|Significance and Use|
This specification is intended for use in reducing the normal exposure to nitrosamines.
This specification refers only by way of example to the eight volatile N-nitrosamines identified below:
1.1 This specification applies to the nitrosamine content of rubber used in the manufacture of nipples for infant pacifiers.
1.2 This specification does not apply to plastic nipples (on pacifiers).
1.3 The purpose of this specification is to establish a maximum level of allowed nitrosamines in rubber nipples and to outline a uniform testing method to determine such level.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.5 The following precautionary statement pertains only to the test method portions, Sections 5, and Appendix X4 of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
