Re: UBC 1988 VS UBC 1997

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The 1997 UBC is published by ICBO.  The 1998 CBC is the  product after the various California agencies have made their revisions (which are more restrictive than  the base UBC) so the 1998 CBC is a modified UBC with teh California amendments..

Hello,
 
Our Structural Code is based on the UBC 1988.
What are the major differences between the two?
Is  UBC 1997 safer than UBC 1988.
 
Thank you in advance.
