The United States Federal Highway Administration implemented the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations; General; Intermodal Transportation Regulation on 11 April 1997.

This Regulation, part of the Intermodal Safe Container Transportation Act, passed into Federal Law on 29 December 1994 and was subsequently amended by the 104th Congress.
