A public workshop will be held on August 22, 2013, beginning at 8:30 at the Hilton Ft Lauderdale Beach Resort. Regarding rule 61G20-1.001, adopting annual “glitch” amendments to the 2010 Florida Building code will be considered by the Florida Building Commission during this public workshop. Proposed changes to rules 61G20- 3.001, 3.002, and 3.007 will also be a subject at this workshop. The proposed changes are to have the new product category ‘impact protective systems’ to include applications for product approval using product evaluation reports from evaluation entities, other than from licensed engineers or architects.
