Dear Mr. Brown:

This is in response to your letter dated August 4, 1999, and. subsequent telephone conversation with a member of my staff regarding marking of non-bulk packagings intended to contain combustible liquids under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180).  Specifically you ask if the marking on your non-bulk packaging indicating that the packaging is intended to contain liquid materials not subject to the HMR is worded in a way that is consistent with the requirements of the HMR.

The answer is yes.  It is the opinion of this Office that the marking you intend to place on your packaging is not in violation of the HMR.

I hope this satisfies your request.
