In consultation

Draft regulations are published in the Gazette officielle du Québec prior to their adoption in order to obtain the public’s comments, which will then be analyzed by the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ).

Proposed regulation modifying Chapter I, Building, of the Construction Code

On November 24, 2021, the proposed regulation modifying Chapter I, Building, of the Construction Code was published in the Gazette officielle du Québec in order to solicit public comments.

This proposed regulation is presented in conjunction with the update to Chapiter I, Building, of the Code, in anticipation of the adoption of the 2015 edition of the National Building Code (NBC), including the Quebec amendments, whose effective date will be January 8, 2022.

The proposal was drafted in response to comments from public health authorities by proposing to extend protective measures against radon gas throughout Quebec. It aims to enhance protective measures against the infiltration of soil gases, particularly radon, into buildings subject to Part 9 of the National Building Code as adopted by the Construction Code (Chapter B-1.1, r. 2).

The proposed regulation will expand the reach of protective measures against soil gases within the scope of this update to the entirety of Quebec, by deleting the concept of “recognized hazard zones.”
