Safety Codes

Woodlands County is not accredited under the Alberta Safety Codes Act for construction permitting and does not issue Building, Electrical, Gas, Plumbing or Private Sewage Disposal System permits.

The codes are developed by Alberta Municipal Affairs in partnership with the Safety Codes Council to provide relevant information to the building industry, designers and municipal development authorities. 

As of January 1, 2019, Alberta Safety Codes Authority (ASCA) is over seeing safety and compliance monitoring (permitting and inspections) within Woodlands County.

It is the landowner's responsibility to comply with the provincial Safety Codes Act for new construction, additions or renovations, electrical, gas, plumbing and private sewage disposal systems by obtaining a Safety Codes permit.
