Proposal details

Liquid Fuels Handling Code (LFHC) Requirements that Would Not be Met:

1.3.1. Equipment installed at a facility or on a highway tank shall be approved and installed in accordance with the requirements of this Code and the manufacturer’s instructions, and shall be appropriate for the service for which it is intended.

 

Why the Code Would Not be Met

Clause 1.3.1 of the Liquid Fuels Handling code requires that equipment be approved to a Canadian standard; however, there is no corresponding Underwriters’ Laboratories of Canada standard.

These retrofit boots will allow the applicant to make repairs to the dispenser sumps without having to excavate and replace the entire sump.

 

Safety Assessment

The retrofit boots have been evaluated by a third-party lab and meet the Underwriters’ Laboratory standard "UL 2447 Outline of Investigation for Containment Sumps, Fittings and Accessories for Fuels".  The retrofit boots have also shown good cold weather performance.

TSSA assesses that there is likely to be no environmental impact should this variance be granted.
