Bill summary

House amendments make the following changes to the 2nd edition:

Amendment #1

Makes a conforming change, deleting language in GS 143-138(b2)(1) that required carbon monoxide alarms to be OSHA-approved, now providing that they just must be approved alarms, reflecting previous changes in the act that allows for alarms approved by other entities than OSHA.

Amendment #2

Requires the Building Code Council, by March 31, 2015, to adopt a rule to amend the NC State Building Code, in regards to structures required to comply with the provisions of GS 143-138(b2)(2), that includes the standards for carbon monoxide alarms contained in the 2015 International Fire Code provided by the International Code Council. Requires the effective date of this rule to be no later than June 1, 2015.
