NOTE: Horsham Township is an opt-in community for enforcement of State Act # 45, The Uniform Construction Code.

The State adopted the above noted Act in 1999 and it became effective in Horsham Township on July 1, 2003. The time delay between the Legislature adopting the Act and the Governor signing the Act was due to the Department of Labor & Industry needing the time to develop the "nuts and bolts" of Enforcement and Certification requirements for inspectors of this Act on a State wide basis.
