The Electrical Safety Authority has issued a bulletin (Bulletin 2-10-12) re: Electrical equipment near combustible gas equipment -- Rule 2-324 and 6-408 (the bulletin supersedes Bulletin 2-10-11). Rule 2-324 states that the clearance between arc-producing electrical equipment and a combustible gas relief device or vent shall be in accordance with the requirements of CSA B149.1, “Natural gas and propane installation code,” which uses the terms “source of ignition” and “discharge openings of relief devices.”

According to ESA, “questions have been asked regarding the specific types of electrical equipment covered by the rule” and the bulletin was prepared to provide some clarifications.
