Hazard Zone--One of four levels of hazard (hazard zones A through D) assigned to gases and one of two levels of
hazard (hazard zones A and B) assigned to liquids that are poisonous by inhalation. A hazard zone is based on the
LC50 value for acute inhalation toxicity of gases and vapors.
Hazardous Materials Inspectors--DoD personnel whose duties require them to review the integrity of the packaging
and accuracy of documentation for all hazardous materials being transported within the Defense Transportation
System (DTS) or by commercial carriers.
Hazardous Materials Preparers--DoD personnel whose duties require them to sign legally binding documentation
certifying that hazardous materials are properly classified, packaged, marked and labeled, and in all respects meet
the legal requirements for transportation within the DTS or by commercial carriers.
Hazardous Materials--A substance or material that is capable of posing an unreasonable risk to health, safety, and
property when transported and has been so designated by this manual. May also be referred to as hazardous cargo or

When in a mixture or solution:
For radionuclides, conforms to paragraph 6 of the appendix to 49 CFR 172.101.
For other than radio nuclides, is in a concentration by weight which equals or exceeds the

Concentration by Weight
Hazardous Waste--Any material that is subject to the hazardous waste MANIFEST requirements of the EPA
specified in 40 CFR 262.
Highway Route Controlled Quantity--A quantity within a single package that is over 3,000 times the A
Form) or A2 (Normal Form) value of the radionuclides specified in A11.4; or over 1000 TBq (27,000 Ci),
whichever is least.
Inert Solid--A solid that does not damage the thermal stability or increase the hazard of the organic peroxide.
A dust or mist with a lethal concentration where 50 percent of the test subjects die (LC50) from acute
toxicity on inhalation of not more than 10 mg/L.
