9.—(1) A unit load to which these Regulations apply shall be labelled or arranged as follows—
(a)if the same hazard classification code applies to all articles, substances or combinations to which these Regulations apply in the unit load, they shall be arranged so that the label on at least one such article or outer packaging is visible on each vertical face of the load, except that, in the case of a unit load assembled on or in a device with a base or straps, it shall be sufficient if such labels are placed on the base or the straps so that they are as visible as if they were on the load itself;
(b)in any other case, the labels specified in paragraph (2) shall be placed on the base or straps of the device on or in which the unit load is assembled so that they are as visible as if they were on each vertical face of the load, or, if there is no base or straps or it is impracticable to fix the labels there, they may be placed on each vertical face of the load.
(2) The labels referred to in paragraph (1)(b) shall be those appropriate under Regulations 6(1) or (3) or 7, as the case may be, for a combination which has the same hazard classification code as the unit load as a whole except that the label described in paragraph 12 of Schedule 3 need not be shown.
