The Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement Department is offering a 2012 North Carolina Building Code Update class from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 19 at the Hal Marshall Center, 700 N. Tryon St., Charlotte. The cost is $75.
Jeff Vernon, a North Carolina Qualification Board-certified instructor, will highlight changes in the 2012 building code.
The transition period for building, fire prevention, mechanical, plumbing and fuel gas codes began Sept. 1 and will continue until March 1. The transition for the residential and energy conservation codes will begin Jan. 1 and continue through March 1.
Projects not permitted by March 1 must comply with the new code. The new electric code was referred to the General Assembly for review after objections were filed against it. The department does not anticipate a switch to the new electrical code until summer 2012 at the earliest.
