NCTCOG's Regional Codes Coordinating Committee (RCCC) and its four advisory boards conducted multiple meetings to review the latest editions of the model codes to develop regional amendments. Their review and recommendations are 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 as expeditiously as their local code adoption process will allow.
Explanation of Options A and B:
Please note that as there is a wide range in firefighting philosophies / capabilities of cities across the region, OPTION “A” and OPTION “B” are provided in the Fire and Building Code amendments. Jurisdictions should choose one or the other based on their firefighting philosophies / capabilities when adopting code amendments.
The International Codes Council provides a "Code Adoption Toolkit ", including background information, technical papers, supporting documents, and more. The toolkit is available free at www.iccsafe.org/gr/pages/resources.aspx.
