This final rule also adopts a revised definition of ``commercial prerinse spray valve,'' clarifies the test procedure for products with multiple spray settings, establishes rounding requirements for flow rate and spray force measurements, and removes irrelevant portions of statistical methods for certification, compliance, and enforcement.
