LATEST INFORMATION

Legislative News

There are two proposals in the New Jersey Register pertaining to the adoption of the next set of codes. One proposal is for the adoption of the 2021 National Standard Plumbing Code, and the second proposal is for the adoption of the 2021 editions of the ICC’s IBC, IRC, IFGC, IMC, IECC, and the 2020 NEC. These will all have new Jersey’s amendments that are included in these proposals. Comments must be submitted by June 17, 2022 for both proposals.

Another proposal that the comment period has actually expired is meant to clarify the Conflict of Interest rules found in NJAC 5:23-4.5 (j) iii, as shown in red below. Prior approvals and fees must be those of the municipality where the work is located, as is the responsibility of the municipality where the work is located to report the work to the DCA. These are only proposals at this time, and we will report as to if and when they are adopted.

iii. Where an inspection or enforcement procedure is performed by another
enforcing agency due to a conflict of interest, the fee schedule of the enforcing agency in
which the project is located shall be utilized in calculating the fees for the project. The
State training fee for the project and the reporting of the project pursuant to Department
requirements shall be submitted by the enforcing agency where the project is located.
After inspection or enforcement procedures have been performed, the agency that
performed such procedures shall provide the information required to be reported to the
municipality where the project is located. Permit documentation shall be shared between
the local enforcing agencies for timely and accurate reporting. The prior approvals
required in the municipality where the project is located shall apply.
