Building Codes

At yesterday’s Reference Services Committee meeting we received a request for a 2012 Uniform Plumbing Code.  We were initially concerned that we’d be purchasing something in May and weeding it months later.  But in looking at the SBCC (State Building Code Council), we learned that new editions of codes are most often adopted the year after the new code is published.  So while there are now 2015 plumbing, mechanical, building, and fire codes in print, they have not been adopted.  We will purchase the 2015 copies in early 2016 in expectation of their adoption in July, 2016.
