Public Review Open on Proposed Changes to the 2010 National Model Construction CodesOctober 28th, 2013 by DWM Magazine
The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) has opened the fall 2013 public review of proposed changes to the 2010 National Model Construction Codes.
The National Model Construction Codes, comprising the National Building, Fire, Plumbing and Energy Codes, are model codes developed by the CCBFC that the provinces and territories can adopt as is, or with modifications, as part of their building, fire and plumbing regulations.
The public review is one of the principal steps in the process for updating national code documents, providing a nation-wide forum where anyone can review and comment on the changes proposed. Following the review, CCBFC Standing Committees will consider all comments and make final recommendations on each proposed change. Subject to approval by the CCBFC, the final changes will be published by NRC in the 2015 editions of the National Model Construction Codes.
The public review will run from October 15 until December 13, 2013, on the National Codes Web site, www.nationalcodes.nrc.gc.ca.
