Scope

This Standard applies to the management of solid waste management facilities, including the evaluation, planning, design, implementation, monitoring, and maintenance of solid waste pollution risk management strategies and mitigation measures for new and existing infrastructure in northern communities. This Standard provides

an outline of procedures for conducting an overall risk assessment, including infrastructure vulnerability;

factors to be considered in land use and infrastructure planning;

an overview of the typical drivers of natural and human-made hazards to which this Standard is applicable, including climate change;

procedures for planning, siting, designing, constructing, operating, inspecting, monitoring, and maintaining solid waste management facilities as well as mitigation measures as applicable;

closure and decommissioning requirements and best practices;

post-closure inspection, monitoring, maintenance and management;

emergency response and contingency planning protocols for addressing failures or imminent failures in mitigations implemented to protect human health and the environment;

a framework for community-based processes for addressing solid waste issues, human health and environmental considerations; and

background information and relevant reference material.

Compliance with this Standard will allow users to demonstrate that the design and implementation of risk management strategies and mitigation measures take into consideration, and are compatible with, the preservation of permafrost or reduction of the disruptive effects of permafrost thaw. Because the performance of permafrost is often integral to the success of risk management strategies intended to protect human health and the environment at solid waste management facilities, compliance with this Standard will help mitigate impacts to infrastructure, and the environment within and surrounding the project site.

Permafrost is not the only challenge faced by those who design and operate waste management facilities in the North, however. Often, the remote nature of the communities mean that it is hard to hire and retain staff to manage the complex activities that underlie the safe operation of modern waste management sites. Communities may find it expensive to undertake many of the measures described in the Standard. Those who embark on the development and operation of waste management facilities must be confident that they can access the monetary and non-monetary resources that the site will require throughout a facility life that may span several decades.

Users

This Standard is intended for use in Yukon Territory, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, and Nunavik, but other northern and remote jurisdictions may wish to adopt it as well. Users are intended to include

the owners and operators of solid waste management facilities that can be affected by natural or human-made hazards;

the owners and operators of other community infrastructure for which the safe operation of the solid waste management facility is important;

contract administrators who oversee a solid waste management facility project with risk management or mitigation components;

site investigators (scientists and engineers) who evaluate the site conditions (existing and projected) and estimate the risks related to the development of the project;

design professionals and reviewers (consulting engineers, and territorial, provincial, or regional technical services staff) who design, assess and approve, and oversee the implementation of engineering-based solutions;

contractors working on solid waste management facilities;

regulatory authorities, such as land and water boards and review boards;

compliance authorities, such as qualified building inspectors and qualified environmental inspectors;

land use planners and community planning officials;

educators, for the purposes of knowledge transfer; and

others with a vested interest in risk management or mitigative elements of solid waste management infrastructure planning and/or construction projects, design and construction, and inspection of mitigation measures and plan implementation.

Application

General

The requirements provided in this Standard are intended to address risks to:

closed, existing or newly proposed solid waste management facilities, which might be exposed to natural and other hazards now or in the future; and

human health and the environment, due to closed, existing or newly proposed solid waste management facilities.

 

This Standard also applies where risk management measures are required by contract, permit, regulation, or other approval. The application of the Standard begins with an overall risk assessment and evaluation of infrastructure vulnerability phases of a project. The evaluation of risks associated with natural hazards includes the potential impacts of climate change that are to be considered in the planning, siting, design, construction, operations, closure, and post-closure of a MSW site. The application of the Standard continues throughout the lifespan of the infrastructure project or strategic planning cycles, including planning, siting, construction, operation and maintenance, and decommissioning, or until residual risk levels are deemed acceptable.

Types of infrastructure

This Standard applies to the evaluation, planning and design, implementation, as well as monitoring and maintenance of solid waste management facilities as well as mitigation measures during all phases of planning, design, construction, service life and decommissioning of

solid waste management sites with segregated categories of waste;

landfills;

transfer stations;

public drop-off facilities;

composting facilities;

incinerators; and

expansions of any of these types of facilities or structures.

Scope:

This part of ISO/IEC 62990 specifies general requirements for design, function and performance, and describes the test methods that apply to portable, transportable, and fixed equipment for the detection and concentration measurement of toxic gases and vapours in workplace atmospheres and other industrial and commercial applications.

This document is applicable to continuously sensing equipment whose primary purpose is to provide an indication, alarm and/or other output function the purpose of which is to indicate the presence of a toxic gas or vapour in the atmosphere and in some cases to  initiate automatic or manual protective action(s). It is applicable to equipment in which the sensor generates an electrical signal when gas is present.

