Regulatory Affairs
November 14, 2019

The TSSA circulated a draft Advisory – Training Requirements for Refueling Propane Powered Vehicles for the Fuels Industry Certificates Regulation (O. Reg.215/01, amended July 2019) to Risk Reduction Group members for comment on October 9, 2019. The Advisory outlines prescriptive requirements for training to fuel propane-powered vehicles, contrary to clause 55 (6) of the recently amended Regulation. The CPA believes this Advisory is unnecessary and negates the revised regulations for the Fuels Industry Certificates Regulation, which exempts personnel at propane cardlock/keylock facilities from holding a Propane Plant Operator certificate or maintaining a record of training to fuel a propane-powered vehicle.

On November 4, 2019, the TSSA circulated a package of proposed revised Risk and Safety Management Plan L1 and L2 renewal application forms to Propane Advisory Council and Risk Reduction Group members. Industry input is required as soon as possible as the TSSA is planning to implement these changes effective December 1, 2019
