Codes Development System Review
The Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes (CCBFC) and the Provincial/Territorial Policy Advisory Committee on Codes (PTPACC) jointly requested a performance review of the coordinated development system for the National Construction Codes (Codes). For the purpose of this performance review, the CCBFC and PTPACC jointly struck the Joint Task Group on Code Development System Review (JTG CDSR) in order to provide for balanced input. The JTG published its first phase report in 2016 focusing on the coordinated code development system.
The current phase of the JTG CDSR work deals with the code development process. The JTG CDSR has made significant progress in reviewing each step of the process from an internal lens as well as from an external perspective. However, to round up and complete the review of the process, the JTG CDSR wishes to have the input from external participants in the national code development process.
The JTG CDSR will incorporate the feedback from the survey into its final report and consider the feedback when forming its final recommendations to the CCBFC in the fall of 2019.
The JTG CDSR agreed to use a survey to gain a more precise view of stakeholders’ perceptions of the code development system and its processes. The results will support the continuous improvement of the code development system into a transparent, open, evidence-based system that promotes and facilitates stakeholder engagement.
The survey questions cover five aspects of the stakeholder’s experience:
- Stakeholder function
- Completing and submitting Code Change Requests (CCRs)
- Participation in public reviews
- Membership on the CCBFC and its SCs and TGs
- Participation as an observer
