Anyone intending to transport a hazardous material — as defined within 49 CFR 172.504 (Table 1) — by motor vehicle on a highway or vehicular way and/or area must notify the nearest office of the Alaska DOT Measurement Standards and Commercial Vehicle Compliance (MS/CVC) Permits Section of the intent to transport the material at least 24 prior to the transportation of the material.
The notice must identify the exact date, approximate time, exact transportation route, hazard class and quantity of the material, and the telephone number of the person responsible for the transportation of the material. The materials must be transported on the date and by the route identified in the notice. Permission to transport the materials must be obtained from the MS/CVC Permits Section before transporting the material. The DOT may deny permission to transport the materials or require the material to be transported on an alternate date or by an alternative route.
The transporter must immediately contact the MS/CVC Permits Section if at any time it is suspected the shipment is lost, stolen, or otherwise unaccounted for.
