American Coatings Association


Moving paint and coatings products from the manufacturing facility to a distribution center and to the end user safely, securely and efficiently is vital to our industry. Approximately half of the paint and coatings products meet the criteria for hazardous materials and are regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT)  Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) along with the modal regulations for air, rail, highway and sea transport.

For products moving across the globe, the United Nations’ Recommendations serves as the model regulation for transport.
