In March 2020, we shifted our assessment model to remote assessments as the primary method of assessment, and will remain an important tool in our assessment operations. This shift was made in order to fulfill our public mandate of ensuring the safety of critical infrastructure, and of all British Columbians, while at the same time protecting and putting our employees first.

How does remote inspection work?

A remote inspection is an inspection performed without physically attending site. 

To support the remote inspection process you will be requested to provide specific evidence that clearly demonstrates that your amusement device meets the requirements of the Act, Regulation, and the CSA Z267-00 Safety Standard. Types of evidence that may be requested include, but are not limited to:

  • Photo or videos logs (time stamped when necessary)
  • Live video conferencing
  • Documentation (PDFs, Word, etc.), this includes the following pre-operation inspection checklist declarations for the following amusement devices:

Note: If you are preparing to resume operations, please complete and submit the pre-operation inspection checklist declarations to your local safety officer prior to resuming operations. 

Once your remote inspection has been completed you will be issued a certificate of inspection.

If you have any further questions, please email our Contact Centre, with the subject line “Remote assessments”.
