Regulatory Affairs
May 9, 2019

On May 2, 2019, eight Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) staff and over 30 members of the CPA attended a successful demonstration of the newest auto propane fuelling technology in Whitby, Ontario.

Transport Canada has updated Equivalency Certificate SU 11248 (Ren. 5). The previous Equivalency Certificate is hereby revoked and superseded by the new Equivalency Certificate.

Since 2008, Ontario Regulation 211/01 has required Risk and Safety Management Plans (RSMPs) for all Ontario propane facilities that are a retail outlet, filling plant, cardlock/keylock, private outlet or container refill centre.

The CPA considers the proposed amendment to exempt individuals who refuel propane-powered vehicles at cardlock/keylock facilities and private outlets from the requirement to hold a propane plant operator certificate or record of training  an important first step.

The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Directorate is pleased to announce the publication of the video: Responding to Railcar Incidents Involving Flammable Liquids. You can watch the video by clicking on the picture below or you will find it on their website in the following sections: Video GalleryWhat's New and Safety Awareness Kit for First Responders.
