SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On October 7, 2005, the FAA published a final rule, “Hazardous Materials Training Requirements” (70 FR 58796; Oct. 7, 2005). The rule added appendix O to part 121 to prescribe the requirements for hazardous materials training under part 121, subpart Z, and part 135, subpart K. The appendix contains two tables (one for will-carry certificate holders, and the other for will-not-carry certificate holders) showing various categories of persons, defined by job function or responsibility, and the specified category they must receive. In both tables, in the entry for “Provisions for passengers and crew,” there should not have been an “X” in the column for “Shippers.”

In addition, the rule added § 145.206 Notification of hazardous materials authorizations. As explained in the preamble of that rule, sections proposed as §§ 121.801 through 121.804 (subpart Z) were renumbered as §§ 121.1001 through 121.1007 in the final rule because other rules had been added to part 121 since the NPRM was published. Section 145.206 (a) contained a cross reference that was not correctly updated. This document corrects that error.

Note 1.—Depending on the responsibilities of the person, the aspects of training to be covered may vary from those shown in the table.
Note 2.—When a person offers a consignment of hazmat, including COMAT, for or on behalf of the certificate holder, then the person must be trained in the certificate holder's training program and comply with shipper responsibilities and training. If offering goods on another certificate holder's equipment, the person must be trained in compliance with the training requirements in 49 CFR. All shippers of hazmat must be trained under 49 CFR. The shipper functions in 49 CFR mirror the training aspects that must be covered for any shipper offering hazmat for transport.
Note 3.—When an operator, its subsidiary, or an agent of the operator is undertaking the responsibilities of acceptance staff, such as the passenger handling staff accepting small parcel cargo, the certificate holder, its subsidy, or the agent must be trained in the certificate holder's training program and comply with the acceptance staff training requirements.

Note 2—When a person offers a consignment of hazmat, including COMAT, for air transport for or on behalf of the certificate holder, then that person must be properly trained. All shippers of hazmat must be trained under 49 CFR. The shipper functions in 49 CFR mirror the training aspects that must be covered for any shipper, including a will-not-carry certificate holder offering dangerous goods for transport, with the exception of recognition training. Recognition training is a separate FAA requirement in the certificate holder's training program.
Note 3—When an operator, its subsidiary, or an agent of the operator is undertaking the responsibilities of acceptance staff, such as the passenger handling staff accepting small parcel cargo, the certificate holder, its subsidiary, or the agent must be trained in the certificate holder's training program and comply with the acceptance staff training requirements.
