Reference No. 16-0156

Dear Ms. Eberle,

This letter is in response to your September 1, 2016, letter requesting clarification of the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180) applicable to shipping papers. Specifically, you ask whether guidance provided in a letter of interpretation issued February 15, 2011, under Reference No. 10-0262, pertaining to the display of emergency response information in accordance with § 172.604(a)(3)(ii) is still valid.

The answer is yes. It continues to be the opinion of this Office that the placement of the emergency response telephone number and contact information described in Reference No. 10-0262 is consistent with requirements in § 172.604(a)(3)(ii) and (b)(1).

I hope this information is helpful. Please contact us if we can be of further assistance.
