Topic: Class “PW” contractor licensing requirements

The purpose of this information bulletin is to provide details in respect to a class “PW” contractor licence that Technical Safety BC administers under the Safety Standards Act (the Act), and the Power Engineers, Boiler, Pressure Vessel, and Refrigeration Safety Regulation.

A “PW” contractor’s licence holder is limited to performing subcontracted pressure welding on regulated items only under an installation, repair, and alteration permit that has been obtained by a class “A”, “Au”, “Ap”, “B”, and “REF” contractors’ licence holder.

An application for obtaining a “PW” contractor’s licence is to be supported with a quality control program based on “PW” Guideline” (BRC-7024)

Further details related to application and renewal of a contractor’s licence, including forms and fees, is available on the Technical Safety BC website at the following link https://www.technicalsafetybc.ca/boilers-pressure-vessels-and-refrigeration-contractor-licenses
