Safety Standards Appeal Board
The Safety Standards Appeal Board's purpose is to resolve appeals of decisions made under the Safety Standards Act and the Homeowner Protection Act, and to determine if the decisions were fairly made according to the provisions of the legislation. Established under the Safety Standards Act, the board operates at arm’s length from the government in its decision-making.
The board hears appeals from:
- Decisions of safety officers and safety managers appointed under the Safety Standards Act. These decisions apply to work and products regulated by the Act and its associated regulations, including adopted codes and standards.
- Decisions of the registrar appointed under the Homeowner Protection Act. These decisions relate to residential builders licenses and owner builder authorizations regulated by the Act and its associated regulations.
The board follows the formal requirements of the appeal process set out in the two acts as well as its published Rules of Practice and Procedure which regulate the procedure to be followed in all appeals to the board.
