National Building Code of Canada Moves a Step Closer to Referencing ASTM E 2190

The Provincial and Territorial Policy Advisory Committee on Codes (PTPACC) to the National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) met November 18-19 and reviewed the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance's (IGMA) request for a reference to ASTM E 2190.

According to a press release issued by IGMA, PTPACC had no policy disagreement with the proposed change and the matter has now moved forward for review by the technical subcommittee. The technical subcommittee will review the change and report back to the full PTPACC if there are technical concerns. If no issues are raised the matter will then go before the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes for approval. This will take place either during the commission's meeting June 12-13, 2005, or by letter ballot.
