Hazardous Materials: Infectious Substances; Harmonization With the United Nations Recommendations
Notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM).
PHMSA is proposing to revise the transportation requirements for infectious substances, including regulated medical waste, to adopt new classification criteria and packaging requirements consistent with revised international standards and to clarify existing requirements to promote compliance. These proposed revisions will ensure an acceptable level of safety for the transportation of infectious substances and facilitate domestic and international transportation.
