Disclosure, Enforcement and Compliance: A Shipper’s Perspective on Compliance

  • Don A. Boyd

Abstract

Recent legislation and rulemakings have made radical changes in the transportation of hazardous materials. The Hazardous Materials Transportation Uniform Safety Act of 1990 (HMTUSA), the Sanitary Food Transportation Act of 1990 (SFTA), DOT Docket HM-181 (Performance-Oriented Packaging Standards [POP]) and Docket HM-126C (Emergency Response Communication) make the shipping and handling of hazardous materials more complex and detailed than ever before. Many of the ground rules that were in effect in the past have been amended or changed. If persons involved in the transportation of hazardous materials want to continue to be involved, they must become familiar with and comply with the new laws and rules. If they fail to do so, they will face great risks and difficulties and may even be prohibited from engaging in such transport.
