Current Issues/Recent Successes:
- Pikes Peak Regional Building announced that splices can now be submitted electronically and are now available to contractors to submit. The splice needs to be attached to a permit. Review the plan and permit section of their website to get started.
- Arc Fault Circuit-Interrupters (AFCIs)- AFCIs have been a requirement in the National Electrical Code (NEC) since the 2002 edition in one form or another. Each new edition of the NEC has seen an expansion of areas within dwelling units where AFCI protection is required. Pikes Peak Regional Building Department has put together this informational letter that can be shared with homeowners that describes the requirements.
- PHMSA is expanding the OQ to cover new construction. The impact will be on LUSI program. They will be requiring drug and alcohol programs and specific OQ training. The proposed rule requires operators to use trained and qualified individuals. CSU says they are required to restructure the LUSI program to meet regulatory requirements. HBA members and CSU continue to meet and monitor this issue.
