EMA Compliance Bulletin: U.S. DOT Annual Hazmat Registration Period Opens May 1
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA) online portal for annual HAZMAT registration opens May 1, 2022.
Registration renewals must be completed by July 1, 2022. Due to COVID-19 workplace restrictions and processing delays, marketers should register online this year and do so early.
However, registrations submitted before May 1, 2022 will not be processed until the open season begins.
PHMSA requires both hazardous material transporters and those who ship hazardous materials through common carriers to register and pay a fee each year in return for a certificate of authority to operate in intrastate and/or interstate commerce.
Since PHMSA allows multi-year registration, not all registration certificates are up for renewal by July 1, 2022.
Marketers should look at their registration certificate for the date of renewal or search registration status at PHMSA’s online portal at registration look-up to determine whether registration is due for renewal.
