Public input wanted on proposed building code amendments

Nova Scotians are invited to provide written comments on proposed amendments to the Nova Scotia Building Code Regulations. The proposed changes to the regulations were released on August 14. The amendments are needed to adopt the national codes as the new minimum standards for construction in the province.

The deadline for public comments is Friday, September 29. The proposed changes are available at:
