Overview

In order to align the technical requirements of Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) intended for the North American market, CSA Group has published standards whose content has been harmonized for Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. This new harmonized standard contains the construction and performance requirements that are applied to a device that is intended to become an integral part of an overall device or charging system.

This standard works in conjunction with C22.2 NO. 281.1-12 - Standard for Safety for Personnel Protection Systems for Electric Vehicle (EV) Supply Circuits: General Requirements.

This Standard specifies requirements and guidance for the aging management (AM) of nuclear power plants (NPPs). Specifically, this Standard addresses the AM of

a) structures, systems and components (SSCs) that are important to safety; and

b) SSCs that, in the case of failure, would prevent SSCs important to safety from performing their safety function.

Note: Other nuclear facilities may apply this Standard using a graded approach commensurate with risk.

1.1

This Standard applies to gas hose connectors (See Clause 3 Definitions), hereinafter referred to as connectors. They are conduits for conveying gas and depend for gas-tightness on the wall structure of the hose material. Such connectors are:

a) newly produced and constructed entirely of new, unused parts and materials; and

b) equipped with a fitting at each end provided with standard taper pipe threads.

1.2

Connectors covered by this Standard are intended for:

a) connection of portable outdoor gas-fired appliances to the gas supply piping;

b) use in unconcealed outdoor locations;

c) use only in locations where they will not be likely to be subject to excessive temperatures [above 200°F (93.5 °C)];

d) use with natural gas, manufactured gas, mixed gases, propane and LP gas-air mixtures; and

e) use on gas piping systems having fuel gas pressures not in excess of 1/2 psi (3.45 kPa).

1.3

All references to psi throughout this Standard are to be considered gauge pressure unless otherwise specified.

1.4

Annex A contains provisions that are unique to Canada.

1.5

Clause 2 contains a list of standards specifically referenced in this Standard and sources from which these reference standards may be obtained.

1.6

This Standard contains SI (Metric) equivalents to the yard/pound quantities, the purpose being to allow the standard to be used in SI (Metric) units. (IEEE/ASTM SI 10 is used as a guide in making metric conversion from yard/pound quantities.) If a value for a measurement and an equivalent value in other units, the first stated is to be regarded as the requirement. The given equivalent value may be approximate. If a value for a measurement and an equivalent value in other units, are both specified as a quoted marking requirement, the first stated unit, or both shall be provided.

1.7

In this Standard, "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; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

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.

This International Standard applies to industrial, scientific and medical electrical equipment operating in the frequency range 0 Hz to 400 GHz and to domestic and similar appliances designed to generate and/or use locally radio-frequency energy.

This standard covers emission requirements related to radio-frequency (RF) disturbances in the frequency range of 9 kHz to 400 GHz. Measurements need only be performed in frequency ranges where limits are specified in Clause 6.

For ISM RF applications in the meaning of the definition found in the ITU Radio Regulations (see Definition 3.13), this standard covers emission requirements related to radio-frequency disturbances in the frequency range of 9 kHz to 18 GHz.

NOTE Emission requirements for induction cooking appliances are specified in CISPR 14-1 [1]1. Requirements for ISM RF lighting equipment and UV irradiators operating at frequencies within the ISM frequency bands defined by the ITU Radio Regulations are contained in this standard.

Equipment covered by other CISPR product and product family emission standards are excluded from the scope of this standard.
