IDC to submit commentary on proposed changes to the 2010 National Model Construction Codes

Published by Candis Green, November 29, 2013.

The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) is conducting a public review of proposed changes to the 2010 National Model Construction Codes.

The National Model Construction Codes, 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 2015 editions of the National Model Construction Codes.

IDC has put together a committee that will address the proposed changes and submit a formal commentary to the CCBFC. If you would like to participate in this initiative or have any review comments you would like IDC to consider as part of its submission, please submit to

The public review will run from until December 23, 2013 on the National Codes website,
