AGENCY:

Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), DOT.

ACTION:

Final rule.

SUMMARY:

On December 20, 2004, the Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA)—the predecessor agency to the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA)—published a final rule under Docket Number RSPA-04-17036 (HM-215G) amending the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) to maintain alignment with international standards by incorporating various amendments, including changes to proper shipping names, hazard classes, packing groups, special provisions, packaging authorizations, air transport quantity limitations and vessel stowage requirements. Because of recent changes to the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code), the International Civil Aviation Organization's Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (ICAO Technical Instructions), and the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (UN Recommendations), these revisions are necessary to facilitate the transport of hazardous materials in international commerce. This final rule corrects errors in the December 20, 2004 final rule.

DATES:

Effective Date: The effective date of these amendments is June 14, 2005.

Delayed Compliance Date: Unless otherwise specified, compliance with the amendments adopted in this final rule is required beginning January 1, 2006.

I. Background

On December 20, 2004, the Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA)—the predecessor agency to the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA, we)—published a final rule under Docket HM-215G (69 FR 76044) revising the HMR to maintain alignment with recent changes corresponding provisions in international standards. Changes to the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code), the International Civil Aviation Organization's Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (ICAO Technical Instructions), and the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (UN Recommendations) necessitated amendments to domestic regulations to provide consistency and facilitate the transport of hazardous materials in international commerce. This final rule corrects various errors made during the development of the December 20, 2004 final rule and printing process. Because the amendments adopted herein impose no new regulatory burden on any person, these amendments are being made effective without the usual 30-day delay following publication.

Section 172.102

We are correcting entries in the Special Provisions as follows:

  • In paragraph (c)(1), Special Provision 173 is added. In the final rule we adopted an array of new generic UN entries for organometallic substances to harmonize with the UN Recommendations. These new generic entries are intended to be used for all organometallic substances, with all existing generic entries covering these substances being deleted. Consistent with the UN Recommendations, the final rule removed certain existing generic entries covering these materials, while certain entries for these materials were temporarily retained. The entries concerned are UN1366, UN1370, UN2005, UN2445, UN3051, UN3052, UN3076, UN3433 and UN3461. In the final rule, we included a statement in the preamble (69 FR 76048) stating our intent to remove these entries effective January 1, 2007.

However, in the UN Recommendations, Special Provision 320 was added to each of the affected entries scheduled for removal in 2007 that allows the appropriate new generic organometallic substances entry to be used in place of the technical name entry irrespective of the requirements in 2.0.2.2 of the UN Recommendations (which would otherwise require use of the technical name entry). The final rule, in error, failed to adopt a similar provision to that in UN Special Provision 320. Consequently, § 172.101(c)(12)(ii) would appear to preclude use of the new generic entries until such time the technical name entries are removed from the Hazardous Materials Table. Therefore, we are correcting this inconsistency by adding to the affected entries a Special Provision 173 stating that “An appropriate generic entry may be used.”

  • In paragraph (c)(3), in Special Provision B69, we are correcting the last sentence by adding the word “be” after the word “must” and before the word “approved.” During the printing process the word “be” was inadvertently omitted.
  • In paragraph (c)(4), in the “Table 1—IB Codes,” in the first column, under Start Printed Page 34385the heading “IBC Code,” the wording “B2” is corrected to read “IB2.” The typographical error occurred during the printing process.
  • In paragraph (c)(4), in the “Table 1—IB Codes,” in the second column, under the heading “Authorized IBCs,” in the Additional Requirement entry for “IB3,” the reference to “Table 3” is corrected to read “Table 2.” The typographical error occurred during the printing process.
  • In paragraph (c)(7), in the “Table of Portable Tank T Codes T1-T22,” in the fifth column, the first entry “§ 178.275(d)(2)0” is corrected to read “§ 178.275(d)(2).” The typographical error occurred during the printing process.
  • In paragraph (c)(8), in portable tank special provision “TP3,” the formula is corrected by revising “dr” and “df” to read “d r” and “d f.” The typographical error occurred during the printing process.

Section 172.202

In paragraph (a)(5)(i), in the first sentence, the wording “For Class I materials” is corrected to read “For Class 1 materials”. The typographical error occurred during the printing process.

Section 172.203

Paragraph (m)(2) is revised to clarify that the phrase “Poison-Inhalation Hazard” or “Toxic Inhalation Hazard” need not be added to the shipping description if the words “Poison Inhalation” or “Toxic Inhalation” otherwise appear in the shipping description.

