AbstractBuilding safety control is an institutional delivery system involving more than building and spanning the era of man. The early development of the National Building Code of Canada is referred to as an example of a system aimed at safety through knowledge of performance. Three difficulties which have prevented the complete achievement of this goal are discussed. The goal is restated and, looking to the future, a hypothetical case is followed to illustrate what the implications are if such a system could be totally applied.
