Title 12—COMMERCE, TRADE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT
DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY AND
[12 PA. CODE CH. 145]
Notice of Implementation—Industrialized Buildings and Components
[53 Pa.B. 830]
[Saturday, February 11, 2023]
The Department of Community and Economic Development (Department), is providing notice of the implementation of the regulations published at 46 Pa.B. 6976 (November 5, 2016) found at http://www.pacodeandbulletin.gov/Display/pabull?file=/secure/pabulletin/data/vol46/ 46-45/1901.html.
Under section 5 of the Industrialized Housing Act (act) (35 P.S. § 1651.5), the amendments of Chapter 145 (relating to industrial housing and components) expanded the Department's role to include monitoring the production of industrialized buildings and building components.
The implementation of the regulations published at 46 Pa.B. 6976 begins on February 22, 2023.
The certification program under Chapter 145 requires the Department to oversee the production, installation and inspection of new industrialized buildings. Industrialized buildings that are produced under this certification program, by evidence of the notice of approval, will be deemed to comply with the Pennsylvania Construction Code Act (35 P.S. §§ 7210.101—7210.1103). This type of certification program mirrors the current program established for industrialized housing.
This will be a ''phase-in'' period. As manufacturers are approved under the program, the notice of approval for industrialized buildings, like industrialized housing, will be issued. This period will end on December 31, 2023. At that time, all industrialized buildings and building components must be certified under the act (35 P.S. §§ 1651.1—1651.12) and Chapter 145, to be approved for placement in the Commonwealth.
All other aspects of Chapter 145 remain the same.
Program inquiries should be directed to Michael Moglia, Director, Housing and Buildings Standards Division, Department of Community and Economic Development, Commonwealth Keystone Building, 400 North Street, 4th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17120-0225, (717) 720-7416, email@example.com.
