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 must apply for registration of the fitting unless otherwise provided in the regulations.

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.

Registration Submissions must include:

  • A completed Application for Fitting Design Registration form for each design; 
  • 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.

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.

Applicable fees can be found in the fee schedule.
 

Submitting a Design

Electronic submission of design registration is required, see Guidelines for Electronic Application for Design Registration for instructions. 

It is not necessary that the drawings be stamped by a registered Professional Engineer unless the code of construction requires an Engineering Judgement.
