RE: ICBO Numbers

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

The main reason you are required to refer to an ICBO report is that you are
probably using a material or methodology that is not in the building code.
There is nothing in the code that specifically refers to ICBO. However, ICBO
happens to be one of the main entities that tests and approves alternate
methods and material, hence people commonly refer to it.

	Could someone please inform me as to where in the building code
(standard construction, not essential facilities) the requirement for
indicating ICBO report approval numbers on the plans and details is located?
	Maybe one of the plancheck experts could clarify this for me?
	Thank you
