Important Notice Regarding Anhydrous Ammonia and Liquefied Petroleum Gas Hoses

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is aware of hazardous materials (HM) incidents involving Anhydrous Ammonia (NH3) and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) occurring during the transfer of these materials from cargo tanks to storage tanks, and vice-versa. To reduce the likelihood of incidents resulting from use of hoses that are incompatible with the material, the motor carrier or facility should conduct a careful inspection prior to beginning the loading or unloading process.
