Can DGControl handle RQ shipments for domestic and international shipments to and from (or, within,) the United States of America?

A. Yes! The US government’s requirements are fully respected by the software. (49CFR 172.101, Appendix A.) Note that a product that contains a Reportable Quantity (RQ) of an environmentally unfriendly product that is not apparent from the name, i.e. Paint Class 3 UN 1263 PG III, is still subject to the RQ rules. This legal requirement is met by endorsements on the documentation and on the packaging. Once you identify the material as a “RQ” commodity or quantity, it will cause “RQ” to be added to the Proper Shipping Name and to the package labels. For example, “Paint Class 3 UN 1263 PG II,” becomes “RQ Paint Class 3 UN 1263 PG II.” This “RQ” is required to be indicated on any shipment traveling by any mode of transport, and it is reflected in all transport modes of DGControl.
