NJLM, Code Officials Petition DCA on Minor Work Rules

This week, the Department of Community Affairs, Division of Codes and Standards issued a Public Notice acknowledging receipt of the Petition for Rulemaking submitted on behalf of the League along with New Jersey’s six professional code official associations. The Petition comes after the Department made changes to the Uniform Construction Code’s minor work and ordinary maintenance provisions, which took effect last year, that undermine the efforts of local officials to ensure the health and safety of all New Jersey Residents.

The issuance of a public notice is a required step in the process of having our petition considered for possible adoption. The DCA has 60 days from receipt of a petition for rulemaking to deny the request, accept it and place it for public comment, or request additional time for internal review.

The League’s efforts on this issue are in large part a result of League Conference Resolution 2018-19. While a Conference Resolution signifies the importance of an issue for our members, League efforts can be amplified with individual resolutions from municipalities. To that end, we have prepared a sample resolution supporting the League rulemaking petition, which your municipality may wish to adopt and forward to the DCA if you have not done so already.
