National Model Construction Codes Review

The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) would like to invite industry members to take part in a public review of proposed changes to the 2010 National Model Construction Codes. The codes – comprised of the national building, fire, plumbing and energy codes – are models developed by the CCBFC that provinces and territories can adopt as is, or with modifications, as part of their own building, fire and plumbing regulations. This public review, one of the principal steps in the process for updating national code documents, provides a nation-wide forum where anyone can comment on the changes proposed. The review will run from October 15 to December 13, 2013. Following the review, CCBFC standing committees will consider all comments and make final recommendations on each proposed change. Final changes, subject to CCBFC approval, will be published in 2015. To take part in the review, go online to www.nationalcodes.nrc.gc.ca.
