Applicable building codes.

(1) Newly licensed assisted living facilities and new construction in existing assisted living facilities must meet the requirements of all the current state and local building and zoning codes and applicable sections of this chapter.
(2) Existing licensed assisted living facilities must continue to meet the building codes in force at the time of their plan approval by construction review services, except that the assisted living facility may be required to meet current building code requirements if the construction poses a risk to the health and safety of residents.
(3) The assisted living facility must ensure that construction is completed in compliance with the final construction review services approved documents. Compliance with these standards and regulations does not relieve the assisted living facility of the need to comply with applicable state and local building and zoning codes.
