The BC Fire Code states: Unless otherwise specified, the owner or owners authorized agent is responsible for carrying out the Provisions of this code. (BCFC 22.214.171.124)
This means that the owner is responsible for maintaining the life safety and fire protection systems in his building according to the BC Fire Code. It also means that owners are legally responsible and liable for any failure to comply with the BCFC. This requires an understanding of the BC Fire Code and what their responsibilities are.
If you are a building owner, where can you go to find accurate answers to your questions about what your responsibilities are?
