Accreditation Requirements

Organizations are required to report their annual activities to the Council. In addition, they may owe fees and levies.

What is Accreditation?

The Safety Codes Council has the authority to accredit municipalities, agencies, and corporations to administer the Safety Codes Act. These accredited organizations monitor compliance through permitting and inspections across the province.

Alberta Safety Codes Authority

The Alberta Safety Codes Authority (ASCA) is a division of the Safety Codes Council that serves the approximately 300,000 Albertans who live in unaccredited areas of the province. ASCA ensures that Albertans in these areas receive the same high level of service and accountability as those living in accredited areas.
