The European Aerosol Federation (FEA) and the Household & Commercial Products Association (HCPA) submitted a formal proposal to the United Nations Sub-Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods (UNSCETDG) to increase the maximum allowed internal pressure for aerosols at 50 degrees Celsius in the UN Model Regulations. This proposal maintains the same safety margins for aerosol products with the proposed higher pressures.

This proposal will be discussed at the next UNSCETDG session on July 1-5.

Please contact Nicholas Georges, Director, Scientific & International Affairs, at for additional comments or questions.
