The agency has posted a link to a webinar it produced that summarizes what it views as notable changes to the 49 CFR under the new HM-215P international harmonization. It’s always good to get a feel for what the agency itself views as imperative, so although most of us have already digested the HM-215P, it’s well worth a look to get the “inside track.” Here’s a link to the free webinar, viewable on YouTube.
The agency is also seeking stakeholder feedback on its development plans for the upcoming 2024 edition of the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG). You may find the ERG here > https://www.phmsa.dot.gov/training/hazmat/erg/emergency-response-guidebook-erg
The ERG is a very popular “one-stop shop” for many first responders when they interact with dangerous goods, so if you have what you think is useful feedback for the DOT to help improve the next edition, they want to hear from you. Send comments to this email address: [email protected]
The agency listed no formal deadline for comments, but noted that reviews will begin “in early 2023.”
