CAN/ULC-S1001 testing, is a new required regulatory requirement in Ontario as of January 1, 2020. As it is new requirement, it is often either forgotten or brought forth during construction late in schedule. Proponents such as, engineers, general contractors, or electrical contractors are left scrambling to complete this project task during project close out, creating undue stress for various stakeholders and pushing occupancy dates. This presentation will provide clarification on the standard’s scope, how it is applied, how to plan, who is responsible and qualified to do the work and other clarifications.
