State code must be enforced in local jurisdictions.
The NC Building Codes Council adopts every other edition of the International Codes, by statute. It is anticipated that the Council will begin looking at the 2021 editions of the I-codes beginning late 2020 or early 2021, with a potential adoption date at the end of 2021 and effective date in 2022.
At each new code adoption, the state staff carries over NC amendments from the previous code for re-adoption with the new model code.
