MN Plumbing Code Update

March 19, 2021by Kevin Egilmez

Anticipated effective date of new Minnesota plumbing code is late 2021

The Minnesota Plumbing Board anticipates publishing the Notice of Adoption for the amendments to the Plumbing Code, which incorporates by reference the 2018 Uniform Plumbing Code, in March 2021.

Minnesota statutes require a 270-day delay between publication of the rule’s Notice of Adoption in the State Register and the effective date of the rule. This allows time to publish the code book and provide training. As a result, the anticipated effective date will be sometime in late 2021. The current Plumbing Code will remain in effect until the new rule’s effective date.

The amendments to the Minnesota Plumbing Code, Chapter 4714, and periodic updates are available on the board’s rulemaking docket here.
