"This standard applies to one type of naphtha fuel suitable for use in catalytic-type heaters and in naphtha pressure-appliances such as stoves, lanterns, heating units and blowtorches. The specified limiting values in this standard are present to allow the use of this naphtha fuel in catalytic heaters. The use of other types of fuel in catalytic heaters such as fuels with a higher boiling point range, higher vapour pressure or higher sulphur concentration could result in poor or hazardous performance. The testing and evaluation of a product against this standard may require the use of materials and/or equipment that could be hazardous. This document does not purport to address all the safety aspects associated with its use. Anyone using this standard has the responsibility to consult the appropriate authorities and to establish appropriate health and safety practices in conjunction with any applicable regulatory requirements prior to its use"--Scope, p. 1.
