The OUBCC has begun the rulemaking process to update the adopted commercial codes found in Chapter 20 (Adopted Codes) of our rules. Technical committees met, reviewed codes and made recommendations to the Commission for changes to the code and existing rules. These recommendations included moving from the 2009 to the 2015 editions of the International Building Code® (IBC), International Existing Building Code® (IEBC), International Fire Code® (IFC), International Fuel Gas Code® (IFGC), International Mechanical Code® (IMC), and International Plumbing Code® (IPC); as well as moving from the 2011 to the 2014 edition of the National Electrical Code® (NEC).
Public comments on these rules will be accepted from Monday, January 5, 2015 through Tuesday, February 3, 2015. A public hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. in our offices. The public hearing is open to anyone who wishes to address the OUBCC regarding these rules.
