LV Energy CSA Compliance and Certification
Do your contractors meet federal standards?
Originally published in 1958 as a standard for burner management, but not a legal requirement by industry, B149 has evolved and as of January 1, 2015, it has become a part of the gas safety regulations included in the Alberta Safety Codes Act, now making it enforceable by law.“As of January 1, 2020, all industries that use gas-fired appliances in their operations must comply with the B149 code that is aimed at the safe operation of gas/propane fired equipment.”
It’s important to know:
- Equipment must be approved by an agency accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (i.e. Enefen)
- Old variances have expired (VAR-GAS-04-04 or VAR-GAS-05-05)
- All gas-fired equipment must be brought up to code by Jan 1, 2020.
- There will be no grandfathering in old systems.
What are you willing to risk?
As soon as any uncertified heater is on your location you are liable. Fines starting at $100,000 are in place for operating non-compliant equipment, and that’s without an incident!
What does the CSA stamp mean?
The CSA registered mark shows that a product has been independently tested and certified to meet recognized standards for safety or performance. This mark ensures that the equipment has been designed and built to the most stringent of standards. Then, rigorously tested to ensure it functions properly and reliably in all conditions.
