Dear Mr. Taylor:
The answer is yes. The HMR do not require removal of the identification markings and/or placards when a package has a residue of a Class 9 hazardous substance. However, the shipping paper should 00 consistent with the transport vehicle's hazard communications by prefacing the shipping description with "RESIDUE Last Contained *** " as provided by § 172.203(e)(1). However, markings or placards may be removed when the Class 9 hazardous substance residue is below its reportable quantity. No shipping paper is necessary if placards and markings are removed.
I hope this information is helpful. contact us.
