FMCSA Issues Safety Advisory for Re-inspection of Certain Cargo Tank Vehicles

The tanks in question were tested by H&W Tank Testing and Christopher Humphries.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has issued a safety advisory to provide notice to owners and operators of cargo tanks that have been improperly inspected and tested and must be re-inspected and retested before being used in hazardous materials specification tank service.

The tanks were initially tested by H&W Tank Testing in Ohatchee, Ala., and Christopher Humphries in Jacksonville, Ala.

Tanks that have been inspected and/or tested by either company from April 2011 through March 2016 must be re-inspected and/or retested immediately by a cargo tank facility registered with FMCSA; it is a violation of the Federal Hazardous Materials Regulations to use these cargo tank motor vehicles for transportation of hazardous materials before they have been properly re-inspected and retested by an FMCSA-registered cargo tank facility.

Owners and operators must immediately provide FMCSA with documentation that the required inspections and testing have been performed for all of the affected cargo tank motor vehicles.
