Saskatchewan Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety Board

Saskatchewan has adopted the 2020 editions of the National Building Code, the National Energy Code for Buildings and the National Plumbing Code.

Saskatchewan’s adoption of these codes under The Construction Codes Act and Regulations came into force on January 1, 2024. Copies of the Regulations are available to download for free from Publications Centre.

The Boiler Pressure Vessel Safety Board (BPVSB) is established under The Boiler and Pressure Vessel Act, 1999.

The BPVSB’s role is to hear appeals from any person subject to a decision of the chief inspector in accordance with Part IX of The Boiler and Pressure Vessel Act, 1999.

The BPVSB may also advise the Minister of Government Relations on matters concerning the Act and regulations or on any matter assigned to the BPVSB by the Minister. Information about the BPVSB and its role can be found in their Policy Manual.

Submitting Appeals to the BPVSB

A notice of appeal can be submitted by any person subject to a decision of the chief inspector. Details about what must be included in your notice of appeal can be found in the BPVSB Appeal Process and Instructions.

Your notice of appeal must be delivered to both the BPBSV Chairperson and the Chief Boiler Inspector:
