Propane Operating Permits Consultation

Status: Canceled

This consultation was to clarify the operating permit requirements for the use of propane pressure vessels as described in the Power Engineers, Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Refrigeration Safety Regulation and CAN/CSA B149.2-10.

After considering the feedback we received during preliminary discussions with stakeholders groups, we have decided not to move forward with the proposed program for administering operating permits for propane tanks. This consultation has therefore been canceled.

Please see Directive D-BP-2015-01 for operating permit requirements for propane pressure vessels.
