Projects That Will Not Be Permitted by Dec. 31, 2018
This page is designed to help guide our customers though the transition and change to the 2018 N.C. Building Codes. This guide will be updated as new information becomes available.
Last Updated: July 24, 2018
The 2018 N.C. Building Code family will become effective Jan. 1, 2019. This will replace all state building codes in North Carolina, with the exception of the electrical code, which became effective in June 2018. Please note: The ICC A117.1-09 (Accessibility Code) is still in effect for the 2018 code cycle.
From July 1-Dec. 31, 2018, use of the 2012 or 2018 N. C. Building Codes is allowed. All jobs that have not been permitted by Dec. 31, 2018, must comply with the 2018 N.C. Building Codes.
For more details, please read the July 2018 memo from Code Enforcement Director Patrick Granson.
Code books may be
purchased directly from the ICC. Viewable PDFs are also available on the ICC's site (be sure to click "2018" in the navigation bar near the top of the page).
Please note: The ICC A117.1-09 (Accessibility Code) is still in effect for the 2018 code cycle.
