ENEFEN is the FIRST and ONLY Standards
Council of Canada
Federally Accredited INSPECTION BODY for Field
of Commercial and Industrial
Gas-Fired Appliances and Equipment.
Someone asked me the other day, "Why do we say we are the 'First and Only IB' when there are other organisations which are IB's?"
It was a good question, and one that deserves to be shared.
We will always be the First, because ENEFEN truly was the first IB (Inspection Body) to be accredited by Standards Council of Canada. We led the way for others to follow. We set the highest standard for an IB in the industry. We set it so high, in fact, that other organisations cannot meet the quality and knowledgeable experience which ENEFEN provides as an IB.
Second, we are the Only IB with a Type C designation. You may ask "Why is this important, who cares?" Type C means that as an IB ENEFEN can provide both design expertise and inspection expertise without conflict of interest. Our clients love it because we not only tell them what doesn't conform to gas code safety regulations, but we can assist them through the swamp of regulations when designing. Our inspection team is headed by Jozef Jachniak, P.Eng. in Alberta and our engineering team is headed by Rodger Talstra, P.Eng. in BC.

CAN/CSA B149 requires owners of gas fired appliances have an inspection after installation to confirm compliance to the codes.ENEFEN provides assistance with designs to ensure they meet compliance prior to upgrading, purchasing or installing, and provides the inspection of the appliance after installation.

This Appendix contains mandatory requirements applicable to Inspection Bodies (IBs) that evaluate commercial and industrial gas-fired appliances and equipment for safety and suitability.
This is a type C inspection body in accordance with ISO/IEC 17020:2012, Annex A which provides first party inspections, second party inspections, or both, which form an identifiable but not necessarily a separate part of an organization involved in the design, manufacture, supply, installation, use or maintenance of the items it inspects and which supplies inspection services to its parent organization or to other parties, or to both.
