Following recommendations from advisory groups, DLI has begun the adoption process for the 2018 I-Codes and the administrative requirements of the State Building Code.
The Construction Codes Advisory Council (CCAC) met June 21, 2018, to review a report from Technical Advisory Groups about seven of the 2018 I-Codes and the administrative requirements of the State Building Code. With the exception of the model residential energy code, the CCAC recommended DLI move forward with the adoption of the 2018 I-Codes with amendments and revisions to the administrative requirements of the State Building Code.
The CCAC will review the model residential energy code at a later meeting following the U.S. Department of Energy’s determination regarding energy efficiency of the 2018 Residential Energy Code.
DLI recently began the formal rulemaking process to adopt the I-Codes by publishing a Request for Comments in the State Register. Follow the rulemaking process and view rulemaking dockets at
