Record of Site Condition

The Record of Site Condition is a document which summarizes the environmental condition of a property as determined by a Qualified Person (QP) by conducting a Phase 1 ESA, a Phase 2 ESA (if appropriate) and confirmatory sampling (in the case of site cleanup).

The reasons for a Record of Site Condition:

  • A Record of Site Condition is required for the municipality to issue a building permit
  • Is mandatory in situations of land use change to a more ‘sensitive’ use
    • Changing from industrial use to residential use
    • The addition of residential to a commercial site
