As a member service, AIA Pennsylvania tracks all legislation at the state level and advocates for architects here in Harrisburg. One of the issues that we have been intimately involved with is the code adoption process and the re-review of the 2015 ICC Codes.

AIA PA has three AIA architects that sit on the UCC Review and Advisory Council. In accordance with Act 26 of 2017, which AIA Pennsylvania advocated for, the RAC has submitted their report to the Secretay of Labor and Industry with their recommendations for adoption.

We have been saying that Pennsylvania is moving to 2015 codes and here are the details. These changes will be effective as of October 1, 2018. Any questions please refer to the Labor and Industry UCC RAC website or contact Amal Mahrouki at 717.236.4055 or
