EIN Technical Safety BC 400

May 7, 2021

Technical Safety BC has reviewed the 2021 Canadian Electrical Code (CE Code) to assess the impacts of the Code changes for the province of BC, and has drafted a recommendation to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing on its suitability for provincial adoption. Before submitting our recommendation, they are consulting with industry and anyone with an interest to ensure they have accurately assessed the impacts of these changes, and to gather any additional feedback on the changes that should be considered.
