Re: When does 97 UBC go into effect

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The state of California mandate for adoption of the UBC is July 1, 1999.
The state mandate is the enforcable date regardless of the local adoption.
The state mandate does not include the administrative sections. If a local
has not adopted the codes at the local level, they must still enforce the
1997 UBC (1998 CBC).
