For the purpose of this section, safety devices are articles which contain pyrotechnic substances or hazardous materials of other classes and are used in vehicles, vessels or aircraft to enhance safety to persons. Examples are: air bag inflators, air bag modules, seat-belt pretensioners and pyromechanical devices. Pyromechanical devices are assembled components for tasks such as but not limited to separation, locking, release-and-drive or occupant restraint.
An air bag inflator consisting of a casing containing an igniter, a booster material, a gas generant and, in some cases, a pressure receptacle cylinder is a gas generator used to inflate an air bag in a supplemental restraint system in a motor vehicle.
An air bag module is the air bag inflator plus an inflatable bag assembly. A seat-belt pretensioner contains similar hazardous materials and is used in the operation of a seat-belt restraining system in a motor vehicle. All other Class 9 UN safety device designs are required to be submitted to the Associate Administrator for approval and assigned an EX number; 2 A safety device may be classed as Division 1.

Product codes must be traceable to the specific EX number assigned to the device by the Associate Administrator. Further, if the EX number or product code is contained on the shipping paper then it is not required to be marked on the outside package. A safety device that has been classed as a Division 1. When offered for domestic transportation by highway, rail freight, cargo vessel or cargo aircraft, a serviceable safety device classed as either Class 9 UN or Division 1.

The device must be cushioned and secured within the package to prevent movement during transportation. Rigid, outer packagings, meeting the general packaging requirements of part are authorized as follows.
Additionally, the UN specification packagings listed in paragraphs e 1 , 2 , and 3 of this section must meet the packaging specification and performance requirements of part of this subchapter at the Packing Group III performance level. The packagings must be designed and constructed to prevent movement of the articles and inadvertent activation.
Further, if the Class 9 designation is contingent upon packaging specified by the authorized testing agency, shipments of the safety device must be in compliance with the prescribed packaging. Containers or handling devices must provide adequate support to allow stacking at least three units high with no resultant damage; B If not completely enclosed by design, the container or handling device must be covered with plastic, fiberboard, metal, or other suitable material.
The covering must be secured to the container by banding or other comparable methods; and C Internal dunnage must be sufficient to prevent movement of the devices within the container. When removed from, or were intended to be used in, a motor vehicle that was manufactured as required for use in the United States and offered for domestic transportation by highway or cargo vessel to Recycling or Waste Disposal facilities, a serviceable safety device classed as Class 9 UN may be offered for transportation and transported in the following additional packaging: i Specification and non-specification steel drums with a wall and lid thickness not less than 20 gauge.

Thus, 49 CFR The Code is divided into 50 titles which represent broad areas subject to Federal regulation. Each title is divided into chapters which usually bear the name of the issuing agency. Each chapter is further sub- divided into parts covering specific regulatory areas. Each volume of the Code is revised at least once each calendar year and issued on a quarterly basis approximately as follows: Title 1 through Title The Code of Federal Regulations is prima facie evidence of the text of the original documents 44 U. These two publications must be used together to deter- mine the latest version of any given rule.
