Public review on proposed changes to the National Model Construction Codes

November 4, 2013 | By HPAC Magazine

The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) invites Code users and stakeholders to participate in the review of proposed changes to the following National Model Construction Codes: National Building Code of Canada 2010 (NBC); National Fire Code of Canada 2010 (NFC); National Plumbing Code of Canada 2010 (NPC); and National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 2011 (NECB). The purpose of this public review is to: provide Code users and stakeholders with a detailed look at proposed technical changes, and to seek comment on each proposed technical change as to whether it should be approved, altered, or rejected. CCBFC will review every comment that is received by December 13, 2013. The committees will then either withdraw the proposed change; recommend that it be reviewed further for future consideration as a proposed change; or recommend that it be approved by the CCBFC, with or without modification. If approved by the CCBFC, the technical changes will be published in the 2015 editions of the National Model Construction Codes.
