The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) is inviting Code users and stakeholders to participate in the review of proposed changes to the National Model Codes.

A national public review took place from September 29 to November 28, 2008 on proposed changes to the following National Model Codes:

  • the National Building Code of Canada 2005 (NBC)
  • the National Fire Code of Canada 2005 (NFC), and
  • the National Plumbing Code of Canada 2005 (NPC)

The purpose of this public review is to:

  • provide Code users and stakeholders with a detailed look at proposed technical changes, and
  • seek comment on each proposed technical change as to whether it should be approved, altered, or rejected.

The public review closed on November 28, 2008, after which comments will no longer be accepted. The relevant standing committees of the CCBFC will review every comment that was received up to that date. The standing committees will then either withdraw the 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.
