IFC & IBC on this forum?

ICC / CABO. Was this ICC the International Code Counsil? Can I ask questions concerning the IBC and IFC (Internatinoal Fire code) on this Forum?

RE: IFC & IBC on this forum?

Yes, the ICC is the governing body over all the "International XXXX Codes"

RE: IFC & IBC on this forum?

First there were 3....Southern Building Code, UBC, and BOCA......then there was one....International Code Council (ICC) which is a "merger" of the three major model codes..

Now there are two....the ICC and the NFPA......the NFPA "pulled" their support of the ICC codes due to some internal conflict (not relevant to the question), and wrote their own building code, NFPA 5000, (which is based on the Disney Code I believe

CABO was a joint code by the major three for one and two family residences.  The ICC has taken over the CABO Code and now refers to it as the IRC, International Residential Code.
