Dear Mr. Ramirez:

This is in response to your letter dated October 28, 1999, regarding inner container pressure requirements for limited quantities of compressed gasses under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180).  Specifically you ask if an inner container meeting the requirements under § 173.306(a)(1) may be charged to a pressure exceeding 180 psig at 130 F.

The answer is yes.  Inner containers shipped under the provisions of § 173.306 (a) (1) have no pressure limits.

I hope this satisfies your request.
