Regulation Authority :
R.I. Gen. Laws § Chapter 23-27.3
Purpose and Reason :
RISBC-19 State Fuel Gas Code sets for the minimum standards for all building systems that use fuel gas in the State. Rhode Island Building Codes are amendments of the International Building Codes which we use as our model. The Building Standards Committee modifies parts of the Codes to adhere to our State and the elements of our State. The State Building Code Standards Committee has reviewed this regulation and proposes the following non-technical amendments.
· Numerous punctuation and grammatical changes have been made throughout that do not result in substantive changes to the regulation.
· All references to International Fuel Gas (“IFGC”) 2015, have been changed to the 2018 edition. Some IFGC section numbers have been amended to conform to IFGC 2018.
· Throughout the regulation: updated internal cross-references with new RICR citations and references to the 2021 version.
· Chapter 1 Administration: Adds that the Provisions of the Rhode Island Swimming Pool and Spa Code SBC-14 (Part 14 of this Subchapter) shall apply whenever the International Swimming Pool and Spa Code is referenced.
