Codes & Standards - Purchase
The resurgence of the natural gas vehicle market and increase in vehicle conversions influenced CSA Group to create the B109-01 (R2012) - Natural Gas for Vehicles Installation Code document. The safety aspects of fuel system components on original equipment manufactured (OEM) vehicles are governed by federal regulations. Industry needed similar safety requirements for fuel system components that could be used by provincial enforcement authorities for NGV vehicle conversions. This code applies to the installation, servicing and repair requirements of natural gas fuel systems on self-propelled vehicles for provision of motive power for NGV vehicle conversions.
