Dear Mr. Adams:

This is in response to your September 11, 2003 letter and subsequent telephone conversation with a member of my staff regarding the applicability of the security requirements specified under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR: Parts 171-180).  Specifically, you ask if the security awareness, in-depth security training, and written security plan requirements as specified in Part 172, Subparts H and I are applicable to your company.

Based on the information provided, the security requirements specified in Part 172, Subparts H and I would not be applicable to your company.  Although your company has a current hazardous materials registration certificate, it appears that your company is not an offeror or transporter of hazardous materials.

I hope this satisfies your request.
