The US Department of Transportation (US DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) recently launched their updated website, www.phmsa.dot.gov. And more recently, under the Regulations and Compliance section of the website, PHMSA added a search feature to the Interpretations page, allowing users to filter Hazmat vs. Pipeline Interpretations and sort by key word, topic, or date range. This search feature is located on the left-hand side of the webpage (see image below). Site visitors can now monitor the Hazmat interpretations, and use the new PHMSA Interpretation search for archived letters.

The site offers navigation tabs organized by About PHMSA, Safety, Regulations and Compliance, and Resources. Recourse highlights include Data and Statistics, including HazMat Incident Statistics. Also highlighted are a number of videos emphasizing current HazMat safety Issues.
