Mr. Stephen C. Fulton                      Ref. No. 01-0072
Container Service Co.
P.O. Box 1115
Warrenton, OR 97146-1115

Dear Mr. Fulton:

This is in response your March 8, 2001 letter, regarding the applicability of the 24-hour emergency response phone number to Carbon dioxide, solid (Dry ice) under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180).

Section 172.604 requires offerors of hazardous materials to include on a shipping paper a 24-hour emergency response phone number for use in the event of an emergency involving the hazardous material. However, certain hazardous materials are not required to have an emergency response phone number
(§ 172.604(c)}. A material properly described under the
shipping name “Carbon dioxide, solid or Dry ice" is specifically excluded from the emergency response phone number requirement (§ 172.604(c) (2).

I hope this satisfies your request.
