Ear to the Ground - Spring 2013 - (Page 25)

UPDATE IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Revised Fee Schedules Effective: May 1, 2013 T echnical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) recently completed a review of its fees in accordance with its Fee Setting Principles. This included extensive consultation with industry through its industry advisory councils and fee review subcommittees. TSSA charges fees on a cost-recovery basis and is committed to providing value for money across all its safety programs. In keeping with our commitment to openness and transparency, this is an advance notification that revised fee schedules will be coming into effect for the majority of customers as of May 1, 2013. Changes to the fees are an effort to equitably reflect true cost of public safety services. Dedicated to enhancing public safety in Ontario, TSSA’s revised fee schedules focus primarily on: • Enhancing and/or introducing new incentives and deterrents to increase compliance; • Simplifying existing fee structures to reduce complexity and administrative burden; and • Improving clarity of fees to increase predictability and understanding of value for fees among customers. Highlights of the revised fee structure for fuel sting fuel-related services are as follows: • Fuels Safety Programs’ customers will experience less than 2.4% annualized average increases over the next three years. • The majority of fees, including hourly rates, remain unchanged. • The separate travel surcharge will be eliminated from invoicing. • A minimum fee structure, inclusive of travel, will be introduced. • Reduction in Propane Level 1 Risk and Safety Management Plan (RSMP) application/renewal fees. Specific to the Excavation Community Two important changes: • Pipeline strike inspection fee is increasing to $850. • New fee: Ad-hoc inspection fee for excavation with no locates is $500. Note: If there is pipeline damage with no locates both fees will apply.
