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.
