The Bureau of Explosives (BOE) of the Association of American Railroads has been a unique organization dedicated to helping carriers, shippers, and container manufacturers continually improve hazardous materials transportation safety. Formed in 1907 by the railroad industry to serve as a self-policing agency to advance the safe transportation of explosives and other dangerous articles, the BOE using this publication actually developed the first hazmat safety rules, which were later adopted and expanded upon by the Interstate Commerce Commission and later the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) into what are now the regulations that dictate all hazardous materials transportation. Today's BOE continues to provide valuable services and products throughout North America that promote compliance with federal hazmat regulations and industry safety standards. Our BOE Tariff—6000 publication continues to be the leader in the industry for its accuracy, timeliness, added content and regulatory verification.