Part 173

Section 173.3

In the December 20, 2004 final rule, we revised the requirements for use of salvage drums to include the term “non-conforming.” The term “non-conforming” was added to the UN Model Regulations by the UN Committee of Experts in 2000. Our intent in the final rule was to allow the use of salvage drums for non-conforming packages, but to limit such use to instances where the packages were discovered to be non-conforming after having been placed in transportation. However, we inadvertently applied the limitation to damaged, defective, and leaking packages as well as to non-conforming packages. We are therefore revising 173.3(c) to clarify that damaged, defective, or leaking packages may be transported in salvage drums under the specified conditions irrespective of whether such packages are discovered before or after having been place in transportation. This would allow, for example, a package found leaking at a fixed storage facility to be transported in a salvage drum for purposes of recovery or disposal.

Section 173.25

In § 173.25, paragraph (a)(4) is revised to clarify that overpacks marked with an indication that inner containers comply with prescribed specification may be used to satisfy the “OVERPACK” marking until October 1, 2007. The “inner container comply with prescribed specifications” marking remains in effect for cylinders or containers packaged in a strong non-bulk outer packaging that are specifically required elsewhere in this part to be marked in this manner.

Section 173.115

In § 173.115, we are making the following corrections:

  • In paragraph (a)(2), the last sentence is corrected to reference “§ 173.115(k)” regarding the flammability tests for aerosols.
  • In paragraph (k)(3), a grandfather provision that would authorize an aerosol that was tested prior to January 1, 2006 in accordance with the requirements in effect on December 31, 2005 is not required to be retested.

The wording was inadvertently omitted.

Section 173.151

In § 173.151, in paragraph (c), in the first sentence, the wording “171.8” is corrected to read “§ 171.8.” The typographical error occurred during the printing process.

Section 173.185

In § 173.185, in paragraph (e)(6), in the second sentence, the wording “of a design type” is added after the word “battery” and before the word “which.” The wording was inadvertently omitted during the printing process.

Section 173.212

In § 173.212, in paragraph (c), the entry “Glass, porcelain or stoneware in steel, aluminum, wooden or fiberboard box: 6PA2, 6PB1, 6PC or 6PG2” is corrected to read “Glass, porcelain or stoneware in steel, aluminum, wooden or fiberboard box: 6PA2, 6PB2, 6PC or 6PG2.” A typographical error occurred during the printing process.

Section 173.213

In § 173.213, in paragraph (c), the entry “Glass, porcelain or stoneware in steel, aluminum, wooden or fiberboard box: 6PA2, 6PB1, 6PC or 6PG2” is corrected to read “Glass, porcelain or stoneware in steel, aluminum, wooden or fiberboard box: 6PA2, 6PB2, 6PC or 6PG2.” A typographical error occurred during the printing process.

Section 173.220

In § 173.220, we are making the following corrections:

  • In paragraph (a)(3), the reference to paragraph “(d)(1)” is corrected to read “(e)(1).”
  • In paragraph (g), the reference to paragraph “(d)(2)” is corrected to read “(e)(2).”

These typographical errors occurred during the printing process.

Section 173.225

In § 173.225, we are making the following corrections:

  • In paragraph (c)(8), in the “Organic Peroxide Table,” for the entry “Dicumyl peroxide, UN3110, the number “9” is added to “column 8.”
  • In paragraph (c)(8), in the “Organic Peroxide Table,” under “Notes,'' Note 12 is corrected by revising the reference to “paragraph (c)(2)” to read “paragraph (b)(2).” In paragraph (g), in the “Organic Peroxide Portable Tank Table,” for the entry “ORGANIC PEROXIDE, TYPE F, LIQUID, UN3109,” the word “than” is added immediately after the word “more” and before the wording “72%” for the entries “Isopropyl cumyl hydroperoxide, not more 72% in diluent type A” and “p-Menthyl hydro-peroxide, not more 72% in diluent type A,” respectively.
  • Paragraph (h)(3)(xii) is revised specify that DOT 57 metal portable tanks are authorized for those materials that are provided with a reference to Note 9 in Column 8 of the Organic Peroxide Table and that when authorized these tanks must conform to the venting requirements specified in § 173.225(f). In the NPRM, we proposed to remove “Note 9.” However, as a result of comments received on the NPRM that proposal was not adopted.
  • In the December 20, 2004 final rule, we added Note 29 to the notes following the Organic Peroxide Table. The note was used to identify materials which are found in the HMR, but not included in the UN Model Regulations, IMDG Code, and the ICAO Technical Instructions and to indicate that a Competent Authority approval is required for international transportation. However, it is not our policy to require approvals for organic peroxide formulations listed in the HMR but not in the international regulations. Therefore, Note 29 is being removed. However, in accordance with §§ 171.11(d)(17), 171.12(b)(20), and Start Printed Page 34386171.12a(b)(18) a Competent Authority approval, issued by the Associate Administrator, is still required for shipments of organic peroxides which are not identified by technical name in the Organic Peroxide Table (also see § 173.128(d)).

