Dear Mr. Romach:

This is in response to your letter dated June 25, 2001, requesting clarification on registration requirements under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171­180). Specifically, you ask whether a shipper is required to register if the transporter decides to placard a shipment that does not require a placard (e.g., a Class 9 shipment).

The answer is no. A domestic shipment Class 9 material in non-bulk packagings does not require a Class 9 placard (see § 172.504(f)(9)). Thus the shipper is not required to register.

I hope this satisfies your request.
