Auburn, WA 98092

Dear Ms. Welk:

This is in response to your July 17, 2006 letter regarding training certification requirements under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180). Specifically, you ask whether an instructor or consultant must be "certified" under the HMR.

The answer is no. There are no provisions or procedures under the training requirements in Subpart H of Part 172 for review and approval of training programs or certification of instructors.

I hope this information is helpful.
