SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

RSPA (we) annually reviews the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR parts 171-180) and the procedural regulations associated with the HMR (49 CFR part 107) to identify errors causing confusion to readers. In this final rule, we are correcting typographical errors, incorrect references to other rules and regulations in the CFR, inconsistent use of terminology, and misstatements of certain regulatory requirements. In response to inquiries we received concerning the clarity of particular requirements specified in the HMR, we are also making certain other changes to reduce uncertainties and improve understanding.

Because these amendments do not impose new requirements, notice and public comment procedures are unnecessary. In addition, making these amendments effective without the customary 30-day delay following publication will allow the changes to appear in the next revision of the CFR.

The following is a section-by-section summary of the amendments made under this final rule. It does not discuss all minor editorial corrections (for example, typographical, capitalization and punctuation errors), changes to legal authority citations and certain other minor adjustments intended to enhance the clarity of the HMR.

Section-by-Section Review

Part 107

Sections 107.3 and 107.117

Because of Departmental reorganization, we are revising these sections to replace “Federal Highway Administration” with “Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.”

Section 107.14

We are revising paragraph (a)(1) to provide telephone numbers at which callers may leave recorded messages.

Sections 107.105, 107.219, and 107.329

We are revising these sections to correct miscellaneous typographical errors.

Section 107.127

We are revising paragraph (a) to provide information on certain documents that may be viewed on-line and the Internet address.

Appendix A to Subpart D

We are revising paragraph (c) of Section IV of Appendix A to correct the amount of the maximum civil penalty that may be assessed after January 21, 1997.

Part 171

Section 171.1

We are revising paragraph (a) to remove an outdated reference to intrastate motor carrier transportation.

Section 171.6

We are revising paragraph (b)(2) to revise the table of OMB control numbers to reflect current control numbers, report title and affected sections for collection of information.

Section 171.7

We are revising the table of materials incorporated by reference to remove obsolete references.

Section 171.8

We are revising the definition of “exemption” to substitute “Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration” for “Federal Highway Administration.” In addition, we are removing the definition for “general public” which was incorporated into the HMR in conjunction with the Radioactive Protection Program (RPP) under Docket HM-169B (60 FR 50292), a final rule published on September 28, 1995. In a subsequent final rule published under HM-169B (63 FR 48566) published on September 10, 1998, we removed the RPP requirements; however, we overlooked the removal of the definition for “general public” which was exclusive to the RPP. Finally, we are updating the definition of “preferred route or preferred highway” to correct an outdated CFR citation.

Sections 171.11 and 171.12

We are correcting two miscellaneous typographical errors in these sections.

Section 171.15

In paragraph (a)(2), we are removing outdated CFR references. In paragraph (a)(5) and in the introductory text in paragraph (b), we are correcting the name of the organization that receives the incident notifications.

Part 172

Section 172.101

In paragraph (g), we are adding a sentence to clarify that requirements for applying EMPTY labels are in § 173.428. In the paragraph (g) table, we are adding an entry for the INFECTIOUS SUBSTANCE label that had been inadvertently omitted.

The Hazardous Materials Table (HMT)

We are amending the HMT by correcting various typographical, capitalization and punctuation errors. We are correcting certain other errors such as removing obsolete reference (“see”) entries and obsolete ID numbers appearing in the italicized portion of certain proper shipping names. In addition, we are correcting the order of the qualifying words “flammable” and “toxic” for the following proper shipping names: “Pyrethroid pesticide, liquid, toxic, flammable, flash point less than 23 degrees C,” UN3350; “Pyrethroid pesticide, liquid, flammable, toxic, flash point not less than 23 degrees C,” UN3351; “Thiocarbamate pesticide, liquid, flammable, toxic, flash point not less than 23 degrees C,” UN3005; and “Triazine pesticides, liquid, flammable, toxic, flash point less than 23 degrees C,” UN2764. The qualifying words “flammable” and “toxic” were printed in the incorrect order under a final rule, HM-215C (64 FR 10742) published on March 5, 1999. Although the corrected order is the preferred order, as provided in § 172.101(c)(4), when qualifying words are used as part of the proper shipping name, their sequence is optional for markings and shipping paper descriptions. For two reference (“see”) entries, we are removing the Start Printed Page 58615word “commercial.” Under HM-215C, we removed the word from certain Class 1 (explosive) material entries, however, failed to remove the word from the reference entries. Some HMT revisions appear as “remove” and “add” and, therefore, readers should review all regulatory text revisions for a complete view of the changes.

