Key elements from the updated explanatory booklet of Québec’s Electrical Code

On March 7th, 2022, the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ) updated its explanatory booklet to help the public understand the changes to electric vehicules regulations, i.e. to Chapter V, Electricity, of the Québec Construction Code.

The RBQ addresses the addition of chargers in multi-unit buildings and aims to facilitate access to electric vehicle (EV) charging. Recharge Véhicule Électrique (RVE) supports the RBQ’s new interpretations on the subject.

Several terms have been introduced to clarify the various electrical components, such as EVEMS and EVSE. In the document below, you’ll find a list of these terms and their definitions, as well as the key points to remember from this new interpretation of electricity regulations.
