DPD is revising the schedule for adoption of the 2012 editions of the Seattle building, residential, existing building, mechanical, fuel gas, energy, and plumbing codes. We are going to specify that the codes will become mandatory no earlier than October 13, 2013. There will still be a period during which applicants will have the choice of using the 2009 or 2012 codes, but that period will not end before October 13. We hope the certainty provided by this date will be helpful to people planning to submit permit applications this fall.
