Forms and fees referenced on this page:


All contractors that perform regulated work on elevating devices must be licenced by BCSA. Your licence class determines what type of regulated work you can perform. For more details, see the Safety Standards Act.

Applying for your licence

If you would like to apply for your licence, complete the Elevating Device licence application form 317 and submit by mail or in person to BCSA New Westminster office along with a cheque payable to BCSA with the appropriate application fee according to the Fee Schedule.

We’ll review your application to assess whether you’re qualified to receive your licence. Next, you’ll be invited for an interview with an elevating device Safety Officer and a written exam. For more information see Exams.

Renewing your Licence

You must renew your licence annually. If you have received a renewal notification, please pay the fee by credit card or mail a cheque with the applicable payment to BCSA. Remember, you must not work on regulated elevating device without a valid licence. If your licence expired more than one year ago, we may require you to reapply.
