This is the third edition of CSA B109, Natural gas for vehicles installation code. It supersedes the previous edition published in 2014 under the same title and the 2001 edition, published under the title Natural gas for vehicles installation code - Part 1 Compressed natural gas.
This Code consists of the following:

This Code was prepared by the Subcommittee on Natural Gas for Vehicles Installation Code, under the jurisdiction of the Technical Committee on Natural Gas Powered Vehicles and Fuelling under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Transportation and has been formally approved by the Technical Committee and the Interprovincial Gas Advisory Council.
