Key UpdatesRevisions to the chart include the removal of the obsolete hazmat markings and labels.
- The "old" lithium battery handling marking or "handling label" for excepted lithium batteries was removed from the Chart. It was replaced by a new lithium battery marking as of January 1, 2019.
- 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- An outdated version of the DOT Class 9 (Miscellaneous) hazard label that featured a dividing line was removed from the Chart.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.

Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
I chose Lion's online webinar because it is simple, effective, and easily accessible.
Environmental Health & Safety Technician
If I need thorough training or updating, I always use Lion. Lion is always the best in both instruction and materials.
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.
Material Release Agent
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
As always, Lion never disappoints
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
