Re: 2006 IBC partition loads

No, it's listed as 10 psf for seismic dead load (just like before) in another part of the code.

The 2006 IBC considers the partition load a live load (1607.5).  The UBC treated partition loads as a dead load (1606.2). Is the code implying that the 15 psf blanket partition load does not need to be considered in the seismic weight?
