While CAAR makes every effort to ensure the Quality Control Manual is consistent to the Canadian Standards Association requirements, retailers and testing facilities registered with Transport Canada are responsible for ensuring they fully comply with all current applicable standards, including B620-09, and where applicable, B622-09. CAAR strongly recommends that facilities acquire copies of these standards and ensure they are fully versed in and compliant to these standards. Copies of the CSA standards may be purchased at

Updates to the NTSP Quality Control Manual will be completed and distributed as soon as possible. However, please refer to B620-09 under section 7.2.10 for all hose assembly marking, inspection and testing requirements, and note the following summary of changes to the manual.
