LISTENING SESSIONS FOR THE ADOPTION OF BUILDING CODES IN MONTANA - August 26 – August 29, 2019

The Montana Department of Labor and Industry will be conducting listening sessions in three cities throughout Montana to gather input on adopting administrative rule and new editions of the energy code, elevator code and code changes pertaining to tall wood buildings that will appear in the 2021 International Building Code.

The following provides a schedule of the listening sessions, an agenda and a flowchart of the opportunities to provide input.  In addition, you will find information on the three items the department will be considering for adoption.  All current administrative rules will be carried forward unless they are changed as a result of comments received during the code adoption process. 

The Department held listening sessions and convened the Montana Building Codes Council on July 9th to consider the adoption of 9 newer editions of our currently adopted building codes.  The Council’s recommendations and the administrative rules will appear soon in the notice of intent to adopt new administrative rules that will be posted on the Building Codes website.

The Department’s goal is to provide as many opportunities as possible for stakeholders to provide input on the code adoption process and these opportunities are outlined in the flowchart. The comments received during these listening sessions will be presented to the Building Codes Council for their review and input.  The Department will then begin the administrative rule process which requires a written comment period and a public hearing.

Participants are encouraged to comment on any topic regarding the state building code.
