The Technical Standards and Safety Authority’s (TSSA) Director’s Public Safety Order FS-072-06 (R8), regarding Natural Draft Boilers expired on December 1, 2012, when it was replaced by the Gaseous Fuels Code Adoption Document. The Gaseous Fuels Code Adoption Document now includes this requirement on an ongoing basis. This Safety Order required all G1, G2, G3, and GUT certification holders performing service, maintenance and/or emergency response work to perform a CO check in the boiler’s flue and take action when the level is above 100 PPM. Additionally, the document adopts the following codes with an effective date of December 1, 2012: Canadian Standards Associations (CSA) B149.1-10 Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code with Ontario amendments; TSSA-FA-2012 Field Approval Code; CAN/BNQ 1784-000/2007 Canadian Hydrogen Installation Code with Ontario Amendments; and TSSA-DLB-2012 Digester, Landfill and Biogas Approval Code.
