Dear Mr. Ngai:
This is in response to your letter dated June 29, 2001, requesting clarification of labeling requirements under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180). Specifically, you ask if the empty label required under § 173.428 for an empty radioactive material package may be used for a cleaned and purged packaging that formerly contained a nonradioactive hazardous material.
The answer is yes. A shipper may apply the empty label depicted in § 172.450 to an empty packaging that formerly contained a hazardous material of any hazard class.
I hope this satisfies your request.
