Hazardous Materials: New York City Permit Requirements for Transportation of Certain Hazardous Materials
Notice of administrative determination of preemption.
Inspection and Permit Requirement--Federal hazardous material transportation law preempts the Fire Department of the City of New York's permit and inspection requirements, FC 2707.4 and 105.6 (transportation of hazardous materials), with respect to trucks based outside the inspecting jurisdiction, because scheduling and conducting a vehicle inspection (as required for a permit) may cause unnecessary delays in the transportation of hazardous materials from locations outside the City of New York. Permit Fee--Federal hazardous material transportation law preempts FDNY's permit fee requirement.
