This presentation is an introduction to the CSA Standard C282, for users, regulators, and for engineering designers who work on new emergency system projects regularly. It reviews the purpose of the standard, the content of the various mandatory sections and tables, the non-mandatory (informational) annexes, and then provides some clarifications to the recent changes incorporated into the latest 2015 edition.

It will discuss the principle of harmonization with other CSA documents, and why this concept is important to regulators and designers alike. The presentation also discusses the CSA process for official inquiries, and touches on the membership requirements for a CSA Standard.

Anyone who uses this document either occasionally or regularly will benefit from the material included in this seminar.
