In accordance with the procedures governing the application for, and the processing of, special permits from the Department of Transportation's Hazardous Material Regulations (49 CFR Part 107, Subpart B), notice is hereby given that the Office of Hazardous Materials Safety has received the applications described herein.

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