In June 2019, the Building and Safety Standards Branch began a public review of the following proposed changes to the British Columbia Building Code (BC Code): Design and Construction of Secondary Suites, Energy Step Code for Large Buildings in Cold Climates and Public Sector Buildings, as well as Lighting of Recycling and Garbage Rooms.
There are now further proposed changes to the BC Code. Newly developed proposals for changes to carbon monoxide detectors and alarms, as well as roof-top enclosures and roof-top occupancy requirements are now available on their website for review and feedback. Please note this is entirely new code content not included in the invitation to the public review sent in June 2019.
A link to the updated survey is available on the provincial government website. The online public review will remain open until August 23, 2019.
If you have any questions about the proposed code changes or the survey, please email BSSB.firstname.lastname@example.org.
