Letter on PHMSA Lithium Battery Extension Request

The Retail Industry Leaders Association, the Food Marketing Institute, the National Retail Federation, and the Rechargeable Battery Association (collectively the “Associations”) will continue to support the work of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) in its efforts to enhance all aspects of safety involving the transportation of lithium batteries. However, we respectfully request the agency to grant an extension for compliance with the new transportation regulations regarding the transport of lithium batteries. The requested delay would help to ensure that the domestic retail sector meets the numerous compliance requirements set forth in the regulation.
