New Dry Ice "Class 9" Shipping Labels - effective October 1, 2014!
New Dry Ice "Class 9" Label Requirement
As of October 1, 2014 USDOT, IATA and ICAO will require all shipments containing dry ice be labeled with the new Class 9 label.
See the images below of the old label and new label to observe the difference.
In addition, the UN1845 on your package must be in at least 6 mm print for packages under 30KG and at least 12mm print for packages over 30 KG. If the label you are using doesn't meet this requirement please rewrite the UN number legibly and at the appropriate size.
Discontinue use and dispose of your old labels by the end of September 2014. If you have a FedEx account, you may order a roll of the new label by contacting FedEx at 1-800-GO-FEDEX (1-800-463-3339).
