Have Your Say

Amendments are being proposed to the Building Code (O. Reg. 332/12) to clarify building officials’ ability to use remote inspection methods and to update the Building Code requirements to facilitate the construction of “tiny homes”.

Remote Inspections
The proposed amendment to the Building Code would clarify that building inspectors can inspect the construction of buildings through remote inspection methods as an alternative to physically attending the construction site.

The proposal would amend Article 1.3.5.3. of Division C of the Building Code.

Tiny Homes
The proposed amendment would clarify and provide requirements for a municipal building official to conduct off-site inspections of tiny homes.

The proposed amendment would include provisions identifying which building department is responsible for undertaking permit review and inspections for “tiny homes” in those situations where the construction and final location of the building are in different municipalities.

The proposal would amend Division C of the Building Code.
