Dear Mr. Blair:

This is in response to your letter dated June 26, 1998, requesting clarification on the stowage of explosives and poisons in the same transport vehicle.  Specifically, you ask if 49 CFR 177.835(c) prohibits the transportation of Division 1.1 or 1.2 explosives with any Division 2.3 or Division 6.1 material within the same transport vehicle. 

It is the opinion of this Office that 49 CFR 177.835(c) prohibits the stowage of Division 1.1 and Division 1.2 explosive material in the same transport vehicle with Division 2.3 or 6.1 materials.  We will propose to clarify this section in a future rulemaking.

I hope this satisfies your request.
