The 2012 IRC Codes went into effect on July 1, 2013. As submitted by LLR, the regulation includes numerous modifications as well as the removal of the mandate for residential fire sprinklers. Thanks to our HBASC Building Codes Committee and its Chairman, Andy Barber, the HBASC was able to make several modifications to the 2012 I-Codes. The HBASC would also like to thank House LCI Chairman Bill Sandifer, Senate LCI Chairman Thomas Alexander, Senator Shane Massey, Senator Kevin Bryant, and Senator Tom Corbin for their guidance, input, and assistance in the review process and safeguarding the rights of homeowners across the state and defending affordable housing for its citizens.
