The special inspection program is a unique program offering manufacturers/importers/distributors of electrical equipment the opportunity to have their products accepted by the Authorities having Jurisdiction (i.e., BC Safety Authority, Electrical Safety Authority [Ontario], etc.) without the hassle of certification. This program is aimed at those manufacturers/ importers/ distributors producing a limited quantity of products or limited production type manufacturing.