Appendices A and B to § 172.101

In Table 1 to Appendix A, we are correcting several printing errors. We are removing the first of two duplicate entries for “DDE” and “4,4′-DDE.” In addition, we are adding reportable quantity (RQ) entries for four materials for which RQs were omitted. In Appendix B, we are removing three asterisks from the entry for “PCBs” that were originally included in error.

Section 172.102

We are revising Special Provision A52 to change the phrase “Type I shipping containers” to “Category I shipping containers.” This change makes the language of the special provision consistent with the terminology used in Air Transport Association Specification 300.

In paragraph (c)(2), we are revising Special Provision B13 to correct CFR references changed by revisions to the cargo tank specifications. We are revising Special Provision B14 to remove an expired transition provision.

Section 172.203

We are revising paragraph (d) of this section to remove an obsolete provision for describing activity levels for packages of radioactive materials.

Section 172.310

We are correcting a typographical error in paragraph (a).

Section 172.400a

We are revising paragraph (a)(7) to clarify that the exception from labeling in § 173.427(a)(6)(vi) also applies to surface contaminated objects.

Section 172.403

We are revising paragraph (a) to remove the reference to § 173.428 which was revised and is no longer relevant to the labeling requirements specified in § 172.403. In addition, we are revising paragraph (g) to remove an obsolete provision for labeling packages of radioactive materials.

Section 172.505

We are revising paragraph (a) to correct the section reference “ “§ 172.203(m)(3)” to “ § 172.203(m)(2)”.

Section 172.556

We are revising paragraph (a) to correct the illustration for the RADIOACTIVE placard to show that the yellow background color on the top half of the placard may extend only to the inner border. This revision makes the placard illustration consistent with placard specification prescribed in § 172.519(d)(4).

Section 172.558

We are revising paragraph (a) to correct the illustration for the CORROSIVE placard to show that the base of the white triangle in the upper portion of the placard must be 38 mm ± 5 mm (1.5 inches ± 0.2 inches) above the placard horizontal center line, as prescribed in paragraph (b).

Section 172.604

We are revising paragraph (a) to remove the reference to a “24-hour” emergency response telephone number. Consistent with § 172.604(b), the emergency response telephone number must be monitored at all times the hazardous material is in transportation, which may not be 24 hours in all situations.

Part 173

Section 173.4

We are amending this section to add a note following paragraph (a)(6) that was inadvertently removed due to a printing error in an earlier revision.

Section 173.7

We are revising paragraph (e), added under Docket HM-218, August 18, 2000, (65 FR 50460), effective October 1, 2000, to clarify the marking and labeling requirements for certain Class 1 explosives owned by the Department of Defense (DOD) and packaged prior to January 1, 1990. In the preamble, in Docket HM-218, we stated that the explosives were excepted from the current marking and labeling requirements, provided they are marked and labeled in conformance with the requirements of the HMR that were in effect at the time they were originally marked and labeled.

Section 173.12

We are revising this section to remove paragraph (d)(2), which references a provision that no longer appears in § 172.203(m).

Section 173.27

We are revising paragraph (b)(4) to correct the paragraph reference for the CARGO AIRCRAFT ONLY label from “§ 172.402(b)” to “§ 172.402(c)”.

Section 173.31

We are revising paragraph (b)(6)(ii) to update the address to which required tank car reports must be submitted.

