Items of note:
- Mandatory code update training is not required for updates to the 2019 Alberta editions of the National Building Code and National Fire Code or to the 2017 edition of the National Energy Code for Buildings.
- While the new edition of the fire code applies to construction under the new building code, both the building and energy efficiency codes require a period of transition so that existing construction and plans are not unreasonably disrupted.
- The National Building and National Fire Codes – 2019 Alberta Editions are not yet available for purchase. Once they become available, they can be purchased from the National Research Council (NRC).
