AbstractExcellent progress is being made in the development of the objective-based codes, thanks to the hard work of many industry volunteers, who are collaborating with the provinces and territories, staff at NRC's Canadian Codes Centre and the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes. The first phase of the process, the exhaustive analysis of three of the model national codes (building, fire and plumbing codes) to determine the objective(s), intent(s) and application of each and every provision, was completed andsubjected to an external review. In the fall of 2002, portions of the database will periodically be posted on a public web site. The current plan is to publish the entire Intents Analysis database as a CD, for sale, beginning in February 2003.
