On May 1, 2018, the PA Uniform Construction Code (PA UCC) Reveiw and Advisory Council (RAC) submitted their required report to the Department of Labor and Industry Department adopting the majority of code provisions contained in the 2015 International Code Council (ICC) Model Codes.
The submission of the report to the Department signals the end of the RAC's re-review of all previously un-adopted code provisions contained in the 2012 and 2015 editions of the ICC Model Codes.
On October 1, 2018, new regulations will go into effect codifying the RAC report on the 2015 ICC Model Code re-review inclding the provisions of the 2014 National Electric Code.

102: 2015 IRC Highlights
This session will present some of the major code updates coming to Pennsylvania including: air tightness requirements and blower door testing, mechanical ventilation, framing requirements with decks, and more.
On October 1, 2018, Pennsylvania will be enforcing the majority of the 2015 International Code Council (ICC) Model Codes. Transitioning from the base 2009 codes to the 2015 versions means there will be a significant amount of changes in the enforceable code updates. While some updates are mostly administrative, some of them may warrant changes in building practices and design techniques.
There will be 2 additional topics covered - TBD.
