RULES AND REGULATIONS

Title 34—LABOR AND INDUSTRY

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR AND INDUSTRY

[ 34 PA. CODE CHS. 401, 403 AND 405 ]

Uniform Construction Code

[49 Pa.B. 3077]
[Saturday, June 15, 2019]

 In accordance with sections 302 and 304 of the Pennsylvania Construction Code Act (act) (35 P.S. §§ 7210.302 and 7210.304), the Department of Labor and Industry (Department) amends Chapters 401, 403 and 405 (relating to Uniform Construction Code training and certification of code administrators; administration; and elevators and other lifting devices) to read as set forth in Annex A.

Statutory Authority

 This final-omitted rulemaking is issued under the authority provided in sections 302(a)(2) and 304(a)(3) of the act. Section 304(a)(3) provides that, by December 31 of the year of issuance, the Department shall adopt regulations updating the accessibility provisions of the most recently published edition of the International Code Council (ICC) codes and any other accessibility requirements which shall be specified in the regulations, or contained in or referenced by the Uniform Construction Code (UCC) relating to persons with disabilities. In addition, section 302(a)(2) of the act requires the latest standards for the operation of ski lifts prescribed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) be included in Chapter 35 of the UCC.

Background

 The act mandates a process for the adoption of updated building codes issued by the ICC. Although most building code provisions are reviewed by the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code Review and Advisory Council under the procedure outlined in section 108 of the act (35 P.S. § 7210.108), the act specifically excludes the accessibility provisions of the ICC codes from this review under section 107(b)(3) (35 P.S. § 7210.107(b)(3)). Instead, section 304(a)(3) of the act requires the Department to adopt, by December 31 of the year of issuance by the ICC, the ICC's updated accessibility standards for the construction, repair or alteration of buildings in this Commonwealth. In 2018, the ICC issued codes containing updated accessibility standards. Adoption of the current accessibility standards will ensure that commercial buildings meet current standards for accessible and usable facilities. This final-omitted rulemaking will be effective upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

 The purpose of this final-omitted rulemaking is to adopt recognized international standards for accessible and usable buildings and structures, as directed by the act. The current accessibility regulations implemented the accessibility standards found in the 2015 ICC codes. This regulation implements current state-of-the-art accessibility standards and conforms to standards issued by the United States Department of Justice under the Americans with Disabilities Act (42 U.S.C.A. §§ 12101—12213). Adopting Chapter 11 and Appendix E of the 2018 International Building Code (IBC) for new construction along with the accessibility provisions contained in the 2018 International Existing Building Code (IEBC), the 2018 International Plumbing Code (IPC) and the 2018 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code (ISPSC) will allow the Department to comply with the directive of the act to update accessibility requirements in the UCC with successor codes.

 In addition, section 304(a)(2) of the act requires the Department to include the latest ANSI standards applicable to the operation of ski lifts prescribed in the American National Standards for Passenger Tramways, Aerial Tramways, Aerial Lifts, Surface Lifts and Tows, ANSI B77.1. The current regulation recognizes ANSI B77.1-2011 and supplement ANSI B77.1a-2012. However, the latest ANSI B77.1 standards are contained in ANSI B77.1-2017. Accordingly, the Department must adopt ANSI B77.1-2017 to bring the Commonwealth's standards for the operation of ski lifts into compliance with the current state-of-the-art and recognized standards, as mandated by the act.

Compliance with Executive Order 1996-1, Regulatory Review and Promulgation

 On September 20, 2018, the Accessibility Advisory Board (Board) held a public hearing to review and consider the updates to the accessibility provisions of the ICC codes. This is required by section 106(b) of the act (35 P.S. § 7210.106(b)). The Board voted to endorse the accessibility updates found in the ICC codes. The Department has discussed the adoption of accessibility provisions for buildings with the Pennsylvania Builders Association and the Pennsylvania Association of Building Code Officials and both entities have expressed support for adoption of the accessibility provisions contained in the 2018 IBC for new construction and the accessibility provisions contained in the 2018 IEBC for existing buildings.

