Changes in requirements to meet battery room compliance can be a challenge. Local authorities having jurisdictions often have varying requirements based on areas. This paper addresses the minimum requirements from Local, State and Federal requirements as well as historical trends in various areas where local AHJs have changed requirements. Based on data collected, additional requirements that AHJs may impose on facilities in various regions or cities will be presented. Updates in the building code as it relates to battery racks and seismic protection and the differences between UBC, IBC, IEEE and NEBS seismic requirements will also be presented.
