Types of codes available
We offer codes and regulatory tools that can help illuminate your company on the policy governing specific industries. We developed the Canadian Electrical Code, which establish regulations for the installation, testing, distribution, transmission and inspection of electrical products, along with many other guidelines. Covering seven different types of gas, our fuel codes detail the proper installation, handling and operation of fuel and its related equipment and components. Other codes dictate the proper procedures for bridge design, elevators, refrigeration and more. We also publish widely used codes, such as the National Fire Code, National Energy Code for Buildings, National Building Code and more.
