03 Oct, 2014 by  Dave Macha

In an effort to harmonize 49CFR and IATA regulations, effective October 1st 2014, USDOT  discontinued the use of the current Class 9 and Dry Ice labels, as well as the Class 6 Infectious Substances label.

1. Class 9 Dangerous Goods Label:  The black horizontal line at the bottom of the vertical lines was removed from the new label:
