There are a number of references to schedule 1, section 3 in the [http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/cps-spc/legislation/acts-lois/techni_e.html Proposed Technical Amendments to the Consumer Chemicals and Containers Regulations, 2001].  They are as follows:

* There is an inconsistency between the text and Figures 1 and 2 of the testing apparatus. The height of the internal open space should be 45 cm, as indicated in the figures. (Section 2)
+
* The number of sprays required for pump-spray containers is excessive and time-consuming. For example, it is possible that a test container would need 1200 sprays (not including priming and trial discharges to adjust the flame). As a result, it is conceivable that the product could be used-up before the test is completed.

Without compromising the integrity of the test results, the number of sprays per discharge from a pump-spray container can be reduced from 10 to 3, and the number of discharges can be reduced to that required for pressurized containers. This would reduce the total possible number of sprays from 1200 to 108. (Sections 3 and 4)

* The need to shake the container prior to testing must be clarified. When shaking is called-for, the container should also be shaken between discharges. Hence, it is not necessary to wait 60 seconds between discharges, prior to re-shaking the container. (Sections 3 and 4)