Section 173.227

In § 173.227, paragraph (b)(1) is being reinstated. This paragraph was inadvertently omitted during the printing process.

Section 173.313

In § 173.313, in the “UN Portable Tank Table for Liquefied Compressed Gases,” the following corrections are made:

  • Immediately following the entry “Methyl chloride and methylene chloride mixture, UN1912,” in the first and second columns respectively, the wording “1954” and “n.o.s.” are removed. In addition, in the sixth column the wording “0.81194” is corrected to read “0.81.”
  • Immediately following the entry “Insecticide gases, flammable,” in the first and second columns, the wording “1954” and “n.o.s.” are added respectively. These typographical errors occurred during the printing process.

Part 175

Section 175.30

In § 175.30, paragraph (a)(5) is removed. Paragraph (a)(5) required hazardous materials being accepted for transportation aboard an aircraft to be marked with the air eligibility marking in accordance with § 172.321. In the final rule (69 FR 76154), we removed the requirement for shippers to mark packages acceptable for air transport with the air eligibility marking.

Part 176

Section 176.83

In § 176.83, in paragraph (l)(3), in the “Segregation of Cargo Transport Units on Board Hatchless Container Ships,” the following corrections are made:

  • For the entry “Away from,” the first word in the tenth and eleventh columns are corrected to read “One.”
  • For the entry “Separated by a complete compartment or hold from,” in the tenth column, in the second sentence, the word “Tree” is corrected to read “Three.” The typographical errors occurred during the printing process.

Part 178

Section 178.274

In § 178.274, in paragraph (f)(1)(v), the wording “(IBR, see § 171.1 of this subchapter)” is corrected to read “(IBR, see § 171.7 of this subchapter).” The typographical error occurred during the printing process.

Part 180

Section 180.352

In the final rule, we added a new paragraph (d)(1)(v) authorizing retests and inspections performed under paragraphs (d)(1)(i) and (d)(1)(ii) of this section to be used to satisfy the tests and inspections required of paragraph (b) of this section. However, an editorial error occurred during the printing process that caused the text in new paragraph (d)(1)(v) to be repeated in paragraph (d)(1)(iv). Additionally, the editorial error in paragraph (d)(1)(iv) created an incorrect lead-in to subparagraphs (A) and (B) that follow. The original intent of this change was to keep the “repair” and “routine maintenance” requirements in this section separate. Therefore, we are revising paragraph (d)(1)(iv) to correct this editorial error.

III. Regulatory Analyses and Notices

A. Statutory/Legal Authority for This Rulemaking

This final rule is published under the following statutory authorities:

1. 49 U.S.C. 5103(b) authorizes the Secretary of Transportation to prescribe regulations for the safe transportation, including security, of hazardous material in intrastate, interstate, and foreign commerce. This final rule corrects various errors made during the development of the December 20, 2004 final rule and printing process. To this end, as discussed in detail earlier in this preamble, the December 20, 2004 final rule amended the HMR to more fully align it with the biennial updates of the UN Recommendations, the IMDG Code and the ICAO Technical Instructions to facilitate the transport of hazardous materials in international commerce.

2. 49 U.S.C. 5120(b) authorizes the Secretary of Transportation to ensure that, to the extent practicable, regulations governing the transportation of hazardous materials in commerce are consistent with standards adopted by international authorities. This final rule corrects various errors made during the development of the December 20, 2004 final rule and printing process. To this end, as discussed in detail earlier in this preamble, the December 20, 2004 final rule incorporates changes into the HMR based on the Thirteenth Revised Edition of the UN Recommendation, Amendment 32 to the IMDG Code, and the 2005-2006 ICAO Technical Instructions, which became effective January 1, 2005. The continually increasing amount of hazardous materials transported in international commerce warrants the harmonization of domestic and international requirements to the greatest extent possible. Harmonization serves to facilitate international transportation; at the same time, harmonization ensures the safety of people, property, and the environment by reducing the potential for confusion and misunderstanding that could result if shippers and transporters were required to comply with two or more conflicting sets of regulatory requirements. While the intent of this rulemaking is to align the HMR with international standards, we review and consider each amendment on its own merit based on its overall impact on transportation safety and the economic implications associated with its adoption into the HMR. Our goal is to harmonize without sacrificing the current HMR level of safety and without imposing undue burdens on the regulated public. Thus, as discussed in detail in the preamble of the December 20, 2004 final rule, there were several instances where we elected not to adopt a specific provision of the UN Recommendations, the IMDG Code or the ICAO Technical Instructions; further, we are maintaining a number of current exceptions for domestic transportation that should minimize the compliance burden on the regulated community.

