Introduction to Clean Agents

Standards and Regulations on Clean Agents

US EPA SNAP List

The Significant New Alternatives Program, SNAP, was created up by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to evaluate proposed alternatives to substances suspected of contributing to stratospheric ozone depletion. In this program, a proposed alternative is evaluated in terms of the overall risk to the environment and human health relative to the continued use of the substance suspected of contributing to stratospheric ozone depletion. A proposed alternative is either deemed an acceptable alternative, an acceptable alternative with restrictions or an unacceptable alternative. As part of this program, the U.S. EPA maintains a list of alternatives that have been deemed to be acceptable alternatives to compounds suspected of contributing to stratospheric ozone depletion.

Toxicology studies on the candidate alternative agents are part of the SNAP listing process, and acceptable exposure limits in the context of fire protection are established.
