Re: Federal building code future

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The ICBO is currently working with the other two code bodies (BOCA and
Southern Building conference.
I just talked to my boss, who is at the ICBO Annual Business Meeting, this
morning. Boca is hesitent about the International Code series. The three
code bodies plan was to publish the "International Series" Code books. The
published International Building Code is much less restritive than the UBC.
Is published, the State of California may not accept the IBC. For
information regarding the International code series check This
site has info and links to the site for teh international code series.

Good luck
