Pending Legislation

Proposed adoption of the 2015 International Building Codes

Overview 

The City of Clayton has been using the Building Officials and Code Administrators (B.O.C.A.) Building, Mechanical, Plumbing and the National Electric Codes, with local amendments, since 1957. In 2000, the Building Officials and Code Administrators changed the Code titles to International Codes which were adopted by the City of Clayton in 2001, with amendments.

The 2015 International Codes are the latest model codes presently available, and have been, or will soon be adopted by other surrounding communities. It is anticipated that these Codes will be adopted by the majority of jurisdictions in the United States as well as Canada and Mexico.

The International Code Council (ICC) updates the various codes every three years allowing for new design practices, technology and products to be addressed. Clayton has been under the 2009 Codes since their adoption in 2010.
