     Alberta Regulation 25/2003

     Safety Codes Act

     BUILDING CODE AMENDMENT REGULATION

     Filed:  February 19, 2003

Made by the Lieutenant Governor in Council (O.C. 43/2003) on February 19,
2003 pursuant to section 65 of the Safety Codes Act.


1   The Building Code Regulation (AR 50/98) is amended by this Regulation.


2   Section 1 is amended by adding "and as varied by this Regulation"
before "is declared".


3   The following is added after Section 1:

Variations
     1.1   The Alberta Building Code 1997 is varied as follows:

               (a)  in Sentence 4.1.7.2.(2) by striking out "with rise
to span ratios equal to or less than 1/10";

               (b)  in Sentence 9.4.2.4.(1) by striking out "may be
designed for a total specified load of 0.5 kPa" and substituting "shall be
designed for a total specified load of not less than 0.35 kPa";

               (c)  in Sentence 9.8.9.4.(2) by adding, "not
continuously supported by the riser," after "OSB";

               (d)  in Article 9.10.15.3. by adding the following after
Sentence (1):

                    (2)  Asbestos board used as a fire stop shall
conform to the requirements of Subsection 9.27.8.

               (e)  by repealing Sentence 9.25.2.2.(4);

               (f)  by adding the following after Appendix note A-9.4.:

                    A-9.4.2.4.(1) Specified Loads for Attics with
Limited Accessibility.  Typical residential roofs are framed with roof
trusses and the ceiling is insulated.

                    Residential trusses are placed at 600 mm on centre
with web members joining top and bottom chords.  Lateral web bracing is
installed perpendicular to the span of the trusses.  As a result, there is
limited room for movement inside the attic space or for storage of
material.  Access hatches are generally built to the minimum acceptable
dimensions of 500 mm by 700 mm, further limiting the size of material that
can be moved into the attic.

                    With exposed insulation in the attic, access is not
recommended unless protective clothing and breathing apparatus are worn.

                    As the attic space is considered to have no
occupancy, loading can be based on actual dead load.  In emergency
situations, or for the purpose of inspection, it is possible for a person
to access the attic without over-stressing the truss or causing damaging
deflection.

Disclaimer
               1.2   The Code declared in force in this Regulation, and
any codes and standards referenced in the Code, do not make or imply any
assurance or guarantee by the Crown with respect to the life expectancy,
durability or operating performance of materials, appliances, systems and
equipment referred to in the Code, codes or standards.


4   Section 3 is amended by striking out "June 1, 2003" and substituting
"March 1, 2013".

They are taken from the following pieces of legislation:

Civil Enforcement Regulation, (AR 276/95) sections 39 and 40
Alberta Rules of Court, Rules 470 to 481.1

Future payments to the clerk under this Garnishee Summons should be
accompanied by a copy of the back page of this Garnishee Summons and an
accounting.


Garnishee Summons (which does not attach employment earnings)
Within 15 days from being served with the Garnishee Summons, in triplicate
with a $25 compensation fee, you must do all of the following:

1.        Serve a copy of the Garnishee Summons on the debtor (personally
or by ordinary mail).



2.        Deliver to the Clerk of the Court a Garnishee's Response.  See

3.        Pay to the Clerk the lesser of

Summons, or

obligation to the Debtor

          minus $10 as a Garnishee compensation.

          Where the Garnishee Summons seeks to affect a joint
entitlement, you must pay to the Clerk, unless a court orders otherwise, an
amount equal to the total amount of the fund divided equally amongst all
the people with the joint entitlement.  A Garnishee Summons which seeks to
attach a joint deposit account only attaches a current obligation as
defined in the Civil Enforcement Act.



Garnishee Summons (which does not attach employment earnings) continued
The Garnishee's Response must contain as much of the following as is
applicable:

1.        (a)  A Certificate of Service on the Debtor (found on the back
of this document) stating that you have delivered a copy of the Garnishee
Summons to the Debtor, or

Garnishee Summons on the Debtor.

3.        The amount that you are paying to the Clerk.



4.        If you don't think that you have an obligation to pay the
Debtor that can be affected by the Garnishee Summons, please explain why.



5.        If you believe that the obligation that the Garnishee Summons
is trying to affect is (or may be) owed to someone other than the Debtor,
give the reasons for your belief and the name and address of that other
person.



6.        If you have already received another Garnishee Summons
regarding the same obligation and that Garnishee Summons is still in
effect, let the Clerk's office know in writing and give the QB Action
Number of the other Garnishee Summons.  The QB Action Number is on the
upper right of the back of the Garnishee Summons.



