Effective Date of the Building Standards Applicable to the Industrialized Housing and Components Program

[42 Pa.B. 2755]
[Saturday, May 19, 2012]

 As provided under section 5 of the Industrialized Housing Act (act) (35 P. S. § 1651.5), regarding the adoption of the building standards and in 12 Pa. Code § 145.44 (relating to adoption and effective dates—code amendments), the Department of Community and Economic Development (Department) has determined that a later date for the adoption of the 2012 edition of the International Code Council building standards listed in 12 Pa. Code § 145.41(a) (relating to adoption of standards) is necessary to implement the purposes of the act and to avoid unreasonable hardship on the manufacturers of industrialized housing.

 Based on a recommendation made by the Industrialized Housing Advisory Group on March 1, 2012, 27 written requests as well as the testimony received at the public hearing held on May 3, 2012, the Department has determined the date of adoption of the 2012 International Code Council building standards is delayed until the time it can be determined adoption of these building standards is consistent with the purposes of the act. As a result, the 2009 International Code Council building standards will remain in effect until further notice.
