Regulatory Affairs

Canadian Propane Association - Association canadienne du propane


The CSA CGA 12.4-M84 (R2018) Standard – Dispensing Devices for Propane Fuel for Highway Vehicles was recently reaffirmed by the CSA. This Standard applies to the mechanical and electrical features of newly manufactured dispensing devices for propane liquid for use as fuel in internal combustion engines where such devices are intended primarily to dispense the liquid directly into the fuel storage tank of the vehicle. A copy of this Standard can be purchased on the CSA Website.

All capped participants (mandatory and voluntary) who were registered in the cap and trade program as of July 3, 2018, must submit a mid-year 2018 report no later than October 1, 2018. The period the report must cover is from January 1 to July 3, 2018.
