The transporter must maintain compliance with DES Administrative Rule Env-Hw 600 concerning such issues as proper vehicle identification, personnel training, contingency planning, emergency preparedness, financial responsibility, manifest management, and record keeping and reporting. A distinction should be made between the transportation of hazardous "wastes" (i.e., contaminated solids, liquids, and gases), which are regulated by DES, and hazardous "materials" (i.e., virgin chemical products or reagents intended for use in product manufacturing), which are regulated by the NH Department of Safety. Information on transporting hazardous materials can be found at www.nh.gov/safety/ or by calling (603) 271-0333.
