Lauzon Life Safety ConsultingBill Lauzon ConsultingThis is a tough subject, detailed & new, with limited time available in a 90 min webinar.Therefore We make no claim of being all-inclusive of all changes that are in the newCMS codes; and make no claim to understand how these codes may be interpreted by themain AHJs out there. These are our best personal opinions at this time. Read the Code!5

c) EnforcementLSC Says: Must Meet 2012 NEW REQUIREMENTS IF building plans approved after July 5, 2016or IF begin construction after July 5, 201616

c) EnforcementKnowing how long it typically takes DQA to review andapprove plans, it is probable that all plans submittednow should be based on the 2012 code.17

c) EnforcementHowever, CMS has nojurisdiction in Wis plan review,so it is unclear how officiallythings will play out in Wis.18

c) EnforcementGenerally, DQA has indicated that plansneed to be based on the code in effecton the day they were submitted. If thisposition still holds, then plans beingsubmitted can be based on the 2000 LSCup until July 4.However, the tone in Madisonis to follow CMS lead if there isnothing specific in Wis rules.19

c) EnforcementDesign basedon 2000?Design basedon 2012?20
