Title:PROPOSAL OF ADDITIONAL SAFETY REGULATIONS CONCERNING THE TRANSPORT OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS
RCRA Online Number:14744
Date:01/10/2005
To:Rosenker
From:Hale
Organization of Recipient:National Transportation Safety Board
Description: DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMRs) define the requirements that generally apply to hazardous waste transportation. RCRA waste transportation regulations reference the applicable HMR requirements to maintain consistency and avoid duplication of effort by the two agencies. EPA could only exercise jurisdiction over the unloading of hazardous wastes and not over the products or non-hazardous wastes which might exhibit the same properties and risks during their heating and unloading. EPA would want to discuss with DOT the possibility of reinstating its previous policy on railroad tank car unloading or other possible approaches before EPA would consider undertaking a regulation.
