PEARL invited to sit on CSA’s committee on electrical system maintenance



October 24, 2013 – The Professional Electrical Apparatus Recyclers League (PEARL) says the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) has invited it to sit on CSA’s Technical Committee on Electrical System Maintenance. CSA’s invitation comes after CSA’s decision last year to reference PEARL’s electrical reconditioning standards in the first edition of CSA’s Z463 “Electrical Maintenance Guidelines”, says PEARL.

“We hope to provide clear guidance on how commercial and industrial companies can integrate Z463 “Electrical Maintenance Guidelines” into their maintenance programs, and we thought PEARL would be able to help us with that, in addition to providing technical guidance on the second edition, which is expected to be completed by 2018,” explained Dave Shanahan, CSA Project Manager.

CSA’s Technical Committee on Electrical System Maintenance will include 50 people from all segments of the electrical marketplace, reports PEARL, including regulators, users and manufacturers. However, anyone with the requisite background in electrical service, maintenance and safety can contact CSA with suggestions on how to improve the standard.

PEARL members interested in becoming PEARL’s delegate to the committee should contact PEARL’s board at pearl@pearl1.org .
