Extension for a Section of Rail Security Rule

TSA published in today’s Federal Register an extension of the effective date for 49 CFR 1580.107 from December 26th, 2008 until April 1st, 2009. The announcement said that this was done to allow “affected freight railroad carriers, rail hazardous materials shippers, and rail hazardous materials receivers additional time to conduct training and implement procedures to come into compliance with the chain of custody and control requirements of the rule”. The effective date for the remainder of the rule remains as December 26th, 2008. More details will follow in a later blog.
