SAC members are invited to take part in the review of 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 is open now and will run on the Codes Canada webpage until December 23, 2019.
The purpose of the public review is to provide you and stakeholders the model codes with a detailed look at the changes considered and to seek comments as to whether proposed changes should proceed, be edited, revised or withdrawn.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.
A final national public review will take place from January 13 – March 13, 2020 which will include changes being proposed to the National Building Code Section 9.36 and the National Energy Code for Buildings, as well as changes related to accessibility, large farm buildings and updates to referenced standards.
