The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes invites interested parties to take part in a final opportunity for public review of the proposed changes to the 2015 editions of the National Building Code, the National Fire Code, the National Plumbing Code and the National Energy Code for Buildings. The review will run on the Codes Canada webpage from October 22 to December 23, 2019. Once the public review period begins, more information will be available online, including explanations about the proposed changes and instructions on how to submit comments.
The purpose of the public review is to provide users of the model codes and stakeholders with a detailed look at the changes being considered and to seek comments as to whether proposed changes should proceed as proposed, or be edited, revised or withdrawn. The responsible standing committee will consider each comment in its recommendations on the proposed changes. The final changes are subject to approval by the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes and will be published by the National Research Council of Canada in the 2020 editions of the Codes Canada publications.
Mark your calendar now for the fall public review of proposed changes to the 2015 editions of the National Building, Fire, and Plumbing codes and the National Energy Code for Buildings from October 22, 2019 to December 23, 2019.
We look forward to your participation in this important process to provide input on documents that serve as the basis for most provincial and territorial building, energy and safety regulations in Canada.
