Approximately one year ago, Environmental Climate Change Canada (ECCC)unilaterally banned the importation of the propellent HFC134A into Canada due to environmental regulations. This unfortunately affected our product, Trutest Smoke Detector Sensitivity Tester, and the aerosol that is required for its operation (Smoke 400). As many of you are aware, smoke detector sensitivity testing is required by CAN/ULC-S536-19. Currently, the only third-party solution to test smoke detector sensitivity is Trutest, which is available from SDi as well as various distributors across Canada. We are happy to report that after a year of negotiations with ECCC, an exception has now been made due to life safety issues and in order to remain compliant with CAN/ULC-S536-19. Importation of Trutest and Smoke 400 is now once again permitted.
To assist our Canadian customers, SDi will complete and submit all paperwork necessary for the granting of permits by ECCC to import Trutest/Smoke 400 at no cost. We will maintain all records as required by Canadian regulations and shall file reports on their behalf. Our Business Development Managers who are responsible for the Canadian market will assist you at the time of purchase and make it as seamless as possible.
Please feel free to contact SDi at email@example.com if you have any questions. Thank you for your patience while we sorted out this matter.
