Hazmat Labeling, Flammable, Consumer Commodity, UN?

Jeff asks –

I have a question regarding the correct markings for a customer of ours that sells marine paints and coatings. Can you please help clarify which markings are required? It is our understanding that the box can have either the Flammable Liquids placard or the Consumer Commodity placard but not both. Also, if using the Flammable Liquids placard are additional UN markings required?

For your first question you are correct. Only one placard can be used, either Flammable Liquids, or Consumer Commodity as long as it falls under the guidelines for Consumer Commodity.

For your second question regarding UN markings, according to phmsa.dot.gov it would appear that yes, the UN markings should be used in addition to the Flammable Liquids placard.

If anyone has any additional information or insight on this topic, please feel free to share it with us.
