Ottawa, ON — The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) is seeking code users and stakeholders to participate in the fall 2022 public review of proposed changes to the National Model Codes, which includes the National Building Code of Canada (NBC) 2020, the National Fire Code of Canada (NFC) 2020, the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings (NECB) 2020, and the National Plumbing Code of Canada (NPC) 2020.
Participants can provide feedback on the proposed changes until Dec. 23. Following the public review, all comments received will be considered by the relevant code development committees, and recommendations on the proposed changes will be made.
If approved, the changes will be included in the 2025 editions of the National Model Codes.
The CCBFC is a committee of volunteers appointed by the National Research Council of Canada responsible for developing the National Model Codes, developed on a five-year cycle.
