|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
|ICS Code (Thermal and sound insulating materials):||91.100.60|
This classification identifies potential concerns and effects that could result from direct contact with thermal insulation materials and accessories, or be caused by indirect action of events such as aging, fire, or physical disturbance.
Intent of Classification:
It is the intent of this classification to alert others to potential concerns, effects, hazards, or risk.
It is not the intent of this classification to establish the degree of risk or hazard or limiting values of potential hazards.
It is not the intent of this classification to establish or recommend methods or markings to reduce or mitigate the potential; however, it is recognized that correct procedures and precautionary measures can substantially reduce or eliminate some of the potential concerns, effects, hazards, or risks.
NOTE 1-See Appendix X1 for commentary.
This classification recognizes the responsibility of producers and users, as appropriate, to: (1) provide information on known effects or hazards, (2) advise on established safety and health practices, and (3) determine applicable regulatory requirements.
This classification does not address the health and safety concerns of thermal insulation materials and accessories during manufacture.
Omission of an item from this classification does not imply an absence of potential concerns or effects.
There is no importance in the order of listing.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
