Oxygen drug product labels are governed by 3 different agencies. The FDA because it's a drug product, and the DOT and OSHA because it is considered a Hazardous Material that is in transport (DOT) and in the workplace (OSHA). Each agency is a different government entity that has its own requirements.

GHS created a universal system of standardized pictograms and the hazards associated with each chemical. The new labels have updated warnings and use the pictograms prescribed by OSHA.
Cylinder Valve Questions? Applieds Got Answers! Medical Oxygen cylinders are equipped with either CGA-870 or CGA-540 valves. Each gas and each different type of gas service has a unique connectionassigned to it by the Compressed Gas Association (CGA). This connectionsystem is designed to help reduce mix-ups involving compressed gases. We willexplain the differences between the types of valves. Post Valve Connections: Require a tool of some sort to open the valve. These connections are designed with a pin indexing system. The valve has holesdrilled into it which allow pins installed on equipment designed for that specifictype of service to fall into the holes when the equipment is mated together. Foroxygen service this is a CGA-870 connection. This connection has two holesdrilled below the valve opening which allows the corresponding pins on a pieceof connection equipment to fall directly into the holes. If the equipment doesntmate properly, it wasnt designed for oxygen service. CGA
