Comments submitted during this public period will be later reviewed by the relevant committees of the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC).  If approved by the CCBFC, the technical changes will be published in the 2020 edition of National Building Code.

HRAI encourages members to review the proposed technical changes and notify HRAI of any concerns.
