Flash point

Flash point has a few different definitions, depending on the regulations. Canada’s CCCR, 2001 regulations define it as follows:

“Flash point means the minimum temperature at which a substance gives off a vapour in sufficient concentration to ignite under test conditions.”

Whereas the GHS purple book (6th edition) defines it as follows:

“Flash point means the lowest temperature (corrected to a standard pressure of 101.3 kPa) at which the application of an ignition source causes the vapours of a liquid to ignite under specified test conditions.”

Canada’s Hazardous Products Regulations (Canada’s GHS implementation) uses a similar definition:

“Flash point means the lowest temperature, corrected to the standard pressure of 101.3 kPa, at which the application of an ignition source causes the vapours of a liquid to ignite.”

Testimonial

I found the people at Nexreg very helpful when it came to addressing my Canadian product labelling needs. They were always readily available to answer questions and concerns. I'm very glad to have the Nexreg people in my corner when dealing with Canadian compliancy regulations.
