Please note there exists an error, in the Ontario Fire Code February 2020 compendium version, of significance related to the standards to be referenced in Part 6.

In the fire code compendium, page 106 of Div. B- under NFPA 25 you will see the year 2011 showing- this is the error. It should read 2014.

There were significant change made to the standard in 2014 which requires more testing requirements in addition to removing other sections of the standard.

Please also share this with your clients. The OFM is now aware of the error and will be fixing it next round. This error in printed law can cause issues for anyone enforcing the provisions of part 6 of the code using the wrong version of the referenced standard.
