ASME Section XII Transport Tank Code will have an impact on the regulations related to the construction and continued service of highway cargo tanks used in the transportation of dangerous goods. Modal Appendix 1 of this code specifically addresses these transport tanks, and is intended to replace a large portion of the DOT regulations currently governing how they are built and serviced. This paper presents a preview of Modal Appendix 1, one of the mandatory appendices related to cargo tanks, and how these changes will affect manufacturers and repair shops.
