Aerosol chemical agents have been around for many years. The impact of the use of these chemical agents wasn't significant until 1976 . OC has proven to be more effective than chemicals such as CS or CN, and as a result, numerous companies now manufacture OC aerosol sprays.The OC program is not brand specific and addresses the proper use of all OC products.
OC is restricted to certain law enforcement agencies in Australia and training is only available to those agencies. Private security and individuals are prohibited from receiving this training.
