DCA Guidance and Temporary Rule Change to UCC

DCA has issued a Notice of Rule Waiver/Modification/Suspension temporarily relaxing certain provisions of Uniform Construction Code (UCC) along with a guidance memo to construction offices regarding implementation.

The Department of Community Affairs (DCA) this week issued a Notice of Rule Waiver/Modification/Suspension Pursuant to Executive Order No.103, which temporarily relaxes certain provisions of Uniform Construction Code (UCC). In this notice the DCA announces temporary rule changes to provisions of the UCC concerning specifically; Minor Work (N.J.A.C. 5:23-2.17A), Inspections (N.J.A.C. 5:23-2.18), and Certificate requirements (N.J.A.C. 5:23-2.23.) The purpose of the temporary rule changes is to ensure the continuity of construction without a detriment to the public welfare during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In conjunction with this Notice, the DCA also issued a Memo providing guidance to construction offices regarding the implementation of the temporary rule changes. The Memo offers differing operational guidance for construction offices based on whether or not the office is open during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To learn more about these rule changes please see the League’s recent blog post for a more in depth discussion. Please review this information with your local code enforcement officials.
