||Subject: Do we need new codes every three years?
||Dear List members:
||I was thinking, do we really need a new building code every 
||three years? 
||Really, I do not see new stuff coming up so fast anyway. I 
||feel that if we 
||change the cycle from three to five years, we probably will 
||have better 
||codes that will go through proper review process. Plus less 
||confusion in 
||our Industry. By the time we get to know the new code, we are then 
||presented with a new one. This leaves us open to more errors.
||Your take on it?
||Shafat Qazi, P.E.
