AbstractSome code users have expressed concern that objective-based codes will bring increased pressure to accept materials, products and designs for buildings that do not conform to the code. Other countries that have reformed their national codes have not seen a significant increase in this pressure and the same outcome can be expected in Canada. However, let?s look at the situation. Building designs, products and construction approaches are currently accepted or approved by authorities using a variety of methods. An experienced building official likely uses both informal and formal approaches to evaluating compliance with the code. These are unlikely to change with the introduction of objective-based codes.
