Electrical Safety Authority (ESA) is tasked with the role of regulating electrical safety matters in Ontario. They are appointed by the Ontario government and are the Authority Having Jurisdiction for Electrical Safety matters in Ontario. While ESA conducts electrical inspections related to building wiring, they do not perform Field Evaluations or Certification of electrical products or equipment.
ESA has a long history in the province of Ontario including from the days when it used to be known as HEPC (Hydro Electric Power Commission) and later, Ontario Hydro. When the name was changed to Electrical Safety Authority, the organization still conducted electrical product inspections in Ontario.
For this reason, the terms ESA Inspection (as it applies to product inspections), ESA Field Evaluation (ESA FE) and ESA Product Approval are still in use today. But the fact is that an ESA Inspection or an ESA Field Evaluation (ESA FE) is a service that must be provided by an accredited Inspection Body registered with the Standards Council of Canada, in order for the product approval to be recognized throughout Canada.
Equipment that is inspected and approved by Attesta is legal for sale and use not only in Ontario, but throughout Canada as well.
