Building Regulatory System Submission to Government

Recently, the provincial Office of Housing and Construction Standards, part of the B.C. Ministry of Energy’s Building and Safety Standards Branch, requested the AIBC’s feedback on a series of government white papers concerning the province’s building regulatory system (see March 13 eNews). These white papers covered modernization of the building regulatory system, certification of local building officials, and a levy on construction to support the BC Building Code. AIBC members were invited to share their own comments, and the institute sought input from its Regulatory Coordination Committee volunteers with expertise in these areas. Given the importance of the issues and the benefit of a stronger, united response, the decision was made to collaborate with our colleagues at the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia (APEGBC) to produce a joint submission, signed by the respective presidents and executive directors. The finalized document can be viewed here.
