New Jersey Adopts the 2018 International Building Code


Please be aware that New Jersey has adopted the 2018 International Building Code effective September 3, 2019.  There is a 6 month period where either the 2015 or 2018 edition is permitted to be used.  The update to the building code triggers updates to the NFPA Standards that we follow, see reference below for most commonly used standards.
