Hazardous Materials Commodity Flow Study

Under IAA with the US Census Bureau, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) will receive high-quality data on hazardous materials packaging and number of shipments. This data will give context to the hazardous materials incidents data that is currently collected, assist PHMSA in identifying and eliminating burdensome regulations, and provide PHMSA the ability to quickly and precisely calculate the changing risks presented by hazardous materials in transportation.
