ASTM WK24711

    Revision of F976 - 08 Standard Specification for Portable Kerosene and Diesel Containers for Consumer Use

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F15.10 | Committee F15 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The specification needs to add a definition of the closure to clarify exactly what it is and what it does, as it is used frequent throughout the document - and may be currently misinterpreted for compliance with construction or performance requirements. The specification needs to add information on sample preparation details prior to testing that address expected spout position(s) and consumer use, plus clarify a common pass/fail test method for closures. Clarifications necessary to identify what position the container spout must be in during testing for requirements that currently do not provide these details.
