1  Scope

1.1

This Code applies to

(a)   the installation, servicing, and repair of propane fuel system components and containers on motor vehicles for the provision of motive power; and

(b)   the installation of containers, on motor vehicles such as recreational vehicles, outdoor food service units, and wash-mobiles when propane is to be used for fuel purposes (other than motive power).

Note: Motor vehicles include when propane is used as an engine fuel in other than highway vehicles such as ice resurfacing machines, lift trucks, lawnmowers, etc.

1.2  

This Code does not apply to

(a)   vehicles qualified under the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations*;

(b)   propane used on boats; and

(c)   the installation of appliances.

*For confirmation of CMVSS compliance, you may contact the vehicle manufacturer.

1.3  

Where the term “propane” is used, the requirements of this Code include, and apply equally to, any material that is composed predominantly of any of the following hydrocarbons or a mixture of them: propane, propylene, butane (normal butane or isobutane), and butylenes.

1.4  

This Code and any Standards referenced in it do not make or imply any assurance or guarantee with respect to the life expectancy, durability, or operating performance of equipment and materials referenced in the Code.

1.5  

The values shown are in SI (metric) units.  The Code contains yard/pound equivalents so the code may be used in these units also.  The conversion of yard/pound to SI is as per Table G.1 Metric Conversions.  All pressures are gauge unless otherwise noted

1.6  

In this Code, unless approved otherwise by the authority having jurisdiction, “shall” indicates a mandatory requirement; “should” indicates a recommendation or that which is advised but not mandatory; and “may” indicates an advisory or optional statement. Notes to the text do not include mandatory or alternative requirements. The purpose of a note is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material that is not properly a part of this Code. Notes to figures and tables, however, are considered part of the figure or table and may be written as mandatory requirements. Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

Existing triangles need to be removed and new ones added

1 Scope

1.1

The requirements of this Standard apply to materials, constructions, and testing of tree-retardant cross-linked polyethylene and ethylene propylene rubber-insulated single conductor or triplexed primary shielded and concentric neutral power cables rated 15 to [AP1] 46 kV that are used for the transmission and distribution of electrical energy.

The products covered by this Standard are suitable for direct burial or installation in ducts in both wet and dry locations and where cable will be exposed to sunlight.

1.2

This Standard specifies the requirements for shielded and concentric neutral cable intended primarily for operation by electric utilities.

Note: The operation of cables complying with this Standard by other than an electric utility can be subject to additional requirements by the electrical inspection authority having jurisdiction.

1.3

In CSA Standards, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard; and “can” is used to express possibility or capability. Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material. Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements. Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.4

The values given in SI (metric) units are the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

 [AP1]At M22 the scope was changed to include 5-48 kV range. At M23 this decision was reversed because E. Wiebe explained the intent of historically evolving C68.3 into C68.5 and C68.10.

Scope

This document introduces the second edition of a guideline for community decision makers and geotechnical engineers with roles in planning, designing, developing, or managing community infrastructure in permafrost regions. It concerns structures that require foundations. It is not a design text book for building in permafrost regions. It is intended to equip community decision makers with the ability to ensure that the impacts of climate change on permafrost are considered during the siting, design, and management of new community infrastructure. The text has been revised to reflect changes in scenarios of future climate and new building standards that have become available since the first edition was published in 2010.