Section 173.32

We are editorially revising paragraph (a)(1) for clarity. In addition, we are correcting section references related to the portable tank specifications in part 178.

Section 173.34

We are revising paragraph (h) to correct outdated CFR references.

Section 173.62

We are relocating text for entry 137 in the table of packing methods from column 3 to column 4 to correct a printing error. In addition, in paragraph (c), in footnote (1)(e)(iv) following the table, we are correcting a CFR reference.

Section 173.128

In paragraph (d)(1)(ii), we are correcting a CFR reference.

Section 173.132

We are revising paragraph (a)(1)(iii)(B) for consistency with the table in § 173.133(a)(2)(i). In paragraph (c)(3), we are correcting a typographical error in the formula.

Section 173.159

We are revising paragraph (a) to specify that electric storage batteries may not be packed with other materials except as provided in paragraphs (g) and (h) of this section and in §§ 173.220 and 173.222. The reference to paragraph (g) was inadvertently omitted due to a printing error.

Section 173.166

We are revising paragraph (d)(3), added under Docket HM-218 (65 FR 50461) to provide for the transportation of a recycled air bag module or a seat belt pretensioner by rail freight and cargo vessel. In the preamble of Docket HM-218, we stated that the amendment will facilitate transportation of these devices for recycling and eliminate the need for exemption DOT-E 12189 granted to the Automotive Recyclers Association and several other grantees. During the HM-218 rulemaking proceedings, RSPA revised the exemption to authorize rail freight and cargo vessel as additional authorized modes of transportation. In this final rule, we are amending paragraph (d)(3) to reflect the revision to the exemption. Start Printed Page 58616

Sections 173.181, 173.224, 173.225, 173.304, and 173.306

We are making changes to remove or replace outdated CFR references.

Section 173.315

Effective December 31, 1990, the MC 331 cargo tank specification in § 178.337 was revised. Among other revisions, requirements for emergency discharge control systems previously located in § 178.337-11(c) were revised and moved to § 178.337-11(a). However, through an oversight, Note 16 to the table in § 173.315(a), which required MC 330 and MC 331 to be equipped with emergency discharge controls conforming to § 178.337-11(c), was not revised. Effective July 1, 1999, the MC 331 cargo tank specification in § 178.337 was again revised. Among other revisions, requirements for emergency discharge control systems previously located in § 178.337-11(a) were rewritten and provisions applicable to opening, inlets, and outlets were relocated to § 178.337-8(a). Note 16 to the table in § 173.315(a) was not revised to account for the 1999 changes in §§ 178.337-8 and 178.337-11. This final rule revises § 173.315(a) to require openings, inlets, and outlets on MC 330 and MC 331 cargo tanks to conform to § 178.337-8(a) and to require MC 330 and MC 331 cargo tanks to be equipped with emergency discharge control systems that conform to § 178.337-11(a).

In addition, we are revising paragraphs (f) and (o) to correct a reference.

We are also revising paragraph (i)(4) to correct a typographical error in the second sentence. The sentence is corrected to indicate that the start-to-discharge value, not valve, must be visible after the valve is installed.

Paragraph (n)(5)(iii) includes an inadvertent reference to non-specification cargo tanks authorized under paragraph (k) of § 173.315. Paragraph (n)(5)(iii) requires certain cargo tanks in metered delivery service with capacities over 3,500 gallons to be equipped with emergency discharge control equipment by the dates specified. Non-specification cargo tanks authorized for use under § 173.315(k) are limited to capacities of 3,500 gallons or less. This final rule removes the inadvertent reference to non-specification cargo tanks.

Section 173.319

We are revising paragraphs (c) and (d)(2) to correct outdated CFR references.

Section 173.403

For consistency with the proper shipping name listed in the § 172.101 Hazardous Materials Table, we are revising the wording for the definition “Radioactive instrument and article” to read “Radioactive instrument or article.”

