Department of Public Safety Office of Weights and Measures and Office of the State Fire Marshal

The proposed Administrative Rule revisions and repeals involve Rules from the Office of Weights and Measures and the Office of the State Fire Marshal. The effect of the rules will be to update the adoptions of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the International Building, Fire, and Mechanical Codes, to update and revise references, to require the use of certified test weights, to allow NIST traceable field test standards for refined fuels and liquid petroleum gas, and to repeal repetitive rules. The reasons for adopting the proposed rules are to allow the utilization of modern weights and measures technology and test methods; to utilize current, safe building practices; and to update and clarify the listed rules.

New content is added below as the draft rules move through the rule-making process.
