Archived Rulemaking: Notification to RSPA of Route Plans for Radioactive Materials Transportation

53fr-16991.pdf (258.8 KB)

This action is being taken to amend 49 CFR 173.22 and 177.825 to require carriers, rather than shippers, to give written notice to RSPA of route plans and other information relating to the transportation by highway of highway route controlled quantities (HRCQ) of radioactive materials. This action is necessary to correct problems related to late and inaccurate information that is being received under the current system. More accurate and timely information will facilitate more effective enforcement of the routing requirements for HRCQ shipments of radioactive materials.
