      What are the re-test requirements for a 275 gal metal tote (intermediate bulk container, IBC) marked UN 31A/Y?

      Is there a DOT Special Permit for shipping empties (with residue)?

      Are there any exceptions for shipping empties by by private carrier?

      What are the labelling & marking reuirements for an IBC of this size.

      Thanks in advance.

        Dear PC,
        Answers are from IMDG but similar rules are in CFR 49.

        What are the re-test requirements for a 275 gal metal tote (intermediate bulk container, IBC) marked UN 31A/Y?

        Retest Requirements ( 2.5 and 5 years ) are listed in IMDG Code section 6.5.4.4 and 6.5.4.5 ( for repaired IBCs)


        Is there a DOT Special Permit for shipping empties (with residue)?

        No need of any special permit provided no such requirement for the individual substance or article.
        However in addition to all other requirements, the shipping paper must contain the words " EMPTY UNCLEANED or RESIDUE LAST CONTAINED before or after the PROPER SHIPPING NAME


        Are there any exceptions for shipping empties by by private carrier?

        Regret, do not know what you mean by private carrier

        What are the labeling & marking requirements for an IBC of this size?

        IBC 31A/Y or 275 gallons (Approx 1041)
        A package having size of 450 liters or above shall be marked/labelled on two opposing sides.
