The Alberta Fire Code 2006 (AFC) sets out the technical provisions regulating:
- activities related to the construction, use or demolition of buildings and facilities
- the condition of specific elements of buildings and facilities
- the design or construction of specific elements of facilities related to certain hazards
- protection measures for the current or intended use of buildings.
The AFC 2006 complements the Alberta Building Code 2006, and both must be considered when constructing, renovating or maintaining buildings.
New information has been added to the AFC 2006 to make it clearer, easier to apply to existing buildings, and more accommodating to innovation. It explains the objectives that the Code's provisions are intended to achieve and describes the functions that a building or facility must perform to fulfill these objectives.
Application and intent statements are not available for this code.
