In CSA Standards, "shall" is used to express a requirement, ¡.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard. Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material. Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements. Legends to equations and figures are considered requirements.
These Standards were prepared by the Technical Committee on Plastic Nonpressure Pipe, under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Plumbing Products and Materials, and have been formally approved by the Technical Committee. This compendium of Standards will be submitted to the Standards Council of Canada for approval as a National Standard of Canada.
(1) Use of the singular does not exclude the plural (and vice versa) when the sense allows.
