The Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture is accepting proposals for the “2020 National Building Code Review” project. The project objective is to conduct a review of the 2020 National Building Code and related Fire Code requirements for farm buildings to identify the impacts on Nova Scotia agriculture considering but not limited to safety, climatic data, and economic impact. The review must include engagement with the industry to gain a comprehensive understanding of its impacts on new builds, renovations, and maintenance in the coming years.

The goal is to ensure that the 2020 National Building Code and Fire Code is optimized to support the diverse needs of the agricultural community while promoting safety, sustainability, economic growth, and functional efficiency. The findings will be used to inform policy decisions, enhance safety standards for Nova Scotia farms, and identify the resources needed to help farms understand these policies.
