- Meetings & Events
Originally the OUBCC started the code adoption process for the eight codes listed below in February 2020, with a public hearing scheduled as part of a Commission meeting on March 17th, 2020. However, due to a lack of a quorum the meeting was cancelled and the public hearing was not held. Rulemaking stopped at this point. At a special meeting of the OUBCC in August, 2020, the Commission voted to reapprove the draft rules and restart rulemaking on the codes listed below.
The OUBCC has filed Notices of Rulemaking Intent (NRI's) to adopt the 2018 editions of the International Building Code®, International Existing Building Code®, International Fire Code®, International Fuel Gas Code®, International Mechanical Code®, and International Plumbing Code®; adopt the 2017 National Electrical Code®; and modify language in the 2015 edition of the International Residential Code®, and to modify the agency's administrative rules, with the Oklahoma Secretary of State's Office of Administrative Rules.
The NRI's will publish in the Oklahoma Register on Tuesday, September 15, 2020. A public comment period will begin on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 through Thursday, October 15, 2020. Comments may be submitted in writing or given orally during regular business hours (8:00 to 4:30, Monday - Friday). A public hearing has been scheduled for Friday, October 16, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. Anyone wishing to speak for or against the proposed rules must sign in by 10:00 a.m. The public hearing will be held at the Construction Industries Board/OUBCC Conference room, at 2401 NW 23rd St., Sutie 2F, Oklahoma City, OK 73107.
