Boilers & Pressure Vessels

Not only are we helping to keep Ontario safe, we’re working to keep our industry working.

Under our Boilers and Pressure Vessels (BPV) Program, our team regulates all pressure-retaining systems manufactured or used in Ontario. They review boilers, pressure vessels, and piping systems during the manufacturing process and again, once these systems are operational in locations such as schools, hospitals, factories, offices, and even nuclear power plants.

As a member of the National Board of Boilers and Pressure Vessel Inspectors and an Authorized Inspection Agency under American Society of Mechanical Engineers, our team works with industry and insurance companies to protect the safety of the public by ensuring the safe design, manufacture, installation, operation, and periodic inspection of all boiler & pressure vessels in Ontario.

They perform device and system design reviews as well as periodic, repair and alteration inspections of uninsured boilers and pressure vessels. Our Boiler & Pressure Vessels team also provide engineering and inspection services to the industry concerning the transportation of dangerous goods such as propane tanks that are dependent upon pressure vessels.

Their oversight is multi-disciplinary even includes the certification of insurance company inspector staff and provision of technical training seminars across the Province. Our knowledge and practical expertise drives the development and maintenance of the standards and codes that impact the safety of all of us in the Province.

Our Inspectors’ in-depth knowledge of standards and codes is appreciated and relied upon by our customers. They are often considered an integral part of the team at our customers’ sites, providing regular review of equipment and documentation as well as periodic repair and alteration inspections.

Our Inspectors are self-motivated, born problem-solvers who relish the fact that every day provides a unique set of challenges and environments to engage their experience and knowledge. BPV Inspectors may come from a variety of backgrounds, among them welders and quality control supervisors. Our qualified BPV Inspectors have at least five years of experience working with boilers and pressure vessels, and are Authorized Inspectors, having received their Ontario Certificates of Competency, InService Commission, and New Construction Endorsement from the National Board of Boilers and Pressure Vessel Inspectors.

For our Engineers, this is an opportunity to put their expertise to work in a stable office environment. Ontario has some of the most stringent regulations in the world, and as a result, our Engineers receive and review equipment and system designs from all over the globe. It’s a rewarding experience to help designs become fully realized. The work of our Engineers influences the future direction of the regulations and codes.
