On July 1st, 2013, the 2012 editions of the International Building Code, Residential Code, Mechanical Code, Fire Code, Energy Conservation Code, and Uniform Plumbing Code replaced the earlier 2009 editions.
These codes have been substantially amended by the State Building Code Council. In order to accurately determine code requirements, it is necessary to read the codes and their amendments together.
The Department of Building and Planning has prepared the attached brochure "2012 Significant Code Changes - Ten (or more) Things You Must Know" to assist you in your review of the changes.
