Edmonton, ALTA — The National Plumbing Code of Canada (NPC) officially takes effect in Alberta on April 1. It will be applied throughout the province.
There are currently no Alberta-specific technical variations or changes to the NPC 2020. “The Alberta government worked closely with industry, municipal associations, and technical experts across the province to determine if Alberta needed to modify anything from the NPC 2020 publication,” according to the official report.
In recent years, Alberta enabled its timely code adoption policy, which means that all national or international code changes would come into force one year after its publication.
