The Electrical Contractors Guide provides guidance to both electrical contractors and persons who wish to become licensed electrical contractors within the province of British Columbia.

The BC Safety Authority (BCSA) is responsible for the Electrical Safety Program throughout British Columbia. The Electrical Safety Program protects the people of British Columbia by promoting the safe installation and maintenance of electrical wiring and equipment.

Electrical Operating Permits

The Spring 2014 issue of Electrical Safety News is now available!

Owners of high voltage equipment, any system with a supply over 250 kVA or a building with this type of equipment or supply, often need an operating permit.

To apply for your permit

  1. Complete the Electrical Operating Permit Application Form 410,
  2. Name a Field Safety Representative (FSR) in your application. The FSR may be an employee of the equipment owner or an electrical contractor,
  3. Submit the form in person at your nearest BCSA office.

We will mail an invoice once the application has been processed. For information on these fees, please see the Electrical Fee Schedule.

If you have an operating permit, and your Field Safety Representative has changed, you must submit a Notice of FSR Change immediately.

Renewing your operating permit

Renew your existing operating permit by completing the Operating Permit Renewal and Declaration Form 1218. Submit in person at your nearest BCSA office.

Operating permits may take several weeks to issue from the date you submit an application.
