12 June Pennsylvania

State of Pennsylvania

The Mayor of Philadelphia enacts Bill to adopt the 2017 NEC and 2018 I-Codes on October 1, 2018 as part of Philadelphia's Building Code June 11, 2018.

Philadelphia moves to the 2017 NEC and 2018 I-Codes ahead of the State's Uniform Construction Code, UCC. Adoption will be October 1, 2018.

The Statute for the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code (UCC) which was amended and passed by the Legislature in 2017 allowed the City of Philadelphia to move forward to the 2018 I-Codes as the State moves to the 2015 I-Codes as the Model code for the UCC. The City Council of Philadelphia passed Bill No. 180176 and was signed by the Mayor on June 6, 2018 to adopt the 2018 I-Codes and the 2017 National Electrical Code on October 1, 2018.