B. Executive Order 12866 and DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures

This final rule is not a significant regulatory action under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866 and was not reviewed by the Office of Management and Budget. This final rule is a non-significant rule under the Regulatory Policies and Procedures of the Department of Transportation [44 FR 11034]. The revisions adopted in this final rule do not alter the cost-benefit analysis and conclusions contained in the Regulatory Evaluation prepared for the December 20, 2004 final rule. The Regulatory Evaluation is available for review in the public docket for this rulemaking.

C. 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 preempts State, local and Indian tribe requirements but does not propose 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 Start Printed Page 34387levels of government. Therefore, the consultation and funding requirements of Executive Order 13132 do not apply.

The Federal hazardous material 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:

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

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

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

(4) The written notification, recording, and reporting of the unintentional release in transportation of hazardous materials; and

(5) 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 (1), (2), (3), and (5) above and preempts State, local, and Indian tribe requirements not meeting the “substantively the same” standard. This final rule is necessary to incorporate changes adopted in international standards, effective January 1, 2005. If the changes in this final rule are not adopted in the HMR, U.S. companies, including numerous small entities competing in foreign markets, are at an economic disadvantage. These companies are forced to comply with a dual system of regulations. The changes in this rulemaking are intended to avoid this result. Federal hazardous materials transportation law provides at section 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. The effective date of Federal preemption is September 12, 2005.

D. Executive Order 13175

This final rule was analyzed in accordance with the principles and criteria contained in Executive Order 13175 (“Consultation and Coordination with Indian Tribal Governments”). Because this final rule does not have tribal implications, does not impose substantial direct compliance costs, and is required by statute, the funding and consultation requirements of Executive Order 13175 do not apply.

E. Regulatory Flexibility Act, Executive Order 13272, and DOT Procedures and Policies

The Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) requires an agency to review regulations to assess their impact on small entities unless the agency determines that a rule is not expected to have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. The corrections contained in this final rule will have little or no effect on the regulated industry. Based on the assessment in the regulatory evaluation, to the December 20, 2004 final rule, I hereby certify that, while this rule applies to a substantial number of small entities, there will not be a significant economic impact on those small entities. A detailed Regulatory Flexibility analysis is available for review in the docket.

This final rule has been developed in accordance with Executive Order 13272 (“Proper Consideration of Small Entities in Agency Rulemaking”) and DOT's procedures and policies to promote compliance with the Regulatory Flexibility Act to ensure that potential impacts of draft rules on small entities are properly considered.

F. Paperwork Reduction Act

This final rule imposes no new information collection requirements.

G. Regulatory 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 contained in the heading of this document can be used to cross-reference this action with the Unified Agenda.

H. Unfunded Mandates Reform Act

This final rule does not impose unfunded mandates under the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995. It does not result in costs of $120.7 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.

I. Environmental Assessment

The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) requires Federal agencies to consider the consequences of major Federal actions and prepare a detailed statement on actions significantly affecting the quality of the human environment. In the December 20, 2004 final rule, we developed an assessment to determine the effects of these revisions on the environment and whether a more comprehensive environmental impact statement may be required. Our findings conclude that there are no significant environmental impacts associated with this final rule. Consistency in the regulations for the transportation of hazardous materials aids in the shipper's understanding of what is required and permits shippers to more easily comply with safety regulations and avoid the potential for environmental damage or contamination. For interested parties, an environmental assessment is available in the public docket.

J. Privacy Act

Anyone is able to search the electronic form of any written communications and comments received into any of our dockets by the name of the individual submitting the document (or signing the document, if submitted on behalf of an association, business, labor union, etc.). You may review DOT's complete Privacy Act Statement in the Federal Register published on April 11, 2000 (Volume 65, Number 70; Pages 19477-78) or you may visit http://dms.dot.gov.
