Vol. 38 Iss. 7 - November 22, 2021

Chapter 91
Notice of Intended Regulatory Action

Notice is hereby given in accordance with § 2.2-4007.01 of the Code of Virginia that the Board of Housing and Community Development intends to consider amending 13VAC5-91, Virginia Industrialized Building Safety Regulations. The purpose of the proposed action is to update the model codes and standards developed by the International Code Council referenced in the Virginia Industrialized Building Safety Regulations (IBSR) from the 2018 editions to the 2021 editions. The IBSR must be updated each time the Uniform Statewide Building Code is updated to ensure that industrialized buildings meet the same minimum standards as site-built structures. Industrialized buildings are buildings constructed in a factory or plant for subsequent installation or erection on property in Virginia's cities, counties, or towns. This action will also consider amendments to administrative and enforcement provisions of the IBSR as determined necessary for the administration of the industrialized building program, which is done by the Department of Housing and Community Development's State Building Codes Office. This action is exempt from Article 2 of the Administrative Process Act (§ 2.2-4000 et seq. of the Code of Virginia) in accordance with § 2.2-4006 A 12 of the Code of Virginia.

The agency intends to hold a public hearing on the proposed action after publication in the Virginia Register.

Statutory Authority: § 36-73 of the Code of Virginia.

Public Comment Deadline: December 22, 2021.
