Yesterday, March 10, 2010, Commonwealth Court Judge Johnny J. Butler denied the Pennsylvania Builders Association (PBA) request for a preliminary injunction enjoining the Department from enforcing its regulation adopting the 2009 International Codes.  The result of this decision is that the 2009 ICC Codes remain in effect in Pennsylvania, including the requirement of fire sprinkler systems in one- and two-family homes and townhomes.

The case will proceed from here but developments are not expected in the short term. Until final resolution of the case the PA UCC remains in full force as currently adopted, including all 2009 ICC code provisions.
