Welcome

Renewing the blaster certificate

To renew the blaster certificate, send the renewal form duly filled out, along with the documents required, to one of the Commission de la Construction du Québec (CCQ) regional offices.

It is important to apply for renewal of the certificate before its expiry date, or else you will have to take the examination for the blaster examination again.

Since November 30, 2010, when you renew the blaster certificate, the expiry date of the new certificate will be harmonized with that of the General Explosives Permit issued by the Sureté du Québec. Applications for renewal of the General Explosives Permit must still be made to the Sureté du Québec. However, it is no longer necessary to present your PGE to the CCQ with your application for renewal of your blaster certificate. The CCQ verifies directly with the SQ whether the applicant has a valid GEP.
