The SCAC has also recommended that the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) Board adopt the 2012 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code (ISPSC), with 2014 Georgia Amendments, as a mandatory statewide code.

If approved by the Board, the effective date of the new mandatory code will be January 1, 2017. The notice of intent and synopsis of the proposed code update can be viewed HERE.
