Boiler plant registration guide
Step 1: Login to your online account
Register here You will receive an email invitation to activate your new account. After activating your account, login to register your plants.
Step 2: Registering your plant
The Unit view will show all equipment by site address, site/building name, unit name, classification (description of equipment), unit number, corresponding operating permit numbers and the status of permits (initial, active, or expired).
Step 3: Add boiler plant information
|Regulation Plant Type||Description||Boiler Unit Type|
|Power Plant – High Pressure Thermal Fluid Plant||Direct relationship to a||High Pressure Thermal Fluid Boiler|
|Power Plant – High Pressure High Temperature Fluid Plant||Can be classified as a||High Pressure Steam Boiler|
|Power Plant – High Pressure Steam Plant||Can be classified as a||High Pressure Steam Boiler|
|Heating Plant – Steam Heating (Low Pressure Steam Boiler)||Direct relationship to a||Low Pressure Steam Boiler|
|Heating Plant – Fluid Heating (Hot Water Boiler)||Direct relationship but boiler working pressure is more than 30 PSI and temperature is over 212F.||Hot Water (HW) Boiler|
|Low Temperature Low Pressure Fluid Plant (Low Pressure Hot Water Boiler)||Working boiler pressure is not more than 30 PSI and temperature is less than 212 F.||Low Pressure Hot Water Boiler|
|Low Pressure Thermal Fluid Plant||Direct relationship to||Low Pressure Thermal Fluid Boiler|
|Oil Well Plant (Drilling Rig Boiler)||Direct relationship to||Drilling Rig or Skid Boilers|
Step 4: Existing special plant registration permit holders
The header will be created once the Add Header button is selected.
Validation for the correct boiler types to the corresponding header plant types is embedded in the web form submission process. If the wrong header type is selected and a user tries to drag and drop a boiler unit into the selected header the following error message will appear. (For e.g., Selecting 'Heating' header type instead of 'Heating Plant – Fluid Heating' for Power Plant – High Pressure Thermal Fluid.) Click OK to clear the warning message.
To re-select the correct header type, click OK and delete the header by selecting the X beside the header description.
The Delete Header message box will appear requesting confirmation that you want to remove this header. Select Delete button to confirm.
Re-enter the name of the header, header description, select and add the correct header type.
Step 5: Sites/premises with more than one Header
Note: A maximum of 10 headers can be created for each site/premise. If you have more than 10 headers at one site/premise, contact our office directly for assistance.
The following warning message will appear if: there are unassigned boiler units, and all boiler units at the site/premise are not assigned to corresponding headers.
Click OK and ensure that all boiler units have been assigned to their corresponding headers. The plant registration process can be submitted for classification and validation only when all boiler units have been assigned.
Step 6: Header and Site/Premise Summary
The header summary lists all headers at the site, header descriptions, total boiler heating capacity in m2, the total number of boiler units connected to each header and the header type.
The site/premise summary validates each site/premise owned by the client and provides a listing of each site’s total boiler heating capacity in m2, the total number of headers, plant type(s), and plant class/supervision levels.
If the header and site/premise summary is correct then continue the registration process by designating a chief engineer, primary operator or an oil well boiler operator to the site/premise. If the information is incorrect, use the back button (left bottom hand corner) to return to section 3.
Drag and drop unit(s) to the header box(es) to correct the information. Reference step 'Deleting a Header' in Trouble shooting.
Step 7: Selecting supervision type
Use the drop down box to select the Supervision Type e.g., Primary Operator.
Enter the last 6 digits of the Technical Safety BC certification number and the last name of the site/premise’s Chief Engineer, Primary Operator or Oil Well Boiler Operator.
Note: Technical Safety BC power engineer certification numbers are 12 digits long and begin with CBP e.g. CPB000123456.
Once all the certified individual’s information is entered, click Search button. The information will be validated and if the certification information is valid, the name of the certified power engineer and their level of classification will appear. Click Submit to submit your site’s Plant Registration application.
