Where can I get an application?

If you have a credit card, you can complete and submit an application and $200 non-refundable application processing fee over the Internet by clicking on the following link for the new NSC Safety Certificate On-line Application. Priority will be given to applications completed on-line.

The application has been built to be fully compatible with Internet Explorer 6.0 and you will also need Adobe Acrobat Reader. The application may work other browsers but has not been tested.

Alternatively, you can get a copy of the application package by:

  • completing the application on your computer and printing the hard-copy (see instructions below)

Simply use the application and click CANCEL when you arrive at the payment screen. On the next screen, click on PRINT PREVIEW to generate a .PDF version of the completed application, print out a hard-copy (i.e., paper copy) of the completed application and submit this print-out, all supporting documents and the $200 non-refundable application processing fee to the National Safety Code Office.
