Here is a type of question I receive frequently (5.11.16):
I’m pulling a gooseneck trailer which is carrying two one- way totes of 1760 (corrosive solution) and 1 tote of 1824 (50% caustic). Both totes have proper labels and Id’s on opposite ends. Can I placard the trailer using only (8) corrosive placards or do I need 2 sets of placards with proper id’s?
That is a good question. I will try to answer it here, if you need more information I can provide that later.
You are required to display the identification number for each bulk packaging of a different HazMat that you have on your vehicle. In this case you have two different identification numbers. You must display both on all four sides of the vehicle.
However, if the identification numbers are visible on the totes while in transportation on all four sides of the vehicle, then it is not necessary to display the identification number with the placards on the vehicle.
I hope this helps. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any other questions.
He must have been waiting for an answer because within a few moments I received this reply with further questions:
