Description

Available in annual subscription only.  The supplement version of the book is more cost-effective than the full book version while still offering the same expansive amount of information.   Complete book updated and issued in April, followed by 3 supplements shipped each quarter.  Quarterly updates make it the most current and up-to-date regulatory book on the market.  Covers all the US Regulations needed for shipping hazardous materials via all forms of transportation, all changes highlighted within each issue, extensive publisher enhancements and proprietary information found nowhere else,  also includes excerpts from the current ERG.  Choose between BE156 (loose-leaf) or BE155 (bound).  The BE156 comes in loose leaf format allows easy replacement of the updated pages when each supplement arrives, making one complete up-to-date book.  We offer the BE102 (Binder and Tab set) to complement BE156.
