The Environmental Protection Agency.

The Environmental Protection Agency issued its final rule establishing the reportable quantity (RQ) for MDI at 5,000 pounds. EPA's publication of this rule will trigger action by the Department of Transportation (DOT), which must, under Section 306(a) of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, regulate all materials EPA classifies as hazardous substances. Once DOT issues its final rule concerning MDI, all shipments of MDI that are in one package in a quantity equal to or greater than the RQ will be required to be shipped as a hazardous materials.
