October 1st DOT Hazardous Materials Requirements

Starting Oct. 1, the US Department of Transprotation (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) will require some additional information on shipping forms for all dangerous goods and hazardous materials. This includes: 

• An Emergency Response Information provider (ERI), that provides 24-hour coverage in case of an emergency.
• An Emergency Response Phone Number, with country and area code, in (at least) one place on the shipping form.

When and if an agency or organization is designated as the ERI provider, they will be identified on the shipping papers by name, contract number or some other unique identifier.

Let us help all of your hazardous transportation needs with TDG flip placards, TDG labels, TDG training and compliance materials, DOT placards, DOT shipping labels, placard charts and more.
