Hazardous Materials: Miscellaneous Amendments; Response to Appeals; Corrections

Correcting amendments.

On July 20, 2011, PHMSA published a final rule under Docket Number PHMSA-2009-0151 (HM-218F) making miscellaneous amendments to the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR parts 171-180). The amendments made by PHMSA in the July 20, 2011 final rule promote safer transportation practices; eliminate unnecessary regulatory requirements; finalize outstanding petitions for rulemaking; facilitate international commerce; and simplify the regulations. This final rule corrects errors in the pictorial display of labels, eliminates references to transitional provisions that were previously removed from the HMR, clarifies shipping paper amendments, corrects an editorial error, and extends the effective date of certain shipping paper amendments adopted in the July 20, 2011 final rule.
