The 2020 Alberta Standard of Practice Release and Update – Is It Happening?

The release of the 2020 Alberta Standard of Practice has been postponed to March 31, 2021.  Once the new SOP is released, current Certificate of Competency holders will be required to participate in Standard of Practice Update training provided by Alberta Onsite Wastewater Management Association.  A time frame for completion of this training will be set by Alberta Municipal Affairs.

One year following the release of the Standard of Practice, it will come into force.  In the interim between the release and coming into force, the 2015 Standard of Practice will continue to be utilized for design and installation of onsite wastewater systems.
