This is to request approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for a three-year renewal for the information collection titled, "Container Certification Statements." This reporting requirement is mandatory for the person responsible for packing or loading a freight container or transport vehicle containing hazardous materials for transportation by manned vessel in ocean or coastwise service. Furthermore, there are additional requirements for persons who ship Class 1 hazardous materials (explosives), other than Division 1.4 in a similar manner. The documentation is required when a package is offered for transportation via vessel. This certification statement is a statement made by the required persons that they ascertain that the package was loaded, marked, and placarded properly. This may be indicated on a shipping paper or another accompanying document. Carriers receive this information to ensure that they are transporting packaging that has been certified as packaged properly.
