In accordance with the requirements of Act 45 of 1999 as amended, the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code (UCC) Review and Advisory Council (RAC) initiated review of the 2018 I-Codes on May 14, 2019. On April 29, 2021, the RAC submitted their report to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry which details the results of this voting process, thus ending this review period. The code provisions that were adopted during this process will take effect in the first quarter of 2022 (official effective date to be confirmed). This session will review the process and timeline that the RAC executed, discuss the implications leading up to the 2022 effective date of these changes, and outline ways to get involved with future code review cycles.
