The Technical Standards and Safety Authority’s (TSSA) Boilers and Pressure Vessels (BPV) Safety Program is involved throughout the entire lifecycle in the design, manufacturing, installation, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of pressure equipment. This includes those that produce hot water, steam, compressed air and other compressed liquids and gases.
Registration and inspection are required before boilers, pressure vessels, piping systems and fittings are pressurized. The BPV Safety Program’s core regulatory services include the following:
Ontario Regulation 220/01 (Ontario.ca) and the Code Adoption Document (CAD) apply to the design, construction, maintenance, use, operation, repair and service of boilers, pressure vessels and piping, except those meeting the exemption requirements of O. Reg. 220/01, s.2. See a list of regulation exemptions here.
