Thomas asked, The United States sold the certification to Canada as the US no longer tests the gas units, Canada now performs the testing. AGA (American Gas Association) phased out its appliance testing, certification, research and similar programs over a period of years ending in 1997. The AGA “Blue Star” seal is no longer affixed by manufacturers to products. CSA (Canadian Standards Association International) expanded its program in the United States to include design certification programs for natural gas and propane appliances. CSA International (CSA) is a well-respected testing and certification agency with laboratories in the U.S. and Canada. CSA International’s Cleveland facility tests and certifies products, and also serves as the secretariat to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards for U.S. gas appliances, equipment and components. CSA International generally tests and certifies natural gas appliances and equipment to ANSI standards.
