Question:

When can the shipping name or the hazardous material identification number be abbreviated on the shipping paper?

A Only if regulations specifically authorize the shipper to do it
Explaination

The shipper may not abbreviate a hazardous material identification number, hazard class, or shipping name of a hazardous material unless the regulations specifically authorize it. Abbrevations might make it harder to identify the material correctly, which could be dangerous.
