National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) has released the 2017 Cargo Tank Test & Inspection Workshops schedule in partnership with the US Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). These co-sponsored workshops are designed to help cargo tank repair technicians, testers and inspectors comply with the regulations--whether as a bulk motor carrier or for a commercial tank repair facility.
Cargo Tank Workshops for 2017 will be held:
• July 11-12, 2017: Omaha NE
• August 8-9, 2017: Portland ME
• September 19-20, 2017: Salt Lake City UT
• October 11-12, 2017: New Orleans LA--in conjunction with Tank Truck Week at the Ernest N Morial Convention Center
The workshops are conducted by experienced US DOT/FMCSA field agents who are active in hazardous material and cargo tank training and enforcement--with special training in the details of cargo tank regulatory requirements. They use their experience in conducting facility audits to introduce "real world" issues into the workshops.
Each workshop focuses on compliance with the U.S. DOT’s cargo tank qualification and maintenance regulations found in 49 CFR Parts 107 and 180 and provides analysis of the complex series of federal regulations so carriers and repair facilities may achieve full compliance. Information will be presented covering all MC- and DOT-series cargo tanks.
