UPDATE BC contractors now need to include licence number in advertising

Technical Safety BC is reminding licensed contractors that they must now publish their company name and Technical Safety BC licence number in sales and marketing materials when advertising regulated services.

The changes apply to licensed contractors in electrical, gas, boilers, pressure vessels, and refrigeration sectors.

Technical Safety BC is taking a three-phase approach for updating advertising materials. In the second phase, non-digital or offline sales and marketing materials must be updated with the Technical Safety BC licence number by September 30, 2023. In phase three, vehicles and storefronts number must feature the licence number by January 1, 2024.
