On May 14, 2010, the Department of Transportation issued a notice of proposed rulemaking that would impose new packaging requirements on the transport of liquids by air. Packing Group I liquids would require a secondary means of closure, absorbent materials and a rigid, leakproof liner or intermediate packaging. Packing Groups II and III liquids would be able to satisfy the secondary closure requirements through use of a leakproof liner if it can be demonstrated that a secondary closure cannot be applied or is impracticable. Comments on the notice must be submitted by July 13, 2010.
