Deadline for Carbon Monoxide Requirements for Condos with Six Units or Less was April 15, 2015 – Is Your Condo Compliant?
The mandatory carbon monoxide (‘CO’) enforcement deadline for condos and other residential buildings with six units or less in Ontario was April 15, 2015. All affected condos must now be compliant.
The CO requirements came into effect with a new regulation that updated Ontario’s Fire Code on October 15, 2014. However, the regulation included phase in periods for the requirements, depending on the size of the building. For larger residential buildings with more than six units, the deadline to comply with the new CO requirements is October 15, 2015.
You can learn more about the requirements in our November 6, 2014 blog, ‘New Requirements for Carbon Monoxide Detectors’. You can also find more information on the website of the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs and the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services website.
