Construction of Cargo Tank Motor Vehicles; Confirmation of 
Effective Date

AGENCY: Research and Special Programs Administration (RSPA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice; confirmation of effective date.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On January 12, 1994, RSPA published a final rule to extend the 
compliance date for the continued construction of cargo tank motor 
vehicles to the MC 306, MC 307, MC 312, MC 331, and MC 338 
specifications. The effective date of the rule was March 14, 1994, 
contingent upon RSPA receiving no comments opposing the extension by 
February 11, 1994. This document confirms that RSPA received no 
opposing comments and, therefore, the effective date of the final rule 
is March 14, 1994.

EFFECTIVE DATE: March 14, 1994.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jennifer Karim, (202) 366-4488, Office

Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation, Washington, DC

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 12, 1994, RSPA published a final 
rule to extend the compliance date for the continued construction of 
cargo tank motor vehicles to the MC 306, MC 307, MC 312, MC 331, and MC 
338 specifications from April 21, 1994 to August 31, 1995 (Docket HM-
183, Amdt. Nos. 173-212 and 180-2, 59 FR 1784). The January 12 rule was 
in response to comments received from several cargo tank manufacturers 
requesting an extension to allow them additional time to implement 
engineering procedures and design modifications required for 
manufacture of cargo tank motor vehicles to the new DOT 406, DOT 407 
and DOT 412 specifications and to the revised MC 331 and MC 338 
specifications. RSPA stated in the final rule that the effective date 
would be March 14, 1994, unless by February 11, 1994, RSPA received 
comments that illustrated extension of the compliance date would not be 
in the public interest. RSPA received three comments to the final rule; 
all comments were in support of the extension. Therefore, this document 
confirms that the effective date of the January 12 final rule is March 
14, 1994.

    Issued in Washington, DC on March 14, 1994, under authority 
delegated in 49 CFR part 106, appendix A.
