Information for Designers, Engineers and Architects

Effective January 1, 2006 the requirements of the amended Building Code Act and Ontario Building Code (OBC) with respect to designers came into effect.

This means that both you and/or your company must be registered and/or have the qualifications as prescribed by Section 3.2 Division C of the OBC unless otherwise exempted.

Failure to comply with this requirement will result in any permit application or permit documents prepared by you or your company being denied by the Building and Support Services Section.

Also, please note that Schedule 1 of the Permit Application form must be fully completed by the designer taking responsibility.

If you have any questions concerning these requirements, please check the Ministry of Municipal Affairs, Building Branches.
