Remarks:
When put on the market gases have to be classified as ‘Gases under pressure’, in one of the groups compressed gas, liquefied gas, refrigerated liquefied gas or dissolved gas. The group depends on the physical state in which the gas is packaged and therefore has to be assigned case by case. The concentration limits for gaseous mixtures are expressed as volume per volume percentage.
