Proposed New Marking Standards for Parcels Containing Hazardous Materials

 

The proposed rule Federal Register revises mailing standards to adopt new mandatory marking standards for parcels containing mailable hazardous materials that will align with revised requirements provided by the Department of Transportation (DOT). This proposed rule also provides terminology and categorization changes in response to DOT’s pending elimination of the “Other Regulated Material”' (ORM-D) category and partial elimination of the “Consumer Commodity” category.

 

We look forward to your comments on this proposal by October 23, 2012.
