SAFETY CODE PERMITS

It is the landowner’s responsibility to comply with the provincial Safety Codes Act for new construction, additions or renovations, electrical, gas, plumbing and private sewage disposal systems by obtaining a Safety Codes permit. Alberta Municipal Affairs and the Safety Codes Council administer the Alberta Safety Codes Act. This Act provides codes for the building industry to ensure safety and minimum standards for residential, commercial, industrial and other buildings throughout the province.

The County is accredited to administer the Safety Codes Act and has contracted Superior Safety Codes Inc. and the Inspections Group Inc. as its agents.  Applicants are encouraged to use the agency of their choice for the duration of the project.
