The Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) protects the health and well-being of Ontarians by providing oversight of individuals, organizations and devices in several regulated industries across the province to ensure regulatory safety obligations are met.
Authorizations such as licences and registrations are the TSSA’s method of monitoring the activities of businesses, facilities and devices operating within Ontario. Having a valid licence, registration or permit informs the public that businesses, facilities, contractors, operators and devices are legally authorized to operate. TSSA ensures authorization holders are operating safely by collecting data required to validate knowledge, competency and qualifications through periodic inspections and audits and regulatory prerequisites.
There are several actions a license holder will need to take to keep their authorization valid and ensure they are operating within their regulated industry legally, including:
Applying for an initial license
Renewing a license
Reinstating a license
Changing of ownership
Cancelling a license
