Training Requirements for Filling Propane-powered Vehicles at Cardlock/keylock Facilities and Private Outlets

Regulation Number(s):
O. Reg. 215/01
Bill or Act:
Technical Standards and Safety Act, 2000
Summary of Decision:
The proposed amendments were approved on May 30, 2019.

This decision amends the Fuel Industry Certificates regulation under the Technical Standards and Safety Act, 2000 to simplify training requirements for individuals who refuel propane-powered vehicles at cardlock/keylock facilities and private outlets. It exempts those individuals from the requirement to hold a propane plant operator (PPO) certificate or record of training under the regulation, provided that certain conditions are met. Specifically, the authorization holder for the facility must provide annual and appropriate training to the person and must keep a record of the training. The Technical Standards and Safety Authority will inspect these records as part of propane site inspections. These changes come into effect on July 1, 2019.
Analysis of Regulatory Impact:
This proposal will not result in administrative costs to business.

Summary of Proposal:
The Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS) and the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) are proposing an exemption - under the Fuel Industry Certificates regulation (O. Reg. 215/01) of the Technical Standards and Safety Act, 2000 - for individuals who refuel propane-powered vehicles at cardlock/keylock facilities and private outlets from the requirement to hold a propane plant operator (PPO) certificate or record of training under the regulation. These facilities are not used by the general public. This approach reduces burden while maintaining public safety. The exemption would require that the authorization holder for the facility provides appropriate training and keeps a record of the training.
