CAAR would like to remind all members that Temporary Certificate TH 0653.1 is no longer valid as of June 30. The certificate granted relief from three-year hydrostatic tank testing, as required by the CSA B620/B622-14 Standards. 

CAAR members and their clients must now ensure hydrostatic testing is completed on three-year tanks per B620/B622-14 to remain in compliance. CAAR is proud to have secured relief from hydrostatic testing over the spring season and now urges members to take every action to remain in compliance going forward.

“Securing a Temporary Certificate for our members was a great example of how CAAR represents the needs of retailers in conversations with regulators,” says Mitch Rezansoff, Executive Director of CAAR. “CAAR will continue working to ensure that the demands put on retailers by regulations are reasonable. Following the expiration of the Temporary Certificate, we remind all members that they must follow the Standards to remain in compliance.”

Along with completing hydrostatic testing, CAAR stresses the importance of meeting increased annual visual inspection requirements under the Standards. Keep an eye out for the August 2018 issue of The Communicator to learn how your retail can benefit from becoming a Certified Transport Canada Visual Inspection Facility.
