Repeal of NH Amendments to IBC Chapter 5

On Friday March 14, 2014 the NH Building Code Review Board voted to approve an amendment, submitted by NHBOA, to remove all New Hampshire amendments to the International Building Code 2009 Building Height and Area section 506. Chapter 5 of the IBC 2009 should be now used as as printed by the International Code Council. 

Please note this is not a retroactive amendment. Each jurisdiction will need to determine for itself how this change will affect any projects that are under current review or design.

Many in the design, construction and building inspection professions practicing in New Hampshire have been waiting for this action for the last 12 years.
