[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The 1997 UBC (as published in the California Building Code) has been in effect in California since 1998 or so. Finally it will be replaced at the end of the year with the 2006 IBC.

Subject: UBC 1997

There are frequent references to UBC 1997 in this list. As old as that code is, does it continue to be allowed by the permitting agencies? Considering that the methodologies to calculate wind and seismic loading have changed significantly, why has UBC 1997 not become defunct?

Do ISO 9002 certified institutions still use UBC 1997?
