Ref. No. 13-0107

Dear Mr. Kaczynski:

This responds to your May 15, 2013 email requesting clarification of the carrier information contact requirements in the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180).  Specifically, you request that we clarify the provisions of § 172.606(b)(1) as to acceptable methods to mark the telephone number of the carrier on a transport vehicle containing hazardous materials.

You provide photographs in your email (see attached) of the FMCSA annual inspection sticker, which includes the telephone number of the motor carrier.  You indicate that the sticker is placed on the driver’s front side exterior of the trailer.  The photographs show that the sticker is on the front exterior near the brake hose and electrical connections.  You ask if the location of the sticker on your trailers and telephone number on the FMCSA inspection sticker meets the requirements of § 172.606(b)(1).

Yes.  The the company telephone number on the FMCSA annual inspection sticker and the placement of the sticker, as shown in the photographs, meets the requirements set forth in § 172.606(b)(1).

I hope this answers your inquiry. If you need additional assistance, please contact this office at 202-366-8553.
