A question from the regulated community (01.26.17):
My reply, buying time:
That’s a good question! Let me research and get back to you.
Final answer that same day:
I believe I have an answer to your question. I assume it is related to the new size requirement for the identification number on a non-bulk packaging. Please see below:
- The new size requirement for the identification number applies to the marking on a non-bulk packaging.
- Though possible, it is unlikely that a lab pack for hazardous waste will be shipped in anything other than a non-bulk packaging.
- There is no exception to the new size requirement for lab packs that I can find in 49 CFR 173.12.