This document applies to two types of equipment:

• Type HM (Health Monitoring) ‘occupational exposure’ equipment:

For occupational exposure measurement, the performance requirements are focused on uncertainty of measurement of gas concentrations in the region of Occupational Exposure Limit Values (OELV). The upperlimit of measurement will be defined by the manufacturer in accordance with 4.2.1.

• Type SM (Safety Monitoring) ‘general gas detection’ equipment:
For general gas detection applications (e.g. safety warning, leak detection),  the performance requirements are focused on alarm signalling. The upper limit of measurement will be defined by the manufacturer according to the intended use of the equipment.

In general, the requirements for accuracy will be higher for Type HM equipment than for Type SM equipment. The same equipment may meet the requirements of both Type HM and Type SM.

For equipment used for sensing the presence of multiple gases this document applies only to the detection of toxic gas or vapour.

This document is not applicable to equipment:

– with samplers and concentrators such as sorbents or paper tape having an irreversible indication;
–  used for the measurement of gases and vapours related to the risk of explosion;
–  used for the measurement of oxygen;
–  used only in laboratories for analysis or measurement;
–  used only for process measurement purposes;
–  used in the domestic environment;
–  used in environmental air pollution monitoring;
–  used for open-path (line of sight) area gas measurement;
–   used for ventilation control in car parks or tunnels.

Scope:
This part of IEC 61000 is concerned with the limitation of voltage fluctuations and flicker impressed on the public low-voltage system. It specifies limits of voltage changes which may be produced by an equipment tested under specified conditions and gives guidance on methods of assessment. This part of IEC 61000 is applicable to electrical and electronic equipment having an input current equal to or less than 16 A per phase, intended to be connected to public low-voltage distribution systems of between 220 V and 250 V
line to neutral at 50 Hz, and not subject to conditional connection. Equipment which does not comply with
the limits of this part of IEC 61000 when tested with the reference impedance Zref of 6.4, and which
therefore cannot be declared compliant with this part, may be retested or evaluated to show conformity with IEC 61000-3-11. Part 3-11 is applicable to equipment with rated input current ≤ 75 A per phase and
subject to conditional connection. The tests according to this part are type tests. Particular test  conditions are given in Annex A and the test circuit is shown in Figure 1.

NOTE 1 The limits in this standard relate to the voltage changes experienced by consumers connected at the interface between the public supply low-voltage network and the equipment user’s installation. Consequently, if the actual impedance of the supply at the supply terminals of equipment connected within the equipment user’s installation exceeds the test impedance, it is possible that supply disturbance exceeding the limits could occur.

NOTE 2 The limits in this standard are based mainly on the subjective severity of flicker imposed on the light from 230 V 60 W coiled-coil filament lamps by fluctuations of the supply voltage. For systems with nominal voltage less than 220 V line to neutral and/or frequency of 60 Hz, the limits and reference circuit values are under consideration

Scope:
This part of IEC 61000 is concerned with the emission of voltage changes, voltage fluctuations and flicker produced by equipment and impressed on the public low-voltage supply system. It specifies the limits of voltage changes produced by equipment tested under specified conditions. This document is primarily applicable to electrical and electronic equipment having a rated input current from 16 A up to and including 75 A, which is intended to be connected to public low-voltage distribution systems having nominal system voltages of between 220 V and 250 V, line-to-neutral at 50 Hz, and which is subject to conditional connection. This document is also applicable to equipment within the scope of IEC 61000-3-3 that does not meet the limits when tested or evaluated with reference impedance Zref and is therefore subject to
conditional connection.

Equipment which meets the requirements of IEC 61000-3-3 is excluded from this part of IEC 61000.

Equipment tests made in accordance with this document are type tests.

NOTE 1 The flicker limits specified in this document, being the same as those in IEC 61000-3-3, are based on the subjective severity of the flicker imposed on the light from 230 V/60 W coiled-coil filament lamps 

when subjected to fluctuations of the supply voltage. For systems with nominal voltages less than 220 V,
line-to-neutral and/or frequency of 60 Hz, the limits and reference circuit values are under consideration.

NOTE 2 The limits in this document relate to the voltage changes experienced by consumers connected at the interface between the public supply low-voltage network and the equipment user’s installation.
Therefore, it cannot be guaranteed that the users of equipment compliant with this standard will not experience supply disturbance within their own installation due to the operation of this equipment alone, as the impedance at the point of connection of the equipment to the supply within the installation can have an impedance greater than the maximum permissible impedance as determined by the procedures in this document.
