(ULC) as an accredited Inspection Body (IB) for performing Field Evaluations (FE) of Gas-fired Appliances & Equipment (A&E). As an accredited SCC IB, ULC will now be able to expand its suite of services to work with owners and operators to help ensure their gas-fired appliances and equipment are in compliance with the B149 Gas Code and other published requirements.

With this IB accreditation, ULC positions itself to further support the safety mandate of code authorities having jurisdiction across the country.