 On April 25 and June 13, 2018, the Department held discussions with members of the Pennsylvania Ski Area Association at their annual seminars where they expressed their support of the adoption of the ANSI B77.1-2017 edition.

Purpose

 The purpose of this final-omitted rulemaking is to amend 34 Pa. Code §§ 401.1, 403.21, 403.26, 403.28 and 405.2 to adopt the ICC accessibility updates and the ANSI updates for ski lifts.

Summary of Final-Omitted Rulemaking

§ 401.1. Definitions.

 This section changes the definitions for the IBC and the IEBC to state that they include the accessibility provisions of the 2018 IBC and the 2018 IEBC. This was done because the ICC updated the accessibility provisions of the IBC and IEBC.

§ 403.21. Uniform Construction Code.

 The Department is amending subparagraph (a)(2) to replace the accessibility provisions found in Chapter 11 of the 2015 IBC with the updated accessibility provisions of Chapter 11 of the 2018 IBC. This is being done to implement the latest accessibility standards.

 The Department is amending subparagraph (a)(6)(i) to make it more readable. In addition, the Department is adding new subparagraph (a)(6)(iii) to add accessibility provisions specifically designated by the ICC in the 2018 IPC. This is being done to implement the latest accessibility standards.

 The Department is adding new subparagraph (a)(10)(i) to add accessibility provisions specifically designated by the ICC in the 2018 IEBC. This is being done to implement the latest accessibility standards.

 The Department is amending subparagraph (a)(12) to replace the accessibility provisions found in Appendix E of the 2015 IBC with the updated accessibility provisions of Appendix E of the 2018 IBC. This is being done to implement the latest accessibility standards.

§ 403.26. Swimming pools.

 The Department is amending paragraph (b) to add accessibility provisions specifically designated by the ICC in the 2018 ISPSC. This is being done to implement the latest accessibility standards.

§ 403.28. Uncertified buildings.

 The Department is amending subparagraphs (b)(3)(ii) and (b)(3)(iii) to replace the accessibility provisions found in the 2015 IBC with the updated accessibility provisions of the 2018 IBC. This is being done to implement the latest accessibility standards.

§ 405.2. Standards.

 The Department is amending subparagraph (a)(4) to replace the ski lift standards found in ANSI B77.1-2011 and supplement ANSI B77.1a-2012 with the updated standards found in ANSI B77.1-2017. This is being done to implement the latest standards for ski lifts.

Affected Persons

 This final-omitted rulemaking will affect all builders and contractors in the construction industry and all building code officials who enforce the regulations. It will also affect all ski lift operators, ski lift designers and ski lift manufacturers.

Fiscal Impact

 To enforce this final-omitted rulemaking, the Department and building code officials will need to purchase the 2018 IBC, IEBC and IPC. Ski lift operators, designers and manufacturers will have to purchase ANSI B77.1- 2017.

 Builders and contractors will have to absorb some costs to comply with the updated standards. The Department does not possess specific data on any increase of costs to builders or contractors.

 Ski lift operators, ski lift designers and ski lift manufacturers will also absorb some costs to comply with the updated standards. The Department does not possess specific data on any increase of costs to builders or contractors.

Reporting, Recordkeeping and Paperwork Requirements

 The Department will have to update the following forms: Accessibility Advisory Board Petition; Application for Building Permit; and Special Inspections and Observation Statement. There are no additional reporting, recordkeeping or paperwork requirements.

Sunset Date

 There is no sunset date for these regulations. The act requires accessibility standards to be updated every 3 years following publication of the triennial revisions to the ICC codes. In addition, the Department is required to have the latest standards for ski lifts as part of their elevator regulations.

Effective Date

 This final-omitted rulemaking will take effect upon publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

Contact Person

 The contact person is Matthew W. Kegg, Director, Bureau of Occupational and Industrial Safety, Department of Labor and Industry, 651 Boas Street, Room 1613, Harrisburg, PA 17121, (717) 783-6304; mkegg@pa.gov.
