SU 10120 (Ren. 2)

CONDITIONS

(i) a minimum of 10 aerosol containers, representative of each drawing specified in condition (b) of this certificate, pressurized to 1000 kPa for containers with minimum wall thickness of 0.165 mm or 1100 kPa for containers with minimum wall thickness of 0.18 mm, are subjected to a drop test onto a 45-degree wedge as described in Crown Aerosol Packaging standard operating procedure #MAT-S-158 dated July 2, 2010.

Explanatory Note

This certificate holder has demonstrated that aerosol containers with reduced body wall thicknesses can be used with equivalent safety to that of TC-2P and TC-2Q type aerosol containers. Equivalent safety is provided by limiting the size of aerosol containers, specifying the mechanical property for the material of construction, and employing comprehensive controlled processes for manufacture. This Equivalency Certificate authorizes the manufacture and the use of these aerosol containers under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations.

NOTE

Under Canadian Law, a foreign manufacturer of non-specification means of containment cannot be charged with an offence under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act, 1992 for failure to comply with the conditions of an Equivalency Certificate. However, certain remedies under the Act are available to Transport Canada in this eventuality.

These include:

1. detention of dangerous goods and consequently the means of containment containing them (subsection 17(1));

2. detention of the means of containment whether full or empty

(subsection 17(1));

3. directions not to import the means of containment or to return them to origin (subsection 17(3));

4. inspectors' directions (section 19);

5. directions to importers of the means of containment to issue notices of defective construction or recall (subsection 9(2)); and

6. revocation of the Equivalency Certificate, thereby making any use of the means of containment an offence (subsection 31(6)).

If none of the foregoing are adequate, Protective Directions may be issued to prohibit or to control the use of the cylinders (section 32).
