Commercial Building Code Moves Forward


The administrative rule package to update the commercial building code in Wisconsin that has been discussed since early 2017 has finally moved through the legislative process. 

The code package was first discussed in January and February 2017, when it was introduced by the Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS) after consulting with the Commercial Building Code Council.  Objections were heard to the DSPS efforts to eliminate code language concerning the requirement for multifamily sprinklers because it was inconsistent with state statutes.  This delayed the process for moving forward with a code package until an Attorney General Opinion was released.
