WANTED: Volunteers for Canadian Commission on Building & Fire Codes • June 2017

Date Posted: June 27, 2017 - Date Ends: December 31, 2017
June 27, 2017 - There is an immediate need for volunteers to serve on either the Canadian Commission on Building & Fire Codes (CCBFC)—a senior committee responsible for the development of Codes Canada publications—or on one of CCBFC’s nine technical standing committee to replace membership vacancies for the current (2015-2020) code cycle.

Any applications received would also be considered for the next 5-year code cycle (2020-2025).

To have balanced representation on the committees, a pool of candidates is needed to represent all regions of Canada and all sectors of the construction industry that use, or benefit from, the national and provincial codes based on these models.

There is no remuneration, but the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) does reimburse expenses incurred in attending meetings.

CCBFC is an independent committee of volunteers established by NRC to develop and maintain the National Construction Codes, which serve as the basis for related provincial/territorial regulations.

The commission is also responsible for setting code development policy direction and overseeing the development process to ensure it is open, transparent and consensus-based.

CCBFC members are senior-level individuals who are expected to be broadly knowledgeable on code-related matters and policy considerations, and able to exercise objective judgments.

Standing committee members are expected to be knowledgeable and experienced on matters considered by the committee and must demonstrate the capacity to make independent decisions.

All members are selected for their individual knowledge and experience with the codes, not as delegates from a particular organization or interest group.

Interested? Submit your expression of interest using the online form on the Canadian Codes Centre section of the NRC website. Please indicate on which committee(s) you are interested in serving, provide a 120-word summary of your relevant experience and attach/append your resume.
