UPDATE: TSSA consultation results in recategorization of risk for orders under Fuels Safety Act

Print this Article

As part of its ongoing review and reassessment of orders issued under the Fuels Safety Act, regulations related to propane under the Act, and CSA codes 149.1 and 149.2, the Technical Standards and Safety Authority recently circulated a report in May 2019 to Risk Reduction Group members containing reassessments to 24 orders, based on issue frequency and risk.

As a result of this exercise, the risk scores for 11 of the 24 areas identified were adjusted to reflect lower risk – lower risk should result in less frequent inspections. The TSSA sought industry input into these reassessments, which will be reflected in revised inspection schedules.

The CPA has facilitated industry input into TSSA initiatives such as reassessment reports by hosting discussions and circulating relevant documents to Ontario members and providing feedback to the regulator. The Association will keep members up-to-date with TSSA’s Revised Propane Orders Reassessment Report, which is being updated regularly.
