Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Maryland incorporates by reference the federal hazardous materials regulations. Maryland statutes (Md. Code Ann., Envir. 7-101 to 7-114) contain requirements for the permitting of hazardous materials transfer stations that must be implemented by regulations developed by MDE. MDE has yet to develop the necessary regulations. So, in effect, the requirements are not being enforced.

Maryland has requirements related to the transportation of oil and petroleum products.

Administration and enforcement. MDE enforces the regulations for oil transporters. Commercial drivers who wish to apply for, renew, or transfer a Hazardous Materials Endorsement (HME) should contact MVA. For more information about HMEs, see the national section HAZARDOUS MATERIALS TRANSPORTERS.
