These codes may not be the most current for all categories. Go here for the newest list of codes and amendments

NCTCOG's Regional Codes Coordinating Committee (RCCC) and its four advisory boards conducts multiple meetings to review the latest editions of the model codes to develop regional amendments. Their review and recommendations were endorsed by NCTCOG's Executive Board.  Currently NCTCOG encourages jurisdictions in North Central Texas to adopt the following model construction codes along with their respective regional amendments with a consistent effective date of January 31, 2008.

* Senate Bill 5 (SB5), 77th Texas Legislature, states that amendments to the statewide energy code may not result in less stringent energy efficiency requirements in nonattainment areas and in affected counties. Further, SB5 requires the Energy Systems Laboratory (ESL) at the Texas Engineering Experiment Station of the Texas A&M University System to assist in determining the impact of local amendments to the energy code. Members of the ESL were involved in the code review process to ensure that the recommended regional amendments to the 2006 International Energy Conservation Code and the energy efficiency chapter of the 2006 International Residential Code were not found to result in less stringent energy efficiency requirements than the statewide energy code.

The International Codes Council provides a " Code Adoption Toolkit ", including background information, technical papers, supporting documents, and more. The toolkit is available free at http://www.iccsafe.org/government/Toolkit/index.html.
