Canadian Standards Association
Since its initial charter in 1919, the Canadian Standards Association has grown into the largest standards development organization in Canada. The CSA works globally with other standards development organizations to harmonize international standards.
Its library of more than 3,000 standards and codes address subjects that affect the interests of business, industry, government, regulators, and consumers in Canada and the global marketplace. A Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory, CSA is very familiar with U.S. requirements; according to the U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety, and Health Administration – OSHA regulations, the CSA-US Mark qualifies as an alternative to the UL Mark. In addition, the CSA is accredited by the American National Standards Institute - ANSI.
