Dear Mr. Kleinman:
This is in response to your letter dated August 28, 2003 regarding the limited quantity marking requirement established by Docket HM-215E(68FR44992; 45031; July3l, 2003). Specifically, you ask if the technical name required on the shipping paper by § 172.203(k) of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR: 49 CFR Parts 171-180) must be marked on the packaging when using the limited quantity marking found in § 172.315 of HM-215E.
As specified in § 173.315, marking the package with the identification number inside a white squareon-point configuration identifies the material as a limited quantity and fulfills the requirements of § 172,301(a)(1). If a shipper uses this method to identify a packaging containing a limited quantity, he is not required to mark the shipping name or technical name on the packaging. If a shipper chooses to mark the packaging with the shipping name, then a technical name may be added, but so long as the requirements of § 173.315 are met the technical name is not required.
I hope this satisfies your request.
