The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is seeking hazardous material carriers and shippers willing to participate in a paperless hazard communication system pilot program. The pilot project is designed to evaluate the feasibility of using electronic systems to convey key hazard communication information that is currently featured on paper shipping documents, including the U.N. number, proper shipping name, and hazard class of the hazardous material. PHMSA is seeking volunteers and comments on the information that will be collected. Information on how to participate and submit comments can be found here. Comments can be filed hereunder Docket ID No. PHMSA-2013-0124. PHMSA will accept volunteers and comments through Sept. 17.
