Regulatory Update: FMCSA proposes rule to clarify that vehicles carrying IBCs are included in tank vehicle definition

Last week, the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration published a proposed rule to clarify the new definition of tank vehicle and which drivers must have tank endorsements. In a May 2011 final rule, FMCSA revised the definition of "tank vehicle" to include vehicles carrying intermediate bulk containers with individual capacities of 119 gallons or more and an aggregate capacity of 1000 gallons or more. Under this revised definition, a driver transporting such IBCs must obtain a tank vehicle endorsement on his/her commercial driver's license. Industry, including NACD, raised concerns about this new definition and requirement and asked FMCSA to revisit the new tank vehicle definition to exclude vehicles that are not actually tanks. more
