This Equivalency Certificate authorizes the one-way transportation by road vehicle or by ship on a domestic voyage of cylinders that were manufactured after January 1, 1993 in accordance with a specification for cylinders set out in US DOT 49 CFR. DOT cylinders manufactured after January 1, 1993 are sometimes returned by consumers at propane refill centers, municipal waste disposal sites or cylinder exchange sites. Presently, the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations do not allow propane retailers to transport those cylinders back to their facility for disposal, recycling or other reclamation.
