This document, published by NRC in collaboration with the Régie du bâtiment du Québec, includes the amendments to Chapter III, Plumbing, of the Construction Code, as well as an amended National Plumbing Code of Canada 2005 (NPC). The amended NPC clearly indicates to readers the 180 changes adopted by Quebec, which apply to the construction or renovation of buildings in that province.
As in the case of the NPC, an objective-based approach was used to prepare Chapter III, Plumbing. The majority of the Code provisions are linked to objectives that describe the overall goals that the provisions are intended to achieve and to functional statements that describe conditions that help satisfy the objectives. This new information allows for flexibility by helping users evaluate alternative solutions to acceptable solutions described in the Code.
