Building and Fire Code Adoption Process

What's Next

The State Building Inspector, State Fire Marshal and the Codes and Standards Committee announce intent to adopt the 2022 State Building and Fire Safety Codes based on the 2021 editions of the International Code Council (ICC) documents. 

Technical review of these codes will be conducted by the Committee’s Code Adoption Subcommittee (CAS) along with DAS staff.  This review will begin April 2021 and is planned to be completed January 2022. 

There will be a public comment and legislative approval phase at a yet to be determined time. The projected effective date for the 2022 state codes is October 2022.

A listing of CAS meetings and anticipated subjects is published below.  Changes and additions will be reflected both in the posted meeting agendas and on the web page. 

Anyone interested in receiving informational and update emails may request to be included by e-mailing DAS.CodesStandards@ct.gov. All meetings of the subcommittee are virtual and normally begin at 1.30pm (except the final approval meeting - see below). To attend a meeting, please use the following link or call in number.
