FALLS CHURCH, Va. — The 2003 International Building and Residential Codes, developed and published by the International Code Council, will be the base documents for the Florida Building and Residential Codes. The Florida codes will contain amendments to the International Codes (I-Codes), including modifications to address the state’s strict hurricane standards. The Florida Residential Code will be a first for the state.

Construction industry representatives expressed their support for the I-Codes to the Florida Building Commission, which selected the I-Codes from several codes it reviewed. To safeguard its residents, Florida already enforces statewide the International Fuel Gas, Mechanical, and Plumbing Codes.

In addition to the state of Florida, hundreds of cities across the nation with a wide range of populations are adopting and enforcing ICC building safety and fire prevention codes. Recent cities to adopt I-Codes include Houston; Fountain Hills, Ariz.; Toledo, Ohio; New Rochelle, N.Y.; Anchorage, Alaska; Fargo, N.D.; and Lakewood, Colo.

For more information on the I-Codes, visit www.iccsafe.org.
