Uniform Construction Codes
Construction in the City of Pittsburgh is regulated by Pennsylvania’s statewide building code known as the Uniform Construction Code (UCC). The PA Department of Labor & Industry publicizes UCC regulations.
The City of Pittsburgh amended the UCC under City of Pittsburgh's Code of Ordinances - Title 10. These local amendments remain applicable as the UCC is updated by the Commonwealth. While the City Ordinances reference specific 2003 I-code code sections, these amendments are enforced based on the code provision or topic.
