The State Building Code Council (SBCC) has adopted emergency rules regarding marijuana extraction facilities. The emergency rule went into effect on July 1, 2015.
This new rule establishes specific requirements for the handling of hazardous materials, establishes inspection standards and provides construction and permit requirements to ensure life/safety for occupants, first responders and the public.
I encourage you to have your fire prevention officer or other applicable staff review the regulations which apply to both new and existing facilities.
The specific regulations can be viewed by going to the SBCC website
