Please note: failure to submit the applicable forms or submission of incomplete forms may result in the inspection being failed.

The contractor is responsible for ensuring that all the testing equipment used to demonstrate compliance during the acceptance test is available on site.

Non-compliances issued prior to a final acceptance inspection must be declared before requesting a final acceptance.

About failed inspections

Your inspection may be failed if:

  • Testing equipment is unavailable to demonstrate compliance during an acceptance test. It is the responsibility of the contractor to ensure the appropriate testing equipment is available during the inspection.
  • Repairs or corrections cannot be completed within a reasonable time frame, at safety officer discretion. The repair or correction will be noted on the Certificate of Inspection.
  • Non-compliances include a high hazard condition.

After a failed inspection

  • Failed inspections will result in the need for a re-inspection. Any applicable travel costs (mileage, travel time, accommodation,  meals), will be billed to subsequent re-inspections in addition to the re-inspection fee(s).
  • Failed inspections may result in a minimum two week wait for re-inspection.
  • Non-compliances related to a failed inspection must be corrected and declared prior to requesting a re-inspection.
  • Use the same procedure for booking an inspection to book a re-inspection.

About cancellations

Cancellation must be received at least two full business days* before your scheduled inspection and should be made directly to the safety officer. Cancellations outside of this timeframe will be considered a failed inspection and full inspection fees, including applicable travel costs (travel time, accommodation, flights, meals, car rental) will apply. Any costs related to booked airfare and accommodations will be charged regardless of when notice was given.

*e.g., An inspection is booked for Friday; the safety officer must be notified of the cancellation no later than the Tuesday prior. Business days are exclusive of statutory holidays observed by Technical Safety BC.

Booking after any cancellation may result in a minimum one week wait time.

About overtime

If you are requesting an overtime inspection, the request for overtime inspection form must be submitted.

In addition to inspection time, overtime hour billing may include administrative and travel time.

About removal/return to service

A request to remove a unit from service does not incur additional cost.

A request to return a unit from service may be billed a minimum of two hours, see fee schedule – Special inspection
