Uniform Construction Code; Public Hearings
[32 Pa.B. 4210]
The Department of Labor and Industry (Department) has scheduled three public hearings to hear comments on its proposed Uniform Construction Code (UCC), Administrative and Enforcement and Elevators and Other Lifting Devices regulations. See 32 Pa.B. 4128 (August 24, 2002) for the text of this proposed rulemaking.
The Department will also consider comment and testimony on the ''Code for the Conservation of Space Conditioning Energy for Housing in Pennsylvania: The PHRC Alternative to Chapter 11, Energy Efficiency, of the International Residential Code (IRC) 2000 for Use in Pennsylvania'' at these three public hearings. The Department intends to utilize the Pennsylvania Housing Research Center (PHRC) code in the UCC regulations as an alternative approach to the prescriptive energy measures contained in the ''International Residential Code 2000 and the International Energy Conservation Code 2000.'' Federal law requires each state to certify to the United States Secretary of Energy that its residential building code comports with the ''International Energy Conservation Code 2000.'' A state may determine that its residential building code should be revised to meet or exceed the ''International Energy Conservation Code 2000.'' This notice and the public hearing listed in this notice will fulfill the public notice and hearing requirements under Energy Conservation and Resource Renewal Act, 42 U.S.C.A. § 6833. These regulations are being proposed under section 301 of the Pennsylvania Construction Code Act (35 P. S. § 7210.301).
