The Office of Hazardous Materials Safety (OHMS) of PHMSA notified us that HAZMATICS (the Hazardous Materials Incident Communication System) is temporarily offline due to technical difficulties that prevented PHMSA from maintaining the integrity of the information. HAZMATICS serves as the online system for Form 5800 incident reporting as required by 49 C.F.R. 171.16 Detailed hazardous materials incident reports. The search tools of the system are also temporarily disabled. PHMSA enforcement is aware of the offline status of HAZMATICS, and is taking that into consideration when reviewing Form 5800 submissions.
Please find below helpful information.
