I received the following message from my friends at Russell Phillips and Associates, LLC:
For those of you that are awaiting the adoption of the 2012 Life Safety Code: We recently learned that the CMS rule adopting the 2012 LSC passed out of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) last week. This final rule is now cleared to be published in the Federal Register and should be out soon. Many years in the making and it is finally very close to being here. Now we need to see if it was approved in its entirety or if it was modified.
I was told by another source that May is the month that CMS likes to release final rules, and Friday is the day of the week that CMS likes to release notices in the Federal Register.
Keep your eyes posted….
