Cathodic protection

In the Province of Alberta, the Apprenticeship and Industry Act (AIT) regulates the minimum certification requirements for any workers performing certain cathodic protection (CP) functions.

Therefore, if The City of Calgary has not explicitly stated that worker certifications are required for projects (including CP scopes of work), then it is at the contractor’s discretion to determine whether a CP sub-contractor is required or whether the contractor is competent in performing the functions based on AITs CP Technician Regulations​​

Mandatory CP documentation

If you are a contractor or an engineering consultant involved with a City of Calgary construction project that has a CP component in its scope of work, the applicable documents must be utilized and be readily available upon request by a City of Calgary CP inspector.

The City’s Cathodic Protection Division has implemented a revised quality management system which includes the use of Inspection & Test Plans (ITP) and Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) documents. The purpose of this system is to assist contractors in maintaining consistent levels of quality with CP system construction projects that meet City of Calgary standards.

A digital copy of the completed and signed off documents must be submitted electronically. The original hard copies must be included in the project turnover package. Incomplete or partially signed-off documents submitted will not be accepted.

Any inquiries/questions regarding the use of the documents or submission process can be directed to cathodic protection.
