Key Features of The Journal of HazMat Transportation™
The Journal of HazMatTransportation™ provides you with in-depth technical reports and advice on DOT hazardous materials dockets, and UN, IMO and ICAO dangerous goods changes.
The Journal of HazMatTransportation™ regularly attends meetings of the UN Committee of Experts which are the source of 99% of DOT's rule changes, the International Maritime Organization, the International Civil Aviation Organization, and the working groups of the ADR/RID (the European road and rail rules). New dangerous goods rules are covered in a way to prepare you for changes to domestic rules which are forthcoming. This knowledge leads to serious cost savings. The Journal of HazMatTransportation™ is the only information source available to provide guidance for all of the modes, given the active participation of its authors in U.S. and international regulatory decisions and actions.
For easy tracking, all DOT hazmat rulemaking and notice activity is presented in each issue in an easy-to-read table. Avoid costly surprises by visiting DOT inspectors in your plants discovering what you should have already known. The journal keys in on what DOT is looking for by providing PHMSA enforcement quick-briefs sorted by company type and civil penalty actions, in addition to summaries of FAA enforcement actions.
Read verbatim in each issue, all of DOT's HazMat Letters of Interpretation (Clarification) for each previous two-month period, sorted and indexed to the CFR regulation text. These letters are studied for importance and unique expert comments on letters are presented in each issue.
