Notices, Terminations & Suspensions
An approval document can only be issued if there is a specific approval citation in the Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR). If there is no specific approval citation, the relief sought from the HMR must be in the form of a special permit.
The Office of Approvals and Permits may modify, suspend or terminate a special permit or approval. This action is taken based on a finding that:
- Based on circumstances, the permit or approval is no longer needed
- The application contained inaccurate information, and the permit or approval would not have been granted if accurate information had been presented
- The application contained deliberately inaccurate or incomplete information
- The special permit or approval holder violated a term of the special permit or approval or an applicable requirement of the regulations demonstrating the holder is not fit to conduct the activity authorized
