The Plastic Aerosol Research Group (PARG), coordinated by the Research & Regulatory Management Council (RMMC), an affiliate of CSPA, developed the voluntary standard test method related to the development and manufacturing of aerosol products in plastic containers, also known as “plastic aerosol.”  Specifically, this method is intended to provide information on conducting evaluations to address regulatory requirements and identifying appropriate measurements during the development and manufacturing of aerosol products in plastic containers.  In response to requests for an international standard, CSPA is including the standard as an appendix to the CSPA Aerosol Guide and is making the standard available for sale to interested parties.