Section 173.417

In paragraph (b)(1) Table 4 and in paragraph (b)(2)(ii) Table 5, we are replacing the symbol “<=” with the universally acknowledged symbol “≤.”

Section 173.425

We are correcting the entry for “Gases” in Table 7 by replacing the entry “Other form” with “Normal form.” “Other form” is not a defined category in the regulations.

Section 173.427

In paragraph (c)(2)(i), we are removing an outdated CFR reference.

Section 173.435

We are revising two references in the table to correct printing errors.

Part 174

Section 174.290

We are correcting an outdated CFR reference in paragraph (b)(1).

Part 176

Section 176.78

The last sentence, in § 176.78(h)(8), that makes reference to former § 176.79 is removed.

Section 176.104

In paragraph (g), we are removing an obsolete section reference.

Section 176.166

We are revising paragraph (a)(2) to correct the section reference “§ 176.143 (b)(2)” by replacing it with “§ 176.142 (b)(2)”.

Sections 176.410 and 176.415

In these sections, we are revising the incorrect UN identification number “UN 2072” by replacing it with “NA 2072.”

Section 176.905

We are revising paragraph (j) to correct an outdated CFR reference.

Part 177

Section 177.835

Based on comments from the Institute of Makers of Explosives, we are removing outdated CFR references in paragraph (h), and revising paragraph (g). The phrase “explosives for blasting” is replaced with the term “Division 1.5” and a reference to “Class A, B and C explosives” is removed.

Section 177.843

In paragraph (c), we are correcting the section reference for Class 7 (radioactive) material incidents by adding §§ 171.15 and 171.16.

Section 177.854

The introductory text in paragraph (d) references sections of part 177 that were removed in a previous revision. This final rule removes these references.

Part 178

Section 178.37

We are revising an outdated CFR reference in paragraph (g)(4).

Section 178.44

In paragraph (b), in Table 1—Authorized Materials, for specification 3HT seamless steel cylinders for aircraft use, we are correcting an error for the entry “Molybdenum” by revising the specification “0.15/.025” to read “0.15/0.25.”

Section 178.65

In paragraph (i), we are removing an outdated CFR reference.

Section 178.337-3

We are revising paragraphs (e) and (g)(2) to include metric measurements for the metal thicknesses specified.

Sections 178.345-3, 178.345-10, 178.345-13, 178.346, 178.346-1, 178.347-1, and 178.348-1

We are revising several paragraphs in these sections to correct CFR references changed by revisions to the cargo tank specifications.

Section 178.356-1

In paragraph (c), we are correcting an incorrect reference to obsolete § 178.118-8(b) for shell closure requirements. We are redesignating current paragraph (d) as paragraph (e) and adding in new paragraph (d) the closure requirements formerly contained in obsolete § 178.118-8(b).

Section 178.606

We are revising paragraph (c)(1) to make minor editorial changes.

Section 178.703

We are revising paragraph (a)(1)(i) to correct an outdated CFR reference. Start Printed Page 58617

Part 179

Sections 179.100-1, 179.100-3, 179.100-9, 179.100-13, 179.102-4 and 179.220

We are correcting several outdated CFR references in these sections.

Section 179.301

In paragraph (a), in the table we are revising the entry for “Bursting pressure, p.s.i” to remove an outdated CFR reference and clarify that the entry refers to the minimum required bursting pressure.

Sections 179.400-6 and 179.401-1

We are revising several outdated CFR references in these sections.

Part 180

Section 180.352

We are revising paragraph (b)(3)(ii) to correct a CFR reference.

Section 180.405

We are revising several paragraphs in this section to correct CFR references changed by revisions to the cargo tank specifications.

