The first phase of the Construction Codes Advisory Council’s (CCAC) recommendation to the department about the Minnesota State Building Code is almost complete.
The process began in January 2018 when the CCAC established Technical Advisory Groups (TAGs) to review seven of the 2018 I-Codes and make recommendations for their potential adoption with amendments to Minnesota Rules. Three additional TAGs were tasked with reviewing the administrative requirements of the model codes, fire and building code compatibility and the structural provisions of the I-Codes. Each TAG consists of a minimum of six members and two of them are Department of Labor and Industry staff members.
Review recommendations and comment
When the TAGs complete their review of the 2018 I-Codes, a report will be submitted to the CCAC and stakeholders for review and comment. The CCAC will review the report and comments to make recommendations for the adoption of the 2018 I-Codes and potential amendments to Minnesota Rules. Then, the next phase begins as DLI staff prepare drafts of each rule for possible adoption.
