ICS Code (Barrels. Drums. Canisters): 55.140
scope:

1.1 This specification establishes nationally recognized performance requirements common to both kerosine and diesel portable containers for reuse by the consumer. Only color and marking are differentiated. The test medium specified for chemical resistance is kerosine due to the more aggressive nature of kerosine on elastomers and other materials of construction.

1.2 This specification does not include single-trip pre-packaged containers.

1.3 This standard is not a fire risk assessment standard, or a fire test standard, but a specification for portable kerosine containers for consumer use.

1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 7, of this specification: 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. Additional precautionary information is given in Section 6.
