Hartford, IL 62048

Ref. No. 09-0246

Dear Ms. Snyder:

This is in response to your electronic transmission requesting clarification of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180) as amended in a recent rulemaking, "Revision of Requirements for Emergency Response Telephone Numbers," (HM-206F, Docket No. 2006-26322) published in the Federal Register on October 19, 2009 (74 FR 53413). You submitted a shipping paper and ask whether it meets the emergency response information (ERI) telephone requirement as amended in the HM-206F final rule. You state that Valero is the registrant of the ERI provider.

The HM-206F final rule requires the name of the person (offeror) that is registered with the emergency response information (ERI) telephone number provider, or its contract number or unique identifier, to be included on a shipping paper in association with (immediately before, after, above or below) the ERI telephone number, unless the name is prominently noted elsewhere on the shipping paper (see § 172.604(b)(1)). The shipping paper that you submitted meets the HM-206F final rule requirement because the name of registrant (Valero) with the ERI telephone number provider is displayed in association with (before, in this case) the ERI telephone number.

I hope this information is helpful. Please contact this office should you have additional questions.
