Electrical: Non-CSA approved equipment in Ontario?
I'm pretty sure it's illegal to manufacture and sell non-CSA approved equipment. However, is it legal to import an appliance that doesn't have a CSA approval sticker? Is it legal to operate it in Ontario? Does UL approval translate directly to CSA/CUL in Ontario?
I've read that you can have individual equipment field certified. Prices seem to range from $75 for a basic inspection, to $300 for field certfication, to thousands of dollars for proper full certification of a model line. If I have a piece of non-CSA approved equipment, how much should I expect to pay to have it field certified by an inspector on-site?
