Following guidance from the province's Restart BC Plan and new health and safety regulations from WorkSafeBC, we are taking all necessary steps to protect public health and maintain the safety of our employees.
Request an inspection for your permitted work
Most work you do with a permit requires an inspection. It is the responsibility of the homeowner or contractor to arrange for all inspections at the right time.
Inspections during the COVID-19 situation
Inspections are still available during the current COVID-19 situation. However, to protect the health of our inspectors and members of the public, please observe these rules:
- Premises to be inspected has to be unoccupied
- One representative must be on site who can provide entry to the premises, and witness the inspection
- Appropriate social distancing etiquette must be observed throughout the visit
- You must reschedule the inspection if your representative shows any signs of illness
We reserve the right to cancel the inspection if the inspector considers that these requirements have not been met.
