It replaces the previous edition, published in 2003 with the same title, but under the designation CAN/CSA-Z10535 (adopted ISO 10535:1998).
This Standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
