June 25, 2014: Comments Requested on Provisions for Insulation of Packages Containing Dry Ice

On June 25, 2014 PHMSA submitted a paper entitled Provisions for Insulation of Packages Containing Dry Ice to the Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods and the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The paper, which was based on research that was conducted by the Transportation Research Board, suggested that fiberboard packaging that contains dry ice should be insulated in order to reduce the production of carbon dioxide from the packaging. The DGAC is requesting comments from members on this paper and is expected to provide PHMSA some the comments they receive. If you are interested in submitting a comment please do so no later than July 18, 2014. Submit your comments to the attention of Del Billings in the DGAC Members Only Section.
