Wallet Cards and Wall Certificates – an update on issuance and interim measures
Technical Safety BC recently started accepting certificate renewals as required by recent changes to the Power Engineers, Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Refrigeration Safety Regulation. To accommodate the new requirements, we introduced two interim measures as follows:
- The ability for certified individuals to download a PDF of their wall certificate through our online services portal.
- The issuance of a peel-off wallet card by mail to certified individuals.
The above options for proof of certification are considered temporary and we are currently working to provide new, security-enhanced wallet cards as well as permanent wall certificates. Unfortunately, we are not able to meet our original target of distributing the permanent certificates by the end of March but certificate holders will receive new wallet cards and wall certificates as soon as they are ready.
We acknowledge the substantial investment that certified individuals have put in their certification process and we appreciate your patience around the transitional process as we work to enhance your proof of qualification.
