Routing as a Federal Issue
The approaches by various states and localities
are fundamentally at odds with the flexible
approach deliberately adopted by the Federal
regulatory agencies and would seriously disrupt
the flow of hazardous materials that are vital to
the public health, the national economy, and
national security.

Current Requirements
HMR does not contain specific requirements for
routing but rather encompasses it as a mitigating
measure. 49 CFR 174.14 Forwarding
Provisions 49 CFR 172.102 Special Provision B61
Handling 49 CFR 173.314(g)(1) Time Sensitive

Routing as a Part of the Transportation Cycle
Routing decisions are continually made as a part
of the transportation cycle for a variety of
reasons.

Future Activities

    that clarify and enhance the existing rules.
  • Balance three sides of the transportation cycle
    equation
  • Improve uniformity of analysis
  • Provide increased Federal input and oversight
  • Improve awareness control of shipments
