Fitting Design

Design Submission Requirements

Any person who intends to manufacture a fitting for use in Saskatchewan in connection with any boiler, pressure vessel, or pressure piping system shall apply for registration of the fitting unless otherwise provided in the regulations (described below). A fitting means a valve, gauge, regulating or controlling device, flange, pipe fitting, nozzle, or thing that is attached to or forms part of a boiler, pressure vessel, or pressure piping system. The submissions for registration shall include:

  • a completed "Application for Fitting Design Registration" form for each design; and
  • one "Statutory Declaration Form"¬†completed by the manufacturer for each design;
  • the design details (drawings, brochures, catalogues, etc. as appropriate) 1 set;
  • send additional set if you require a stamped copy returned to you (additional fee applicable)
  • one set of calculations or reports in support of the design (where applicable);
  • proof of registration in another Canadian jurisdiction (if applicable);

The design details, specifications, and other information submitted should show enough detail to demonstrate that the design will conform to the code or standard specified in the statutory declaration and that the manufacturer conforms to a quality control program as required by the CSA B51 code.

For applicable fees please refer to the fee schedule located in the left hand menu.


Submissions for registration can be made to Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan at the following address:

Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan
2202 2nd Ave.
REGINA SK S4R 1K3

Please Note - We are currently unable to accept Designs submitted by fax or other electronic means (email), however we are working hard to accomodate online application and payment in the future!

Notes

Design registration will be denoted by the Canadian Registration Number (CRN) assigned to the design. Any number of units may be made to one registered design, unless the code or regulations change to invalidate the registered design or unless the registration limits the number of units that may be built to the design. Registrations of fittings shall be resubmitted for validation ten years after the date of first acceptance.

Please Note - It is not necessary that the drawings be stamped by a registered Professional Engineer unless the code or design reviewer requires such stamping.
