Manitoba’s Halon Working Group was first established in April, 1994. An education certification sub committee successfully oversaw and developed Canada’s first halon environmental training course as part of MOPIA’s commitment to meet the certification training requirements as per the ODS regulation. The working group also successfully recommended changes to the Manitoba Fire Code to complement and harmonize provincial legislation.
MOPIA actively participates on the National Halon Round Table, a federal government sponsored working group of industry representatives. Since provincial governments are not participants at the Round Table meetings, MOPIA provides the leadership and voice of concerns for Manitobans.
