Hazardous Materials

WASHINGTON (CN) - Railroad operators must keep chain of custody records when certain amounts and types of explosive, poisonous by inhalation or radioactive material are transported, according to a Transportation Security Administration regulation effective Dec. 26.

The operators also must use security procedures to ensure cargo is where it is supposed to be, and choose a security coordinator who can quickly track hazardous cargo, receive intelligence information, and deal with train security matters at any time.
