Dear Mr. Dalton:

This is in response to your letter from June 23, 2003 regarding the requirements for marking packages with the consignee or consignor's name and address under § 172.301(d) of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171¬180). Specifically, you ask if just the city and state are sufficient to meet the addressing requirements, and also if a PO Box would be suitable. You also gave the following three examples:

EXAMPLE 1

AGA Gas, Inc.

Cleveland, OH 44101

EXAMPLE 2

AGA Gas, Inc.
PO Box 94737 Cleveland, OH 44101

EXAMPLE 3

AGA Gas, Inc.
6055 Rockside Woods Blvd.
Independence, OH 44131

Each of these addresses would be suitable to meet the requirements specified in § 172.a01(d).

Sincerely,

 

John A. Gale
