Obtaining access to LEXIS

Whether you are entering your exemption applications on-line directly into LEXIS or submitting a group of XML files on-line through the Electronic Submission Framework (ESF), you need to be granted access to LEXIS.

To gain access, email the following information to Provincial.Log.Export.Analyst@gov.bc.ca

  1. The BCeID used to login to LEXIS
  2. The name, email address and telephone number
    • To confirm the correct BCeID
  3. The company name and ministry client number for the company to be linked to the BCeID
    • Many industry users will already have a client number. It can also be used for LEXIS

Once the information is processed you will receive an email notice stating your access to LEXIS is active.
