Calgary Branch PD Evening: Variances, Application, and Updates of Gas Code Regulation

5:30 pm - 8:45 pm

Register by December 1, 2019

The 2020 versions of the B149 gas codes adopted by regulation in Alberta are anticipated for publication on or about January 2020. In Alberta, automatic code adoption has been established for the gas codes, and they are anticipated for enforcement approximately 12 months from the date of publication.

There have been significant changes in the codes that have involved substantial relocation and editing of all of the referenced codes. Additions to the code primarily address challenges that involve new technologies, complex projects, and new ways of applying codes within residential, commercial, and industrial installations. There has also been the introduction of some objective based processes through annexes.

Additional challenges that involve the required approval of uncertified gas-fired equipment through the use of certification bodies, inspection bodies, and now engineers with the authentication variance issued July 2019 will be discussed.
