Such containers shall be made and marked in compliance with specifications of the regulations in this part. Containers that do not comply with such specifications shall not be marked to indicate compliance.
Freight Classification, Rule 40, section 5, of capacities not exceeding 110 gallons, are permitted by the regulations in this part for use in transportation or storing combustible liquids on board passenger vessels. Single-trip containers, manufactured under Rule 40, are not authorized for such use.
(b) For shipments comprising C.F.C. specification metal barrels or drums the bill of lading or other shipping paper is required to show the following certifilcate over the written or stamped facsimile signature of the shipper or his duly authorized agent:
The C.F.C. metal barrels or drums used for this shipment are marked in compliance with requirements of Rule 40, section 5, of the Consolidated Freight Classification.
(c) The requirements as to marking will not be necessary for metal barrels or drums, equivalent to C.F.C. Rule 40 barrel or drums, when manufactured in foreign countries, but bill of lading or other shipping paper shall bear the following certificate over the written or stamped facsimile signature of the shipper or his duly authorized agent:
The metal barrels or drums used for this shipment are of foreign manufacture and conform to construction requirements of Rule 40, section 5, of the Consolidated Freight Classification.

§ 146.05-8 Non-specification containers. Metal barrels or drums, wooden barrels or kegs, wooden boxes, fiberboard boxes, burlap bags, multiwall paper bags and bales comprise the type of non-specification containers that are permitted for certain regulated substances. The detailed regulations in the tables for the various classifications set forth the requirements governing such containers where permitted. The design and construction of non-specification containers must be such as to prevent the occurrence of defects that permit leakage of their contents and strong enough to stand, without failure, all shocks ordinarily incident to handling and stowage during transit. The shipper's attention is called to the regulation in the various tables which requires the officer in charge of loading the vessel to satisfy himself that a non-specification container offered for transportation, when containing a permitted substance, is sufficient in all respects for the purpose intended. [Order 74, 6 FR. 269, Jan. 11, 1941]

(d) The outside of the overpack must also be marked "Inside Packages Comply with Prescribed Specifications" unless the specification markings on the inside packaging are entirely visible through openings in the overpack.
[CGFR 69-72, 34 F.R. 17487, Oct. 29, 1969]
Reuse of containers.
(a) Containers used more than once (refilled and reshipped after having been previously emptied) shall be in such condition, including closing devices and cushioning materials, that they will protect their contents during transit as efficiently as new containers. Repairs must be made in an efficient manner and parts that are weak, broken, or otherwise deteriorated shall be replaced.
(b) Markings applied as prescribed by the specifications shall be maintained in a legible condition.
(c) If, on account of painting or any other reason, the markings as prescribed for any container cannot be kept plain and legible, a metal plate, brazed or soldered or otherwise securely fastened to the container, with a reproduction of the prescribed markings plainly stamped thereon, may be permitted.
(d) Containers previously used for the shipment of any explosive or other dangerous article shall have old marks of contents, addresses, and labels, if any, thoroughly removed or obliterated before being used for the shipment of other articles.
(e) Boxes previously used for high explosives containing a liquid explosive ingredient shall not be again used for shipments of any character.
(f) Kegs previously used for any chicrate shall not be again used for shipments of any character.
(g) Metal kegs previously used for black powder not contained in an interior package shall not be again used for shipments of any explosive.
(h) Single trip DOT specification containers from which the contents have once been removed following use for shipment of any article, must not again be used as shipping containers for explosives, flammable liquids, flammable solids, oxidizing materials, corrosive liquids or poisons, Class B, C, or D, as defined in this part except under approval of the DOT for each reuse and for specific commodities or classes of commodities. Where specific permission is given in these detailed regulations in the table for Combustible Liquids or Hazardous Articles such single-trip containers are permitted for reuse when in compliance with paragraphs (a), (b), and (c) of this section.
(i) Cylinders or other containers which are designated as nonrefillable or for single-trip use by the DOT specifications and from which the contents have
