Section b. Administration and Enforcement of the State Minimum Standard Codes In order to properly administer and enforce the state minimum standard codes, local governments must adopt reasonable administrative provisions.
The power to adopt these administrative procedures is set forth in O. Section a 1. These provisions should include procedural requirements for the enforcement of the codes, provisions for hearings, provisions for appeals from decisions of local inspectors, and any other procedures necessary for the proper local administration and enforcement of the state minimum standard codes.
These powers include: Inspecting buildings and other structures to ensure compliance with the code; Employing inspectors and other personnel necessary for the proper enforcement of codes; Requiring permits and to establishment charges for said permits; and Contracting with other local governments for code enforcement.
If a local government chooses to locally enforce any of these codes, it must enforce the latest editions and the amendments adopted by DCA. Appendices It should be noted that The Uniform Codes Act states that the appendices of the codes are not enforceable unless referenced in the body of the code, adopted by DCA, or specifically adopted by a municipality or county.
If any appendices have been adopted by DCA, they will be noted in the Georgia amendments as such. Local Amendments The Uniform Codes Act provides that local governments may, under certain conditions, adopt local amendments to the state minimum standard codes.
Please note that DCA does not approve or disapprove any local amendment. The department provides a recommendation only.
However, in order to enforce any local amendment, the local government must submit the proposed amendment to DCA for review O. Section c. There are several requirements local governments must meet in order to enact a local code amendment.
