The public review of the first set of proposed changes to the 2020 editions of the National Model Codes—the National Building Code of Canada, the National Fire Code of Canada, the National Plumbing Code of Canada and the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings—is now open. The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) invites code users, stakeholders and the public to visit the CCBFC's website to review the proposed changes and provide feedback.
The public review will take place from October 24, 2022 until December 23, 2022.
After the review period closes, members of the relevant code development committees will review comments and make recommendations on the proposed changes. If approved, the code changes will be included in the 2025 editions of the National Model Codes, which are published by the National Research Council of Canada.
Public reviews for future sets of proposed changes to the 2020 editions of the Codes will also take place in 2023 and 2024.
Participate now to have your say in the code development process!
