Bulletin - 1380 kPa (200 psi) Propane Tanks
TSASK has issued a bulletin regarding the use of 1380 kPa (200 psi) propane tanks in Saskatchewan. The Regulations regarding boilers and pressure vessels in Saskatchewan state in Clause 17(2) that propane tanks must be designed to a minimum pressure of 1725 kPa (250 psi). Therefore, 1380 kPa (200 psi) tanks must not be used in Saskatchewan. Please click here to be directed to the bulletin that was issued.

Replacement of a Nameplate and/or Re-stamping of Code Data
From time to time, the stamping on a pressure-retaining item becomes indistinct or the nameplate is lost, illegible or detached. However, traceability to the original pressue-retaining item is still possible. In order to maintain that traceability, a replacement nameplate and/or the re-stamping of code data may be required.
TSASK information paper IP-2017-04-19 Replacement Nameplates and/or Re-stamping of Code Data on Pressure-Retaining Items details the requirements for replacement nameplates and/or the re-stamping of code data and provides guidance in the completion of the application form - TSK-0016 Replacement of a Nameplate and/or Re-stamping of Code Data.
This new information paper and form are not to be used by companies with a National Board R Symbol Certificate of Authorization. Those companies shall continue to use form NB-136 as found in Part 2, Section 5 of the National Board Inspection Code.
