BC Building Code 2018

The BC Building Code (BCBC) is a provincial regulation that governs how new construction, building alterations, repairs and demolitions are completed. This code establishes minimum requirements for safety, health, accessibility, fire and structural protection of buildings and energy and water efficiency. It applies throughout the province except for some federal lands and the City of Vancouver.

The BC Codes are based on the model National Codes of Canada with some modifications specific to BC.

The British Columbia Code products are based on the Canadian model National Codes. The Province of British Columbia pays royalties for the use of the model National Codes which is incorporated into the pricing of the BC Code products.

The Canadian Government has indicated its intention for the National Code product to move to a royalty free model in the future (https://www.canada.ca/en/treasury-board-secretariat/news/2018/11/regulatory-cooperation-building-codes.html).

This change may affect the future price of the British Columbia code products. At this time there are no changes to the cost of BC Codes.
