FMCSA issues cargo tank safety advisory

by Truck News

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The US Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has issued an advisory that DOT407 and DOT412 cargo tanks manufactured by Keith Huber Inc. are not compliant.

The tanks, manufactured before May 1, 2013, don’t meet Federal Hazardous Materials Regulations. The manufacturer is no longer in business and ceased manufacturing tanks around that time.

The FMCSA notes Keith Huber Inc. is a distinct entity from Keith Huber Corp., whose tanks are not subject to the safety advsiroy.

“Continued use of the Keith Huber Incorporated DOT407 and DOT412 cargo tanks in specification hazardous materials service is prohibited; owners and operators are subject to immediate enforcement and civil penalties,” the FMCSA warns.
