I found this and thought that it might make the transport of APCP motors a little easier.

COMMON AND CONTRACT CARRIERS NO LONGER HAVE TO COMPLETE AN EXPLOSIVES DELIVERY RECORD FORM
Department of Justice Issues Interim Rule Amending Regulations


WASHINGTON -- The Department of Justice issued an interim rule today removing the requirement that common or contract carriers taking possession of explosive materials for delivery to a licensee or permittee complete ATF Form 5400.8 (Explosives Delivery Record) prior to taking possession of explosive materials.

The interim rule amends current regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) that required common or contract carriers to complete the form. ATF believes that this requirement is unduly burdensome and unnecessary. Furthermore, ATF does not believe that the elimination of this form will result in diversion of explosive materials to criminal or terrorist use.

ATF will continue to require distributors of explosive materials to verify the identity of people accepting possession of explosive materials for common or contract carriers, and will require distributors to record the name of the common or contract carrier and the full name of the driver in their permanent records.

Comments on the interim rule will be accepted until October 14, 2003. The interim rule will remain in effect until superseded by final regulations.
