Email this pageQualification & Registration
The Building Code Act, 1992 requires that a range of individuals and firms responsible for activities regulated under the Act be qualified and registered.
These requirements apply to:
- Building officials, including chief building officials, supervisors, managers, inspectors (including on-site sewage system inspectors and fire protection inspectors) and plans examiners
- Certain classes of designers
- Private companies hired by municipalities to conduct inspections (known as registered code agencies)
- On-site sewage system installers
To be qualified in a particular field of practice, an individual must successfully complete the examination program related to their area of practice. This will typically involve successfully completing one or more examinations.
Individuals or their firms then register with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing.
The Ministry’s Qualification and Registration Tracking System (QuARTS) allows for the on-line processing of certain applications, and includes a public registry of qualified persons and firms.
Training is available, though not obligatory, to assist practitioners in preparing for qualification examinations. Training information can be found at: http://ce.georgebrown.ca/buildingcodeinformation
