Significance and Use
This practice provides requirements for the handling, transportation, and storage of HFC-23 encountered in distribution through both commercial and military channels. It is intended to ensure that HFC-23 is handled, transported, and stored in such a way its physical property values are not degraded. Transport may be by various means, such as, but not limited to, highway, rail, water, and air.
1.1 This practice covers guidance and direction to suppliers, purchasers, and users in the handling, transportation, and storage of HFC-23.
