The farm building requirements related to fire protection, structural design and dangerous goods are being discussed for publication in the 2020 editions of the NBC and NFC. The fire and structural requirements in the National Farm Building Code have not been reviewed or revised since the 1995 edition and are increasingly in conflict with the latest edition of the Codes.
The National Farm Building Code of Canada (NFBC) 1995 provides relaxations of the requirements in the National Building Code (NBC) to address the particular needs of farm buildings. It applies to farm buildings of low human occupancy and contains minimum requirements on matters affecting human health, fire safety and structural sufficiency. All dwelling units on a farm, as well as farm buildings that do not qualify as a "low human occupancy" (i.e. an occupant load of not more than one person for each 40 m2) must comply with the NBC or the applicable provincial code.
