OTTAWA, Ontario — The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) is conducting its annual public review of proposed changes to the 2010 National Model Construction Codes until Dec. 13, 2013 on the National Codes website.

The purpose of this public review is to provide code users and stakeholders with a detailed look at changes being considered for inclusion in the 2015 editions of the National Model Construction Codes and seek comment on each one as to whether it should be approved, altered, or rejected. An explanation of the proposed changes, as well as instructions on how to submit comments, is provided on the website.

The proposed changes in this public review cover a variety of topics, including energy efficiency for buildings (building envelope; lighting; HVAC; service water heating); and water use efficiency.

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 in the 2015 editions of the National Model Construction Codes.
