Explanatory Note

This Equivalency Certificate authorizes the members of the Association québécoise du propane to transport propane or liquefied petroleum gas that is non-corrosive in TC331, MC331 and MC330 tanks constructed of other than quenched and tempered steel, that have not been periodically inspected by the wet fluorescent magnetic particle method prescribed in CSA Standard B620-09. However, tanks transporting liquefied petroleum gas or propane that is corrosive must be inspected by the WFMPI method. These requirements are based on those agreed with at the CSA B620 committee meeting in June 2010.
