These three long time members of the Technical Committee for CSA Standard S37 have put this Commentary together to provide essential background information and explanations for many clauses in this Standard. The Commentary sets out the background of CSA Standard S37-01, with the reasons and sources of data for its clauses, so that users may better understand the intent and background of the requirements; those that are self-explanatory, or are covered by other standards, have been left without comment.
