ACTION:

List of applications for modification of exemptions.

SUMMARY:

In accordance with the procedures governing the application for, and the processing of, exemptions from the Department of Transportation's Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR part 107, subpart B), notice is hereby given that the Office of Hazardous Materials Safety has received the applications described herein. This notice is abbreviated to expedite docketing and public notice. Because the sections affected, modes of transportation; and the nature of application have been shown in earlier Federal Register publications, they are not repeated here.

Application numbers with the suffix “M” denote a modification request. These applications have been separated from the new applications for exemptions to facilitate processing.

Records Center, Research and Special Programs Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington, DC 20590.
