The State of Kansas does not enforce a statewide building code, but authorizes local jurisdictions to adopt local building codes. The State Fire Marshal enforces building codes for state owned buildings. Only the Kansas Fire Prevention Code is mandatory statewide. Local jurisdictions may amend the fire code to make it more stringent. The State has adopted the 2006 IECC for commercial buildings however there are no adopted State energy code for residential buildings. The two largest municipalities have adopted the 2018 IBC and IRC.
Codes are adopted and enforced locally. All local jurisdictions can make any amendments they deem necessary in their jurisdictions.
Code amendments do not involve subjects impacting wood construction.
There is currently no plan to move to a state-wide building code.
