File Size: 12.06 Mb

The International Building Code (IBC) is a model code that provides minimum requirements to safeguard the public health, safety and general welfare of the occupants of new and existing buildings and structures. The IBC is fully compatible with the ICC family of codes, including: International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), International Existing Building Code (IEBC), International Fire Code (IFC), International Fuel Gas Code (IFGC), International Mechanical Code (IMC), ICC Performance Code (ICCPC), International Plumbing Code (IPC), International Private Sewage Disposal Code (IPSDC), International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC), International Residential Code (IRC), International Wildland-Urban Interface Code (IWUIC) and International Zoning Code (IZC).

The IBC addresses structural strength, means of egress, sanitation, adequate lighting and ventilation, accessibility, energy conservation and life safety in regards to newand existing buildings, facilities and systems. The codes are promulgated on a 3-year cycle to allow for new construction methods and technologies to be incorporated into the codes. Alternative materials, designs and methods not specifically addressed in the code can be approved by the code official where the proposed materials, designs or methods comply with the intent of the provisions of the code (see Section 104.11).

The IBC applies to all occupancies, including one- and two-family dwellings and townhouses that are not within the scope of the IRC. The IRC is referenced for coverage of detached one- and two-family dwellings and townhouses as defined in the Exception to Section 101.2 and the definition for “townhouse” in Chapter 2. The IBC applies to all types of buildings and structures unless exempted. Work exempted from permits is listed in Section 105.2.
