Wrong Cert Stamp on HAZMAT Boxes

Tom asks:

I have a question regarding cert stamps. If we produced a doublewall case with a combination of 56-23-56-23-56, specifying it as a 61 ECT, but mistakenly stamped the cases with a 350# Mullen Stamp, would we not be in compliance with NMFTA? What implications would it have if the case carried HAZMAT product?

The board combination with three 56# liners could have an ECT values in the high eighties. It has more than enough Mullen potential to test above 350# test. You would be compliant with NMFTA. However, in the case of HazMat there could be an issue with the plus/minus basis weight requirement for the grade specified in the cert stamp.
