Dear Ms. Brooks,

This is in response to your January 21, 2005 letter regarding the applicability of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180) to the transport of fuels and other items solely for military purposes in Department of Defense-owned and -operated vehicles.

The transport of hazardous materials in military or government vehicles operated by military or government personnel solely for noncommercial purposes is not subject to the HMR. However, if the purpose is commercial, or if the government entity offers hazardous material for transportation to commercial carriers, then the HMR would apply.

I hope this information is helpful.
