Codes, Standards and Regulations



Our regulations describe the legal obligations of contractors and duty holders working with technical systems.

These regulations apply to everyone who installs, alters, maintains, or operates technologies regulated by Technical Safety BC.

In addition to the technology-specific regulations, a number of non-technical regulations cover items such as how fees are set.

You can view these regulations under both the Safety Standards Act and Railway Safety Act at the BC Statutes and Regulations site.
