Temporary Change to Hand Sanitizer Transportation Restrictions

In support of the critical need to move hazardous materials during the COVID-19 public health emergency, on April 2, 2020, PHMSA issued a temporary relief notice for companies shipping hand sanitizers used for sanitation purposes. To provide additional clarification and guidance, PHMSA issued a revised Hand Sanitizer Notice of Enforcement Discretion on April 10, 2020.  The revised notice provides the option to use labels that conform to FDA guidance (as a replacement for the DOT text markings required by the guidance), provided the FDA labels are visible in transportation.  The revised notice also clarifies that registration with PHMSA is waived irrespective of the quantity of hand sanitizer transported.
