Public Review on the Proposed Changes to the 2015 editions of the Codes Canada publications

November 9, 2017 • Written by

Public review on proposed changes to the 2015 editions of Codes Canada publications takes place from November 6, 2017 to January 2, 2018

The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) would like to invite your organization and its members—as important stakeholders in the development of Codes Canada publications—to take part in the fall 2017 public review of proposed changes to the 2015 national model codes.

Codes Canada publications, 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 2020 editions of Codes Canada publications.

The public review will run from November 6, 2017 to January 2, 2018 on the Codes Canada Web site,  

This second 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) and the National Plumbing Codes (NPC). With an interim change planned for publication in late 2017, no changes are being proposed for the National Energy Code for Buildings  this public review.

The CCBFC wishes to thank your organization and its membership for contributing to the development of Codes Canada publications.

 We would appreciate you forwarding this invitation to your membership and stakeholders so as to ensure the greatest possible awareness and participation.

For further information, please contact Anne Gribbon, Secretary to the CCBFC, at
