Dear Mr. Hayden:

This is in response to your letter regarding the packing group determination of Polyester resin kits, 3, UN3269, under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180). Specifically, you asked if Special Provision 40 can be used in determining the packing group for shipping these kits.

The answer is yes. Special Provision 40 applies to Polyester resin kits. Special Provision 121 was shown for the entry in the § 172.101 Table through a printing error. RSPA has proposed to correct this error in a notice of proposed rulemaking that was published in the Federal Register on August 18, 1998. In the interim, Special Provision 40 must be used.

I hope this satisfies your request.
