There is no State-level plan review, enforcement, or inspection. Local municipalities and counties are free to adopt or not adopt codes. In jurisdictions that are not covered by codes, Illinois Public Act 96-0704 mandates the use of the 2006 or newer version of the IBC for commercial construction. In those municipalities that have adopted building codes, those adopted range from the 1990 BOCA Building Code to the 2015 IBC and IRC. The Illinois State Board of Education has adopted the 2015 IBC, IFC, IMC, IFGC, IECC, IPMC and IEBC for public education Pre-K through 12 occupancies.
Unknown. Individual communities usually adopt on a three year cycle but that is not always the followed procedure.
The Illinois Capitol Development Board’s Division of Building Codes and Regulations only acts as an advisory body assigned the responsibility to assist in streamlining building requirements in Illinois. As Public Act 96-0704 calls for the use of I-Codes that are newer than the 2006 editions, there is no update cycle at the State level.
