Revisions to the chart include the removal
of the obsolete hazmat markings and labels.
- DOT removed the ORM-D marking for hazmat consumer commodities, which is phased out of use in ground transportation as of January 1, 2021.
- An outdated version of the DOT Class 9 (Miscellaneous) hazard label that featured a dividing line was removed from the Chart.
The symbols indicating an IBC is designed for stacking or not designed for stacking (See 49 CFR 178.703(b)(7)) were removed from the chart but remain applicable.
DOT Chart 17 also illustrates three options for displaying UN identification numbers on bulk packagings or vehicles: On an orange panel, in the middle of a placard, or in the middle of a white placard-like device.
DOT released the previous version of the chart, Chart 16
, in October 2017.
