* STANDATA that are "Not reissued" means that they have been evaluated by Alberta Municipal Affairs and Building Technical Council and have been deemed to be unnecessary under the new code. The reasons for not reissuing are specific to each STANDATA, such as not being a relevant issue anymore or that the issue is covered by current code requirments. These STANDATA are still valid for determining code compliance of existing buildings.
