Public Consultation on Proposed Changes to the Fire Code Relating to Hazardous Extraction Operations in All Buildings and to Hazardous Cannabis Extraction Operations in Farm Buildings

Bulletin #006/18

October 22, 2018

The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM) is inviting public comment on proposed changes to the Fire Code that will apply to floor areas or portions of floor areas containing hazardous extraction operations.  In farm buildings, the requirements would apply where hazardous extraction operations specifically pertain to cannabis processing. 

These proposed amendments were supported in principle by a Technical Advisory Committee comprised of various stakeholder groups that was convened by the OFMEM as part of the consultation process.   

Public comments must be submitted before the consultation period ends on November 21, 2018.   

Your participation is important and encouraged as feedback will help guide changes to the Fire Code.

Summaries of the proposed amendments and instructions on how to provide comments are available on the Ontario Regulatory Registry at:  https://www.ontariocanada.com/registry/view.do?postingId=26746&language=en
