The HM 232 requires that offerors of "Certain Dangerous Goods" [as defined by DOT] will ensure security plans are made for each modal transport. "K" Line does not carry most of those defined. For the commodities that meet the definition, we have established specific security and safety plans. "K" Line has also communicated the DOT requirements to our vendors for their compliance as well.
The HM 232 also requires a new componenet to the HAZMAT General Awareness Training requirement. The new component is for HAZMAT General Security Awareness. "K" Line America has a training program in place and our employees have been trained and certified in accordance with the new regulation.
