An ORD with a status of Valid has been recognized by a Canadian regulatory authority body and has been provided to SCC for inclusion in the ORD database.
An ORD with a status of Expired has exceeded its five-year validity period. All certifications issued to this document while it was valid are still acceptable. No new certifications to this document shall be granted.
An ORD with a status of Withdrawn has been rescinded by its authoring organization. No new certifications to this document shall be granted.
A standard may be withdrawn if it:
- is not technically up-to-date
- does not reflect current practice or research
- is not suitable for new and existing applications (products, systems or processes)
- is not compatible with current views and expectations regarding quality, safety and the environment
This status is also used if:
- the standard is withdrawn and not replaced by the author for any of the reasons mentioned above
- there has been a change in the standard designation (e.g. if CSA A1234-2000 is superseded by CSA B5678-2005)
An ORD with a status of Superseded has been replaced by another document. No new certifications to this document shall be granted.
An ORD with a status of Valid will automatically change to Expired once the expiry date has passed.
When an ORD status indicates Superseded, you will find the details on the new document in the “Superseded By” field.
