I agree. Does anybody have access to any verision of the IEBC? We do not have one. If you have access, can you tell me if it says anything about having to meet current standards when checking for gravity load adequacy under an occupancy change? Or does it allow you to just use whatever engineering methods you choose to prove the capacity?

Well, to be sure, there is at least a MODEL "Existing Building Code." Whether it has been adopted by your jurisdiction or not is another matter. However, if your jurisdiction uses the ICC codes, it's hard to argue against it being at least an "industry standard," legally adopted or no.
