Dear Mr. Moore:

This is in response to your e-mails concerning whether or not a plant"s receiving facility is required to develop a security plan under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR 49 CFR Parts 171-180). You state the plant"s employees assist carriers with off-loading bulk packages of hazardous material, as well as other related tasks.

Section 172.800(b) requires each person who offers for transportation or transports in commerce one of the hazardous materials listed in § 172.800(b)(1) through 172.800(b)(7) to develop and implement a security plan. Under the HMR, facilities that receive hazardous materials are not required to have security plans.

I hope this information is helpful.
