You may be shipping hazmat and not even know it. Many businesses are surprised to find out that commonly shipped products are often classified as hazmat under the U.S. Department of Transportation's Hazardous Materials Regulations.

The following information is intended to provide information for shipping hazardous materials using several exceptions in the domestic and international regulations. Each example includes diagrams of package marking and labeling, applicable documentation requirements and regulatory texts that applies to each scenario. Consult mode-specific regulations for complete regulatory reference.
