Building Code Changes: Home-based Businesses

Written by Executive Director on . Posted in Business News

See notice below from the Office of the Fire Marshal regarding changes to the Building Code and home-based businesses.

Attention: Nova Scotia Building Code Users/Stakeholders

I am pleased to write to you with an update on changes to the Building Code Act Regulations that will benefit home‐based businesses in Nova Scotia.

Following extensive public consultation, changes came into effect on August 1, 2016 that exempt home based businesses from some of the rules in the regulations.

Home based businesses no larger than 25 per cent of the total floor area (50 m2) of a home that the business owner occupies will be exempt from certain parts of the Building Code Act Regulations intended for commercial spaces.

These exemptions include:

  •  Requirements including wider doors and a barrier-free entrance;
  •  Fire separations, loading, fire-rated doors with self-closures; and
  •  Additional washroom facilities.

These changes will bring clarity to business owners and Building Officials, and they will prevent undue regulatory burden for home based businesses.

Thank you,

Joe Rogers

Building Code Coordinator
