Hazardous Materials Checklist

Use this HazMat checklist for an easy to read list of information needed when shipping hazardous materials. It's very important to stay compliant when shipping hazardous materials. Each description of a hazardous material must be in sequential order. Abbreviations are prohibited except for packaging type, quantity, or Limited Quantity (LTD QTY). Emergency response information must accompany shipment. Hazardous substances - the letters "RQ" are required before or after basic description.

Each description of a hazardous material must be in sequential order (items 3, 4, 5 and 6 or 5, 3, 4, and 6 from checklist). "RQ" may be substituted for an "x" in HM column. This checklist is provided to assist in your preparation of compliant hazardous material Bill of Ladings.
