1.1 These requirements cover metal receptacles intended primarily for temporary, indoor storage of waste paper and other similar materials. These containers are intended to be emptied regularly and their contents disposed of.
1.2 These requirements cover waste paper containers intended for use as complete assemblies, consisting of a container body and a head or cover. They may be provided with metal or nonmetallic internal liners. They are designed to:
a) Limit the external surface temperatures of the container bottom should their contents become ignited;
b) Extinguish the fire; and
c) Contain the contents without contributing fuel to the fire.
1.3 A product that contains features, characteristics, components, materials, or systems new or different from those covered by the requirements in this standard, and that involves a risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons shall be evaluated using the appropriate additional component and end-product requirements as determined necessary to maintain the acceptable level of safety as originally anticipated by the intent of this standard. A product whose features, characteristics, components, materials, or systems conflict with specific requirements or provisions of this standard cannot be judged to comply with this standard. Where considered appropriate, revision of requirements shall be proposed and adopted in conformance with the methods employed for development, revision, and implementation of this standard.
