Is a drain pan required under a washer machine.

I did a new construction home here in Johns Island SC. I was under the impression that a drain pan was required to be fitted under the washer machine and plumbed to the outside if the machine was installed on the second floor. Does anyone know if this is true? Every other new construction home also had this. Thanks

As far as I'm concerned, it ought to be a requirement. Alas, it isn't required by any code that I'm familiar with.
