ICC Records First 2006 Code Adoptions

FALLS CHURCH, Va. - The International Code Council recorded more than 650 new code adoptions in more than 100 jurisdictions so far this year. The International Building Code is used by nearly 20,000 jurisdictions; the International Residential Code by more than 16,000 jurisdictions; and the International Fire Code by more than 12,000 jurisdictions across the country.

Since their publication last spring, at least 11 jurisdictions have adopted the 2006 International Codes to guide construction and renovations in their communities. In Illinois, Lynwood, South Holland, Streator, and Winthrop Harbor adopted 2006 versions of the I-Codes, including the International Building, Residential, Fire, Energy Conservation, Existing Building, Fuel Gas, Mechanical, Plumbing and Property Maintenance Codes. Two Texas communities, Levelland and Trenton, and two Missouri jurisdictions, Maplewood and Waynesville, also enforce 2006 I-Codes, along with Shelby County, Ala., Springerville, Ariz., and Belleville, Mich.
