Mr. David Saporito                Reference No. 03-0068
Director, Hazardous Materials
Landstar System, Inc.
13410 Sutton Park Drive South
Jacksonville, FL 32224

Dear Mr. Saporito:

This responds to your March 6, 2003 letter requesting clarification of the training requirements under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180).  Specifically, you ask if § 172.704 (d) (4) requires the training record to contain the name and address of the individual providing the training or the company that employs the trainer.

Under § 172.704 (d) (4), the training record must contain the name and address of the person (i.e., his/her business address) that provided training.  If the trainer’s home and business address are one in the same then that address must be maintained within the training record.

I hope this satisfies your request.
