What is the CFR?

CFR refers to the Code of Federal Regulations, which is the codification of the regulations published in the Federal Register by the Executive Departments and Agencies of the Federal Government of the United States. The CFR is divided into 50 Titles that represent broad areas subject to Federal Regulation. Title 49 of the CFR is the Department of Transportation regulations that include hazardous materials transportation regulations and federal motor carrier regulations.

If you handle hazardous materials or hazardous waste, or if you are a shipper, carrier or freight forwarder, the 49 CFR is a must. These regulations cover requirements for markings, labels, placards, shipping papers, training, emergency response and performance-oriented packaging standards. Domestic transportation regulations for highway, rail, air and water are included.
