Non-Regulatory Business

TSSA is not actively pursuing non-regulatory services. TSSA will maintain existing contracts at the client’s request and only enter into new arrangements at the request of customers, if deemed a safety requirement. The Technical Standards and Safety Act and the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between TSSA and the Ontario Government allow TSSA to provide the following types of non-regulatory business:

    1. Provide safety related services that are related or similar to those matters assigned to the Corporation under the Technical Standards and Safety Act 2000 -

    a.  To the federal government or any of its agencies, boards, commissions, or its other entities, where all aspects of the work occurs within Ontario

    b.  To a municipality within Ontario even if that municipality is subject to the Technical Standards and Safety Act 2000

    c.  To a First Nation, with that First Nation’s consent, for work occurring on a reserve within the meaning of the Indian Act (Canada), provided that the reserve is located within Ontario

    d.  To a person or entity for the purposes of that person or entity complying with Canadian federal or provincial law, and provided that, for work occurring after December 31, 2013, all aspects of the work occurs within Ontario

    2. Work related to issuing “Quality Assessed Facility” designation to a person for property located in Ontario, or educational institution in Ontario, even if the property, person or educational institution, as the case may be, is subject to the Technical Standards and Safety Act and provided that all aspects of work occurs within Ontario.

    3. Work in relation to issuing certificates of authorization for the purposes of a person complying with Canadian Standards Association code CSA-N285 (or a successor to that code), whether the Corporation conducts the work within Canada or in a jurisdiction outside of Canada.

    4. Work in relation to highway tanks, portable tanks and mobile processing units for the transportation of dangerous goods for the purposes of a person complying with Canadian Standards Association code CSA-B620 (or a successor to that code), whether the Corporation conducts the work within Canada or the United States of America.
