(c) Meets the definition of a Poison Gas (HCC G1); and
(d) Meets the definition of an Oxidizing Gas (HCC G4).
G8 - Gas, Poison, Flammable. Any product which is required to be shipped as a UN Class 2.3 under 49 CFR
173.115(c) (Gas, poisonous by inhalation), and is required to be marked "Inhalation Hazard" under 49 CFR
172.313. This means a material which is a gas at 20oC (68oF) or lower at one atmosphere of pressure (101.3kPa,
14.7 psi) (a material which has a boiling point of 20oC (68oF) or lower at one atmosphere) and which:
(a) Is known to be so toxic to humans as to pose a hazard to health during transportation; or
(b) In the absence of data on human toxicity, is presumed to be so toxic to humans, because when tested on young
albino rats for 1 hour, it has a LC50 (inhalation rat) less than 5000 ml/m3 (ppm); and
(c) Meets the definition of a Flammable Gas (HCC G2).
G9 - Gas, Poison, Corrosive, Oxidizer (Nonflammable). A Gas, Poison, Corrosive, Oxidizer (Nonflammable)

K1 - Infectious Substance. A viable micro-organism or its toxin, which causes or may cause animal or human
disease as published in Title 42 CFR, Section 72.3. Includes Infectious Substances Affecting Animals only (UN
2900), Infectious Substances Affecting Humans (UN 2814), and Etiologic Agent, N.O.S. (NA 2814).

M1 - Magnetized Material. Any material meeting the definition of a magnetized material as defined in the
International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations 188.8.131.52. The best method for determining magnetic
properties is specified in IATA Packing Instruction 902, Method 2. This method specifies using a magnetic
compass, accurate to one degree increments, that is placed on one of two points positioned 4.6 m (15 ft) apart
which are aligned in an East/West direction in an area that is free from any magnetic interference other than the
earth's magnetic field. The packaged item to be tested is placed on the other point and rotated 360 degrees in its
