Dear Mr. Screws:

This is in response to your letter dated October 2, 1998, regarding the applicability ofthe Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180) to shipments of flammable liquids on your company aircraft.

The Department of Transportation governs the transportation of hazardous materials in interstate, foreign, and intrastate commercial movements. Hazardous materials transported aboard your company aircraft are in commerce, and are subject to the HMR. The purpose and scope of the HMR may be found in § 171.1.
