Hazardous Material Shipping Guide


Best Practice Guide to Shipping Hazardous Materials offers simplified compliance for DOT rules and regulations.  This guide helps convey the basics of hazardous material regulation. From dry cleaners to heavy manufacturers, businesses that create waste must report loads they ship. It is crucial to train personnel and ship hazardous materials responsibly. It requires careful work to keep shipments safe and to protect the neighborhoods and environments these hazardous wastes pass through.


The guide includes:

  • Context for the rules — where they came from, and who they apply to
  • Descriptions of the labels and placards required for marking shipments
  • Covering of other markings like shipping names and identification numbers
  • Explains shipping papers and recordkeeping requirements


See what each classification means, and how marking and documentation requirements interact. Understand the overlaps between the DOT’s rules and other chemical labeling systems, like GHS and HazCom 2012. This guide will help you comply with the law, and make your shipments safer.
