Every month RAE produces a short summary of important changes to regulations and codes that may impact our clients. The following are the updates from the month of November:
ABSA released an Information Bulletin regarding an updated Gas Safety Information Bulletin STANDATA issued by Alberta Municipal Affairs. This bulletin clarifies the roles of the authorities having jurisdiction for fuel gas pressure piping in plants (i.e. fuel gas piping subject to the Pressure Equipment Safety Regulation vs. the Gas Code Regulation).
ABSA released an updated Information Bulletin that supersedes a previously issued ABSA bulletin IB11-016 issued on September 23, 2011. This bulletin was updated to the reference the new STANDATA issued by Alberta Municipal Affairs for fuel gas pressure piping in plants (from the above bulletin IB15-013). However, this bulletin may be worth re-visiting, as it also addresses the Gas Safety Information Bulletins (from September 2011) for Liquefied Petroleum Gas Storage Vessel Installation and Propane Storage Tanks designed for 200 psig.
