The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry’s Uniform Construction Code Review and Advisory Council (RAC) made the recommendation not to consider the 2012 I-Codes and keep in place the 2009 I-Codes which includes the International Building Code (IBC), Section 3109 on Swimming Pools and the International Residential Code (IRC), Appendix G. The 2008 NEC, section 680, is also in effect.
As part of the RAC’s review, a report submission is required by the council prior to the recommendation. There has been considerable pressure by lobbying groups in the state that the RAC needs to submit a written justification on each of the sections of the 2012 code. This will become very important as the new 2015 code will begin review shortly.
