PA Energy Code PA Check

Rules and Regulations

The current PA Energy Code is based primarily on two legal documents:

On October 27, 2017, the PA General Assembly passed Act 36 of 2017. It directed the Department of Labor and Industry to update the Uniform Construction Code, which was then based on the 2009 I-Codes. Act 36 required that Labor and Industry complete a review of recent code updates, solicit public comments, prepare recommendations, and implement an updated code by October 1, 2018.

PA Act 36 of 2017

On September 29, 2018, Department of Labor and Industry released Document No. 18-1524, which codified the Rules and Regulations resulting from the work required by Act 36 of 2017. It details the I-codes which comprise the new UCC, as well as all of the PA-specific additions, deletions, and modifications that were adopted following the review process.
