23 February Virginia


State of Virginia

The Commonwealth of Virginia has begun the process of updating to the 2015 Virginia Codes.  New for the 2015 codes is the use of an automated system for submitting proposals known as cdpVA (code development process Virginia).  DHCD has partnered with the International Code Council (ICC), which has its cdpACCESS system for submitting proposals to the International Codes. Under an agreement with ICC, the cdpACCESS system has been customized for the Virginia process and renamed cdpVA.

(4) workgroups have been assembled to review the 2015 I-Codes, 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC), and proposed amendments submitted by the public.  (2) meetings are planned for each workgroup during the proposed regulation part of the process to discuss issues identified as problematic along with the code change proposals that have been submitted.

  • Workgroup 1 covers the administrative provisions of the VCC, VMC, VRC, and SPFC.  This includes VADR/ADTAC (amusement rides), VCS/BCAAC (certification requirements), IBSR (modular buildings), and MHSR (manufactured housing).  Workgroup 1 will meet on March 23, 2016 and July 7, 2016 at the Henrico Training Room, 7701 E. Parham Road in Henrico, VA 23294.
  • Workgroup 2 covers the technical provisions of the VCC, VMC, VRC, and SFPC (IBC, IFC, IEBC, IPMC, and other model codes).  Workgroup 2 will meet on April 6, 2016 at the Virginia Housing Center, 4224 Cox Road in Glen Allen VA 23060.  A second meeting will be held on July 20, 2016 at a location TBD.
  • Workgroup 3 covers the residential provisions of the VCC, including the trade and energy provisions of the IRC.  Workgroup 3 will meet on May 10, 2016 at the Virginia Housing Center, 4224 Cox Road in Glen Allen, VA 23060.  A second meeting will be held on August 3, 2016 at the Henrico Training Room, 7701 E. Parham Road in Henrico, VA 23294.
     
  • Workgroup 4 covers the technical trade provisions of the VCC, including the IPC, IMC, IFGC, and NEC.  Workgroup 4 will meet on June 1, 2016 at the Virginia Housing Center, 4224 Cox Road in Glen Allen, VA 23060.  A second meeting will be held on August 17, 2016 at the Henrico Training Room, 7701 E.
