Known as Nicole's Law, the regulation 527 CMR 31.00 was effective on an emergency basis as of September 8, 2006. It was filed principally to supplement the existing CO regulation filed earlier this year which applied to most residences.
This regulation establishes requirements for the second phase of the CO law impacting most R-1 (hotels) and I-1 through I-3 (Institutional) establishments.
These regulations require most of these types of buildings to be equipped with hard-wired or more technical CO alarm protection methods. In accordance with the statute, the regulation required the completion of such installation by January 1, 2007. Download the Owner's Notice of Intent Sample Form
