    NYS currently uses modified versions based on the 2006 I-Codes. We are working on updates now and will likely take the big leap this time and base on the most current I-codes. Our committees are just getting started now.

    We are on the 2009 I-codes. I'm working on forming an Advisory Board made up of builders and trades to adopt a new code which might as well be the 2012. We will amend it to meet our local priorities.

    Was on '06. Pitched the '12 to the Board and they said no due to the significant changes.

    Went back to the Board with the '09 which they approved subject to omitting the RFS requirement (delete R313)

    State has mandated the '09 IECC since 2010

    In Massachusetts it is the Board of Building Regulations and Standards. We have an uniform code and towns/cities are not allowed to modify the code, with the exception of the 2009 IECC, which they can modify to the Stretch Energy Code (proposed by the state) which has greater requirements.

    Sitting in an ICC seminar about significant changes between 06, 09, 12 IBC as I type this (lunch break). There are people in here as far back as 03 and some already on 12. Currently on 06 but moving to jurisdiction on 09. Each AHJ is allowed to adopt any edition within 7 years of most recently published.

    Does the ISO, fire district, city council or surrounding city or county have any influence on you to upgrade to a new code?

    I make the recommendation based on a previous precedent of adopting every other Code series. ISO has a small impact on the recommendation, and the Fire District always brings in the RFS. The Board is free to do what they wish outside of the State Plumbing Code and State mandated Energy Code (currently '09 IECC)

    The ISO rating (FWIW) weights the adoption of the most current code heavily, picked up 3-4 point over what we were before, only adopting every other cod cycle.
