either "Hydrogen peroxide aqueous solution (with not less than 20 percent but not more than 40 percent
hydrogen peroxide)" or "Hydrogen peroxide aqueous solution (with 30 percent hydrogen peroxide)."
Hazardous Wastes. The PSN for a hazardous material that is a hazardous waste must include the word
"WASTE" preceding the name of the material (i.e., WASTE, ACETONE). Comply with all requirements
of this manual identified for the hazardous material when shipped as waste.
HA4.2.3. Column 3: Hazard Class and Division. Column 3 contains:
Primary hazard class and division numbers. When this manual references hazard class, that includes any
division number if appropriate. For Class 1 (explosives), the compatibility group is also given. See A4.3
for additional information on class/divisions.
Identification of "FORBIDDEN" items. Do not transport "FORBIDDEN" items by military aircraft.
Some items that contain explosive material may be assigned to a classification other than Class 1 by DoD
explosives hazard classification approval authorities due to the predominant hazard (see A184.108.40.206).
Compatibility group letters assigned to non-Class 1 material do not apply to military air transportation.
A4.2.4. Column 4: Identification Number. Column 4 lists the identification number assigned to each PSN.
Ship items classified with "UN" (United Nations) or "ID" (identification) numbers domestically or
Ship items classified with "NA" (North American) numbers domestically only, or to and from Canada or
Mexico. Use of UN numbers is preferred even for domestic shipment.
New or revised UN or NA numbers in 49 CFR, part 172, ICAO Technical Instructions, or IATA
Dangerous Goods Regulation are recognized for use with this manual.
A4.2.5. Column 5: Packing Group (PG). Column 5 specifies one or more packing groups assigned to each PSN
and hazard class. Hazard classes 2, 7, and ORM-D do not have packing groups. See A4.4 for additional
information on PG.
A4.2.6. Column 6: Subsidiary Risk. Column 6 identifies the hazard class/division of any subsidiary risk posed
by a material. Subsidiary risk may vary, depending on the applicable PG.
A4.2.7. Column 7: Special Provisions. Column 7 specifies codes for special provisions that are applicable for
each PSN, hazard class, and PG. Special provision codes may vary, depending on the PG. Requirements of the
special provision codes are identified in table A4.2. The codes reflect four categories: numeric codes, codes
beginning with "A", codes beginning with "N", and codes beginning with a P.
Use codes beginning with a P to determine passenger eligibility for transport with hazardous materials.
Use all other codes to determine packaging provisions, restrictions, and exceptions from requirements for
particular quantities or forms of materials.
When an additional packaging requirement is prescribed, the requirement is mandatory.
HA4.2.8. Column 8: Packaging Paragraph. This column lists the applicable packaging paragraph.
FORBIDDEN items are also identified in this column.
Except when otherwise identified, prepare hazardous material shipments according to the specified
Packaging paragraphs in each attachment provide titles as a guide for PSNs covered by that paragraph.
These titles are a guide only and are not all-inclusive.
If a packaging paragraph in table A4.1 specifies packaging that is not applicable to the form of the material
(i.e., the packaging specified is for a solid material and the material shipped is in liquid form) use the
following guidance to select the appropriate paragraph:
Use either packaging paragraph A8.3 (liquids) or A8.4 (solids) as appropriate.
Use either packaging paragraph A9.7 (liquids) or A9.8 (solids) as appropriate.
Use either packaging paragraph A10.5 (liquids) or A10.6 (solids) as appropriate.
Use either packaging paragraph A12.3 (liquids) or A12.4 (solids) as appropriate.
A4.3. Classifying Hazardous Materials.
A4.3.1. Hazard Class Names. The hazard class and division is a numerical identification which describes the class
(type) of primary hazard involved and if appropriate, its division within the class. Use DoD 6050.5, Hazardous
Material Information System, product Material Safety Data Sheet, or other manufacturers information if assistance
in determining the hazard classification is needed. Figure A4.1 lists class and division numbers and the
corresponding class and division names.
