Mr. J. Chip Brackett
Freehold Cartage, Inc.

Freehold, NJ 07728


Reference No. 12-0033


Dear Mr. Brackett:


This is in response to your electronic transmission requesting clarification of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR, 171-180) applicable to placarding. Specifically, you request that the polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) mark as required by 40 CFR be authorized to be displayed on a white square-on-point placard. In your letter, you state that authorizing the PCB mark on a white square-on-point placard would allow transporters to display the mark in a uniform manner and would also benefit emergency response personnel by enabling a quick identification of the material.
To request revisions to the HMR requirements, you must submit your request for a rulemaking change in accordance with §§ 106.95 106.100 and 106.105. Once submitted, your request will be evaluated for merit to address in an upcoming rulemaking.


I hope this information is helpful. Please contact this office should you have additional questions.

Sincerely,

 


T. Glenn Foster
Chief, Regulatory Review and Reinvention Branch
Standards and Rulemaking Division
