The Code Study Committee selected by the South Carolina Building Codes Council will begin reviewing the 2015 International Codes and the 2014 National Electrical Code on July 7, 8 and 28, 2015. The meetings will begin at 10:30 AM in the Denny Auditorium located at the South Carolina Fire Academy. The Academy is located at 141 Monticello Trail, Columbia, SC 29203. An agenda will be published on the Building Codes Council website and will contain the meeting schedule. Proposed modifications to the updated codes that will be heard are available for your review here.
Also, the Building Codes Council is asking for volunteers to serve on the Specialty Committee during the adoption process. The Committee will consist of persons who qualify under South Carolina Regulation 8-246 which reads in part:
Specialty members will be selected to represent a segment of the construction industry that may be affected by a specific building code modification or to provide specialized knowledge to the Study Committee within his or her area of expertise. Specialty members will have full rights to participate and vote on any issue within their areas of expertise. Specialty members will be selected by the Council chair, vice chair and staff from a pool of volunteers and may consist of representatives of any segment of the construction industry, including specialized code enforcement officers and fire officials.
Anyone interested in serving as a specialty member is requested to send a brief resume to the Council Administrator, Roger Lowe, at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to: Roger Lowe, 110 Centerview Drive, Columbia, SC 29211 by June 30, 2015.
