UCC Review & Advisory Council

Potential 2021 Code Sections for Review

About the UCC Review & Advisory Council

The Uniform Construction Code (UCC) Review and Advisory Council were established by the Pennsylvania Construction Code Act (PCCA). The Council consists of 21 members, with appointments made by the Governor and the General Assembly.

The members represent industry sectors that participate in the various aspects relating to the building - including building component design, construction, building code enforcement, and local government representation.

The Council is charged with making recommendations to the Governor, the General Assembly, and Labor & Industry regarding proposed changes to the PCCA. The Council is also charged with reviewing the most recent triennial building code updates published by the International Code Council (ICC). The PCCA requires the Council to submit a report to Labor & Industry’s Secretary, within a prescribed timeline, specifying the updates that are to be adopted as part of Pennsylvania’s UCC.

The council is required to review the applicable triennial code revisions to the following International Codes adopted as the UCC:

    • International Building Code (IBC)
    • International Energy Conservation Code (IECC)
    • International Existing Building Code (IEBC)
    • International Fire Code (IFC)
    • International Fuel Gas Code (IFGC)
    • International Mechanical Code (IMC)
    • ICC Performance Code for Buildings and Facilities (ICCPC)
    • International Plumbing Code (IPC)
    • International Residential Code for One- and Two-Family Dwellings (IRC)
    • International Wildland-Urban Interface Code (IWUIC)
