Free Webinar - Impacts to the CEC by IEC


Event Website

Event Description

Autopro is pleased to invite you to Impacts to the CEC by IEC, a free, one hour educational session offered as part of our Autopro School of Technology Online webinar series.

As you may already be aware, part of a Process Safety Management (PSM) plan follows IEC 61511 (or the equivalent) in order to meet some of the PSM elements. However, according to the 2018 version of the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC), Canadian process industry players will soon be required to comply with IEC 61511. For Alberta producers that date is February 1, 2019. This is a six month buffer to comply with a standard that, in reality, is not as well understood as it should be.

During this webinar you will learn:

  • A brief background on the CEC and its implementation in Alberta
  • What each company will be required to develop as part of these changes
  • What every project will require going forward
  • Possible paths forward in how best to prepare for the new CEC changes
