Temporary Reduction of HazMat Registration Fees

Posted in on Tue, May 21, 2013

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has published a final rule to meet its responsibilities under the federal hazardous materials transportation law that requires DOT to adjust the amount of the annual registration fee to account for any unexpended balance in the Hazardous Materials Emergency Preparedness (HMEP) Fund.  Due to an unexpended balance that has accumulated in the Fund, PHMSA is lowering the registration fees for registration year 2013-2014 for all persons, as defined in PHMSA regs, that transport or offer for transportation in commerce certain categories and quantities of hazardous materials.  Specifically, for registration year 2013-2014 the fee for a small business or not-for-profit organization is revised to be $125 (plus a $25 processing fee), and for all other businesses the fee is $1300 (plus a $25 processing fee). After the 2013-2014 registration year, the registration fees will return to 2012-2013 registration year levels.  Editorial changes are also being made.  The effective date is April 19, 2013.
