Dear Mr. Ziebell:

This is in response to your July 13, 2012 letter requesting our determination as to whether the red colors on the placard samples you presented are in conformance with the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180).
In accordance with § 172.519(d)(3), upon visual examination, it is our determination that the red colors on the sample placards do fall within the color tolerances referenced in Table 1 of the Hazardous Materials Label and Placard Color Tolerance Charts found in Appendix A to Part 172 of the HMR.

I trust this satisfies your inquiry. Please contact us if we can be of further assistance.
