The US government estimates that some 800,000 hazmat shipments are made daily, with 40,000 of those being moved by air. Finding sources to assist with regulatory compliance is easier said than done and a new hazardous materials referencing website has been created for shippers of dangerous goods in the US. Hazmatlaw is a public service of the Cramer Law Group, a Washington, DC based law firm specializing in hazardous material and dangerous goods transportation. This website is not a substitute for the regulations issued by the U.S. Department of transportation, regulations from other countries, the various international dangerous goods transportation standards, or requisite hazmat employee training but the site has a dedicated section for regulatory developments, classification and packaging group information as well as notification of regulatory exemptions and government enforcement procedures. Check out the website at: www.hazmatlaw.com.
