Michigan Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA)
Bureau of Construction Codes 


Adopted I-Codes:
2015 Michigan Building Code
2015 International Residential Code (IRC)
2015 Michigan Energy Code
Applicability (statewide, local, limited): STATEWIDE

Plan review, enforcement and inspection is provided statewide, but in most cases the local municipalities provide the enforcement services on behalf of the State. The State provides a Statewide Jurisdiction List to assist users of the code with their permitting needs. 

State inspectors exist for projects where local code officials do not provide inspection. 

Expected date most recent code will be adopted.

Michigan had planned to adopt the 2018 IBC in 2022, however those plans have changed, and they will begin looking to skip the 2018 IBC and begin reviewing the 2021 IBC in 2023.
