The Standards Council of Canada expanded the scope of accreditation for the International Codes Council Evaluation Service, which performs technical evaluations of building products, components, methods and materials to provide evidence that products and systems meet requirements of codes and technical standards.

ICC-ES can now evaluate product classifications to the provisions of standards referenced by the National Building Code of Canada; ICC-ES report and listing holders can apply for recognition that will allow their products to be used throughout the Canadian territories. This latest scope expansion includes windows and doors.

“This is great news for many manufacturers seeking Canadian distribution for their building and plumbing products, components and systems,” says David Pereg, P.E., ICC-ES quality systems director. "Canada is an attractive and robust market and ICC-ES’ ability to provide a wide range of product certifications for Canada will greatly benefit ICC-ES customers. We are proud to be able to continually roll out new options that help our customers succeed.”
