Public review on proposed changes to the 2010 National Model Construction Codes starts September 8, 2014

The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) would like to invite your organization and its members—as important stakeholders in the development of the National Model Construction Codes—to take part in the fall 2014 public review of proposed changes to the 2010 National Model Construction Codes.

The National Model Construction Codes, comprising the National Building, Fire, Plumbing and Energy Codes, are model codes developed by the CCBFC that the provinces and territories can adopt as is, or with modifications, as part of their building, fire and plumbing regulations.

The public review is one of the principal steps in the process for updating national code documents, providing a nation-wide forum where anyone can review and comment on the changes proposed. Following the review, CCBFC Standing Committees will consider all comments and make final recommendations on each proposed change. Subject to approval by the CCBFC, the final changes will be published by NRC in the 2015 editions of the National Model Construction Codes.

The public review will run from September 8 until October 31, 2014 on the Public Review page of the NRC Web site.

The CCBFC wishes to thank your organization and its membership for contributing to the development of Canada’s National Model Construction Codes.

We would appreciate you forwarding this invitation to your membership and stakeholders so as to ensure the greatest possible awareness and participation.

For further information, please contact Anne Gribbon, Secretary to the CCBFC, at anne.gribbon@nrc-cnrc.gc.ca.
