RE: UBC 1997 for THREE MORE YEARS

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I just thought it ("it" being the decision NOT to adopt the 2000 IBC) was
that we would not be allowed to use a new Code until we have the old one
figured out.

No social promotions!

||I don't think that it is accurate to characterize the recent
||CBSC decision
||as a step backwards for California building safety regulations.  That
||implies that the CBSC decision had the effect of reducing the
||current level
||of safety.  Clearly it does not.  Just because they are not
||moving forward
||(i.e. the 2000 IBC), doesn't mean that they are moving
||backwards.  It would
||be more accurate to characterize the decision as California
||will be staying
||in one place for another three years.

||FYI:
||
||Whittier, CA -- On October 25, 2000, the California Building Standards
||Commission (CBSC) voted to remain on the now outdated 1997
||Uniform Building
||Code (UBC) for another three years and not to adopt the new 2000
||International Building Code. This vote went against the
||recommendation of a
||committee of experts created by the CBSC (2000 Code
||Partnership) to study
||this issue over an eighteen month period. It also means taking an
||unnecessary step backward in California's building safety regulations,
||including its earthquake provisions for the construction of
||homes and other
||buildings.
