Code Council Update
The New York State Fire Prevention and Building Code Council met last month and Department of State staff outlined their plan for implementing the new 2018-2019 New York State codes.

The next Code Council meeting is set for December 5 th . DOS staff will provide Code Council members with all of the provided public comments and begin discussions for how the final codes will look.

The council hopes to have a final code in place by their springtime meeting with a finalized official code by next fall.
