Final Public Review of Canadian National Model Codes Announced

The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) invites industry professionals to take part in the winter 2020 public review of proposed changes to the 2015 editions of the National Building, Fire, and Plumbing Codes and the National Energy Code for Buildings.

You can view the proposed changes here, but you must sign in to CSA Communities to comment. The deadline to comment is March 13, 2020.

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considered and to seek comments as to whether proposed changes should proceed as proposed, or be edited, revised, or withdrawn.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 CCBFC and will be published by the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in the 2020 editions of the Codes Canada publications.

This final public review of the 2015 code cycle focuses on changes being proposed to the 2015 editions of the National Building Code (NBC), the National Fire Code (NFC),the National Plumbing Codes (NPC), the National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB) and updates to referenced standards.
