Dear Ms. Medley:
This is in response to your letter requesting clarification of the marking requirements for packagings containing limited quantities and ORM-D materials under the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180).
As you are aware, in RSPA Docket HM-21511 (68 FR 44991) we added a new section, § 172.315, into the HMR that authorizes an alternative marking requirement for packagings containing limited quantities of hazardous materials. This section allows limited quantity packagings to be marked with the ID number placed within a diamond. This marking is optional and may be used in lieu of the marking requirements prescribed in § 172.301 (a). Section 172.315 does not apply to packagings containing ORM-D materials. The marking requirements in § 172.316 that apply to ORM-D materials remain unchanged.
I trust this satisfies your inquiry.
