PHMSA Amends its Rules: Shippers and Carriers of HazMat may not Operate Until all Civil Penalties are Paid

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:  Falure to Pay Civil Penalties.

What agency is making the announcement?

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