Food Truck Inspections

Food trucks and other Mobile Outdoor Food Service Units (MOFSU) wishing to operate in the Township of Langley must pass an annual fire inspection through the Greater Vancouver Fire Chief’s Association (GVFCA) inspection program.

The information below is provided to guide food truck and MOFSU vendors on how to book and prepare for an inspection with the Township of Langley Fire Department.

Before booking an inspection

Vendors should review the GVFCA Safety Requirements and ensure they have all applicable certifications. Under the Safety Standards Act, this includes a certified inspection tag verifying that gas and electrical operation has been approved.

Mobile food trucks, trailers and/or carts that arrive for an inspection without a certified inspection tag displayed will not be able to proceed with the inspection.

Inspections must take place at least two weeks prior to the event/date you plan to operate.

After an inspection

Upon passing inspection, compliant food trucks/MOFSU will be issued a Lower Mainland Food Vendor Sticker (decal), indicating that all relevant fire and life safety requirements were met at the time of inspection.

Please note that obtaining a decal does not exempt vendors from complying with other municipal bylaw requirements related to Business Licensing, Zoning and other applicable regulations.

Vendors only require one decal to operate in all municipalities that are part of the GVFCA inspection program, spanning from Whistler to Chilliwack. Decals are issued annually and can be obtained from any participating fire department.