7.        Where the Garnishee Summons seeks to affect a joint
entitlement, the Garnishee's Response must contain the name of each person
who has the joint obligation with the Debtor and either




          (a)  the address of each person who has the joint obligation
with the Debtor, or

          (b)  a completed certificate of service stating that you have
served a copy of this Garnishee Summons on each person who has the joint
obligation with the Debtor.

          Note:     if it is a joint account, it is a one-time obligation.



8.        Where the Garnishee Summons has attached a future obligation,
that is, there is an amount that you must pay the Debtor in the future, the
Garnishee's Response must contain the following, if known:



          (a)  the date or dates on which the future obligation, or any
part of it, is expected to become payable,

          (b)  the amount expected to be payable on each date set out
above, and

          (c)  any conditions that must be met before the future
obligation will become payable.




          When the future obligation becomes payable, the Garnishee's
Response must set out

          (a)  the amount that is now payable, and

          (b)  the amount that you are paying to the Clerk.



Garnishee Summons (which attaches employment earnings)
Within 15 days from being served with the Garnishee Summons in triplicate
with a $25 compensation fee, you must do the following:



1.        Serve a copy of the Garnishee Summons on the Debtor (personally
or by ordinary mail).



2.        Deliver to the Clerk of the Court a Garnishee's Response.  See
below for what this must contain.



3.        Within 5 days after the end of the Debtor's last pay period for
months affected by the Garnishee Summons, pay to the Clerk the Debtor's net
pay less



          (a)  the Debtor's employment earnings exemption (see
Employment Earnings Exemptions listed below), and

          (b)  $10 as a Garnishee compensation.



Net pay means the Debtor's total earnings minus any amounts you are
required to deduct for income tax, Canada Pension contributions, and
employment insurance premiums.  Any other deductions are taken from the
debtor's exemption.



The Garnishee's Response must contain as much of the following as
applicable:

1.        Whether or not you employ the Debtor.

2.        How often you pay the Debtor.



3.        Either

          (a)  a Certificate of Service on the Debtor (found on the back
of this document) stating that you have delivered a copy of the Garnishee
Summons to the Debtor,

               OR

          (b)  a statement setting out why you could not serve the
Garnishee Summons on the Debtor.



Note:     Send the original Certificate of Service to the Clerk.



4.        If you have already received another Garnishee Summons against
the Debtor's employment earnings and that Garnishee Summons is still in
effect, let the Clerk's office know in writing and give the QB Action
Number of the other Garnishee Summons.  The QB Action Number is on the
upper right of the back of the Garnishee Summons.



At the end of the Debtor's last pay period for each month during which the
Garnishee Summons is in effect, you must deliver to the Clerk a written
statement setting out:



1.        the Debtor's total employment earnings for the pay periods that
ended during the month,

2.        the amounts deducted from total earnings to calculate the
Debtor's net pay for the month, and

3.        the number of the Debtor's dependants.



Employment Earnings Exemptions
Calculate the Debtor's monthly employment earnings exemption by adding
together:

1.        the Debtor's minimum exemption, and

2.        half the amount by which the Debtor's net pay exceeds this
minimum exemption.




For a Debtor with no dependants, the minimum employment earnings exemption
is $800 and the maximum is $2400.  The minimum and maximum employment
earnings exemption increases by $200 for each dependant.



A dependant is:

1.        a person identified as a dependant by Court Order,

2.        a person for whom the Debtor can claim a spousal amount on his
or her income tax,



3.        any child of the Debtor under 18 who lives with the Debtor, or

4.        any relative of the Debtor (or of the Debtor's spouse/spousal
equivalent) who lives with the Debtor and, because of mental or physical
infirmity, depends financially on the Debtor.



You are entitled to reply on, and act in accordance with, the Debtor's
written statement of the number of dependants he or she has.



You can get a worksheet from the Clerk's Office to help you calculate the
Debtor's employment earnings exemption.



When employment earnings are garnished for alimony or maintenance,
Maintenance Enforcement Act employment exemptions apply.  Refer to
Maintenance Enforcement Regulation for more information.



If you pay the Debtor's salary/wage more often than monthly, you can pay
the Clerk of the Court at the end of each pay period instead of at the end
of each month.
In this case, calculate the minimum and maximum employment exemption for
each pay period as follows:



1.        multiply the monthly exemption by the number of days in the pay
period, and 

2.        divide this number by 30.
