To legally operate a business, facility or device in Ontario, those in TSSA-regulated industries must maintain a current TSSA licence or registration. Active authorizations are necessary for TSSA to have oversight of the technical operations it regulates.

Last summer, TSSA informed authorization holders of its policy for reinstating lapsed authorizations. In an effort to help regulated parties keep their authorizations in good standing and remain compliant with safety laws, while further protecting the wellbeing of Ontarians, TSSA provides regulated parties with notice of renewal on a number of occasions using various outreach methods.

Starting May 2, 2022, TSSA will begin active outreach to former authorization holders whose authorizations expired between April 30, 2016, and April 30, 2021, to bring the operations back into compliance, if warranted, and ensure they’re performing safely.

TSSA will contact former authorization holders using a staggered timeline for each safety program area.

  • Elevating Devices – Commencing May 2, 2022
  • Boilers and Pressure Vessels – Commencing late July/early August 2022
  • Fuels – Commencing November 1, 2022

Please note that these dates are subject to change, to maintain effective workflow management and customer service levels.
