CSA Group

Standards development is the foundation of CSA Group. From our initial charter in 1919, we have grown to become the largest standards development organization (SDO) in Canada, with the widest subject area recognition. We also work with other SDOs around the world as a key contributor to international and harmonized standards activities. Our library of more than 3,000 standards and codes address subjects that affect the interests of industry, consumers, regulators and the public at large.

UL’s Proposed National Adoption of Canada for ISO 10377, Standard for Consumer Product Safety – Guidelines for Suppliers

UL was recently contracted by the SCC to facilitate the adoption of ISO 10377 as a National Adoption for Canada.  ISO 10377 is a guideline to assist suppliers in managing consumer product safety issues. As a National Adoption, stakeholders will be asked to identify specific and necessary national differences (if any) from a Canadian perspective with a particular focus on small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to support their needs in identifying, preventing, or responding to real or potential dangers to human health or safety associated with consumer products.

Rather than use a traditional approach for the national adoption process, UL’s work under the contract with SCC involves piloting a virtual approach for the standards development process.  The pilot will involve forming a virtual committee to review ISO 10377 and identify national differences for Canada.  Although the pilot will use online tools, and communication with affected stakeholders will be virtual, the approach will meet all SCC standards development requirements for a National Adoption of Canada. It will also ensure openness and transparency throughout the consensus process. As part of the pilot, participants, like you, will have the option to review select portions of ISO 10377, or the standard in its entirety, depending on one’s interest or expertise.

At this time we are inviting interested parties to participate in this effort. Our approach will involve direct engagement to identified key stakeholders as well as broad outreach via social media and other online platforms to ensure participation is reflective of all voices and Canadian interests and needs are met.  

Interested in Participating?

Participation is easy.  UL’s online Collaborative Standards Development System (CSDS) is being used to facilitate the review of ISO 10377.  So we can include you in the project, email  UL.StandardsSurvey@ul.com.  

Learn More by Attending a Webinar

We are hosting a webinar on Tuesday, July 26, 2016 to share details about the review and collaboration approach, describe next steps in the process, and answer your questions. Please email UL.StandardsSurvey@ul.com to let us know you are interested in attending the webinar. 

More information on participation and the virtual approach can be found here on the UL website: http://ulstandards.ul.com/downloads/canadian-national-adoption-of-iso-10377/

 New Edition of Standard on Working in Confined Spaces


Workers in a number of different industries often perform their jobs while working in confined spaces. Pipelines, manholes, underground tunnels and storage tanks are all examples of confined spaces – and all carry significant risk to worker safety. Hazard identification before work begins is key.

CSA Group developed Z1006 Management of Work in Confined Spaces to aid in the identification and overall awareness of these safety hazards. The new edition of the standard specifies requirements for managing all aspects of work in confined spaces with several critical updates and changes.

CAN/CSA-C22.2 NO. 60601-1:14 - Medical electrical equipment - Part 1: General requirements for basic safety and essential performance (Adopted IEC 60601-1:2005, third edition, 2005-12, including amendment 1:2012, with Canadian deviations) | Appareils électromédicaux - Partie 1: Exigences générales pour la sécurité de base et les performances essentielles (norme CEI 60601-1:2005 adoptée, troisième édition, 2005-12, y compris l'amendment 1:2012, avec exigences propres au Canada)

Notes:

This International Standard applies to the BASIC SAFETY and ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE of MEDICAL ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT and MEDICAL ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS, hereafter referred to as ME EQUIPMENT and ME SYSTEMS.

If a clause or subclause is specifically intended to be applicable to ME EQUIPMENT only, or to ME SYSTEMS only, the title and content of that clause or subclause will say so. If that is not the case, the clause or subclause applies both to ME EQUIPMENT and to ME SYSTEMS, as relevant.

HAZARDS inherent in the intended physiological function of ME EQUIPMENT or ME SYSTEMS within the scope of this standard are not covered by specific requirements in this standard except in 7.2.13 and 8.4.1.

NOTE: See also 4.2.

This standard can also be applied to equipment used for compensation or alleviation of disease, injury or disability.

In vitro diagnostic equipment that does not fall within the definition of ME EQUIPMENT is covered by the IEC 61010 series 2). This standard does not apply to the implantable parts of active implantable medical devices covered by ISO 14708-1 3).

1.2 Object

The object of this standard is to specify general requirements and to serve as the basis for particular standards.

1.3 * Collateral standards

In the IEC 60601 series, collateral standards specify general requirements for BASIC SAFETY and ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE applicable to:

- a subgroup of ME EQUIPMENT (e.g. radiological equipment);

- a specific characteristic of all ME EQUIPMENT not fully addressed in this standard.

Applicable collateral standards become normative at the date of their publication and shall apply together with this standard.

NOTE 1 When evaluating compliance with IEC 60601-1, it is permissible to independently assess compliance with the collateral standards.

NOTE 2 When declaring compliance with IEC 60601-1, the declarer should specifically list the collateral standards that have been applied. This allows the reader of the declaration to understand which collateral standards were part of the evaluation.

NOTE 3 Members of IEC maintain a register of valid International Standards. Users of this standard should consult this register to determine which collateral standards have been published.

If a collateral standard applies to ME EQUIPMENT for which a particular standard exists, then the particular standard takes priority over the collateral standard.

1.4 * Particular standards

In the IEC 60601 series, particular standards may modify, replace or delete requirements contained in this standard as appropriate for the particular ME EQUIPMENT under consideration, and may add other BASIC SAFETY and ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE requirements.

NOTE: Members of IEC and ISO maintain registers of valid International Standards. Users of this standard should consult these registers to determine which particular standards have been published.

A requirement of a particular standard takes priority over this standard.

CAN/CSA-CEI/IEC CISPR 11-04 (R2013) - Start year: : 2013
Description:

CAN/CSA-CEI/IEC CISPR 11-04 (R2013) - Industrial, Scientific and Medical (ISM) Radio-Frequency Equipment - Electromagnetic Disturbance Characteristics - Limits and Methods of Measurement (Adopted CEI/IEC CISPR 11:2003, fourth edition, 2003-03)

Notes:

The limits and methods of measurement laid down in this International Standard apply to industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) equipment as defined in Clause 2, and to electrodischarge machining (EDM) and arc welding equipment.

NOTE The limits have been determined on a probabilistic basis taking into account the likelihood of interference. In cases of interference, additional provisions may be required.

Procedures are given for the measurement of radio-frequency disturbances and limits are laid down within the frequency range 9 kHz to 400 GHz.

Requirements for ISM lighting apparatus operating in the ISM frequency bands of 915 MHz (only allowed in region 2 as defined by the ITU Radio Regulations), 2,45 GHz and 5,8 GHz are contained in this standard.

Requirements for other types of lighting apparatus are covered in CISPR 15.
