I am not certain how to respond to your question that was posted to PNEAC. It appears that you are asking about DOT regulations. When it comes DOT regulations as a manufacturer and shipper, you need to be trained. It is also important to understand that the definition of a "hazardous material" under DOT is very specific and you need to compare DOT's definition with the ingredients of the products you are shipping. Under the DOT regulations, there is relief granted for shipping limited quantities of materials. For ferric chloride it looks like if you ship in less than gallon containers, then you do not need to use the formal DOT label for the shipping container and can use the simpler LQ labeling system. It also appears that you do not have to pay the registration fee, but you may still have to register with DOT. I would strongly suggest you attend a training class to learn the regulations and how they apply to your particular situation. It may be your involvement is minimal, but the only way to determine that is to compare the DOT shipping regulations with the type and quantity of all products offered by your company. Let me know if you need more information. Gary Jones Graphic Arts Technical Foundation 200 Deer Run Road Sewickley, PA 15143 412/741-6860 x608 - Phone 412/741-2311 - Fax
