Note: If you have no previous knowledge or experience with heating systems, it would be in your best interest to hire a heating contractor who is eligible to receive permits. Work completed by inexperienced individuals often requires extensive corrections to bring the installation up to code, and may create a serious hazard.
A Safety Codes Officer may, by written notice sent or delivered to the applicant at the address or telefax number on the application, cancel or suspend a permit if he is aware that:
Expiration of Permit:
- incorrect information was submitted in or with the application for the permit;
- information submitted with the application is inadequate to determine whether the proposed work complies or will comply with the Safety Codes Act;
- the proposed work for which the permit was issued does not or will not comply with the Safety Codes Act or the permit or any condition thereof; or
- the permit was issued in error.
A mechanical permit expires if the work is not commenced within 90 days of the issuance of the permit or if no work is carried out under the permit for a period of 120 consecutive days. Upon written application made prior to the expiry of the permit, the Safety Codes Manager may extend the time period for a permit by an additional 180 days.
