PHMSA Sets Final Rule on Reverse Logistics of Hazardous Materials to Distribution Centers

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is amending the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) by adopting regulatory amendments applicable to the safe reverse logistics shipment of certain hazardous materials from a retail outlet back to a distribution or reclamation facility by highway transportation. This final rule revises the HMR to include a definition of reverse logistics and provides appropriate provisions for hazardous materials within the scope of this definition.  This final rule also expands a previously existing exception for return shipments of used automobile batteries from multiple shippers on a single transport vehicle between a retail facility and a recycling center. The final rule will be posted soon in the Federal Register.
