Maryland 2021 Code Cycle Adoption Information
State (the Department) has adopted the 2021 edition of IBC, IRC, IECC, IgCC & IEBC for;
Washington 2021 Code Cycle Adoption by the FAS Program
All L&I approved 2018 code cycle plans for: Factory-Built Housing and Commercial Structures (modular buildings), Commercial Coaches, and Temporary Worker Housing expire on June 30, 2023.
Beginning May 15, 2023, manufacturers may submit plans to L&I FAS for the new 2021 building code cycle. It is strongly suggested that any plans submitted after May 15, 2023 be designed to the new codes. 2021 building code cycle plans must be designed to the WA State Building Code which includes: 2021 versions of the International Codes with Washington State Amendments, the 2021 Washington State Energy Code, the 2021 Uniform Plumbing Code with Washington State Amendments, and the National Electrical Code (NEC/NFPA 70 – as amended by WAC 296-46B) in force at the time of submittal; currently the 2020 NEC*.
* Washington anticipates the adoption to the 2023 version of the NEC on January 1, 2024. Any buildings being constructed using plans approved under the 2020 NEC will need to be completed within 180 days of the actual WA State adoption date of the 2023 version, or the plans must be updated using the addendum process (fees apply) if you wish to receive inspections and insignia following that date.
