plicable sections in part 173 of this sub-

(c) Notwithstanding the provisions of 

§ 172.402(a), a Division 6.1 subsidiary 
hazard label is not required on a pack-
age containing a Class 8 (corrosive) 
material which has a subsidiary hazard 
of Division 6.1 (poisonous) if the tox-
icity of the material is based solely on

dition, a Division 4.1 subsidiary hazard 
label is not required on a package bear-
ing a Division 4.2 label.

poisonous by inhalation (see § 171.8 of

cepted from the POISON INHALATION 
HAZARD or POISON GAS label or 
placard, under the conditions set forth 
in § 171.23(b)(10) of this subchapter.
