PHMSA HazMat Final Rule on Packages Intended for Transport by Aircraft

Posted in on Thu, May 31, 2012

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is amending the Hazardous Materials Regulations to require closures of inner packagings containing liquids within a combination packaging intended for transportation by aircraft to be secured by a secondary means or, where a secondary closure cannot be applied or it is impracticable to apply, permit the use of a leakproof liner. These amendments are consistent with the 2011-2012 edition of the International Civil Aviation Organization Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (ICAO Technical Instructions).  This rule is effective July 1, 2012.  http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-04-16/html/2012-8978.htm
