We are trying to gather an interpretation of how # Level 1 aerosol alcohol based hand sanitizer cans meet compliance / fit into the code - NFPA 101 Life Safety Code 18.3.2.6, specifically (11) Operation of the dispenser shall comply with the following criteria:
(a)  The dispenser shall not release its contents except when the dispenser is activated, either manually or automatically by touch-free activation.
(b)  Any activation of the dispenser shall occur only when an object is placed within 4 in. (100mm) of the sensing device.
(c) An object placed within the activation zone and left in place shall not cause more than one activation.
(d)  The dispenser shall not dispense more solution that the amount required for hand hygiene consistent with label instructions.
(e)  The dispenser shall be designed, constructed, and operated in a a manner that ensure that accidental or malicious activation of the dispensing device is minimized.
(f)  The dispenser shall be tested in accordance with the manufacturer's care and use instructions each time a new refill is installed.
