Notice of Extension of Enforcement Discretion Regarding Hazardous Materials Training Requirements

Wednesday, June 24, 2020

PHMSA understands that social distancing practices enacted by state and local governments in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency has made it difficult for many offerors and carriers of hazardous materials to meet certain training requirements.  As a result, PHMSA, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Federal Railroad Administration, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, and the United States Coast Guard will extend their enforcement discretion for certain hazardous materials training requirements until October 31, 2020.

See the Extended Enforcement Discretion Notice for Hazardous Materials Training Requirements for more information.
