Talk:Canadian Standards Association

"Not uncommon" is among the worst of weasel words because not only is it a double negative, it's a double negative that doesn't even mean what it appears to mean. I doubt counterfeiting is common. It's more likely that counterfeiting is rare but present. I'm going to see if I can't find some hard data to determine how common the practice is.199.60.239.35 (talk) 20:29, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

I've followed all the sources I could, and gone as far as contacting CSA directly and asking. The CSA representative told me there is no public record of known counterfeits, so this doesn't seem like a verifyable claim. I'm going to change the wording to be more accurate. 199.60.239.35 (talk) 20:59, 3 June 2010 (UTC)

Note: I added the stuff about CSA accepting UL test reports, but not the other way around, from my own experience as an electrical engineer -- we always got our products approved by UL first, then CSA, for exactly this reason. 4.245.200.148 02:56, 30 April 2005

Note: This entire page seems to be one giant propaganda leaflet from the CSA. The CSA is accountable to no one. The CSA has somehow managed to become a defacto governance body on all things HVAC and otherwise. The CSA refuses to adopt standards regarding new and innovative technologies from other international associations (i.e. Europe) and so the CSA is keeping Canada in the stone ages.

Copyright violation[edit]

Reposting extensive sections of another web site's content without permission is a copyright violation. Rewrite the material in a proper, neutral, encyclopediac tone and leave out the cheerleading and self promotion found on in-house Web pages. "Just the facts, Ma'am" should be one of the Wikipedia mottoes. --Wtshymanski 19:32, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Content needed[edit]

This article is quite unsatisfactory. Can anyone provide any references other than the CSA Web site that talk about the history of the organization, and that evaluate its significance and compare it with other world standards-setting organizations? The CSA Web site is mostly just self-promotional cheerleading. Please don't cut and paste paragraphs from the CSA site. I've merged in the subsidiary organizations to get rid of a bunch of very stubby content-free articles. --Wtshymanski 21:20, 11 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:CSA c-us.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:CSA c-us.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
