    I’m at a major corporation and they dont have proper placards. I’m ready to roll if I can print out UN numbers in the correct size. Anyone know of a website or a way to do it on my printer?

    TIA

    Just have to look in the book. Back when needing the UN number on Tanks, J J Used to sell a set of stamps and placards with blank white space to stamp in the number as needed.

    49 CFR 172.519(c)(2) Except as otherwise provided in this subpart, the hazard class or division number, as appropriate, must be shown in numerals measuring at least 41 mm (1.6 inches) in height.

    49 CFR 172.519(c)(3) Except as otherwise provided in this subpart, when text indicating a hazard is displayed on a placard, the printing must be in letters measuring at least 41 mm (1.6 inches) in height.

    each placard has rule on the size of text:

    In addition to complying with § 172.519, the background on the FLAMMABLE SOLID placard must be white with seven vertical red stripes. The stripes must be equally spaced, with one red stripe placed in the center of the label. Each red stripe and each white space between two red stripes must be 25 mm (1.0 inches) wide. The letters in the word “SOLID” must be at least 38.1 mm (1.5 inches) high. The symbol, text, class number and inner border must be black.

    The first sentence says it all. The first thing you tell them is unload it so I can be on my way. Any Corp that ships any kind of haz-mat knows they have to provide the proper placards to the carrier!!!

    I would tell them to pull the load off my truck, it’s the shippers responsibility to have the proper placards.

    It's the shipper's responsibility to give you placards.

    I have picked up where they have sticker letters and they put them in the middle to get placarding right.

    Anyway good luck.
     
    CAXPT Thanks this.
