This practice does not cover fabrication or the installation processes because these are subject to worker safety and health regulations and law. 1.4 The final building product manufacturer or agent is responsible for providing this information and completing this report. 1.5 Units--The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
