The agency has released its new “OCFR,” which is a new web-based application that will (according to the agency) make relating to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) easier for DG professionals by tying together search and link functions in order to make researching particular rulemakings and interpretations easier and more user friendly. See a document that helps explain the new system and how to interact with it here.


The agency published an interesting study on the impact of state of charge (SOC) on lithium battery safety during transport. As you might guess, the study finds that increased state of charge can lead to more active events when problems occur. However, there is a great deal of other more technical information and given that lithium batteries are now such a huge part of the DG Equation for all of us, many people might be interested in a more in-depth look at the findings. See them here.
