Reminder: Time's up for shipping paper transition

As of January 1, 2013, shippers of hazardous materials must conform to the required order of basic DOT information on shipping papers. That order is:

  • The UN identification number of the material as shown in Column 4 of the Hazardous Materials Table (49 CFR 172.101);
  • The proper shipping name found in Column 2 of the table;
  • The hazard class or division number prescribed for the material, as shown in Column 3 of the table table;
  • The packing group in Roman numerals, as shown in Column 5 of the table.

As an EHS professional, it’s hard to tell if you are being paid competitively, and as an employer, it’s hard to tell if you are offering salaries that are competitive and efficient. For a Limited Time we’re offering a FREE copy of the 2018 EHS Salary Guide! Download Now

PHMSA changed the order in 2006 to align with international standards. The 2006 final rule allowed for a transition period for using the shipping description sequences until January 1, 2013.
