PHMSA Final Rule Revises Fireworks Regs

Posted in on Mon, Aug 12, 2013

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has revised its Hazardous Materials Regulations applicable to the approval of Division 1.4G consumer fireworks (UN0336 Fireworks) and establishing DOT-approved fireworks certification agencies that provide an alternative to the approval process for Division 1.4G consumer fireworks. PHMSA is also reformatting the procedural regulations pertaining to certification agencies.  These actions clarify regulations with respect to PHMSA’s fireworks approval process and provide regulatory flexibility in seeking authorization for the transportation of Division 1.4G consumer fireworks.  The effective date is August 15, 2013.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2013-07-16/html/2013-16986.htm
