Hazardous Materials: Reverse Logistics (RRR) An Extension to the Comment Period – Announced by the PHMSA in the September 2014 Federal Register

Announcements from regulatory agencies of the US Government in the Federal Register can have a profound impact on your business.  Therefore it’s important for you to continuously monitor Federal Register publications for announcements applicable to your operations.  I can help you to do this.

Sometimes an announcement in the Federal Register calls for a more thorough explanation than just what is conveyed by the headline.  That is the point of this article.  Here I will briefly summarize, and provide access to more information, on a specific Federal Register announcement:  Hazardous Materials:  Reverse Logistics (RRR).

What agency is making the announcement?

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), one of many administrations within the US Department of Transportation.
