9/28/2017: Legislative Committee Report

Brian Rinke, chair of the legislative committee attended the state's Ask the Code Official Call back in July.  The following is a summary of the points discussed during the call:

  • There is no set date on the transition to IBC 2015/IECC 2015 (Wisconsin SPS 361-366).  They are currently estimating that it will be January 1, 2018.
  • The state is setup for E-filing, but it is only good for new construction of commercial buildings only.  They allow for choosing the particular reviewer, but not generally picking the office for review.
  • When issuing projects to the state for review, if you get it in 5 days before your scheduled review, they will do a cursory review to look for any quick items that may get you rejected
  • They are looking to expand the list of Agent Municipalities.  They list the current Agent Municipalities on their website.  The Agent Municipalities are the cities that review their own projects.

Any further news obtained by the legislative committee will be posted on the site!
