NATIONAL BUILDING CODE OF CANADA REVISIONS AND ERRATA. January Incorporates emergency revisions published in January , June. The Associate Committee on the National Building Code of Canada has recently released the National Building Code of Canada , the Canadian Plumbing. We asked last week for your comments on the National Building Code (NBC). There's a Steve Payne is the editor of Canadian Contractor magazine. All posts .

If ignorance of the law is no excuse, then there is no excuse for withholding the information needed to manufacture a compliant system!

I use it regularly in my FR-EN translation work mostly architectural drawing analyses for conformity with the code, so I have to get the English wording right. Yes, we should be able to access the Code for free.

Seriously, leave it to government beauracracy to make regulations and then make you pay to see what they are. If you read what it does in the act that created it , you may understand what may play a part in it. The funds that it makes goes back to the NRC to make up to date building models, and fire safety models. The same goes for the Canadian Association of Standards.

It would be nice to see them to allow apprentices access to these via their apprenticeship number at a discounted rate. I am an architect in Scotland.

Hard copies are charged for. Hope this may be of assistance to those preparing their arguments for easy access. Robin, thanks for reading us in Scotland, and for your information on the free building standards portal over there. And there it is…. It is important that Canadians have access to important regulations pertaining to safety.

What goes with the Ontario building code and the Ontario Electrical Code?? Why should we pay to get information on public safety developed with tax payer money? As a student I am only able to access the national building code at school.

Having free access to the Code for the duration of study for students would allow a more thorough understanding of the material.

The free dissemination of the NBC will have a positive effect on the building industry increasing compliance that would more than compensate the government for the costs of research and publishing. I believe that free access will help promote quality in the trades and alleviate a burden for small to medium sized builders. As taxpayers, we paid for research and maintenance of various boards and research facilities.

We do not have access to this information, having paid for it countless times over. When will this gouging of honest, hard working Canadians ever end.

A constant source of revenue from hundreds of various conduits, to maintain 6 figure salary of such indifferent bureaucrats.

Some of which, could care less about this country and those who support the good for which it used to stand for. This reckless abandonment of the christian values we have held dear and treasured will certainly result in our ultimate demise. This is shown to be evident, in many recent ongoing, within some corrupt elements of those in positions of authority.

Need only watch the evening news. When does this gouging ever end. God help us.

Yes I feel it infringes on my rights as a citizen to not make building code available to a person planning a new construction. I feel it nothing less than a money grab and some power hungry inspector will tell you falsely something is code and you have no way of telling right or wrong without paying for something temporarily.

This should be changed. It is absolutely ludicrous that this information must be paid for and most especially at such a high price. We pay enough taxes and downloadable information costs very little to provide. The price is high yes. Part of any competent carpenters tool bag.

If the building codes have been written by government. We as tax payers have already downloadd every single code and law book ever made. It should all be free. Its our right.

People are more likely to not check the standards and do a job wrong. I agree that anyone should have free access to the National Building Code.

It is ridicules that anyone should have to pay for it. When real caring and responsible politics became obsolete, we the public, can only be left with apparent economic terrorists using the laws in majority style to protect them.

For these terrorists, the tax vacuum machine never ends, and soon they want to tax the air, called carbon tax, how far these crooks will go?

I am a homeowner in dispute with my contractor over workmanship. How is a consumer, let alone a contractor, supposed to afford this?

Complete Sham!!!

I am a flooring contractor, no government issued regulation document should cost the public money! This should not be allowed.

They make lots of money elsewhere taxing and such. This safety related document should not be locked up with a dollar price tag. Complete sham!! I ran into this issue recently and have to say i was surprised to find that i was actually expected to PAY to be able to access building codes.

If these codes are legislated and enforceable by law, how can they not be public domain?

Without public access, that leaves everyone to the mercy of contractors and inspectors, with no way to know if what they are being told is factual, minus paying hundreds for a code book that most people will only use once or twice in a lifetime. Issuance of the Building Codes become a very good business for those, who is responsible for their publishing I believe this is our Government and their institutions.

This is multi million dollar business for the minor changes, they are doing. Also consider, that these codes still have some major mistakes, like for example design wind load for Vancouver: For example first Building Code in Canada was issued in or Another sample is Washington State in US. The Code available on-line for anybody want to watch it.

I think it is absurd that we are held to a standard but unless we pay the government hundreds of dollars, we will not be allowed to know what that standard is. You are held to a standard which is not readily accessible to you but if you fail to meet the standard you are held financially responsible.

National Building Code should be available online, free of charge!

I agree with Mr. I would think that this information would be cheaper or free with all of the taxes we, as small business owners, have to pay.

The introduction of a provincial Building Code Act and a provincial Building Code addressed this problem by providing for uniform construction standards across Ontario. Quebec[ edit ] The Building Act provides for the adoption of a Construction Code and a Safety Code for buildings, equipment intended for use by the public, and electric, plumbing, and pressure installations as well as installations intended to use, store, or distribute gas. Whereas the Construction Code applies to plan and estimate designers architects, engineers, technologists and contractors, the Safety Code is intended for owners of buildings, equipment, and facilities.

These two codes are adopted chapter by chapter and are progressively replacing the seven laws and thirty-odd regulations that were previously in effect.

The goal of this process is, obviously, to simplify regulations, but also to better define the responsibilities of owners and construction professionals.
