CBHCC looks for volunteers to develop 2030 National Model Codes

CBHCC looks for volunteers to develop 2030 National Model Codes

OTTAWA – The Canadian Board for Harmonized Construction Codes (CBHCC) is looking for volunteers to help develop the 2030 editions of the National Model Codes.

Volunteers would serve on code development committees and work would include topics such as accessibility, climate change mitigation and adaptation, alterations to existing buildings, housing supply, harmonization, performance-based solutions and other targeted technical topics and maintenance tasks, a release said.

“Committee volunteers are critical to Canada’s code development process. Without the technical expertise and experience of our volunteers, this important work would not be possible. Volunteering on code development committees is a great opportunity to make valuable contributions to the National Model Codes,” CBHCC co-chair Jun’ichi Jensen said in a statement.

CBHCC is looking for volunteers from the regulatory community, industry, manufacturers, material production and supply, standard development organizations, researchers, academia and others with an interest in code development, the release said.

Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis in preparation for the 2030 code cycle launch in January 2025, the release said, and the CBHCC’s Standing Codes Coordination Committee, which supports information sharing between code development committees will be established first, anticipated for summer 2024.

The CBHCC is aiming to establish code development committees in fall 2024 with task forces struck on an as-needed basis before technical work begins in 2025.

Those interested in volunteering can apply through the CBHCC website before May 6. More information on volunteering is available by contacting the CBHCC Secretary.

Canada’s National Model Codes include the National Building Code of Canada, the National Fire Code of Canada, the National Plumbing Code of Canada, the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings, and the National Farm Building Code of Canada (last published in 1995). The codes are developed on an approximate five-year cycle.
