RemOil Wipes in pop-up containers may be classed as Division 4.1 without testing, but remain dangerous goods, per the Special Provision 47:
SP47: Mixtures of solids that are not subject to this subchapter and flammable liquids may be transported under this entry without first applying the classification criteria of Division 4.1, provided there is no free liquid visible at the time the material is loaded or at the time the packaging or transport unit is closed. Except when the liquids are fully absorbed in solid material contained in sealed bags, for single packagings, each packaging must correspond to a design type that has passed a leakproofness test at the Packing Group II level. Small inner packagings consisting of sealed packets and articles containing less than 10 mL of a Class 3 liquid in Packing Group II or III absorbed onto a solid material are not subject to this subchapter provided there is no free liquid in the packet or article.
This is also true in the IMDG, Special Provision 216:
SP216: Mixtures of solids which are not subject to the provisions of this Code and flammable liquids may be transported under this entry without first applying the classification criteria of class 4.1, provided there is no free liquid visible at the time the substance is loaded or at the time the packaging or cargo transport unit is closed. Each cargo transport unit shall be leakproof when used as a bulk container. Sealed packets and articles containing less than 10 mL of a packing group II or III flammable liquid absorbed into a solid material are not subject to the provisions of this Code provided there is no free liquid in the packet or article.

- Must be packed upright, packed to prevent shifting, in securely-closed strong outside packagings; no specification testing is required.
- The inner packages are limited to 1 kg (2.2 pounds) net each, and the maximum gross weight of the outer package is limited to 30 kg (66 pounds). There is no limit on the number of packages in a shipment.

SHIPPING PAPER REQUIREMENTS
This is the only difference between LQ Ground and Vessel – documentation is required. The difference in the document between LQ and not LQ is the addition of “LTD QTY” at the end of the description.

Limited quantity packages containing RemOil Wipes must display the limited quantity marking on one side.
In addition, each carton may have to be marked with the consignor’s or the consignee’s name and address, see 49 CFR §172.301(d) for exceptions. No UN number or proper shipping name is required.
* Per 49 CFR §172.301(d), the package must be marked with the consignor or consignee’s name and address unless the package is:
(1) Transported by highway only and will not be transferred from one carrier to the other;
(2) Part of a carload lot, truckload lot or freight container load, and the entire contents of the rail car, truck or freight container are shipped from one consignor to one consignee.
The “OVERPACK” marking is only required if the limited quantity marking is not visible, in which case the “Limited Quantity” and “overpack” stickers are required on only one side of the pallet or overpack box.
Remington policy is to apply the overpack and LQ stickers to all pallets, regardless of visibility of product underneath. The Overpack sticker can be replaced by a sheet of paper or label that says “OVERPACK” in 1/2″ letters or bigger, e.g. on a paper list of goods applied to the overpack.
