This specification establishes nationally recognized construction, performance and marking standards for portable emergency fuel containers intended for attended transport of fuel and for one time use by consumers. It identifies the requirements the PEFCs need to meet, as well as the markings that need to be indicated on the containers. It then indicates the test methods that ensure the quality of the containers, including the stability test, the drop test, and the vent test.
