Interpretation Response Details
Jan 5, 2004
Mr. Elbert W. Muncy, Jr. Reference No. 03-0289
Attorney at Law
831 W Main Street
Barstow, CA 92311-2649
Dear Mr. Muncy:
This is in response to your letter of November 5, 2003, concerning the Hazardous Materials Registration Program. Specifically, you ask whether separately incorporated, partially owned companies are required to register as separate entities.
The answer is yes. The registration and fee requirements established in 49 CFR Part 107, Subpart G, apply to any person who offers for transportation or transports hazardous materials subject to the applicability criteria in § 107.601. The definition of “person” includes a firm, co-partnership, corporation, company, association, or joint-stock association (see 49 CFR 171.8).
I hope this satisfies your request.
John A. Gale
