PHMSA Publishes 2021 Public Meeting Schedule for International Standards


The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) published its schedule for four public meetings held in advance of international meetings. 

The first meeting will be held in preparation for the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Dangerous Goods Panel (DGP) Working Group 21 (WG/21) virtual meeting scheduled for May 24– 28, 2021. 

The second meeting will be held in preparation for the 58th session of the United Nations Sub-Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (UNSCOE TDG) scheduled for June 28 to July 2, 2021, in Geneva, Switzerland. 

The third meeting will be held in preparation for the ICAO DGP 28 Meeting (DGP/28) scheduled for September 27 to October 1, 2021. The fourth meeting will be held in preparation for the 59th session of the UNSCOE TDG scheduled for November 29 to December 8, 2021.

During the public meetings, PHMSA reviews the agenda and papers submitted for consideration at each of the international meetings.  Papers for the UNSCOE meeting can be found here under Meetings and Documents.  Papers for the ICAP DGP can be found here closer to the meeting date. 

All meetings will be held virtually unless COVID-19 restrictions change.  A meeting notice, with instructions for participation, will be published in the Federal Register about 2 weeks before each meeting.
