When do I need to renew?

If you have a Boiler, Pressure Vessels, and Refrigeration (BPVR) certificate, your certificate is valid for three years after the date of issue. If you have an Elevating Devices Operator certificate, your certificate is valid for one year after the date of issue.

You must renew your certificate before it expires if you wish to continue performing work that falls under the certificate’s scope.

What happens if I don’t renew?

If you do not renew your certificate but continue to perform regulated work, you put yourself and others at risk. These are the consequences of working with an expired certificate:

  • A safety officer may issue a compliance order, or recommend a monetary penalty
  • A safety officer may be authorized to stop your work in the field

If you have an Elevating Devices Operator certificate, you will also have to re-write the certification exam if your certificate has been expired for more than six months.
