Transporting hazardous materials can be risky. Federal regulations tell you how to contain the material and communicate the risk. They also assure safe drivers and equipment.
The Code of Federal Regulations gives regulations for hazardous materials. These regulations are located in title 49, parts 171-180. You will hear these regulations referred to as 49 CFR 171-180.
The Hazardous Materials Table in the regulations includes a list of hazardous materials.
However, this table does not show all hazardous materials. A material is considered hazardous based on its characteristics. A shipper decides if a product meets the definition of a hazardous material in the regulations.
Because the federal regulations change often, be sure that your copy is up to date. You may get a copy from your local Government Printing Office bookstore and various publishers. Union or company offices often have copies for drivers to use.
