State Building, Fire Safety and Fire Prevention Codes Update


The Codes Amendment Subcommittee met on June 24, 2020, and voted to continue with the adoption of the 2018 I-Codes and the 2020 NFPA 70: National Electrical Code. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the adoption process, it is now anticipated that the next Connecticut State Building Code, Connecticut State Fire Safety Code and Connecticut State Fire Prevention Code will have a target effective date in the final quarter of 2021.


As part this revised adoption process, a technical review of the 2021 I-Codes will be undertaken to identify any significant changes that should be brought forward into the adoption of the 2018 I-Codes. There will be a window for public code change proposals to be submitted, the dates for which will be established and published in the near future.


Please visit the Code Adoption web page for the latest information.


Please visit the Codes and Standards Committee and Codes Amendment Subcommittee web pages for meeting schedules and related details.
