Proposed Code Changes – Message from the BSSB


I am writing to notify you of further proposed changes to the British Columbia Building Code (BC Code).

For your review and feedback, 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 our website. 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 our 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

Please share this information as appropriate with others in your organization. Thank you for participating in this process.
