Labelmaster Offers Early 49 CFR Book for Hazmat Shipping

Labelmaster is offering its Early 49 CFR book, with up-to-date domestic regulations for the shipping and transportation of hazardous materials, six months prior to release of the government’s new 49 CFR regs.

The resource includes requirements for markings, labels, placards, shipping papers, training, emergency response and packaging standards for hazmat transport via highway, rail, air and water. The regulations are updated as of Oct. 1 of each year, but the government’s release isn’t made available until the following March. Features of the Labelmaster publication include a four-digit-number cross-reference table; detailed index, tabbed sections, color displays of hazmat labels and placards, adhesive tabs to identify sections, and easy-to-read hazardous materials table. In addition to an online version, the book is being published as a single 6” x 9” volume, instead of the government’s two-volume set.
