Hazmat Shipping Requirements Relaxed

Effective August 29, DOT relaxed the Hazmat shipping requirements for air bags and set belt pretensioners. The new federal rule now eliminates the need to obtain "EX” numbers on shipping papers accompanying air bag modules, inflators, and seat-belt pretensioners.  Additionally, special permits will no longer be required for bulk shipments of these devices, provided the packaging and shipping requirements in the regulations are met.

It does not modify the following mandates:

  • Dealerships must still properly package and mark air bag modules, inflators, and seat-belt pretensioners.
  • Dealership employees who receive, ship, and transport hazardous materials must be trained every three years on the DOT’s hazmat packaging, labeling, and shipping rules.

Please contact your KPA engineer with any questions or concerns.

Watch our Dealer Webinar to learn more about Hazmat shipping requirements.
