What happens to the comments?

For the latest information about code changes and provisions in the National Model Codes or details about the National Model Codes development system, please visit the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes website.

A committee will review all comments on the proposed changes and take one of the following actions:

  • recommend that the CCBFC approve the change as originally proposed
  • make editorial changes that do not alter the technical content and then recommend approval by the CCBFC
  • revise the change and recommend it for approval, if, in the view of the Standing Committee, the action would not result in substantial adverse reaction from the public
  • withdraw the change but consider it for possible re-submission in revised form in a future public review, or
  • withdraw the change.
