Mexican NOMS (Includes Differences in 49 CFR) Training

 

MEMBER RATE = $370

NON-MEMBER RATE = $395

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This course will help navigate the ground transport regulations of hazardous materials and waste, as regulated by SCT (Secretary of Communication and Transportation) in Mexico and review the requirements for Mexican NOMS (Official Mexican Standard). The course will also address training requirements from SCT and STPS (Secretary of Labor and Social Security).

All states within Mexico have adopted the NOMS as the regulations for transportation across Mexico. Therefore, these regulations are enforced not only by federal authorities but also by state authorities. If your organization ships hazardous materials between the US and Mexico, this course will help you understand the nuances of compliance with both sets of regulations (Mexican NOMs and 49 CFR) and help keep you in compliance.

This course will include updates of several NOMS made during 2020.

This course will include the differences between the Mexican NOMs and 49 CFR regulations.

The course is taught using a combination of lectures, visual aids, exercises, and question and answer opportunities. Upon successful completion of the course and after passing an exam, students will receive a training certificate.

Prerequisite: General & Security Awareness Training, Familiarity with 49 CFR

Course Materials: A comprehensive compliance reference and exercise book will be provided. Students will also want to access the online e-CFR here
