    LC Card Number 86-600542;

    NTIS order #PB87-100319

    This report discusses transportation of all hazardous materials (commodities,

    radioactive materials including spent nuclear fuel, and hazardous wastes) that

    travel by truck, rail, water, or air. The Office of Technology Assessment (OTA)

    has identified four paramount policy issue areas for Congressional

    consideration: training, federal/state regulations, public information, and

    containers. Each of these areas is discussed in the following four chapters:

    data and information systems for hazardous materials; containers for hazardous

    materials transportation; hazardous materials transportation regulation; and

    training for hazardous materials transportation enforcement and emergency

    response. The basis for many programs to address these issues already exists,

    but lack of communication and integration between and among different levels of

    government diminishes their effectiveness. Appendices provide further

    information on the following: hazardous waste regulations; U.S. Department of

    Transportation inconsistency rulings; emergency response planning; and acronyms

    and other references. Report includes a comprehensive assessment of the

    regulations, information systems, container safety and training for emergency

    response and enforcement for consideration by Congress as it deliberates on

    reauthorization of the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act. The link in
