NCWM Affirms Method of Sale for "Products Sold in Pressurized Containers Using Bag on Valve Technology"
David A. Sefcik
At the 99th NCWM Annual Conference held in Detroit, Michigan, July 13- 17, 2014, the NCWM adopted amended language to clarify Section 10.3. Aerosols and Similar Pressurized Containers, of the Uniform Packaging and Labeling Regulation in NIST Handbook 130, "Uniform Laws and Regulations in the Areas of Legal Merology and Engine Fuel Quality" making it clear that the method of sale applies to aerosols and other self-pressurized containers including those utilizing BOV technology. This amendment supports and further strengthens the requirement that the traditional method of sale for aerosols and other pre-pressurized containers dispensing product under pressure, regardless of technology, must be sold by weight.
