Engineering Services

As part of our work ensuring compliance of elevating device designs, the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) offers engineering services.

The Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) reviews elevating device designs to ensure compliance with the  Technical Standards and Safety Act and any other applicable regulations or adopted safety codes and standards.

In addition to reviewing new and altered designs and variances as part of our  Design Registration services , TSSA offers safety assessments and compliance reviews.
