Dear Mr. Patko:

This is in response to your August 25, 2000 letter concerning the acceptability of hinged hazard warning labels for use on packages under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR Parts 171-180).  In a subsequent letter, you submitted a sample, flip-type hinged RADIOACTIVE label for our review.

It is our opinion that the sample label meets the minimum requirements prescribed in §172.407 and is acceptable for use on packages of hazardous materials.  Thank you for allowing us to keep sample label for our files.

Please contact us if we can be of further assistance.


Edward T. Mazzullo
Director, Office of Hazardous Materials
