The Liquid Fuels Handling Code, 2007 was adopted by the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) by Director's Order FS-107-07 on June 1, 2007. The 2007 version of the Code will come into force on September 1, 2007.
Changes to the Code include reference to the revised Environmental Management Protocol for Operating Fuel Handling Sites in Ontario, which amends Protocol GA1/99. The amendments to the Environmental Management Protocol update the reporting and investigative obligations in the event of spills or leaks and integrate these requirements under the Protocol with the Soil, Ground Water, Sediment Standards for Use Under Part XV.1 of the Environmental Protection Act.
One additional significant change in the 2007 version of the Code is the requirement that facilities replace single-walled piping within 12 months of the discovery of a pipe leak.
