No. The container and containment regulations exempt certain container types, including aerosol cans, from the identification of container type and reuse statements in 40 CFR 156.140(a)(1) and (a)(2). The container types that are exempt from these statements are listed in 40 CFR 156.140(a)(5).
The labels of containers listed in 156.140(a)(5) are not exempt, however, from the recycle/recondition statement or batch code requirement in 40 CFR 156.140(a)(3) and (a)(4). Additionally, the labels of these containers are not exempt from the requirement to have residue removal instructions (40 CFR 156.146) unless the product is exempted by 40 CFR 156.144; that is, unless the product is for household/residential use, a pesticidal article, a gas or distributed or sold only in a transport vehicle. However, registrants may request a modification to or exemption from the requirements for a recycle/recondition statement, batch code or residue removal instructions.
