Elevating Devices Licences

All contractors who perform regulated work on elevating devices must be licenced by Technical Safety BC. Your licence class determines what type of regulated work you can perform. For more details, see the Safety Standards Act.

Applying for your licence

To apply for your licence:

  1. Complete the Elevating Device licence application form 317
  2. Submit by mail or in person to our New Westminster office
  3. Pay the appropriate application fee.

We’ll review your application to assess whether you’re qualified to receive your licence. Next, you’ll be invited for an interview with an elevating device safety officer and a written exam. For more information see Exams.

Renewing your Licence

You must renew your licence annually. If you have received a renewal notification, pay the fee by credit card or mail a cheque with the applicable payment to Technical Safety BC. Remember, you must not work on regulated elevating device without a valid licence. If your licence expired more than one year ago, we may require you to reapply.
