Your Building Inspector must confirm that the new or relocated Backflow Assembly complies with the requirements of the Ontario Building Code and the referenced standard, CSA B64.10-11 for Premise Isolation. Additionally, the Inspector must verify the device has passed testing by a Qualified Tester as described in the amended Water By-law.
The permit plans and specifications must be on site and made available to the Building Inspector at the time of inspection. To ensure the availability of a Building Inspector, you should book your inspection 48 hours in advance. The Building Inspector name and phone number is identified on the building permit.
Building Code Service counters are open for personal services by appointment only. This includes the submission of permit applications, payment of fees and the issuance of permits.
