New Ontario Building Code (OBC) (see Section 188.8.131.52) stipulates that newly-constructed buildings that are required to be monitored for fire by a third party shall be monitored “by way of…signals to a central station conforming to CAN/ULC-S561”
The new Ontario Building Code applies to newly constructed buildings, and existing buildings undergoing renovations or additions (see Section 184.108.40.206). The changes forthcoming to the Ontario Fire Code will cover the fire alarm monitoring specifications of existing buildings.
Amendments to the National Building and Fire Codes, released in 2005, will now require such buildings to be monitored in accordance with CAN/ULC-S561-03 standards.
