CSA Group, a Canadian standards development organization and a global provider of testing and certification services, has announced a new edition of CSA B149.1: Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code.
Among other things, B149.1 applies to the installation of vehicle-refueling appliances and associated equipment meeting the requirements of a general-purpose appliance to fill a natural-gas-fueled vehicle.
CSA Group has also released a new edition of CSA B149.2-15: Propane Storage and Handling Code, noting that the pair of updated standards have been reviewed by regulatory authorities across Canada and are expected to be adopted into law in every Canadian province and territory.
‘CSA Group has worked to make our standards more relevant and user friendly,’ says Gianluca Arcari, executive director of standards and vice president of CSA Group. ‘We've listened to the feedback from our stakeholders and incorporated important updates to help ensure the codes are valuable tools in the industry.’
