Regulatory Update New Hazardous Materials Safety Permit Program Brochure Now Available


An updated version of the Hazardous Materials Safety Permit (HMSP) program brochure is now available on the FMCSA website at www.fmcsa.dot.gov/documents/hazmat/hm-brochure.pdf. This brochure reflects the latest changes to the HMSP program brought about by a June 27, 2012 Federal Register notice that amended certain administrative procedures relevant to the program. Also, the brochure reflects the fact that motor carriers renewing their HMSP can only do so within a 30-day timeframe, and provides, among other contact information, the newly-established HMSP email address that can be used for submission of documents to FMCSA, rather than faxing.
