PUBLIC SAFETY DEPARTMENT
Amended Notice of Intended Action
Providing for a public hearing on rule making related to electrical installations
The Notice of Intended Action published in the Iowa Administrative Bulletin on August 11, 2021, as ARC 5838C proposes to amend Chapter 504, "Standards for Electrical Work," Iowa Administrative Code. In order to receive oral comments concerning ARC 5838C, the Electrical Examining Board hereby gives notice that a public hearing will be held as follows:
October 21, 2021
10 to 11 a.m.
First Floor Public Conference Room 125
Oran Pape State Office Building
Des Moines, Iowa
Persons who wish to make oral comments at the public hearing may be asked to state their names for the record and to confine their remarks to the subject of this proposed rule making.
Any persons who intend to attend the public hearing and have special requirements, such as those related to hearing or mobility impairments, should contact the Board and advise of specific needs.
Legal Authority for Rule Making
This rule making is proposed under the authority provided in Iowa Code section 103.6(1).
State or Federal Law Implemented
This rule making implements, in whole or in part, 2021 Iowa Acts, House File 871, section 25.
Purpose and Summary
The proposed rule making removes the January 1, 2022, expiration date in rule 661—504.1(103) and brings that rule into alignment with 2021 Iowa Acts, House File 871, section 25. The rule making provides consistency and predictability regarding the rules applicable to electrical installations in Iowa by clarifying that the amendments in rule 661—504.1(103) will remain in effect until the Board issues additional rule making in response to any changes to the National Electrical Code, 2020 edition.
The Board wishes to hold a public hearing on this matter during one of its regular meetings in order to allow interested parties the opportunity to comment publicly, which requires additional time. No changes have been made from the original Notice.
Fiscal Impact, Jobs Impact, Waivers
Statements related to the fiscal impact, jobs impact, and waiver of this rule making may be found in the preamble of ARC 5838C.
Review by Administrative Rules Review Committee
The Administrative Rules Review Committee, a bipartisan legislative committee which oversees rule making by executive branch agencies, may, on its own motion or on written request by any individual or group, review this rule making at its regular monthly meeting or at a special meeting. The Committee's meetings are open to the public, and interested persons may be heard as provided in Iowa Code section 17A.8(6).
