The Department of Safety and Professional Services has been engaged in rulemaking to update Wis. Admin. Code chapters 361 to 366, the Wisconsin Commercial Building Code. As part of this process, a review of the current fire sprinkler rules for multifamily dwellings was completed and feedback from stakeholders received. Stakeholder feedback called into question the enforceability of current fire sprinkler rules due to them being potentially more restrictive than allowed by statute. The Department takes these concerns seriously and has requested a formal attorney general’s opinion.
