Its in strict violation to the DOT to move barrels or drums of this product without the correct packing and labeling. This should include, a UN certified drum, or bag, Corrosive label 8, UN number, Chemical name ( Sodium Hydroxide ),CAS number, packing group II, and a poison sign. Even in conducting a repacking operation, if this was the case with this engineering company, same labeling regulations should be followed... R. Iskandar Ph.D. JLM Industries Inc.
