Washington State Building Code Implementation
Amendment to the State Building Code
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are exceptional constraints to conducting necessary outreach, training, and preparation prior to the July 1, 2020, scheduled effective date of the orders adopting amendments to the State Building Code. As a result Governor Inslee has delayed implementation of the orders adopting amendments to the State Building Code from July 1, 2020, to November 1, 2020, which will provide the SBCC and other entities and associations that perform work subject to the Washington State Building Code or who provide training related to the Washington State Building Code time for outreach, training, and other preparations.