Section 180.407

Effective July 1, 2000, paragraph (h) was revised to add a delivery hose assembly and piping test to the leakage test requirements for MC 330, MC 331, and non-specification cargo tank authorized under § 173.315(k). Paragraph (h)(4) includes a requirement for record keeping to document the results of the tests. The inclusion of the term “original hose assembly” in reference to the date of the tests in paragraph (h)(4) was inadvertent. To comply with the record keeping requirements in this paragraph, a Registered Inspector must note the hose identification number of the hose being tested, the date of the test, and the condition of the hose assembly and piping system tested. Paragraph (h)(4) is revised in this final rule to correct this inadvertent error.

Section 180.519

In paragraphs (b)(1) and (c), we are revising several outdated CFR references.

Regulatory Analyses and Notices

A. Executive Order 12866 and DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures

This final rule is not considered a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 and, therefore, was not reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. This rule is not significant according to the Regulatory Policies and Procedures of the Department of Transportation (44 FR 11034). Because of the minimal economic impact of this rule, preparation of a regulatory impact analysis or a regulatory evaluation is not warranted.

B. Executive Order 13132

This final rule has been analyzed in accordance with the principles and criteria contained in Executive Order 13132 (“Federalism”). This final rule does preempt State, local, and Indian tribe requirements but does not adopt any regulation that has substantial direct effects on the States, the relationship between the national government and the States, or the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. Therefore, the consultation and funding requirements of Executive Order 13132 do not apply.

The Federal hazardous materials transportation law, 49 U.S.C. 5101-5127, contains an express preemption provision (49 U.S.C. 5125 (b)) that preempts State, local, and Indian tribe requirements on certain covered subjects. Covered subjects are:

(i) The designation, description, and classification of hazardous materials;

(ii) The packing, repacking, handling, labeling, marking, and placarding of hazardous materials;

(iii) The preparation, execution, and use of shipping documents related to hazardous materials and requirements related to the number, contents, and placement of those documents;

(iv) The written notification, recording, and reporting of the unintentional release in transportation of hazardous material; or (

(v) The design, manufacture, fabrication, marking, maintenance, recondition, repair, or testing of a packaging or container represented, marked, certified, or sold as qualified for use in transporting hazardous material.

This final rule addresses covered subject items (i), (ii), (iii), (iv), and (v) above and preempts State, local, and Indian tribe requirements not meeting the “substantively the same” standard. This final rule is necessary to enhance the accuracy and reduce misunderstandings of the HMR.

Federal hazardous materials transportation law provides at 5125(b)(2) that, if DOT issues a regulation concerning any of the covered subjects, DOT must determine and publish in the Federal Register the effective date of Federal preemption. The effective date may not be earlier than the 90th day following the date of issuance of the final rule and not later than two years after the date of issuance. RSPA has determined that the effective date of Federal preemption for these requirements will be 90 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register.

C. Executive Order 13084

This final rule has been analyzed in accordance with the principles and criteria contained in Executive Order 13084 (“Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments”). Because this final rule does not significantly or uniquely affect the communities of the Indian tribal governments and does not impose substantial direct compliance costs, the funding and consultation requirements of this Executive Order 13084 do not apply.

D. Regulatory Flexibility Act

I certify that the requirements adopted in this final rule are applicable to a substantial number of small businesses, but that the economic impact on these small businesses will not be significant. This rule makes minor editorial changes which will not impose any new requirements on persons subject to the HMR; thus, there are no direct or indirect adverse economic impacts for small units of government, businesses or other organizations.

E. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995

This rule does not impose unfunded mandates under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. It does not result in costs of $100 million or more to either State, local, or tribal governments, in the aggregate, or to the private sector, and is the least burdensome alternative that achieves the objective of the rule.

F. Paperwork Reduction Act

Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, no person is required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. There are no new information collection requirements in this final rule.

G. Regulation Identifier Number (RIN)

A regulation identifier number (RIN) is assigned to each regulatory action listed in the Unified Agenda of Federal Regulations. The Regulatory Information Service Center publishes the Unified Agenda in April and October of each year. The RIN number contained in the heading of this document can be used to cross-reference this action with the Unified Agenda.
