Lonza, Inc.
17-17 Route 208
Fair Lawn, NJ 07410

Dear Ms. Lynch:

This is in response to your August 6, 2004 letter requesting clarification of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180). Specifically, you ask if a shipper must re-mark the consignor address on packages that were preprinted with an address that is no-longer a valid address for the shipper.

Under § 172.301(d) a non-bulk package must be marked with the consignor or consignee’s name and address. The address must be a valid and current address of the consignor or consignee.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact this office.
