Vancouver, BC—Technical Safety BC wants to hear from the public regarding the potential impacts of the latest editions of the CSA B149 gas code series. As part of the series, there will be updates concerning CSA Z662 oil and gas systems standard and the BNQ-1784 Canadian hydrogen installation code for adoption in British Columbia. The open consultation will be open from Aug. 10 to Sept. 14.
Gas contractors and gasfitters commonly use the CSA B149.1 for equipment installation and CSA B149.3 for approvals. The changes in the new code would include requiring a permitting process for stationary engines, new requirements for regulators and overpressure protection, and a newly consolidated annex for requirements from mobile food trucks.
