Building Code Implementation Extension Repealed

Building Code Implementation Extension Repealed

The Governor has repealed the recommendation from the Washington State Building Code Council (SBCC) to delay the implementation of the 2018 model codes to July 1, 2021.

The 2018 model codes will go into effect on February 1, 2021.

We are looking at two different vesting dates for application submittals:

  • Submittal Date: The initial submittal date will be used for the purpose of vesting to the 2015 model codes.
  • Payment Date: The payment date will be used for vesting impact fees and sewer connection charges at the 2020 rates. Please remember that fee increases are effective February 1, 2021, so if you want to avoid fee increases, you must pay no later than January 31 at midnight.

We are here to assist with application submittal, payment and vesting. Please contact the Development Center for help with application submittal and payment. Please contact Nick Waggood, Assistant Building Official, for questions and clarifications about vesting.

 Thank you for your understanding as we prepare for this big change in our industry.
