The Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180) specify requirements for the safe and secure transportation of hazardous materials in commerce by rail car, aircraft, vessel, and motor vehicle. These comprehensive regulations govern transportation-related activities by offerors (e.g., shippers, brokers, forwarding agents, freight forwarders, and warehousers); carriers (e.g., common, contract, and private); packaging manufacturers, reconditioners, testers, and retesters; and independent inspection agencies.

The HMR apply to each person who transports hazmat in commerce;

Causes hazmat to be transported or shipped in commerce; or

Represents, marks, certifies, sells, offers, reconditions, tests, repairs, or modifies packagings as qualified for use in the transportation of hazmat.
