Here are a couple of quick updates and items of importance to be aware of as we wrap up 2020:
UCR and IFTA licence/decal renewals are due on January 1st, 2021.
If you have not already submitted your renewals, here is a link to our UCR application.
You will need to contact your state's IFTA office for renewal information; please reach out to our staff if you need the contact number for your state's office.
After December 31, 2020, hazmat shippers will no longer be able to use the ORM-D Consumer Commodity marking on packages containing limited quantities of low risk hazardous materials. Packages must be marked with the Limited Quantity marking in accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 49, Section 173.156.
PHMSA published a final rule in January 2011 that revised the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) to align with various international standards regarding hazard communication, hazard classification including packing group assignment, packaging authorization, air transport quantity limitations, and other harmonization-related topics. This final rule specified the phase-out of the marking for limited quantity materials reclassed as “other regulated material” (ORM-D).
For more information on the phase-out, visit https://www.phmsa.dot.gov/training/hazmat/ormd-phase-out.
As always, feel free to contact our team with any questions. Have a safe and happy holiday season!
