 4N, 4C1, 4C2, 4D, 4F, 4G, 4H1, or 4H2 boxes.
    (4) Reusable high-strength containers or dedicated handling 
devices. (i) Reusable containers manufactured from high-strength 
plastic, metal, or other suitable material, or other dedicated handling 
devices are authorized for shipment of safety devices from a 
manufacturing facility to the assembly facility, subject to the 
following conditions:
    (A) The gross weight of the containers or handling devices may not 
exceed 1000 kg (2205 pounds). Containers or handling devices must
