General Information
Action Summary Each year the U.S. Department of Transportation makes several changes to the federal rules regarding the transportation of hazardous materials in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Since Virginia regulations incorporate the federal regulations, with certain exceptions, it is only necessary to change one item to bring Virginia's regulations up-to-date with the federal changes. The item that must be amended is 9VAC20-110-110, which specifies the date of the federal regulations that are incorporated into Virginia regulations. For the ease of use by the regulated community, this date is always October 1; however, the text is amended to change the year, thus incorporating federal changes from October 1 of the previously incorporated year through September 30 of the newly specified year. This amendment covers one year, October 1, 2010 through September 30, 2011, and there are ten (10) changes. A table is attached that provides a summary and more information on these changes.
