Hazardous Materials: Revisions to Incident Reporting Requirements and the Hazardous Materials Incident Report Form

Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).
RSPA is proposing revisions to the current incident reporting requirements of the Hazardous Materials Regulations and the hazardous materials incident report form, DOT Form F 5800.1. The major changes proposed by RSPA in this NPRM include: collecting more specific information on the incident reporting form; expanding reporting exceptions; expanding reporting requirements to persons other than carriers; reporting undeclared shipments of hazardous materials; notifying shippers of incidents; and reporting non-release incidents involving bulk packages. The revisions are intended to increase the usefulness of data collected for risk analysis and management by government and industry and, where possible, provide relief from regulatory requirements.
