STANDARDS COMMISSION KICKS-OFF NEXT ROUND OF UPDATES

The Building Standards Commission has announced public hearing dates for two of its Code Advisory Committees.  As required by industry-sponsored legislation, state agencies proposing to amend the state building codes must first have their code-change proposal heard by at least one of the BSC’s Code Advisory Committees (CAC).   These advisory committees then provide the proposing agency and the commission with advice on whether the code-change should be rejected, approved or approved with amendments.

Upcoming Advisory Committee meeting dates are:

— Green Building Advisory Committee: Thursday, March 13th

— Ad Hoc (Building & Fire) Advisory Committee: March 18th and 19th

Industry has voting representatives on each of these Committees.  Issues of note will be BSC’s electric vehicle readiness standards to be heard by the Green Building CAC on March 13th.
