Mr. Andrew N. Romach               Ref. No. 03-0258
URS Corporation

Morrisville, NC 27560

Dear Mr. Romach:

This is in response to your letter dated October 8, 2003 concerning the requirement for the shipper's certification under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts. 171-180). Specifically you asked whether a shipper's certification may be signed with a company name.

The answer is no. The shipper's certification specified in § 172.204 must be legibly signed by a principal, officer, partner, or employee of the shipper or his agent
(§172.204 (d)).

I hope this satisfies your request.
