TO ALL: STATUS OF 2015 CODE ADOPTION IN NH
Per RSA 155-A:10 IV & V The NH Building Code Review Board is authorized to amend the state building code and to review and make recommendation to the legislature for adoption of updated editions and or additional ICC codes as deemed beneficial for the state of NH. Amendments are effective upon affirmative action by the board and shall remain effective for a maximum period of two (2) years unless ratified by the legislature. The Board meets the second (2nd) Friday of the month at 33 Hazen Drive in Concord. The Board’s website.
The BCRB has completed the hearing process for the proposed adoption of the 2015 IBC, IEBC, IECC, IPC, IMC, IRC, & the 2015 ISPSC. A bill has been filed for the upcoming legislative session HB1282. The next meeting is January 15, 2016 for a hearing on the proposed amendment to NEC 210.12 ARC FAULT Protection. At the December meeting a representative from homebuilders addressed the board and briefly covered some of their concerns pertaining to the 2015 IRC. It is reasonable to expect some amendment proposals being submitted by them. Once they become available we will make them available on this website for your review and comments. Board meeting & Agenda
I will keep you posted as progress continues. In the mean time if you have direct questions for the board you may email the board directly.
