I have never needed to pull a permit for Low voltage cat5 cable before. But a particular work order is asking for me, or another tech, to pull a permit to extend some demark lines. I have done my share of Demark line extensions that is not a big deal. But never have pulled a permit before.

What are the steps according to pull a permit? does it vary from province to province city to city? There are no requirements to be a licensed as a low voltage technician in our region of British Columbia Canada.

British Columbia falls under the BC Safety Authority, except Burnaby, Maple Ridge, Vancouver, Victoria, West Vancouver, North Vancouver and Surrey... they all have their own inspection departments.

Vancouver is regulating door knobs... can't be surprised they want to regulate your cat5e. That said, it could just be a generic requirement of the customer, without realizing that a permit is not required. Or maybe they're required now?

I've had to pull permits for cat5 many times. In the land of the free and the home of the brave, you have to have a business license in the city you are working in and pay the fees and have it inspected just like anything else.
