Like most large cities in the United States, Washington, D.C. has some specific requirements and regulations for fall protection. The District of Columbia requires contractors to have multiple certificates, licenses, and registrations which can be complicated for those contractors as most reside in neighboring states.
Multiple laws and regulations have continued to be adopted to direct the construction of buildings and structures. Buildings and structures are obligated to comply with the District of Columbia construction codes under the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA). The DCRA enforces the construction codes and those portions of the D.C. official code that relates to buildings and structures. The District of Columbia has also adopted 11 of the 2012 International Code Council in March 2014.
