AS 18.74.040. Alternative Test Methods. [Effective August 1, 2008]..
- (a) If the state fire marshal determines that cigarettes cannot be tested by a test method established in AS 18.74.030 (a), a manufacturer of the cigarettes shall propose an
alternative test method and performance standard for the cigarettes to the state fire marshal. On approval of the proposed test method
and a determination by the state fire marshal that the performance standard proposed by the manufacturer is equivalent to the
performance standard prescribed by AS 18.74.030(d), the manufacturer may employ the proposed alternative test
method and performance standard to certify the cigarette under AS 18.74.080.
- (b) Unless the state fire marshal demonstrates a reasonable basis why the alternative test method should not be
accepted under this chapter, the state fire marshal shall authorize a manufacturer to use an alternative test method and performance
standard to certify cigarettes for sale in this state if the state fire marshal
- (1) determines that another state has enacted reduced cigarette ignition propensity standards that include a
test method and performance standard that are the same as those contained in this chapter; and
- (2) finds that the officials responsible for implementing those requirements have approved a proposed
alternative test method and performance standard for particular cigarettes proposed by a manufacturer as meeting the fire safety
standards of that state's law under a legal provision comparable to this section.
- (c) All other applicable requirements of this chapter apply to the manufacturer of the cigarettes tested under this section.
