Quick Fact: For all buildings and structures not regulated by the 2015 Residential Code, Chapter 27 (Electrical) requires compliance with the IBC-2015 and the NEC-2014. The IRC 2015 applies to one- and two-family dwellings no more than three stories in height. The City of Philadelphia was allowed to adopt the 2018 IBC and enforce the NEC-2017 for commercial installations only, all residential installations are per the 2015 IRC. Henceforth, they will coincide with the PA Uniform Construction Code when the State adopts the 2018 I-Codes. (Send us an update):
