The Pennsylvania Independent Regulatory Review Commission has updated the state’s Uniform Construction Code to align with the 2015 International Code —a family of comprehensive and coordinated building codes used in all 50 states that are updated regularly and take into account the latest health and safety technology and building science advancements.

The change, which took effect Oct. 1, marks the Keystone state’s first residential and commercial construction building code update in nearly a decade. At the city level, in October Philadelphia adopted the 2018 International Building Code into law for commercial construction.
