Gas and electric licensing moves to Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan

Gas and electric licensing moves to Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan

REGINA — The Government of Saskatchewan is completing its transfer of gas and electrical licensing services to the Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan (TSASK).

The transfer is part of a larger initiative to centralize numerous technical safety services in Saskatchewan to TSASK, which was formally announced on Dec. 13, 2018.

As of Aug. 4 “contractors, tradespeople and businesses can go to TSASK’s website to obtain, renew and pay for their gas and electrical licences online. This is the next step in creating a ‘one-stop’ shop for provincial technical safety services, which in turn, will reduce red tape and help to build a strong Saskatchewan,” said Saskatchewan Government Relations Minister Lori Carr in a statement.

Gas and electrical inspections and permitting will be transferred from SaskPower to TSASK in 2021 as will plumbing inspections and permitting from the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

A review in 2009 recommended development of a single entity for all regulatory safety services and TSASK was established as an independent body in 2010 with a mandate  to oversee the safe construction, installation and operation of boilers, pressure vessels, elevating devices and amusement rides, a government release stated.
