Proposed regulation to amend the Regulation to amend the Safety Code

On 13 July 2022, the proposed regulation amending the Regulation to amend the Safety Code was published in the Gazette officielle du Québec in order to invite public comments.

This proposed regulation would postpone, from 2 December 2022 to 2 December 2024, the coming into force of the requirements relating to the installation of sprinklers in private seniors’ residences, provided for by the Regulation to amend the Safety Code, approved by Order in Council 1035-2015 dated 18 November 2015 and amended by Order in Council 1213-2019 dated 11 December 2019. This postponement gives the owners of the residences additional time to complete the installation of sprinklers.

Date of publication: 13 July 2022
End of consultation period: 26 August 2022
