On December 15, 2021, the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry (L&I) filed the final-omitted regulations, updating chapters 401 and 403 of the PA UCC with the IRC. We expect this to be included on the agenda for IRC’s public meeting scheduled for January 20, 2022. Barring any changes, we are on target for the 2018 ICC codes as amended by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to go into effect on February 14, 2022. Details of the adoption, including sections that were excluded, or amended can be found at https://www.dli.pa.gov/ucc/Documents/ICC-Code-Review-2018-Final-Report.pdf
Please remember that in accordance with Section 304 (c) Prior permits, contracts, and construction, of Act 45 of 1999 as amended, subsection (4):
“Where a design or construction contract was signed before the effective date of regulations for a subsequent Uniform Construction Code or International Fuel Gas Code issued under this act, the permit may be issued under the Uniform Construction Code or International Fuel Gas Code in effect at the time the design or construction contract was signed if the permit is applied for within six months of the effective date of the regulation or the period specified by a municipal ordinance, whichever is less.”
