O. Reg. 350/06
Regulation - LGIC
Bill or Act:
Building Code Act
Summary of Decision:
O. Reg. 332/12 (Building Code) was filed on November 2, 2012 and is available on e-Laws, Ontario's online database of statutes and regulations.
February 23, 2011
Summary of Proposal:
Potential changes to the current Building Code under the proposed regulation include the following:
The potential changes would reference the new national standard for testing wastewater residential treatment technologies established by the Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ). This reference would replace the performance criteria for treatment units set out in the current Building Code, and the list of treatment units set out in Supplementary Standard SB-5 which are deemed to meet these Code requirements. Specifically, criteria for secondary treatment units would be replaced with Levels 2 and 3 of the BNQ standard, while criteria for tertiary treatment units would be replaced with Level 4 of the BNQ standard. In addition, these units would be required to meet a given effluent disinfection standard in the BNQ with a given level being determined by the design of the dispersal bed.
