Effective December 11, 2015, Saskatchewan Cabinet approved two amendments to the Gas Inspection Regulations. The maximum penalty that may be imposed for performing gas installation work without a permit (section 13.1) increased from $250 to $2500 for each item of work performed without a permit.
SaskPower also adopted the following documents (section16(1)) as standards for the installation of equipment under specific circumstances. The additions include: CSA-B149.1-15: Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code; CSA-B149.2-15: Propane Storage and Handling Code; CSA-149.6-15: Code for Biogas Generation and Utilization; CSA-B108-14: Compressed Natural Gas Fuelling Stations Installation Code; CSA-B149.3-15: Code for the Field Approval of Fuel-Related Com-ponents on Appliances and Equipment; CAN/BNQ/1784-000/2007: Canadian Hydrogen Installation Code; and CSA-B149.5-15: Installation Code for Propane Fuel Systems and Containers on Motor Vehicles.
As previously announced in Bulletin 01-2015, the Saskatchewan adoption of the 2015 CSA B149.1, CSA B149.2 and CSA B149.3 gas codes will be enforced on permits dated on or after January 1, 2016.
