The accessibility standards set out the requirements for the safe design of accessible and barrier-free environments regulated under the Safety Codes Act. We work in partnership with the Safety Codes Council to coordinate and encourage barrier-free design and access for any thing, process or activity regulated under the Act.

Barrier-Free Design Guide

In partnership with the Barrier-Free Sub-Council of the Safety Codes Council, we have developed the Barrier-Free Design Guide to provide further interpretation and understanding of accessibility requirements under Section 3.8 of the current Alberta Building Code.

A copy of the guide is available for a free download in pdf from the Safety Codes Council on their Code Books & Guides page.

Part 10 renovations

The following permit application is for Alberta green labels for existing Part 10 units undergoing renovations.

Renovations to certified structures in situ require applicable permits from the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), as the structure is no longer under the original certification due to any modifications from the original construction. The contractor is to request green labels from Municipal Affairs, the labels will be provided to the AHJ for placing during final inspection.

Alberta green label will continue because there is no current program that covers renovations to certified structures within the factory. Factories certified under CSA A277 will be recognized for in factory renovations.
