Two New Railroad Hazmat Security Rules

There were two new railroad security related postings in today’s Federal Register. Both dealt with the shipment of hazardous chemicals. The first is a notice of proposed rule making (NPRM) concerning appeal procedures for adverse rulings by the Federal Railroad Administration about the adequacy of proposed shipping routes for certain hazardous materials. The second is an interim final rule about the shipment of hazardous materials by rail, fulfilling the requirements of Section 1551 of the Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007.

Both of these documents are rather extensive and I have not yet had a chance to review them in detail. These are apparently the two security related rules note by Fmillar1 in a response to my earlier blog (see: "Response to Comment on 4-1-08 Blog") I am sure that I will be discussing them in future blogs.
