Relocatable Industrial Accommodation 

Changes have been made to the Part 10 Quality Management System for factory-built relocatable industrial accommodation units for all out-of-province and out-of-country manufacturing facilities. These changes provide the capacity for national and international on-site factory inspection for compliance to the Part 10 Quality Management System and the Safety Codes Act by third party certification bodies accredited by the Standards Council of Canada. Click here for more details.

All in-province manufacturing facilities will continue under the existing Part 10 quality management system.
