Quality Management Systems

A Quality Management System (QMS) is a system of procedures that define how a company or individual accomplishes equipment inspections in accordance with the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Act and Regulations set out by the Government of Saskatchewan.

Anyone who intends to provide inspection services of pressure equipment must:

  1. Prepare a manual that sets out in detail the QMS that the owner, insurer or designated inspection company proposes to implement;
  2. Submit the QMS manual for review and approval by TSASK; and
  3. Implement the QMS system in accordance with the manual.

A QMS should include pressure equipment design, construction, installation, operation, alteration, repairs, inspections and decommissioning information.

An Inspection Company that will provide inspection services of pressure equipment for an approved owner or insurer of a QMS must apply for registration with TSASK.

The review process consists of a manual review and audit. The audit will take place in a six month timeframe following completion of the manual review. If the audit is not completed within six months a new application and payment will be required. Any period of inactivity or failure to comply within the 6 month timeframe will result in the application being cancelled.

Once your QMS has been reviewed and approved by the Chief Inspector, TSASK will issue a Certificate of Authorization which authorizes the holder to implement their QMS .
