FAST Act caused PHMSA to withdraw proposed flammable liquid transportation rule

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is set to withdraw a proposed rule related to the transportation of flammable liquid.

The new rule would have impacted the transportation of flammable liquid material in unprotected external product piping on Department of Transportation specification cargo tank motor vehicles.

The withdrawal comes after Congress passed the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. Despite the withdrawal of this specific rule proposal, the PHMSA stated it will continue to explore available avenues for improving the safety of transportation of flammable liquids by cargo tank motor vehicle.
