TSSA’s Boilers and Pressure Vessels Safety Program ensures the safe design, construction, maintenance, use, operation and repair of all pressure-retaining components in Ontario by authorizing operators. This includes those that produce hot water, steam, compressed air and other compressed liquids and gases.
Before pressurized equipment is registered, we conduct an engineering review to verify safety. We examine equipment and facilities prior to start-up and then conduct periodic inspections on uninsured equipment.
We also certify inspectors who are licensed to conduct periodic inspections of all insured equipment.

The TSSA registers, inspects, and regulates the safety of plants in Ontario through our Operating Engineers (OE) Safety Program. TSSA is also responsible for the examination and certification of the professionals who manage, operate and maintain plants and the equipment within.
If you are submitting a request to apply for a licence to operate, own, or manage a plants or facility within the province of Ontario, you will be required to submit one or more of the following application forms with your submission:
As per section 4 of O. Reg 219/01 (Operating Engineers), all plants in Ontario must be registered in Ontario before operating.
In addition, section 5 of O. Reg 219/01 states that in order for plants to be registered, they have to submit an application form acceptable to the Chief Officer and to TSSA.
No matter whether your facility is governed under the alternate rules (Path 1 or Path 2) or by the regulation (Path 0), you must fill out the ARP as the first step in the registration and reregistration process.
The ARP provides basic information about a plant user (a person or persons in control of a plant as owner, lessee or otherwise, but does not include the operating engineers or operators who operate, control or maintain the plant) as a first step to issuing a certificate of registration as per Section 5 of O. Reg 219/01.
Plants seeking to be registered in Ontario are required to fill out, sign off and submit an accurate Plant Equipment List (PEL) as a part of the application package.
This PEL must be completed by the plant user (a person or persons in control of a plant as owner, lessee or otherwise, but does not include the operating engineers or operators who operate, control, or maintain the plant) or, when the user is a business, the user’s agent.
The PEL establishes and maintains an accurate record of all regulated equipment at the user’s registered plant. This exercise in ownership over the plant’s safety data is the crucial first step in demonstrating that a give plant user is truly holding themselves accountable for the safety of their plant(s).
For Path 1 or Path 2 plants, PEL information is factored into the calculation of the plant’s inherent safety risk based on the equipment that exists on site.
