Dear Mr. Galang:

This is in response to your June 25, 2001 letter asking if the emergency response phone number for export shipments must be monitored for the time the material is in transportation, including lay-overs in foreign countries.  Additionally, you ask if the emergency response phone number must be monitored for vessel shipments originating in the U.S. but outside of the 12-mile international border.

The answer to both questions is yes.  A U.S. shipper must monitor the emergency response phone
number the entire time a shipment is in transportation (until it reaches its destination as designated on the shipping paper) in accordance with 172.604. This requirement applies to both air and vessel

I hope this satisfies your request.
