Seminars To Address 2012 I-Code Changes
March 18, 2011

Every three years the International Codes published by the International Code Council are updated to improve safety and allow for new products and technologies. Changes to the 2012 International Building Code (IBC) include wind-load provisions, occupancy clarifications and removal of the requirement to measure a guard from the top of any adjacent fixed seating. Modifications in the 2012 International Residential Code (IRC) include a simplified method for wall bracing, seismic design changes for concrete footings and several changes involving sprinklers. Revisions to the 2012 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) affect the thermal envelope, HVAC systems and electrical systems.

ICC will present a series of seminars to address 2012 I-Code changes customized to meet the needs of code officials, architects, engineers, contractors and builders. The 2012 Codes Update Training Seminars will introduce construction industry professionals to major changes in the 2012 I-Codes compared to the 2009 editions. Changes are clearly identified in course material handouts. Expert instructors discuss the reasoning for each modification and present knowledge review questions to ensure participants have a comprehensive understanding of the code changes. The 2012 I-Codes are expected to be available in May 2011.
