Formerly known as the NTTC Cargo Tank Hazardous Materials Regulations, this new tank-truck specific book offers greater content, accessibility, and utility to its readership thereby increasing the overall value for tank truck operators, NTTC said.
The compliance guide is a précis of the Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR) and contains only those sections of the code that apply specifically to tank-truck operations. The new and improved guide maintains its focus on federal hazardous materials and cargo tank regulations, but now it includes information applicable to all transport vehicles, including plain language explanations and the vehicle size and weights charts.
“The NTTC is extremely pleased to join forces with the professionals at J.J. Keller & Associates, Inc.,” said NTTC President Daniel R. Furth. “The combination of J. J. Keller’s subject matter expertise and the NTTC’s solid position as the home of the tank truckers offers both parties an excellent opportunity to improve the breadth of our respective offerings. Our leadership shares my belief that this collaboration will advance NTTC’s mission of safety by opening the door to new demographics within our industry and expanding the reach of the NTTC brand into the emerging energy services arena.”
The guide also contains the DOT specifications for all MC and DOT cargo tanks (both MC 300 series and DOT 400 series) and for all commodities classified by the DOT as hazardous materials; testing and retesting requirements; a list of products poisonous by inhalation; a list of the EPA hazardous substances with their reportable quantities; a list of the Marine Pollutants; and, addresses of all regional EPA and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration offices. The 2013 book also includes the General Overview for Completing the Hazardous Materials Incident Report – DOT Form F 5800.1.
