What is the maximum distance in feet of pipe for a run of pipe between a fixture (sink, toilet) to the vent stack?

As part of kitchen renovations a new run of drain pipe has been run and the length of pipe run from where the sink will be to the vent stack is approx. 15 feet.

Here in Philadelphia, It's 12'. Check your local plumbing code. Any length that exceeds that distance is considered "Overrun" If it's new construction, and the Inspector actually carries a tape measure, he may give you a problem.
